2. Fans from all up and down the Main Line are wearing sleeveless Ryan Arcidiacono jerseys in 20 degree weather in the middle of January.

3. The class Facebook pages are FILLED with people looking for last minute tickets.

4. Nova fans across the nation pledge to name their first-born son after the guy who hit a 3-point shot at the buzzer.


6. The tailgate at the Wells Fargo Center has been circled on your calendar for months.

7. Your professor builds his syllabus around a potential trip to the Final Four.

8. The game doesn’t start until 8 p.m. but anything taking place after 5 p.m. is crossed off your schedule, because you’re already in line for the game.

9. You give your little brother slightly misdirected college advice based upon your Big East loyalties.

10. Win or lose, you’ve never been more proud to be a Wildcat.
