My favorite part: "we gathered in Coach Johnson’s living room and eagerly awaited putting our NCAA 2009 championship rings on our fingers.

Paul (Hickman) then kindly informed us that the rings we had just received were the biggest championship rings made for a collegiate team (by that ring company). We definitely took the phrase “go big or go home” to the next level."
