Florida State fans are still celebrating the Seminoles' national championship victory Monday night, but the manufacturer of a title game T-shirt made an embarrassing gaffe. The shirt on sale early Tuesday morning on Seminole Shop, which is the "official online store for Florida State athletics," showed an incorrect final score on the shirt. Instead of a 34-31 Seminoles victory, the graphic reversed the score, depicting a 34-31 victory by the Auburn Tigers. The Seminoles, of course, won the BCS championship Monday night on a dramatic final-minute touchdown pass by Heisman Trophy quarterback Jameis Winston. A spokesman for Fanatics, Inc., which is the site's Jacksonville-based parent company, blamed the product's quick turnaround for the error. "As a company that prides itself on providing the best shopping experience for sports fans, we go to great lengths to display hundreds of championship items as efficiently as possible immediately following each championship game," Meier Raivich stated in an email to FOX 13 in Dallas. "Unfortunately, during the process of uploading images quickly so Seminole fans can celebrate the big victory, one FSU T-shirt image inadvertently reflected the incorrect final score. Once the error was detected, it was immediately corrected. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused."
