Noles SEC champs? Has a nice ring to it for one guy


Published:

All those Florida State fans who have wished the Seminoles played in the Southeastern Conference will love this championship ring.

Former Florida State offensive lineman Menelik Watson posted a picture of the championship ring he earned by being a part of last season's Atlantic Coast Conference title winners.

Problem is, it has SEC Champions engraved on the side.

Watson tweeted on @MenelikWatson71: "Apparently I'm the only player in #Fsu history to win an SEC Championship! #Legendary."

A Florida State spokesman told ESPN.com that no other former players have reported a similar mistake with their rings.

The spokesman added that current players have yet to receive their ACC championship rings.
