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 on the side.

Watson tweeted on (at)MenelikWatson71: "Apparently I'm the only player in (hash)Fsu history to win an SEC Championship! (hash)Legendary (http://bit.ly/1bpM5ZQ ).

Florida State spokesman Elliott Finebloom said Thursday rings that had not already been distributed have been checked and one more was found to have a similar mistake. He said the rings with inaccurate carvings will be replaced.
