The Florida State Seminoles, your 2012… SEC champs?

SEC Championship - Alabama v Georgia Getty Images

Forget about what the record books or the Internets or even your own eyes may have told you.

Alabama did not beat Georgia in one of the most thrilling SEC championship games ever early last December in the Georgia Dome. Just forget about it; it was merely a mirage.

How, exactly, do we know this? Allow former Florida State and current Oakland Raider offensive lineman Menelik Watson to explain via a photo posted to his Twitter account:

How both FSU and Georgia Tech managed to move from the ACC to the SEC so far under the radar that it goes back to last season is unknown.

Regardless, congratulations to the 2012 SEC champion Florida State Seminoles.


UPDATED 9:24 p.m. ET: Apparently, and shockingly, this was just a big mistake. “The ring @MenelikWatson71 received seems to be an isolated mistake by the company. He will get a replacement,” the school wrote on its football Twitter account.

    He should be happy he got a ring at all. If not for their self-imposed Bowl ban, Miami would have won the ACC Championship.

    That is a real easy mistake, isn’t it? I would at least deal with a company that knows the difference and has a quality control division which at least is functional.

    An “isolated mistake” ha. He ought to keep the original error. It may be worth much more later on, like the inverted airplane stamp….not!

    Kind of appropriate. Alabama fans can add this Florida State vs. Georgia Tech game to the list of other imaginary championships that they believe actually happened.
