Paul Finebaum Applauds Jimbo Fisher For Making Texas A&M Football 'Relevant Again'
Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports
Paul Finebaum is all about giving credit where credit is due when it comes to Texas A&M being a part of the college football conversation again. And he says that credit goes to Jimbo Fisher...

“(Texas A&M) is insanely happy,” Finebaum said in an appearance on WJOX in Birmingham, per 247Sports. “It’s funny because a year ago, we were having those awkward conversations about what does Jimbo Fisher have to do? And he did it. He put as close to a masterpiece on the canvas as you could, as close to a masterpiece (season) as you can with a 28-point loss (to Alabama)…. Jimbo Fisher by finishing in the top four in the country, by nearly making the playoff has crossed over that biggest obstacle that he has to do.

“He’s not like Kirby Smart where Nick Saban is always lurking around. That’s not what A&M fans focus on. They just want to be relevant again, and they are relevant again.”

No it won’t. He’s got all the money in the world at A&M. He won’t have an excuse this time.

One good season with a senior QB when the league was way down, doesn't make them relevant. It's a good start, but his career record through his first 3 years is 26-10, 17-8 in conference. Sumlin's record through first 3 years was 28-11, 13-11. This is hardly a major improvement than where they were. Remember his record went south at Florida state against far lesser competition.

Jimbo left FSU when it was apparent he wasn’t going to beat Clemson in the foreseeable future.
