A day after Stanford coach David Shaw tweeted out some facts, Stanford put a few of those facts on a ring.
The school unveiled rings to celebrate back-to-back Pac 12 Championships and four straight BCS berths on Wednesday.

Each BCS Bowl – the 2011 Orange Bowl, 2012 Fiesta Bowl 2013 Rose Bowl and 2014 Rose Bowl – is listed atop the ring, while players' names and number are on one side with the 2014 Rose Bowl logo. There were 28 seniors on the Stanford roster in 2013.
But – no pun intended – as Bret Michaels once sang, every rose has its thorn. Going to four-straight BCS bowls is an impressive accomplishment, but in doing so, Stanford became the first team to do it without reaching a BCS Championship.
It's definitely ring-worthy, though. And they're good looking ones.
