Jimbo Fisher jokes he pulled his hamstring outrunning Gatorade bath after Orange Bowl win
Jimbo Fisher was able to outrun the celebratory Gatorade bath after Texas A&M’s win over North Carolina in the Orange Bowl, but it might have come at a cost.
During the trophy presentation, Fisher joked that he pulled his hamstring outrunning the Aggies players carrying the Gatorade cooler. The Gatorade landed on the field instead of Fisher, as you can see in the clip below shared by the SEC Network.

Fisher isn’t the only SEC head coach who showed off some speed avoiding the Gatorade bath. Kirby Smart similarly turned on the jets when players chased him with the cooler after UGA’s exciting win over Cincinnati in the Peach Bowl.
Perhaps it’s a skill the two picked up from their days working for Nick Saban.
