It's all just a different game. As far as I'm concerned, college football as we know it didn't even come into existence until the late 60's/early 70's.

We got one in 68 or 69. I know a guy with a ring to prove it.

Sure looked like a smart azz comment. Others thought the same too

Maybe a "j/k" or a sarcasm face might go along way towards your true meaning

You're thinking of '67. OSU won the title in '68 and Texas in '69.

That, or it's an SEC Championship ring from '69.

I was pointing out hypocrisy from someone making fun of Bama for claiming a math system title. I quoted the comment in question, so that should have been somewhat obvious.

You're right. It was 67 and Litkenhous named Tennessee national champs. The rings weren't actually made until 40 years later when some of the players from that team let it be known that it was BS that we were handing out rings for winning the division yet they had an NCAA recognized national title and hasn't gotten squat.

That title isn't on the NCAA's list of recognized championships. But those players should have rings if the school is gonna claim it.
