4.  You constantly think (and speak) in football metaphors.    Lunchtime at your internship = halftime.  Struck up a conversation that cute guy/girl from the coffee shop? Touchdown; just make sure you don’t fumble first.

5.  You have very strong opinions on all the major rivalries. Even if you your school isn’t a part of a famous rivalry, you definitely have an opinion on what team you’re rooting for, from Michigan v. Ohio State to Army v. Navy.
