You Can’t Mock Kentucky’s Bowl Rings After Seeing Oklahoma State’s

When the Kentucky football team received rings celebrating their TaxSlayer Bowl appearance and Governor’s Cup victory, plenty of people picked up their torches and pitchforks.  Criticism came from all directions, including Kentucky fans, but it’s not the most ridiculous college football ring from the 2016 season.

Mullet man Mike Gundy guided the Oklahoma State Cowboys to an Alama Bowl victory.  We can all agree, they deserve a ring for their bowl win.  It’s what’s on the side of the rings that makes them abnormal.



Oklahoma State had a 10-3 record, not 11-2.  Gundy isn’t counting the Cowboys last-second loss to Central Michigan.  The game ended on an untimed down, an untimed down Central Michigan should not have been awarded.  The Cowboys lost on a miracle play thanks to an official’s error.

Even though they were wrongfully handed a loss by the officials, Oklahoma State still got embarrassed by an unbelievable Hail Mary.  If I was wearing the ring, the edited record would only remind me of that painful loss every time I wore it.  It’s silly to change the ring, but I can’t hate on anybody’s athletic ring because I wish I had one.

“They hate us, cause they ain’t us.” – Mike Gundy, probably.

    I’m pretty sure you would be ok with this if UK did it.

    I agree with Billy Bob. You guys are making it difficult to make fun of anybody these days.

    When you try to make fun of a team that went 10-3 or 11-2…

    in order to distract from your own team coming home and telling mom they’re gay (not really gay but they feel gay from the coddling from a desperate Athletic Director and his coach throwing money into the wind) then – you don’t get it.

    UK, you win 10+ games then you can give each player a campus accessible UK themed golf cart with gold 22’s on them.

    When you barely win enough games to go bowling, and of your 6 wins to become eligible only beat one team that had a winning record, weren’t even listed in the top 45 of the seasons final rankings then you should go hide the ring (as long as you aren’t a senior). Seniors can tote that shit all day… because THEY can’t get anything else.

    Isn’t this alot like Calipari taking credit for wins that were expunged from his record? I wonder if the NCAA will send a cease and desist letter to Oklahoma…?

      Hey there Card fan. When was the last time you heard Calipari talk about his win total? Did you see it on his LinkedIn profile? The answer is, he doesn’t care, and neither do UK fans.
