Florida State: 2012 SEC Champions

The part of me that routinely makes mind-numbingly dumb copy-editing errors has sympathy for whichever (soon to be fired) company man that casted this ring. The other part of me says "Wow this is incredibly stupid. How did it get past multiple sets of eyes?"

However it came to be, it did, and thanks to the Raiders' second round pick, Menelik Watson, the former Seminole is apparently the first to win an SEC championship while playing at Florida State. (Over long-time SEC member/foe Georgia Tech, no less.)

Perhaps this is just a scary look into the future, however, when every D-1 footballing institution belongs to the SEC.

So much confusion when I first saw this Buckshot.

HOW CAN THEY WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP WHEN THEY DONT WANT TO PLAY THE TIDE PAAAAAWWWLLLLL

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

I can't wait to hear Mark May go crazy about Florida State getting championship rings for a league they don't even play in.

he won't make a peep since he doesn't get to complain about Ohio State.

I am sure that it will get mentioned. Mark May will say, "They didn't even win the SEC Championship" then transition into, "This is why schools like Ohio State that don't win championships shouldn't get rings."

It's amazing how mistakes like that can slip under numerous checkpoints.
HILARIOUS.

SEC rules all, so easy mistake. SEC ... Speed ... SEC.

Congratulations, FSU!  Hope this makes you feel better.

I don't know why they are complaining.  The ring is so much more valuable as an SEC Championship ring.

It helps if you think of the SEC like Mordor:
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

One does not simply walk into SEC country.

Nick Saban = Nick Satan = Nick Sauron ?

Earle's picture

I find the the Saban/Satan thing to be mildly amusing (though I thought Tuscalucifer from one 11W staffer Chris was particularly good).  I see Saban as more of a Faustian figure than a Satanic one. 
In the Tolkien world, I think the best comparison is Gollum, who is possessed of certain very useful talents, but is corrupted by his desire for the One Ring, and will stop at nothing to obtain it.  Plus, they're about the same size.

Dick Jauron and Nick Saban are siblings? BLASPHEMY.

Well shit, if FSU won the SEC, what did Alabama win? 
I think we has ourselves a controversy.  FSU vs Alabama to decide it.
