    I wonder if Duke will put up billboards in Chapped Hole announcing their real division championship. It would be funny.

    Honest question here - do teams really get rings for winning a division? I could understand a banner, maybe, but rings seems a little over the top for anything less than a conference title. I found this quote from Yahoo Sports to be quite interesting...

    "And North Carolina won half of a conference championship too, kind of. It finished in a three-way tie for the Coastal Division title. So, one-third of a half of a conference championship. 16.7 percent. The Tar Heels' ring proudly says their record on the side: "8-4."

    Eight. And. Four. Here's a ring.

    And while it's nice for the players to get rings, you can then say it would be nice for each player to get a ring next year. Beat Purdue in September? Here's a ring. Kick a game-winning field goal? Here's a ring. Pick up that big third and 1 in the first quarter? Here's a ring.

    Rings are being given out for going 5-3 in ACC play and winning a third of a mediocre division in an average conference. Nobody will notice if the bar goes lower."
