David Pollack says Jimbo Fisher needs to re-evaluate Texas A&M's offensive identity
During College GameDay’s podcast, David Pollack had a few words about Jim Fisher’s situation at Texas A&M.
Pollack responded to a question about the Aggies offense with a honest and blunt statement:
“Jimbo’s got to do some revaluation on what he wants to be offensively,” he says in the below video:
He followed up with another concern about the future of A&M’s recruiting:
“All that momentum you had in the off season and last year is tanking in the other direction,” he said.
Pollack is referring to the record breaking recruiting class A&M had in 2022. With an incredible 8 5-Star players per 247Sports, Fisher was able to take the No. 1 spot of all-time. The issue with having that tremendous amount of success on the recruiting trail is that people want results immediately. Pollack points out that because of A&M’s lack of offensive production, scoring only 21.8 points per game, it has become that much easier to negatively recruit against Fisher.
“You want to go play in THAT offense? That offense for the last two years?” Pollack said while walking through how other programs are going to approach high school athletes that the Aggies might also be interested in.
The Aggies also had issues with their last Pro Day when several of their players had poor performances. Jane Slater of the NFL Network reported the 40 yard times which drew a lot of attention for all the wrong reasons. Jalen Wydermyer, thought to be a top 2 tight end prospect in the preseason, ran a 5.03. For context, Georgia’s DT Jordan Davis ran a 4.7 at 340 pounds.
Pollack continued to point out that it will continue to be difficult regardless of who the starting Aggie quarterback is because the problem is system based. He held nothing back when address the numerous concerns that have yet to be addressed by Fisher.
