LSU’s “championship” rings celebrate second place

Despite a 21-0 shutout at the hands of Alabama in the BCS championship game, LSU players received their “championship” rings recently.

The rings themselves are nice -- you can see the images below -- but there’s one peculiar part of the bling that, suffice to say, one wouldn’t normally see:

Boasting a "#2 Nationally” finish.

That’s not to say I’m scoffing at finishing second; the Tigers went undefeated in SEC play during the regular season and played for a BCS championship. There’s a lot to be proud of there. It’s just, well, different.

Either LSU is preaching the “good job, good effort” attitude, or the victim of some serious (self?) trolling.
