Information on how to aid the victims of the deadly tornado in Oklahoma
"When Tennessee defeated Florida State in the national championship game, the Seminoles were down to their third-string quarterback, after losing two quarterbacks to injury."
Which didn't stop the bookies from making #2, 10-1 FSU a 3 point favorite over Tennessee-expanding to a 5 point favorite by kickoff. Which didn't stop the sportswhores (i.e. the press) from nearly unanimously picking FSU to beat UT. And it didn't stop that same press from turning into "Seminole Apologists" after the game.
Before the game, Marcus Outzen was called "indomitable" because he beat Florida. After the game, he just some poor helpless third string QB.
The sportswhores made much of Tennessee's "luck" and of their opponents' misfortunes-in essence, cheapening the achievement and spoiling the moment for UT.
One of the reasons it's so fun to talk about 1998 now is because I remember what the sportswhores said before the game and what they said after.
