    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."

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

    Duke will get rings, trophys and banners because they won it outright
    unc runs down to the trophy and pretend to be a champion--PATHETIC
