Texas A&M Football Coach Jimbo Fisher Defends Aggies Recruitment, Rips 'Complete Lies'

Jimbo Fisher doubled down on his defense of Texas A&M recruiting in an interview with a San Antonio TV station, saying only one of the top 11 registrants in the Aggies’ No. 1 recruiting class had a VOID contract.

Fisher fumed last week when Alabama coach Nick Saban addressed an Alabama business group saying, “A&M bought all the players on their team – made a deal for the name, the image, the likeness. We didn’t buy just one player, okay?”

The Aggies coach responded by calling a press conference Thursday morning and tearing up Saban, saying ‘We’ve never bought anyone’, calling Saban ‘despicable’ and saying ‘Some people think they’re God”.

On Sunday night, KSAT aired an interview with Fisher that it recorded on Friday when the coach drove into town to speak at an alumni club.

“I just researched that,” Fisher said in the interview. “Of the 11 guys we have in place who came in early? One guy has a ZERO contract. So all these stories you hear are complete lies.”

He reiterated that he had already been on the defense since signing day in February when he questioned social media posts claiming the Aggies had a $30 million deal fund. NILE.

“It was written on social media,” Fisher told reporter Greg Simmons. “You have news channels [that] believed in it. And you believed it.”

Fisher then began questioning Simmons.

“I’m asking you,” Fisher said. “Have you done your research? No, so you just assumed. And that’s the way the world is now. As soon as it’s written on social media and someone says it, you believe it. So , where does that put you as journalists?

“Nobody wants the truth. You want a story, a click and a hit.”

Fisher, as he said on Thursday, reiterated that he had not spoken to Saban and had no intention of.

“No, we haven’t spoken,” Fisher said, then was asked if he would accept Saban’s apology. “I said we weren’t talking.”
