The Florida State Seminoles enjoyed a very successful 2012 season, taking home the ACC crown with a 12-1 record before spanking Northern Illinois in the Orange Bowl. They did not, however, win the SEC title — despite what offensive lineman Menelik Watson‘s championship ring might claim.
Watson, now a member of the Oakland Raiders, received the ring commemorating FSU’s 21-15 win in the ACC title game on Wednesday, and he tweeted out a photo of it after noticing one glaring mistake.
Check it out for yourself below (with a helmet sticker to Dr. Saturday).

BEST OF MAXIM
Imagine former Florida State offensive lineman Menelik Watson’s surprise when he received his championship ring, only to find out his beloved Seminoles somehow won the 2012 SEC Championship, despite being firmly ensconced in the ACC?
Watson tweeted out a picture of his new bling, which clearly shows the ring maker’s egregious mistake…

Well, this is pretty interesting. Just over one week ago we showed you the rings that the Florida State players had received for winning the Orange Bowl against Georgia Tech. They were pretty cool and the players loved them — but none more than Menelik Watson, the offensive tackle for the Seminoles (now with the Oakland Raiders). Watson tweeted out a picture of his championship...
If you thought college football expansion was a dead topic in the offseason, you are right.
But apparently Florida State had a nice run in the Southeastern Conference championship game last season.
Confused? Yes, so was Florida State's right tackle last season, Menelik Watson.
Watson took a photo of his 2012 ACC championship ring, something every player received for the December...
Former Florida State offensive tackle Menelik Watson finally received his ACC Championship Ring from 2012, but there turned out to be a serious misprint on the side. The side of the ring says SEC Champions and to make matters worse, Watson is saying that he is the only one to receive a ring like that. Looks like the ring maker made a serious mistake and something tells me that...
All those Florida State fans who have dreamed about the Seminoles playing in the Southeastern Conference will love this championship ring.
Former Florida State offensive lineman Menelik Watson posted a picture of the championship ring he earned by being a part of last season's Atlantic Coast Conference title winners.
Problem is it has ''SEC Champions'' engraved...
Menelik Watson received his ring for being part of the ACC Champion Florida State Seminoles. Sounds like a great story except Watson’s ring proclaims that FSU was the SEC Champions.

Thanks to former Florida State tackle Menelik Watson, we are finally getting a look at the Seminoles’ 2012 SEC Championship rings. Wait...
Former Florida State Seminoles offensive tackle Menelik Watson received his 2012 SEC Championship ring. Say what?
Menelik Watson was a lineman for Florida State's 2012 Championship team but what confused Watson was what conference the Seminoles won according to his tweet.
"Just got my Championship rings. Apparently I'm the only player in #Fsu history to win an SEC Championship!"
Well Georgia Tech was once in the SEC but left in the early 1960's. Florida State...
