But you’ve also proven that even if you don’t win something, you can get a ring.

You mean, like this one that Auburn handed out in 2004...when they did NOT play in the +1 Championship game?

And their ring proves? That you can make a ring for anything you want?

Basically just that UCF is abiding by the same rules that the "Power" 5 teams apply to themselves.

The difference of course being that Auburn's fake championship ring was just a coaches decision to award his players for he felt was stolen championship. Not a move made by the athletic department. Theres no banner in their stadium and there was no parade. So no UCF is not abiding by the same rules

"Auburn Sports Information Director Kirk Sampson doesn’t remember specifics about the rings’ provenance, but thinks ordering them “was a Coach Tuberville decision,” as opposed to a consensus of the Athletic Department constituting an official claim to the college football throne.

Jeremy Ingle remembers it the same way.

“It was the coaches’ decision,” says Ingle, who started for Auburn at center in 2004. “It came about after the SEC (Championship) game when we realized we were not selected (to play in the BCS National Championship Game) by the voters. It wasn’t something we really concerned ourselves with… we were concentrating on winning the Sugar Bowl and completing a perfect season as that’s all we could control. Everything else was a beauty contest voted on by people who had their own agendas.”

So you guys have just as equal access to the national championship as everyone else does. What's your gripe?
