Rings.

Kenny Klein, U of L sports information director, says the team got its championship rings today, and pictures are starting to fill up the Twittersphere.

Klein Tweeted out photos this morning. The championship rings have a color Cardinal head inlaid in a panel of stones on the front, with the national championship logo on the left side below the word "Louisville." The team's 35-5 record is at the bottom of the panel.

On the right-hand panel the player's name, along with the Big East logo and the year.

The Cardinals will meet President Obama on Tuesday at 2 p.m. They'll then go to the Capitol to tour the building as the guests of Senator Mitch McConnell.
