Nick Saban offended Jimbo Fisher when he said Texas A&M bought every single one of its players last year on an NIL deal.
Fisher returned serve with a fiery press conference calling out Saban’s hypocritical stance, among other things.
Social media reaction poured in to the feud between SEC heavyweight coaches and former friends.
Man I’m glad I went to Oregon 😂

“I kept saying “this can’t really be happening, Is this real life?’–Lane Kiffin. It’s been a surreal 24 hours as the coaching world watched on in amazement as Nick Saban and Jimbo Fisher slung mud at each other, throwing out some nasty allegations: https://t.co/1mwinllkUx

This will eventually die down, but…..
The thing I’ll never forget is that Jimbo Fisher, while sitting in front of the official Texas A&M logo, said on the record in a hastily-called press conference for the world to hear that someone should slap Nick Saban.

Jimbo Fisher taking a blow torch to Nick Saban. I’ve never seen anything like this in college football. Not in public, anyway. This is deeply personal: pic.twitter.com/JDbPQQhAB3
