The BON All Disappointing Team

As the season heads for the sprint to the finish, it's time to unveil the Burnt Orange Nation All Disappointing Team.

Head Coach: Phil Fullmer, Tennessee
--Has done less with more in a record-setting kind of way. The only thing more depressing than being a Tennessee fan this year is being an Aggie fan this year. Except that we knew Coach Fran sucked already.

Quarterback: Reggie McNeal, Texas A&M
--Prior to the season, he was being hyped as a Heisman contender. 124 incompletions later, and he's our bust of the year at quarterback. McNeal is completing only 53% of his passes, which would be about what you'd expect from a true freshman, not a senior.

Running Back: Adrian Peterson, Oklahoma
--Sure, we're piling on our rivals a bit here, but let's face it, it's been a disappointing year for Peterson. The ankle injury has plagued him all year and kept him from building on his remarkable freshman season. Unfortunately for Texas fans, he'll undoubtedly be back with a vengeance next year. Count on it.

Wide Receiver: Ted Ginn, Jr., Ohio State
--Also hyped in the preseason as a dark horse Heisman contender, Ginn, Jr. has been all juice, no gin. 34 catches, 547 yards, and 3 TDs? 10 rushes for 27 yards? You can't even blame Troy Smith. The dude is ranked 6th in the country in passing efficiency.

Kicker: Whoever is kicking for Texas, Texas
--Seven missed extra points? Are you serious? A school this big should never have this poor a performance from the kicker. Hey, anyone know where that Mason Crosby kid is from anyway?

Defense (unit): UCLA Bruins
--Because an offense with that much talent shouldn't be screwed by such a horrible defense. Honorable mention to Michigan State.
