The website Sports Fan Graph tracks Twitter followers and Facebook 'Likes' for different college athletics programs and conferences. Boston College currently ranks 96th behind such college athletics powerhouses as the Rhode Island Rams (86) -- which play FCS football -- and the Georgia State Panthers (88), which started playing FCS football just last season.
In the ACC, BC was only ranked higher than Virginia Tech and Virginia, whose ADs apparently never saw the movie The Social Network, and Maryland, which despite having, like, invented the search engine, doesn't have a Twitter account or Facebook page listed on the site.
Seriously though ... 96th?! This is fixable, people.
All you have to do is start following @bcsportsnews on Twitter and 'like' Boston College Athletics on Facebook (and hell, while you are at it, be sure to follow us on Twitter, and 'like' us on Facebook too). Each Superfan that does this will improve BC's standings by 2 whole points! We are gunning for you, TCU. You can kiss 95th place goodbye, silly Horned Frogs.
