Buckeyes’ FB players get rings? What did they win?

On Thursday, members of Ohio State Buckeyes football staff posted pictures of the team’s new rings, which displays “12-0” across the face.  The Buckeyes finished last season undefeated, but because of The NCAA hit Ohio State with a one-year bowl ban and additional penalties (for violations that started with eight players taking a total of $14,000 in cash and tattoos in exchange for jerseys, rings and other Buckeyes memorabilia),  Ohio State  was ineligible for postseason play.

Head Coach Urban Meyer rewarded the undefeated effort, mostly from players who were not involved in the scandal that led to the school’s NCAA-imposed sanctions, with a rather gaudy-looking championship ring.

“The players won the Leaders division championship of the Big Ten, so they’re going to get rings,” Meyer said during an appearance on SiriusXM College Sports Nation following the 12-0 season.

“We did a little pep rally after the season. I’m going to make sure we’re going to raise a banner in the indoor facility right next to all the national championship banners. We’re going to do quite a few things to commemorate the season.”

Meyer said the rings were selected by a pair of seniors from the 2012 Ohio State defense.

Here’s the photos posted Thursday by receivers coach Zach Smith and sports information director Jerry Emig, which show the gold pants earned for beating Michigan.
