Not long after Texas A&M's Jimbo Fisher announced the nation's No. 1 recruiting class, the Aggies coach on Wednesday vehemently defended his program against accusations that money fueled its success on the trail leading up to national signing day.
I have been saying this is going to get nasty with members of the same conference turning on one another. I see this eventually leading to breakups of these mega conferences. They are too darn big. Didn't one of the West coast conferences try 16 teams a few years back and it failed miserably?
Well, let's hook up the electrodes and start the questioning to see what Jimbo really knows. Wait, nevermind, nothing will happen. You would think if a HC says he has the dirt, someone in authority would want to know the dirt. Its not going to happen by the NCAA, it is just a shell and doesn't care anything about rules anymore.
Looks like the ahole Jimbo has thrown down the gauntlet. I suspect the howling about Jimbo by the old cheaters (now legal) will go silent. The one's keeping the pressure on will be those who never cheated.
What’s incredibly sad and maddening is Fisher is out and out saying other coaches are blatantly cheating and the yellow belly cowards at the NCAA won’t even get up from behind their desks to ask questions. The TV networks won’t press the NCAA either because they’re in bed.
Then we can finally do away with the charade that any of this is even remotely about academics and “building men” and “culture” and all the other meaningless buzzwords that are nothing more than part of a carefully crafted PR and branding strategy.
There is no squeaky clean program. Everyone knows this, whether they admit it or not.
It will be interesting to see how many of this recruiting class is still at A&M in 2 years. I suspect many will show up, collect a check and leave. I can’t imagine that they have any emotional connection to the school or staff.
Jimbo just reinforcing what many already think of him ... he's a fat baby brat who can't hold his water when those big bad men say things he doesn't like. Boo hoo baby Jimbo. Money (from aTm boosters) still can't buy him the respect from his peers, so he lashes out.
If this weenie had any self control, he'd just laugh off the comments and barbs from the other SEC coaches and contemplate with satisfaction his upcoming 8 - 4 season.
And the SEC scheduling has been kind to Jimbo (U of S.Carolina is their permanent opponent from SEC East). The U of S.Carolina game, along with the usual 3 cup-cakes, he's got 4 guaranteed wins each year. Cough up another 4 from Miss.State, LSU (which will zukk next year), Auburn (another easy win next year), and he's at 7 wins.
Can he coach up his parade of 5* players to win one game that they might have to actually earn? Maybe even Jimbo can pull that off ... which gets him to 8 wins.
The guys who have it easy should have enough maturity to smile at their good fortune and smile at the other jealous coaches. But Jimbo ain't one of those guys.
