Jimbo Fisher lists areas where Texas A&M can improve, how Bo Nix has developed under Chad Morris
Texas A&M was ranked No. 5 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings, which were released on Tuesday night. But that didn’t move the needle for coach Jimbo Fisher.
“I didn’t really have (a reaction), it’s great, super,” he said on the SEC coaches media teleconference on Wednesday. “I’m focused on playing good football… if we keep winning, our goals will take care of themselves.”
Fisher said the Aggies are looking to improve in several areas.
“I think offensively gotta get consistent,” Fisher said. “We got to get done with the ball better got to protect a little better. Got to get our receivers to catch, create separation… We’ve got to correct those mistakes, go back to the basics and fundamentals need to keep doing things we’re doing… It’s just a matter of staying consistent and special teams they’re very sound, get the return game going, eliminate some penalties, we had three more penalties last game, especially when you go on the road.”
This week Texas A&M faces Auburn and QB Bo Nix, who Fisher said has changed in the new offense under Chad Morris.
“Knowledge of the game, very competitive, he can make all the throws,” Fisher said of Nix. “The change in offense has opened things up for him, I think he’s got a tremendous future and he’s playing well now.”
