Urban Meyer and Ohio State put together a very impressive 12-0 regular season in 2012. It was Meyer’s first in Columbus and it surely didn’t disappoint.
The team, however, was banned from postseason play due to unacceptable actions under the former regime of Jim Tressel.
There was no bowl for a team that was one of the best in the entire country. Instead, the undefeated student-athletes had to watch on from home as Notre Dame and Alabama duked it out for the national championship.
Meyer and the Buckeyes’ brass wouldn’t let the season go unforgotten, however, and on Thursday the team was presented with these “12-0 Champions” rings. “Champions” refers to the Buckeyes winning the Leaders Division of the Big Ten.
The seniors on the team were responsable for the design, according to a SiriusXM interview (via CoachingSearch.com).
The players were also given a miniature gold pants charm to commemorate beating Michigan.
