Oklahoma State’s Alamo Bowl championship rings are beautiful – but have been designed on purpose with the wrong season record:
The Cowboys are refusing to recognize their official won/loss record and their loss to Central Michigan.
Oklahoma State’s Alamo Bowl champion rings have turned one of the team’s losses into a win.
When players, coaches and staff recently received their championship rings for winning the Alamo Bowl, their interpretation of the team’s won/loss record was prominently featured.
The side of the football championship rings have Oklahoma State’s record as 11-2, but if you google the official 2016 standings, it’s official won/loss record was 10-3; with losses to Oklahoma, Baylor, and Central Michigan.
The team is counting their first loss of the season, to Central Michigan as a win.
Why? Because, Central Michigan officially won that football game on a Hail Mary pass. That play came on an untimed down following an intentional grounding penalty on Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph. It was 4th down and Rudolph tossed the football away with four seconds left on the clock.
The officials called a penalty and gave Central Michigan an untimed down. This was an error and Central Michigan should not have been given the additional play, meaning the game should have ended.
Officials from both the Big 12 and MAC after the game admitted it was an mistake, though the final result of the game stood.
That’s why Oklahoma State spent the rest of the season treating it as a win, and now they’ve made sure their championship rings have recorded the loss as a win.
