Oklahoma State might not have gotten a chance to play for a national championship, but that didn't take away from the Cowboys' fantastic 12-1 season, which included a Big 12 championship.
On Tuesday, Oklahoma State's Big 12 championship was commemorated with some blingy rings that featured diamonds, the OSU logo, "Big 12 Champions," and the player's names on the side. It was a well-deserved individual token celebrating the best college football season in school history.
Of course, the Cowboys were one game away from being even better. Had it not been for one fateful night in Ames, Iowa, the Cowboys would have played for a national title instead of beating Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl (which is not a half bad accomplishment). But instead of thinking of what might have been, Oklahoma State players can celebrate what was and that ring will serve as a conversation piece for the rest of their lives.
