Texas A&M Football HC Caught In the Middle Of Scoop and Score
Early in the fourth quarter of the game between Texas A&M football and Auburn, the Aggies were cruising and in control. That until a carry by Rueben Owens turned into a scoop and score for the Auburn defense. Eugene Asante grabbed the ball and made the play, streaking down the sideline for 68 yards—and there wasn’t much doubt that he would be housing it even after the very first few yards. What we did see, however, was an unlikely presence on the field upon replay.
It looks like Aggie HC Jimbo Fisher had come out onto the field at a spot that he thought was behind the play—and to be fair, Owens did seem as though his forward progress had been stopped—and found himself right in the middle of things as Asante began to streak down the sideline.
If you’re in that position… hear me out. If you’re in that position, maybe just a nudge? A slight shove? I get that Jimbo’s getting up there, and he’s not the biggest guy. Asante was coming at him fast, I get it. But what’s the worst they do? Flag you for 15 yards? Come on. Better than a touchdown!
This is obviously not a serious suggestion. But that would’ve been pretty funny if that had happened. If you’re out there anyway, why not just a bit of gamesmanship in that situation?
This is all a joke. Jimbo should not have tackled him.
But it’s a funny visual, you have to admit that much.
