Nick Saban and Jimbo Fisher’s postgame handshake after the Texas A&M at Alabama game on Oct. 8 is something that every college football fan will look forward to.
Nick Saban and Jimbo Fisher have been going at it ever since Saban claimed that “A&M bought every player on their team” and it is the reason why Texas A&M finished with the best recruiting class. Saban apologized on radio for singling anybody out, but the damage has been done. Jimbo Fisher had already hosted a fiery press conference where he was highly critical of Saban and asserted that he followed all of the current rules regulating college football.
Fisher and Texas A&M had the top-ranked incoming recruiting class. Saban and Alabama finished second in the class of 2022 recruiting rankings.
What about the team with the third-ranked class of 2022? Kirby Smart and the defending national champion Georgia Bulldogs are happy to stay out of the spotlight on this one. Georgia will have a target on its back in 2022 because it won the nation championship, but the Bulldogs don’t need to give any extra motivation to a pair of talented teams like Alabama and Texas A&M.
