TCU’s Rose Bowl, 13-0 rings revealed
Who doesn’t love a good photo of the latest, baddest, championship bling when it hits the Internet? Earlier this week Angry Trey’s Blog, focusing on Dallas and Fort Worth sports such as TCU, provided a first glimpse of the TCU Rose Bowl championship rings the 2010 team is receiving.
At first glance it is hard not to soak in all of those diamonds framing the TCU logo, but I have to agree with Matt Hinton (aka Dr. Saturday) about being displeased with a lack of Horned Frog mascot on the ring. But who am I to bicker?
A side view of the ring shows off the Rose Bowl logo and mentions the back-to-back Mountain West Conference championships in addition to TCU’s 13-0 record last season. Here is a look…
No details on the rings in regards to diamond totals or other information that jewlery buffs will be excited about have been released at this time but by my count there seems to be 33 (possibly 34?) diamonds framing the top of the ring and that is before counting the diamonds on the top of the ring between “TCU” and “Champions”.
As a baseball fan I always compare championship rings to those worn by World Series champions. The San Francisco Giants have yet to play their home opener for the 2011 season today so we will soon learn what the 2010 World Series champions’ rings will look like.
And as for Auburn, I suppose we’re still wondering if they will even receive a BCS championship ring…
