    That big ol’ thang is a ring? nawwwwww

    Vandy paperweight. Probably coated in cubic zirconia and stained with sterling-like silver. $20 bucks at Dollar General.

    why must we always put down accomplishments of others? It sometimes appears to be arrogance and sometimes even like we are trying to overcome some type of wierd inferiority complex.

    We are national champions, everyone knows it. Why belittle others for their wins. Vandy did beat us last year for the Tourney championship. They deserve to promote that. We won the national title and deserve to promote that (and do).

    Vandy deserves congratulations not demeaning.

    Open season now on my thoughts. lol

      4 – You’re telling me it’s not a coincidence that they’re handing these out the night they’re playing the team they beat in the SEC Championship? Excuse me if I hold back my congratulations.

    They aren’t even SEC Champs, they are SEC TOURNAMENT Champs. BIG difference! I wonder who was the regular season champs…

    I don’t remember who were SEC champs, but I think they were undefeated.

    1) LISTEN TO ME— LISTEN TO ME. This is Vandy’s night. You had you night. This is for vandy —- ‘wounded vet enters the building’

    I agree with #4, to an extent. No need to give fodder to the Vandy players. We should win handily but that gym is a unique place that can make good teams stumble.

    We should just start taking these things as a compliment. If other teams overcelebrate when they beat you it just means they value it. That should be interpreted as a good thing. Just smile at them and say “thank you”. That’s probably the best way to annoy them as well 😉

    What else are they going to give out?

    7 – Mrs T. What better night to hand them out? Don’t get me wrong, of course we have bragging rights, nicer ring etc etc etc It’s just a feeling that EVERYTHING about other schools and fan bases aren’t all bad. Let them do what they do. Folks get it that their celebration is way below the one we had (and continue to have). Besides that, keep up the good work. I know how tough it is to jeep coming up with story ideas.

    I hate Vandy. I remember clearly. Their students making “UK2Gay” t-shirts. Eff them, and eff their mommas too. Elitist punks.

    4/11- go away you whiny little girls! Why in the hell should we not make fun of other teams for mediocre success. This would be like our football program BS(before stoops) getting rings for making a bowl game. Not winning it, just making it!

    This isn’t that bad as IU(a program with history) did for a sweet 16.

    17. while I understand you points, Vandy was one of only two teams to beat us last year (although the game didn’t mean too much to us at that point) and they made the tourney. I might rate that a little better than mediocre success on the grand scale. Compared to us though, of course, you are right. It was mediocre.

    So you all are telling me that if Louisville fans starting bragging about their final 4 run last year, you wouldnt remind them who the national champs are??? YEAH RIGHT, STFU. Vandy can suck it thinking they are cute handing these out. Although I do get it. But still you just want us to keep our mouths shut? No way, grow a pair.

    #4 isn’t this their first SEC game of the season. They also likely want to encourage fan turnout for a game on national TV against Kentucky. It helps to actually have fans for a home court advantage other than having a horribly engineered court.

    Sorry that #4 was supposed to be to TT at #7

    I have no problem with them wanting to celebrate that accomplishment… it was one they don’t have very often so good for them. I do think it’s silly for them to do it on the night they play us. Is it supposed to be a jab? Because I think we all know how things played out in the games after that. I just thinking the timing is poor when the only way it can be interpreted is a poorly attempted jab at us…

    #2 Dolla sto takes $20s?

    #14 Vandy having them made in the first place is funny. Tyler said she thought it was “cute” nothing more nothing less…

    Of course it is a jab at us!

    That’s cute, but how is Jay doing?



  29. Dear UL and IU fans, We are national champions; you are not. The end.

    Adorable.

    I would think they would be embarrassed to give out SEC Tournament Champion rings on the night they are hosting the defending NATIONAL CHAMPIONS. Some people have self respect.

    LOL, some have NONE

  32. 18 is right. I think this is more understandable than IU doing the Sweet 16 rings. Can you imagine Bama doing rings if they ever went to the Papa John’s Bowl?

    I’d be a lot more hyped if they were giving out donut rings

    Why do the people that say they don’t like a post, go to the comment section and write the longest comments on it, saying how little they care?

  36. Oh, and I would LOVE to have a replica of the UK ring. That would be just…too…suh-WEET!!!
