Hawaii's WAC championship rings tell the painful truth

Wednesday night, Hawaii received its WAC championship rings...along with a painful reminder of how they failed on the nation's biggest stage.

The all-silver ring, designed by McMackin, features the words "WAC Champions" and "Sugar Bowl" on the front. One side has a depiction of Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach with the words "Hawaii," "12-0," and "Believe."
For the record, Hawaii lost the Sugar Bowl 41-10, ending any discussion of them being a relevant football program.

The 12-0 record is also somewhat of a boldfaced lie, considering that the Sugar Bowl was an actual game and everything. I guess selective memory is easier to swallow than the truth.
