I got to try one on today. One of my patients came in dressed in Clemson with a huge ring on each hand. When I started talking to him he told me he played on the National Championship team in 1981. On one hand was the NC ring. On the other was the Orange Bowl ring, because this was back when the NC game alternated every year, so he actually got 2 rings for one game. I, of course, asked if I could try them on.
I'm definitely buying a NC ring if we get one in my lifetime.
Yes, that was a time when they either hoped 1 vs. 2 would align in a given bowl or they could manipulate it somehow. I think PSU vs. Miami in the Fiesta in 1987 was one example of this.That was a nice opportunity for you and I’m glad you took advantage if it.
One small correction to his/the account is that there was no NC game yet in 1981. Clemson was voted #1.
If you’re a supporter, such as contribute to The R Fund, contribute to NIL, or simply buy season tickets, you’re a stakeholder, so you get to buy a ring. If you don’t want to buy a ring, don’t buy a ring.I'm not 12 anymore. Rings should only be for the players/coaches/staff. If you buy one of their rings later, so be it.
Anyone who has supported the program through thick and thin, or in our case will have been thin than thick, has earned it, believe me. Through Temple 2002, WV 2006, all OSU games, and a myriad of Syracuse and Penn State games, so many other games that have tested our mettle.No, but will buy something that’s more appropriate to celebrate it. Always feel that a ring is more earned than bought.
Oh we win a National Title, I'm going to be the biggest d*ck ever to my friends who have rubbed it in for years now. I'm going to let them hear it every single chance I get, I've got decades of ribbing to give back. Now I'll probably be in a wheelchair or in a nursing home but I'll be sure to call whoever's still alive.I’ll enjoy it and hold my head high around my PSU and Pitt alum neighbors, but I think rings are for the folks who sacrificed blood sweat and tears for win
Whomever says that is a moron. Will never give up a Big Ten Payday. Very soon we’ll be receiving an amount approaching $100M in TV revenue alone.Which National Championship?
Since many say Rutgers is going give up on high-level football because of NIL and the such.
Al, Will this be a new tradition started by Rutgers the day after that magical game? Because I have yet to hear any other school suggest this. Just think of the possibilities if 50% goes into the R fund.If you’re a supporter, such as contribute to The R Fund, contribute to NIL, or simply buy season tickets, you’re a stakeholder, so you get to buy a ring. If you don’t want to buy a ring, don’t buy a ring.
We will have to agree to disagree. I am all of the above. However I would get laughed at / be embarrassed for anyone that wore a ring of a team I/they didn’t play or coach on.If you’re a supporter, such as contribute to The R Fund, contribute to NIL, or simply buy season tickets, you’re a stakeholder, so you get to buy a ring. If you don’t want to buy a ring, don’t buy a ring.
He bought 3 Devil rings.Why would I get a ring if I’m not on the team?? Weird. My uncle has one from Georgetown 84 team but he was the AD at the time. My cousin has a World Series ring from the cardinals but he was a scout for the team. If you didn’t contribute you have no business wearing a ring
Did you buy a Giants, Mets or Yankees ring when they won?
