    Last Monday the Florida Gators spanked the Ohio State Buckeyes. I had my new Gator icon and now it's gone. One would think that when you win a national title you would be able to display that title for the year.

    Who's with me?

    Go Gators!!!

    I'm surprised it remained available for so long. Generally, sports icons are taken down soon after their relevant tournaments end.

    Don't know why an exception should be made in this case, it's been the standard in all other instances, that the winning team's icon is only kept for a week after the championship win.

    It's only because the icon admin forgot :p They're only supposed to remain up for 3 days after the championship is decided.

    Seriously, I any team wins a "National Title" it would be cool if that Icon could remain up for the year, until they are no longer the champions.

    Who agrees with me?

    You want to argue, take it to Comms. But this ground has been trodden a few times before.

    We were lucky to get sports icons to begin with, I'm not going to push it when it comes to the length of time that they are allowed to be up.
