2012 Ohio's 12-0 season championship ring
Well, they're already wearing asterisks on their helmets...
Should just be a big ole asterisk in the middle made of diamonds.
That Up North?
The United Nations?
...thinking I must be wrong.
Them Up North
"Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS"
-Cardale Jones, OSU Quaterback
I rest my case.
Ha, "Quaterback". That is a funny word. Made me chuckle.
I want to work this into regular conversation.
"Who Bellomy? I couldn't really call him a quarterback yet, he's more of a quaterback."
Based on the schedule Urban put up in the locker room at the beginning of the season, I'm assuming it means "Team Up North."
Yea, but without a preposition or article in front of it, it sounds even more stupid.
"Hey Urban, who does OSU play Nov. 24 this year?"
"Team Up North"
"Did you just have a stroke? Shouldn't there be another word there?"
"We will beat Team Up North."
"IS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE?!?!"
Family love Michael
Whooopty dooo basil
does it all mean?
Is that a marijuana leaf on the one ring?
Are you a cop from Tennessee?
I'd get TSUN as "that school up north" but what is TUN?
I think that is just their explanation after they realized they screwed up TSUN.
I guess they love Bo's "The Team The Team The Team" speech as much as we do.
I was hoping that it was going to be THE school Up North
Well, score one for reading the article. If they've actually used "that team up north" then I guess that's reasonable. For some reason I think of them as saying "that school up north" though.
Probably because even they realize they'll never beat the school up north. The team up north they have done pretty well against recently, but the school up north is most definitely undefeated against them.
Leaders Division Champions!!! Whoo Hooo!
Do they also hang "Round of Thirty Two" banners at Value City Arena?
I just bought one on eBay. The seller was Braxton5.
Street value in Columbus = half ounce or 3" x 3" O tatoo (color not included)
Get a solid 2, maybe 3 tats for that bad boy.
Fancy way of paying players
foot the bill for team rings??
should be up in a few minutes
I know its a rivalry but I must admit that is some grade A trolling. I am very impressed with what you did! Nice jab at your rivals.
Like he is worried about a car payment or paying for gas.
Everybody click the link and choose Best Of in the top of the post. This way, it gets publicity!
Awesome, confirmed on my Craig's List iPhone Ap... Love it.
Let us know how many offers you get...
The big question now is: How many people have offered to buy it?
zero. I think my only responses have been from fellow Michigan fans. One asked if I was Braxton, fwiw
Michigan: Sugar Bowl Champions, coach says season was a failure.
Ohio: Don't win any championship, better make some rings.
I'm sure I could easily pick one up to see for myself. They have had them like a week now which means its time to pay those bills.
TUN stands for Team Up North....
Which is super retarded.
What do you expect from such a delusional school and fanbase?
Is it any more retarded than us calling them Ohio?
They call themselves Ohio. So... Yes
Firstly, Ohio was not champion of anything. Second, who would want a ring with a picture of weed on the side?
Of the Leaders division.
To some it looks like marijuana.
To me it looks like a big green asterisk.
+ 1000 for the big green asterisk comment .
where everyone who supports the program that gives out the rings loves it (there's an entire thread on this at 11W), and everyone else thinks they're tools for doing it. I think it's pretty lame, but I can see why Meyer and crew would do it - it's probably a good motivator for the players and is a nice "thank you" for what turned out to be a better-than-expected season for those guys.
They can make whatever jewelry they want down in Ohio, the only thing that pisses me off is knowing that we lost to those guys last year. If we win The Game in 2013, all will be right in the world and they can make themselves Faux Championship gold teeth for all I care.
Which bowl game did they play in again?
I mean they could say perfect season or something, but championship? What, of the division? Is that something the losing teams in the conference championship game have done before?
I wonder if Urban showed these plans to Peppers and Hand when they came to town. I can imagine their reactions were something like, "Oh... Cool ring bro... What did you win again?" I would expect a lot of recruits from outside Ohio to think these are a pretty lame attempt at trying to manufacture glory since they've been to big time schools and seen, you know, real championship rings...
Deep down we would know that its super lame, just like you do. Might we also refuse to openly acknowledge it, like you, possibly.
but ask yourself this question honestly. If any other program besides your own had done this under the exact same circumstances, would you really think this wasn't a lame idea?
the reason he'd want to honor/reward the players. The issue for me isn't the overall concept, it's the execution. Making championship rings when no championship was won seems bush league.
This is comming from an alum, but can you honestly look in the mirror with a straight face and say going undefeated this year is any thing special in the Big Ten? To put this in persepective, Northwestern was about 5 minutes 14 seconds from going undefeated in the Big Ten as well. Everyone was down (including OSU) this year which makes this undefeated regular season hallow compared to others during the BCS era. Urbz was right to acknowledge their accomplishments so they could feel special (12-0 row, additions at WHAC, etc. ) but the rings took things too far IMO. You can go 12-0 all you want but in 2012 you have to remember why the team didn't go further. This isn't to say I'm not proud of their accomplishments and acknowledgements, but its something in the back of your mind...
Sidenote: Its always easy to find which OSU fans are easily offeneded by things Michigan commenters say. Lol! Sit back and find the humor in comments, jeez!
Meyer wanting to recognize the efforts of a team that had a very good season with nothing to play for at the end. My only issue is knowing that 12-0 was likely only possible because they couldn't play in a bowl game. Nobody would make 12-1 rings and OSU would certainly have played Bama and gotten trucked. Not as bad as ND but they would not have won that game.
They certainly could have had big ten rings in that scenario but likely would not have been in position to have rings to celebrate an undefeated season.
Agree with your comments above 100%.
Congrats on getting rings for an undefeated season that you have nothing to show for. And everyone else outside the city of Columbus will remember your season by one simple word: asterisk.
I don't have a problem with this. 12-0 is 12-0. We'd have done the same thing.
seperate those who seek NOT to want to do right and those who WANT to do right,when no ones looking.
Sorry, but the kids on the 2012 Ohio team had nothing to do with the violations. That's why I don't have a problem with it.
something to pawn this year.
What is this Woodson business you keep mentioning? I've never heard anything about it before.
I literally had never heard about this before, and I've been a die hard fan for over 30 yeras. I just tried googling it but couldn't find anything conclusive. Is this in the same category as Clarrett where everyone knows he took money but it was never proven, or is there more ambiguity surrounding Woodson's situation?
Charles Woodson was brought in to testify against an agent, Marion Darnell Jones, because it was believed that Jones provided Woodson with over $14,000 in "improper benefits" during the 1997 season.
The main pieces of evidences were receipts from Jones' company, "Summit Management" that showed the purchase of a $5,000+ fur coat that was gifted to Woodson's mother, a paid trip to Myrtle Beach for Woodson, and the a tuxedo bought for Woodson 2 weeks before his Heisman ceremony.
is forced and not clever at all. Ohio has a ring to it and it gets under their skin. I feel like Urban felt the need to be cool too so he tried to force the nickname. Nicknames that are longer than the original name are usually failures
but Urban forced a revival of it in response to the Michigan's widespread use of Ohio and it always feels really forced
At pawnshops and tatoo parlors throughtout Columbus.
A Debbie downer sometimes, but this is fucking ridiculous. How in the hell are some of you saying this is not a bad idea? What are they the champions of exactly? This is simply a very pathetic cry for some Acknowledgment for what exactly? I'm not really sure.. Fuck them suckeyes!
I think I'm going to make myself a "Championship" ring too.
