      Nov. 27, 1983, Bucs and Houston Oilers, who are now the Tennessee Titans, played a game at Tampa Stadium.  Just like now, they were at the time the worst franchises record-wise in 1983, earning the dubious distinction of playing in the very first repus bowl… Venerable Tampa Trib Sports columnist Tom McEwen coined the name 'repus', as the Bucs/Oilers game was essentially the undercard for the upcoming Jan. 1984 Super Bowl to be played at Tampa Stadium. I couldn't make this stuff up...http://tampasportshistory.blogspot.com/2009/02/repus-bowl-i-112783.html
