"WTF" was the first internet term I'd learned. How did I learn it...? Well, it's really simple.
All you had to do was to be present, on the internet in 1994, with a few seconds left to go in a close game between the Michigan Wolverines and the Colorado Buffaloes.
I thought it was a formality. Let Kordell drop back and throw the ball. The unwritten rule is that a "Hail Mary" pass is a "jump ball", so pass interference was rarely called under this scenario.
Why didn't the defense just simply say, "Hold the receivers and knock the ball down". Instead, they'd chosen to try to knock the ball down; unfortunately, the ball skipped across and landed in the hands of Westbrook.
What really sickens me about this was the fact that it turned Kordell Stewart into something he wasn't...a star!
