Baylor Nation showed its true colors in force Friday, with the Bears’ season opener and national College Colors Day falling on the same day. Via @BaylorProud, we asked you to tweet photos of how you were flinging your green and gold, and boy did you ever respond — well before the Bears capped off the night with the big win over TCU.
We heard from Bears not only across Texas but as far as Washington, D.C., Illinois, California, Georgia, Maryland, Florida, Missouri, Indiana and even Thailand, and we received pictures of not just Baylor t-shirts but ties, shoes, even baby outfits and pet accessories! Some favorites:

Thanks to the groundswelling of school spirit, we all saw how great the gold looked on television and in photographs, as Baylor got tremendous national coverage the rest of the weekend. What do you say we keep this up? No reason we can’t make every Friday a “Green and Gold Friday,” then show our solidarity as Baylor Nation by continuing to fill Floyd Casey with gold every Saturday.
Not every tweet had a picture; some came in as just text but begging to be shared. See more after the jump:
