There's shooting yourself in the foot and then there's spraining your foot to shoot your team's chances in the foot. Ginn did the latter in the 2007 BCS National Championship Game. The most explosive player on the field returned the game's opening kick for a touchdown to give underdog Ohio State a huge boost, but after injuring himself (with the help of some teammates) celebrating, he spent the rest of the contest on the sidelines. The Buckeyes sputtered to just one more touchdown the rest of the contest in a 41-14 loss to the Florida Gators.
