Urban Meyer promised his team if they went undefeated that they would be recognized and not forgotten. He's lived up to that, as tributes have sprung up all around the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

Today, they got something even better: rings (and gold pants).

I had no idea how small gold pants were until just now.

It's not that the pants are small, it's that these "championship style" rings are HUGE. Met a guy from one of Earle Bruce's Big Ten title teams once, and that ring was m a s s i v e.

Gold Pants are only small until you sell them...then the NCAA makes them big

True story - couple of years ago while checking out the "Pawn Stars" pawn shop in Las Vegas, we saw a couple of pairs of gold pants in the display case. Couldn't get Dad to spring the $5k to buy them, though.

jbarnes2105's picture

5k wow! I saw the episode where they bought those. I don't remember the exact amount but im fairly confident they paid less than 400$.

AndyVance's picture

Yeah, apparently they're a high-profit item... I think they had two pair at the time.

Colorado Buckeye's picture

I don't think a player should ever sell them... then again, as soon as I have $5K I'm buying a pair!

Sweet!  Anyone know if M!chigan's 8-5 commemorative rings have been given out yet?  It would be neat to put those images side by side and compare.

Ya hoke got his team their 8-5 rings but theirs is onion rings instead of jewelry rings.

Hoke would never share onion rings.

They decided to write a book about it instead

They had a tougher SOS due to playing Bama, therefore 8-5 > 12-0 #MGoLogic

I think the Wisconsin Rose Bowl rings would be worth more.  After all, as a collector, who wouldn't want the loser rings on the 3rd place team IN THEIR DIVISION??? How rare/collectible is that?

I don't think those pants are going to fit.

Very nice!!Glad they got what they deserved!! Will make future teams work even harder for that crystal ball and insentives!!

This isn't a 100% happy moment (you can't recognize a 12-0 season without remembering why it wasn't a 13-0 or 14-0 season), but 95% happy moments are still worth celebrating. Kudos to Meyer for fulfilling the promise, and everyone who received a ring for their part on a pretty darn good team.

Ceci n'est pas une signature.

Poison nuts's picture

This is damn cool! It obviously sucked to have won all your games & then not go to a bowl, but that ring is not a bad reminder of what they accomplished. Just don't sell  Nevermind...Congrats Buckeyes!

The rings and pants are embedded with a device that emits an ear-splitting shriek if they come within 100 feet of a tattoo parlor.

Italics are for emphasis.

But are they better than Hoosier basketball Sweet 16 rings?

Jonnferrell's picture

Well deserved rings for one of the greatest seasons ever.  Should be a movie about that season with all the crap those guys went through and came through undefeated.  Better get a lot of gold chains ready, because Mom's gettin' gold pants, Grandma's gettin' gold pants next year, then there's always girfriends, aunts . . . . hahahahahahah!

Hello, plot twist!

Now that the esteemed Mark May has weighed in, there can be no doubt as to the validity of the celebration.

Seeing as how Mark May would have no idea what it feels like to go 12-0 at Pitt, I don't believe his opinion actually counts towards anything tangible.

12-0 was earned. #deserved.

MM has an integrity meter?  I didn't think he knew the meaning of the word.

But I did hear somewhere that
MARK MAY WEARS WOMEN'S UNDERWEAR!

Indiana won the regular season championship & deserve a ring. scUM - like the Fab Five - won nothing. 

Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

The "1" in "12" is probably too close to the edge of the ring to make this work, but if someone skilled in Photoshop (I'm not) could please make it a "72-0" ring and tweet the pic to May, it would make me laugh.  A lot.

Oh my god, we have a winner.

Exactly! I live in SEC country and these fools down here think this will never end. I just smile and let them dream their little dream and live in fantasy land. But I know just as the entire Buckeye Nation knows that either in 2013 or at latest 2014 season The Crystal Ball comes back home to where it belongs in Columbus Ohio!

Because they wouldn't let me go for 3!
