  • Even practice squad get rings?? That’s new to me.

    • The coaches and roster players vote on who gets the rings. Since the practice squad is with the team all year long and they help the starters get better, they are usually voted to get a ring. Rarely ever does one not receive a ring. Same thing as baseball. If a player is with the team most of the year, and is traded in the middle of the season, they can vote to give him a ring if they thought he had a large part in their success.

  • remarkable, 15 of how many? number somewhere between 24 and about 100

  • About the same number of former SEC players lost their manhood in front of an audience of millions last night.
