These are the only things you need remind yourself of whenever you think of Chris Weinke. The former minor-league baseball player turned Seminole led FSU to the hallowed title game in each of his three seasons as signal caller.
In 1998, Weinke managed a 9-1 record before going down late in the season to a broken neck injury, which would keep him sidelined for the Seminoles close loss to Tennessee in the desert.
The following season Weinke did the unthinkable, the impossible, and the unbelievable.
