Jimbo Fisher, grab the rubber nose. Texas A&M football coach becomes the clown – Tennessean

  • September 14, 2022

Jimbo Fisher talked tough throughout the offseason after Texas A&M signed the nation’s No. 1 recruiting class, and his Aggies gathered their usual offseason hype.
When other SEC coaches raised an eyebrow at Fisher’s recruiting haul amid the first year of NIL, Fisher fired back, calling those coaches “clown acts.” Later, he described Nick Saban as a narcissistic false god
Now, Fisher wears the rubber nose as the SEC’s chief bozo after his Aggies lost 17-14 Saturday at home to Appalachian State.
On this edition of “SEC Football Unfiltered,” a podcast from the USA TODAY Network, hosts Blake Toppmeyer and John Adams discuss the bloom falling off Fisher’s rose.
Through 50 games at A&M, Fisher’s record is worse than that of predecessor Kevin Sumlin.
OPINION: Jimbo Fisher is just a rich man’s Kevin Sumlin at Texas A&M | Toppmeyer
ADAMS: Tennessee addressed its football problem by hiring Josh Heupel. But what about its stadium urinals problem?
TOPPMEYER: These are perilous times to be a ‘quarterback whisperer’ in the SEC
The best A&M quarterback in the Fisher era? Kellen Mond. Signed by Sumlin.
In fact, the one-time “quarterback whisperer” hasn’t produced an elite quarterback since Jameis Winston, almost a decade ago.
Surely a $9 million coach in his fifth season should be expected to develop an offense that can muster more than 186 yards against a Sun Belt opponent.

The Aggies need to make a quarterback change, but that might not solve all their offensive woes. The game looks as if it has passed by Fisher.
