Jimbo Fisher pleased to avoid Alabama letdown, CoMo 'demons' in Texas A&M win at Mizzou
Jimbo Fisher was concerned about a potential post-Alabama letdown for Texas A&M on Saturday, but the Aggies took care of business at Mizzou, winning 35-14.
“There were always those concerns. Heck yeah,” Fisher said in his postgame press conference. “You’re always concerned even after you’ve preached it, preached it, yelled it, preached it.”
Fisher leaves Columbia, Missouri proud of Texas A&M’s victory, making it 2 wins in a row.
“Proud of our guys,” Fisher told members of the media. “Come on the road and get a win, this is always a tough place to play. I wasn’t aware, but I guess there were some demons in A&M’s history here. I like to not pay attention to that stuff.”
Here are some of the other highlights from Fisher’s presser:
- On QB Zach Calzada: “He still played really well. In the big drives of the game… Is there still more he can do? Absolutely. He’s still making plays, but he played a solid game. There is still more that he can do.”
- On the offensive line: “I thought they played really well for the most part. There are a couple of things we need to make an adjustment with.”
- On running backs Isaiah Spiller and Devon Achane: “They did a good job. They ran the ball well. There is still more out there that they can get.”
- Kenyon Green is “OK.”
- On moving away from the run in the middle of the game: “They (Tigers) started bringing guys in the box.”
- On not putting away the game: “I was disappointed because I thought we could’ve knocked them (Tigers) out right before half and had an opportunity to.”
