Twitter reacts to Jimbo Fisher’s comments on who will call plays for the Aggies
Apologies if it took a few days to digest, but that’s the reality when dealing with a Texas A&M football “crisis” beginning to unfold. If Jimbo Fisher’s recent comments are to be taken verbatim, are we in the midst of tension brewing over in College Station?
Let’s quickly unpack the situation.
The Aggies’ head coach sent some shockwaves through the Twittersphere after speaking to the media about who would call plays for the 2023 season. Naturally, after hiring Bobby Petrino as offensive coordinator, it would make sense for him to be the one calling plays, right?
Well, it resulted in another classic Jimbo press conference answer, as he took a relatively straightforward question and handed back an equally ambiguous answer to the media:
“We’ll go through that as we go. I plan on him making calls. I plan on him calling plays. I don’t have a problem with that at all.”
Aggies players probably know what to make of Jimbo’s words, and A&M fans are likely equipped to comprehend what he means. But when it comes to the Twitter landscape? It’s safe to say they had a field day.
Take a look a some of the social media reactions to Jimbo’s comments on who will call plays for Texas A&M this season:
Jimbo the observer while Petrino is the vocal leader?
Worth noting Jimbo Fisher mostly observed quarterback drills during first spring practice while Bobby Petrino ran the drill. Had been way more vocal during this time period in years past, but too small of a sample size to take much from it. https://t.co/fB92at9DPP pic.twitter.com/6YqHNKtK2K

Petrino in Conner Weigman's ear while Jimbo was hands off. Actions speak louder than words?
Notice who's in Conner Weigman's ear. It's not Jimbo Fisher, it's Bobby Petrino. Today, at least, Jimbo was hands off. pic.twitter.com/X2pBkc2If5

Let's make it clear, Aggies fans do not condone this behavior!
I will commit a federal crime if Jimbo Fisher is still calling plays for the Texas A&M Aggies in 2023 https://t.co/e27D7gNpO2

Death, taxes, and Jimbo not being good in pressers:

If you're fluent in Jimbo's language, then you know there's nothing to read here:
This is literally just a Jimbo Fisher answer. I wouldn't read into that much, bud.

Case in point, there's more to being a head coach then just calling out plays:
The question is will Jimbo Fisher grow into becoming a real head coach, managing all aspects of the whole game and get his head up and outta that massive overly complicated offensive play calling notebook…. Leadership to execute is the GAP

Just another day at the office when it comes to Jimbo press conferences:
If you think this is a telling response, I’d wager you haven’t watched many Jimbo Fisher press conferences. Jimbo is constantly defensive/cagey in his responses to even the most innocuous of topics. https://t.co/VfKnNmIYO6

If Jimbo is fed up already, it's going to be a long spring and fall season ahead:
I didn’t love Jimbo’s response to if Bobby Petrino is gonna call all the plays but maybe he’s just tired of being asked about that. I hope that’s all it is 😬
