Jimbo Fisher Ready to Tackle SEC Challenge at Texas A&M
For the first time in three decades, SEC Media Days went down outside of Birmingham. The annual media extravaganza kicked off at the college football hall of fame in Atlanta. There was also a new face at media days in Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher. He left a successful program at Florida State to head up the home of the 12th man. Fisher discussed his move, and the chance to face his former boss at LSU in Bama coach Nick Saban.
Said Fisher:”And you start looking at the resources and the commitment the school makes. I’m not talking about just athletically and facility wise. I’m talking about it’s just an unbelievable school. The culture of that university is unbelievable. We’re getting a lot of people there from different areas that have never been there. First response they get is wow. I had no idea, which I didn’t have any idea totally. The ACC I think the quality of play has risen because of the SEC. We said that over there. When we were at Florida State in 2013. I think what was it seven in-a-row the SEC had won national championships, and we were able to break that streak and win a national championship. It brought everybody’s level of play up. You either had to. They were going to run over you, or you had to go join them. Like I say, he’s doing it the best of anybody and for a long time. Maybe the best ever. You don’t know. The guy is tremendously successful, and if you are a competitor, you want to go against the best.”
