Auburn Receives Their National Championship Rings (Pictures)

Even if Mark Cuban thinks championship rings are played out, several teams still believe in them (including his Mavericks). Two teams received their rings in the past few days for winning titles. The Packers got their Super Bowl rings, and Auburn received their rings for winning the national championship in college football. Here’s a close up picture of Auburn’s three rings courtesy of wide receiver Emory Blake:

Three rings seems excessive, but one is for winning the SEC, the other is for winning the BCS National Championship, and the third is for winning the NCAA championship. Maybe Auburn is just trying to provide its players with more streams of revenue in case they decide to pawn the rings in the future. Here’s another look at the rings courtesy of Travante’ Stallworth:

Pretty nice looking, but of course they don’t have anything on the pro’s championship rings.

    First of all, I am not aware of an NCAA championship in football, so one of the rings is sort of bogus.  Secondly, the players had better take good care of those rings because in a few years when the NCAA and other authorities finally get to the bottom of the Cam Newton mess, the BCS title will probably be vacated.

    Gene – the middle ring is the Associated Press Championship ring, the championship Auburn won’t have to vacate.  Kind of ironic that the entire SEC refuses to recognize USC’s 03 AP Championship, but Auburn sure as hades made themselves a very ostentatious ring for their AP Championship.
