Georgia Tech Football has decided that they need to commemorate their first win against Georgia in six or seven years by handing out special rings to all of their players. Now, I can understand it for winning a bowl game or a conference championship…but for winning one game against a rival? I’m pretty sure UGA doesn’t do this when they beat Florida every ten years.
As part of its bowl bounty, Tech is giving each player a ring. Coach Paul Johnson left the design of ring to the team’s seniors. He said the seniors decided to include the score of the Georgia game, 45-42, in the ring’s design. The win snapped a seven-game losing streak to the Bulldogs.
“We could give them $180 or something like that and then they’d spend it,” Johnson said. “Or you could give them that ring and they’ll have it 10 years from now.”
Yes, they’ll have it 10 years from now and will be impressing the ladies, right?
