What’s the college football equivalent of a kid in a candy store? Well, it might be Arkansas players getting new shoes at the start of practice.

For the start of fall camp, Arkansas players received a bunch of new shoes.

And as a video posted by the athletic department makes clear, the Razorbacks were excited. (Hit the link to see the video.) Really, really excited.

Unscientific survey alert: For those wondering, it appears that the Kobe Bryant models enjoyed particularly high levels of popularity among members of the Arkansas football team.

The Arkansas players enjoy scholarships to a major university, the chance for a solid season in the SEC West and even the opportunity to hear thousands of fans calling the hogs at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.

But no matter what comes in 2017, they might not top the levels of excitement for those new shoes.
