Jimbo Fisher is the worst. No, seriously, he may be the worst coach in college football this year. The former national champion has led Texas A&M to the bottom of the SEC. After a 13-10 loss to Auburn, a team that hadn’t won a game since the month of September, the Aggies are now a remarkable 3-7, after starting the year ranked sixth.
I'd say 2022 Texas A&M is in position to finish as the most overrated team since 2000 Alabama, 1984 Pitt, 1976 Arizona State, 1967 Michigan State, 1964 Ole Miss, or 1956 Notre Dame
Nobody's out-overrated-ing 1954 Illinois, which started #6 and finished 1-8

Texas A&M just became the first ever program to follow a #1 recruiting class with a losing season

It’s a complete disaster, and it has been all year. On and off the field, they’ve been embarrassing a university that doesn’t need any help embarrassing itself.
Well, Jimbo Fisher found another way, as he sat a star player for the most ridiculous reason you have ever heard. It is truly beyond belief, even for the Aggies.
Jimbo Fisher suspended star wideout Moose Muhammad III for wearing an armband he has worn multiple times this year
Star receiver Moose Muhammad III was mysteriously missing from their game against Auburn. But, the son of former NFL great Mushin Muhammad tweeted this, before deleting it.
Then, later on in the night, he tweeted this.
I want to clear the air. I was benched for wearing arm sleeves—something that my teammates and opponents wear frequently for protection. I apologize to my teammates and fans and looking forward to getting back on the field.
Much Love!#GigEm #AggieFootball

In case that gets deleted, for reference.
Oh, maybe Jimbo Fisher has a rule against arm sleeves? Of course, you can’t let a player disrespect team rules.
Well, here’s the problem. These are some pictures of him wearing arm sleeves in other games this year.
Here he is against Alabama.
And here’s last week against Florida.
And, this one is against Mississippi State from early October.
Muhammad is 2nd on the team in and yards, as he has 30 grabs for 441 yards, good numbers in a dreadful passing offense. He’s been playing his best football as of late, too. It’s just so puzzling by Jimbo Fisher.
Aggie fans react
Texas A&M fans are about ready to exile Jimbo Fisher to a small pacific island right now, and they’re ticked off that this happened.
Moose Muhammad was benched for wearing arm sleeves. Jimb has to be tanking for the buyout, there’s no way someone does this bad on accident

This is why Jimbo is 3-7, but hey in jimbo we trust… I guess

The fact that we didn’t have one of our best players because of a nitpicky thing Jimbo has about specialty positions not being allowed to wear sleeves should be enough to fire him this weekend. That’s the stupidest rule I’ve ever heard. You and the team deserve better, Moose.

Apparently, Fisher has a rule against skill guys wearing them. But, he’s been wearing them all year. And, in the era of the transfer portal, making new rules when you’re the laughingstock of college football to run off star players is some real galaxy brain stuff by Jimbo.
I’m sure we will hear more about this shortly.
