A Story With a Familiar Ring

Another championship ring from Texas' 2005 season has been listed on eBay. The ring, belonging to former Longhorn lineman Terrance Young, had a bid of $9,100 at the time of this posting, with the auction continuing until Saturday.

A Texas title ring was posted last May on eBay. It was never determined who was selling that ring, and the bidding reached $10,000 before the item was pulled.

Young was a backup for the 2002-03 seasons before injuring his knee before his junior season in 2004. He did not play in 2005.

Texas officials declined comment when contacted by the Houston Chronicle. The wholesale price of a title ring is only $350 and there are no NCAA rules prohibiting former players from selling memorabilia.
