Both Sports and Politics bring out very personal and emotional feelings of those who participate in either. Fans are highly involved in connection with their chosen sports teams and are highly passionate. Likewise, people are highly passionate, sometimes even deranged, over their support of certain political parties and politicians.
Hillary Clinton's supporters and Hillary herself cannot seem to get over losing the election to be President in 2016. Even today you will find those who believe that Hillary actually won the election because they want to recreate the rules and forget that there is an Electoral College and why it is there. They want to believe Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election and Al Gore actually won the 2000 election as well. In the same way, people in and around Orlando, Florida, or many of them, are fully convinced that UCF Knights won the 2017 College Football National Championship and have declared themselves as National Champions, held the parades and continue to this day believing that UCF has rights to call themselves National Champions.
