With a chance to pull of the upset against Alabama for the second straight year, Texas A&M head coach and offensive play-caller Jimbo Fisher called a play that he has been catching a lot of heat for. After driving down the field and having the ball on the two-yard line with three seconds left, the 9.5 million dollar a year coach didn’t even give his team a chance.
Here is the final play that has not only Johnny Manziel, but others around the college football world questioning the thought process of Fisher:
Texas A&M’s quarterback Haynes King fared about as well as you would expect against Alabama’s solid defense, finishing the day 25-46 for 253 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. One of the frustrations that should be pointed out is that A&M was only able to out up 20 points, while forcing four Alabama turnovers. The Texas A&M offense has been a topic of conversation all year, heating up to the point that has people asking Jimbo if he has thought about handing over his play-calling duties.
Manziel has never been one to bite his tongue, and after seeing his Aggies go down last night, he took to Twitter to speak his mind.
You never want to see former players speak out against their school, but Manziel’s frustrations are understandable. One would think that Fisher has plays in his playbook to give his team a better look at pulling off the upset against the number one team in the country. The final play for the Aggies had no chance from the start, and I would assume that the criticism for Jimbo won’t be dying down anytime soon.
