Texas Rings Reportedly on eBay

A ring commemorating Texas' national championship is being auctioned on eBay, the Austin American-Statesman reports. Texas athletic department officials want to know the identity of the player whose ring is being auctioned in case a current member of the team is involved. That would be a violation of NCAA rules. The seller, who would not identify him or herself, also is auctioning a Longhorn ring from the 2003 Holiday Bowl. The seller told the paper that both rings were obtained from former player(s) directly. The title ring is pictured above. Link to the national championship ring on eBay (registration). Update: Kudos to Burnt Orange Nation, who we see had a note on this item yesterday before the good-old mainstream media got on board. Bidding for the title ring ended at $10,100. The reserve was not met. The item had a buy it now price of $20,000
