Apparently the new hot trend in college football is to award national titles to schools and people who don’t have them.
John Sharp, the Texas A&M University chancellor, gave Jimbo Fisher a national championship plaque without a date on it Feb. 16, according to AggieSports.com.
No pressure at all there coach…
This may be one of the most unsubtle attempts to send a subtle message to a head football coach. Fisher, of course, already has a real one from 2013 when he led Florida State to a national title when it was still the BCS Championship.
Who knows? Maybe Fisher hangs it in his office for motivation, or perhaps he just throws it in his attic because he already has the real thing.
Then again, it’s probably for the best that the expectations are crystal clear from the beginning. Fisher probably also knew that a title was expected when he signed a massive 10-year, $75 million deal to come to College Station.
At least the Aggies aren’t following the University of Central Florida’s lead and just claiming titles from other SEC teams.
Regardless, it’s still an odd way to try and get the point accross. Here’s to Texas A&M, national champions in 20–.
