Late Sunday evening, Auburn players feverishly began tweeting out photos of the championship rings, and really it’s hard to blame them. If I got my paws on the rings seen above, I would’ve done the exact same thing. I mean, just look at ‘em.
The players received a ring for winning the SEC, for winning the BCS, and even one for winning the NCAA. Apparently it takes only one perfect season to nearly fill up an entire hand in jewelry. Even if this jewelery must cost less than $415 a piece.
Now, the feedback on these rings has been strong and obvious, given the circumstances surrounding Auburn’s best player last season and the controversy that took up a large portion of the college football headlines last fall.
It took less than a minute for the first “save the receipt” type comment to hit the web, and you’ve probably got a few jokes still saved up from the 2010-11 campaign. Jokes aside, you have to admire the cost-effective finger-bling here.
