The Most Disappointing Team in College Football
Naming the most disappointing team in college football isn’t just about the prestige of the program. It isn’t even about last season’s team. Florida may not be as good this year as they have been, but pretty much everybody expected that. They lost a ton of talent to the NFL, including Tim Tebow. No, it is the teams that still have the talent but don’t succeed to the degree that was expected of them that disappoint. So, what is the most disappointing team in college football?
Early on, after their loss to James Madison, it looked like Virginia Tech. However, they now look like they will win the ACC, which Sportsbook agrees with, so they aren’t a good pick. People are perennially disappointed with Notre Dame, but they have had injury issues this season that have attributed to their less than stellar season. Brian Kelly needs time.
There are several teams that were ranked in the pre-season that no longer are, but some of those rankings aren’t a fair barometer for what to expect from a team. For example, Texas was ranked fifth because of last season, but they lost Colt McCoy.
In the end, it is a battle between two teams from Georgia. That would be the Bulldogs of Georgia and the Yellow Jackets of Georgia Tech. Considering the Bulldogs lost their best player due to suspension for four games, that certainly is a mitigating factor. Meanwhile, Georgia Tech won the ACC last season and may not make a bowl this year. For that reason, they are the most disappointing team in college football.
