The subject of heated controversy, the 1973 University of Michigan football team went undefeated, was crowned Big 10 Conference co-champions, and yet did not make the trip to the Rose Bowl. Among the prizes that were allotted to the Wolverines that year were examples of this 10-karat yellow gold ring. Bestowed upon senior safety Greg Koss, this "Jostens" size 10 accessory features a dark-blue stone with a gold-colored block-style “M.” Surrounding that design, “BIG TEN CHAMPIONS” appears in raised characters. On one shank, “1973” appears in raised numerals, and just below, an engraved portrayal of “The Big House” is accompanied by a football likeness. The opposite shank is home to a Michigan football helmet likeness and scroll designs with engraved notations of “KOSS,” “S” and “10.” This Big 10 gridiron relic weighs 24.3 grams and presents beautifully. Go Blue!
