Why do Georgia fans believe Tech's Orange Bowl rings are for beating them?

That's a strong take from former Georgia quarterback David Greene, reflecting more UGA furor over the rings Tech's football team had made to celebrate the 2014 season. While the rings do reflect all of the team's major accomplishments from this past season - and there are many - it evidently bears repeating that these are Orange Bowl championship rings. Heck, it says so right on the top. In fact, neither UGA nor this year's edition of Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate are directly referenced on the rings. Sure, one of the faces says "STATE CHAMPS", but it'd have been pretty hard to make that claim had Tech lost to Georgia Southern early in the year.

But maybe Georgia fans are on to something. Perhaps they're seeing something none of the rest of us can see. Something just below the surface.

Let's take another look at those rings.

Now isolate the top....

Enhance.....

ENHANCE.....

Now zoom all the way back out, and squint just a little bit, and.....

.....oh my god.
