Jimbo Fisher has received a lot of praise for the way he’s built Texas A&M up and the way the Aggies are so highly talked about in just about the same way as the top powerhouses in college football are.

And there’s plenty he’s done to deserve that positive attention, especially with the way his team was able to pull off an upset victory over Alabama last season. But not everyone seems to believe that Fisher and his team should get the type of attention that they do.

One anonymous coach who was quoted in an Athlon Sports article made that clear.

“Jimbo Fisher might be a mad genius when it comes to media because they get talked about alongside Georgia and Alabama, and they’re every bit an 8–4 program,” the source said. “He knows it, too, but I think that’s part of the plan.”

The Aggies finished out last season with an 8-4 record that they’ll look to expand upon in 2022. One of the biggest things to watch is the quarterback situation with an ongoing battle between Max Johnson and Haynes King that isn’t expected to be decided until the end of fall camp. How well the winner performs this season will have a lot to do with the ceiling of what the offense as a whole can accomplish.
