No way around it - last second TD was classless


Posted: Sep 8, 2019 9:35 PM

Jimbo, the Aggies, the media can TRY to label A&M's last-second trash TD a "way to practice for crucial situations in later games" - but that really wasn't it. It was a typical Jimbo Fisher classless move.

All the trash talking, swagger & guaranteed win claims from the players - that all eminates from the HC - & it's indicative of Jimbo's gutter style of coaching.

The guy was wide open in the endzone--easy score. Can't stand Jimbo, but any team would have done the same.

Dabo would NOT have called 2 timeouts in a game that was already decided. No way.

i think it's more dangerous than classless

I didn’t verify the lineup but Dabo said postgame that the backups were in on that TAMU TD.

least- more subs earlier in the drive. I think Spector was in not sure who else back-up wise. Not sure who had TE responsibility either. It was a blown assignment by someone as 3 or 4 guys blitzed and 1 guy as supposed to stay with the TE. Only the coaches and players would know who that is based on the call.


Nah, I would always want my team to try and score when down

If you recall we attempted to do the exact same thing at the end of the Sugar bowl when we were trailing Bama by a similar 24-6 margin. We got stopped though.

Your foot off the gas. There are a limited number of practice reps. If your team is down they should be trying to score, I don’t care how bad the score is.

What kind of leader of men would you be if you taught your team to give up?

We did the exact same thing to Jimbo in 2013 and I had 2 FSU fans sitting behind me in the stands complaining that Dabo was classless. To me it shows your team you don’t quit unit the clock runs out. Anyway GO TIGERS!!!

You don't give up - ever. If you are down, you keep on fighting.


Now, if you are up and can burn the clock, that is when you can take a knee. See 44-16

Hey I'm disappointed that the 20+ point win margin streak ended too. Classless is a reach. We should've just stopped them and I'm sure CBV would agree too.

Their last drive was all about trying to improve and get ready for the rest of the season. Period.
It was a statement they wanted to send to themselves.

You never played competitive sports did you? It was our job as a defense to stop them and we didn't. Also, was Dabo classless for going for it on 4th & goal down by 17 in the last minute in the sugar bowl?

so Jimbo should of had them do the "defeated" formation?

Go back and watch them running as much clock as possible

... until they got a couple of good plays against the reserves that put them in scoring position.

They were just happy to run the clock out when they were on their own side of mid-field.

Then Jimbo started calling time outs.

Why wasn’t he running “hurry up” and trying to score earlier?

Maybe he scores and gets the onside kick. Could have really made the game look close!!

Here's the way this game works - they try to score, we try to stop them. We try to score, they try to stop us.

Who cares? We won and it was meaningless. I am glad they tried that play. We didnt defend it well and now we have something to work on. Worked ou% fine for the long haul. I see nothing wrong with them trying to score. We had the option to stop them.and we couldn't. Oh well.

I agree. I thought it was tacky. Fisher wasn't even trying to win the game, otherwise he would have onside kicked afterwards. I'm not sure what the point was. I do know that Fisher should be thankful that he won't see Dabo's team again for a while, because Dabo has a long memory for stuff like that.


Onside kick?

Down 14 with 6 seconds left? OK that might have been classless.

So it's ok for us to still have Lawrence in the game and throwing the ball deep while up 21 and less than 6 minutes to go, but it's classless for A&M to try and score on the very next series?

Don’t have a problem with it but was curious why they went so slow at the beginning of the last drive. They were absolutely in no hurry. I thought they would have at least tried to score quickly. I guess Jimbo knew the results were sealed and just wanted to work on the QB.

I didn't like the fact that they scored but not because they tried. I was just hoping for a stop. I think TAM scoring that last TD was great motivation for this week. BV will have extra stuff to work on that will make a positive impact in the weeks to come. I expect the defense to be motivated this week in NY.
I didn't think it was classless at all. Go Tigers!

How was it classless? It was a big play for vegas and gamblers as well. I thought it was cool to watch our D still trying to hold and A&M not giving up even when the game was over. Maybe Jimbo had some friends who had money on the spread lol.
