Five signs you're a Boston College football fan

1. Your team is ignored and unranked in preseason polls, despite holding the active Division-I record for consecutive bowl wins.

2. Your team fights its way into the Top 25 rankings, only to lose a game to an embarrassing opponent.

3. Your quarterback is good, but not great.

4. Your team climbs back up to a teen ranking in the polls, only to lose the most significant regular season game of the year.

5. At the end of the regular season, your team is ranked between 20th and 25th, and your team is dispatched to a glorified away game for a postseason appearance, while other teams reap millions more dollars for their bowl participation. (Pending.)
