Texas A&M is already declaring national titles, as it gave new head coach Jimbo Fisher a national championship plaque without a date on it.
Read that over again. Not only because it is absurd, but due to the fact that it happens to be true. In a real world setting, in the year 2018, the Aggies gave their new head coach a fictitious future national title.
No pressure or anything, Jimbo.
Here is A&M’s chancellor doing the award giving:
Somehow, this is not exactly shocking in the world of college football. Nor is it all that surprising coming from that specific Texas A&M employee.
John Sharp, the aforementioned chancellor, said the following upon the hiring of Fisher about expectations.
“Nothing serious. Just want to win a national championship,” he said.
Texas A&M-Commerce head football coach Colby Carthe was given an actual earned plaque prior to Sharp giving his one to Fisher. The following exchange then took place because why not:
“The only difference between Colby’s and yours is you get to fill in the date,” Sharp told Fisher during the presentation
“I hope I fill in a couple,” Fisher responded with a laugh.
Long live the SEC!
