If you see one of Florida State's championship rings you're never going to forget the final game of the BCS era.
And you may be temporarily blinded.
The school revealed the title rings from its 34-31 BCS Championship Game win over Auburn in January and not surprisingly, they're pretty flashy.
The ring features coach Jimbo Fisher's last name on one side and the other has the logo of the final BCS Championship Game and the final score. And it's no coincidence that Florida State's recruiting Twitter handle tweeted out a picture of the rings either. There's no greater tool in recruiting than a championship. Will a coach ever forget to wear his title ring on a recruiting trip in the near future? No way. It could be a fireable offense.
They also look slightly different than the rings available to FSU boosters. They're probably worth more than the approximately $350 FSU was charging donors for them too.
But fear not, Tide fans, you can still brag about your team's 2012 title rings. Since Alabama had three national titles in four seasons, the top of its ring had three footballs. Florida State's only has one.
