    If teams give out rings for losing a bowl game, it's a joke. Louisville included.

    Happens all the time. Louisville gave out rings when they lost in the Belk Bowl and also mentioned winning 5 straight Governor's Cups

    Talking about 5 straight
    This is the ring from when they beat Texas A&M in the Music City Bowl.

    Can you show me the ring they got from losing the Belk Bowl?

    Rings should only be given for Bowl wins, conference titles, or national titles. And unless it's a national championship the rings should be of the inexpensive variety.

    UK doesn't need to make fun of Indiana basketball anymore for these type things. A minor Bowl loss and a Governors Cup win does not equal a celebration ring.

    It isn't uncommon for teams to put winning their rivalry games on rings. Now giving out a ring and losing a bowl game is a different story...

    Here are UC's 08 and '11 Big East Championship rings...Keg of Nails (Lville), Victory Bell (Miami- OH), and River Rivalry (Pitt) trophy all on one side on both rings. (2012 rings went away from the rivalry engravings)

    Pretty sure every school gives a ring for making it to a bowl, win or lose.

    I had no idea that many school did stuff like this. Waste of money. That being said, I'd be happy to have one as a player.

    Now of course UK is saying that these rings are for going to the bowl game but these rings clearly say Governors Cup on the side of the them and make zero mention of the bowl game they were in. I'm confused. Which is it? UL victory rings or bowl game rings that don't mention the bowl game?

    Outrage is hyperbole.

    OK, whatever you want to call it, I'm freaking rolling. Is this where I'm supposed to say the hate is real? I mean that's the canned answer anytime a UK fan criticizes UL, or UNC, or Duke, or insert team here.

    UK fans are criticizing one of those schools 100% of the time. What are you talking about?

    I thought it was common knowledge that almost all football teams give out rings for bowl games.

    For winning yes. I learned today apparently they are given out in losing efforts as well.
