Not too bad for a team that was not eligible for a championship.

No way.What restaurant was that gumball machine in ?
They cant touch our cock rings
Cannot believe the arrogance and the lack of shame. They were damn lucky not to get MUCH worse penalties and yet they basically tell the ACC to "eff off" and claim themselves champs.

Can't wait to doff their fedora.
They up billboards around Charlotte too celebrating that which never happened.
Folks can knock our rings all they want but at least the celebrated and acknowledged something that actually happened.
Wear Garnet Every Day
Are these only for the choaches? Would it not be a violation if they are given to players? I thought you were only allowed to give out rings or similar gifts if you won a bowl game?
Great point and you may be on to something but even if it were true they have clearly demonstrated they thumb their nose at the RULES AND NCAA!
I didn't come up with this, but thought it was funny enough to share:
At least they'll have a great story to tell one day. I imagine it something along the lines of:
"Did I ever show you my ring?"
"Wow, Grandpa, did you win the Super Bowl?"
"Ha, ha. No, not quite. This is a ring from college."
"Did you win the college championship?"
"No, but we were pretty good. We felt like we could have won a championship if we'd had the opportunity."
"So, you were the best team in your conference or something?"
"Uh...One of the best, yeah."
"Did you beat all the other teams?"
"No....but we were in a 3-way tie for our division and we would have won the tie-breaker."
"So, you played in the conference championship game?"
"Well, not exactly. You see, we weren't allowed to play in it because we broke some rules."
"Oh. What's 8-4 mean?"
"That was our record."
"Was that supposed to be really good back then?"
"It's not bad."
"So, why'd you get a ring? Did you do anything special? Is this like that trophy I got just for playing little league?"
"Look, it's just hard for you to understand because you're a kid. Isn't it time for you to go home? Why do you ask so many dumb questions?" (some tears) "We had a billboard, you know! If you have a billboard, it's real!"
