Welcome back, college football: Top social moments from Thursday night
College football season is here, and if you were anywhere near a screen Thursday night, a common theme stood out: happiness. It's one of the greatest times on the field and on the Internet.
It's basically a holiday for college football fans, and they decked the
halls Twitter with festive decorations.
Like schoolchildren, fans woke up early in anticipation of the holiday, and, like these players, couldn't handle the excitement.

Though the clock counted down, no one wanted to wait another second. Especially the players involved in the first FBS tilt: North Carolina vs. South Carolina in Charlotte.
The Head Ball Coach himself couldn't even keep his trademark cool.
And, as toe met leather, it was like finding true love once again.
