Jim McElwain on FSU football's state title rings: Why wouldn't you?



HOOVER, Ala. - Florida State made some online buzz when the Seminoles gave out state championship rings after beating Florida, Miami and USF last season.

Because anything goes at SEC media days, Gators coach Jim McElwain was asked about FSU's choice Monday, and whether he'd do the same thing if UF accomplished a similar feat.

"I mean, they won it, so why won't you?" McElwain said. "That's a hell of a deal..."

McElwain went on to praise the job coach Jimbo Fisher has done since taking over for legendary Bobby Bowden...then added this comment: "I don't know whether our administration has it in our budget to do that."

McElwain has made some interesting cracks at UF's budget, even though the Gators have made significant facilities upgrades during his tenure.
