Texas A&M Head coach Jimbo Fisher Reacts To Missing The Playoff.....

After making his pitch to the College Football Playoff committee after Saturday's win against Tennessee, Texas A&M remained at #5 and missed the cut. Here was head coach Jimbo Fisher's reaction to not making the playoff....
quote:

“Well, we were disappointed that we weren’t in the top four but we understand this is all subjective and it’s your opinion on things and they had a process they went through,” Fisher told ESPN’s Kris Budden. “It is what it is and we’re getting ready to play a great Orange Bowl game and hopefully a very good team in North Carolina.”

Fisher expanded his response when asked about how his players reacted to the news.

“They’re disappointed,” Fisher said. “I mean, listen, you play your whole career, your whole life to have an opportunity like that. And we came up just a hair short but that just shows you we’ve got to do a little more work and get ready for the future. We’re branding this program in a very good way, we’re building this program in a very good way, the culture is becoming very good, we just gotta keep going forward.”
Texas A&M is scheduled to take on North Carolina in the 2020 Orange Bowl.

It looked to me that they broke Covid 19 protocol, big time for home attendance at the Florida game. They may have been fined for that poor judgement to the tune of $100,000. Jimbo had a shady past at Florida State. This type of crappy behavior should not be rewarded and wasn't.

Hey a-hole Fisher Coastal Carolina went 11-0, beat 10-1 ranked Utah ans 9-1 ranked ULL who happened to beat the Big 12 runner up. Your arse should have been ranked behind both Cincy and Coastal Carolina. The arrogance of some of these P-5 coaches in this shitty year for the conference as a whole is unbelievable. You had 1 win against a shitty UF team. The garbage that was LSU beat that same shitty UF team. Let me remind you. That LSU team lost to MSU and Mizzou.

I love how Coastal Carolina's victory against 8–3/#10 Iowa State is "Big 12 runner up," but A&M's win against 8–3/#7 Florida isn't "SEC runner up," it's "shitty UF team." Florida is "the team that lost to LSU," but ISU isn't "the team that lost to a G5." Also, Coastal Carolina beat BYU, not Utah.

They got ripped off badly. It semms the playoff committee must have a tv ranking projection somewhere in view while they meet. :(

I am not an A and M fan. But, they played all the games. They went through an entire season. Ohio State should have been told to F off.

But they didn’t play all the games, they did play 90% though...

Orgeron said when he became LSU HC permanently. If you want to win championships you have to beat Alabama...

I actually thing the TV rating would decline significantly if A&M would've gotten in. They just aren't a national brand yet

They never will be a national brand. Lol.

the committee didn’t want an Alabama-A&M rematch in the semis, so they took ND. But ND will get crushed, as always when they play real competition.

Notre Dame, once again, does not belong here. The Aggies have the top defense ion the SEC. They are clearly a top 4 team. Still, however, bla ha ha.

Top 4 selected are not the top 4 team. OSU, ND should not be in the picture. OSU had the rules changed to get into the conf. champ. game and ND played no one....... Bring back the computers, people are blind to the real world

"Bring back the computers, people are blind to the real world".... good lord, don't you realize that the computers aren't all-knowing, they spit out whatever formula they're programmed with -- and that formula is determined by HUMANS. And that formula changes every year - sometimes margin of victory is included, sometimes not. Do you also bitch about the March Madness selection committee? I'd guess you don't, but why not?

I don't know that I'd say that ND didn't play anyone. It took them 2OT to squeak past Clemson without their star QB. We all know what happened when they faced Clemson full strength. They got in because of the ratings bump that would come from their appearance. ND can't stand up to top-tier SEC/Clemson teams. End of story.
