Who and whom

Posted by S.R. on December 05, 2003

Keith Jackson, a prominent American sports announcer had a dilemma a couple of weeks ago during a college football broadcast. While surmising possible matchups in the upcoming holiday football season, he said, "Whoever gets whom." He then corrected himself and said, "Whomever gets who." Are they not both incorrect or am I nitpicking here. I think it should be "Whomever gets whom."
