[Editor's note, from time to time, we like to dig up the past. At Chant Rant, we've been doing this for 8 years. Here's an article from 2007 about Jimbo Fisher and his playcalling. Awesome read.]
Excerpts from a recent article in the NY Times:
"Razor Deep Y Snake is not a safe play. When Jimbo Fisher was the offensive coordinator at Louisiana State and Jamarcus Russell was his starting quarterback, the Tigers usually ran it on first down, when the stakes were low and they could take a chance downfield.
But on the night of Sept. 10, 2005, with L.S.U. trailing Arizona State by 3 points and only 83 seconds left in the game, Fisher called Razor Deep Y Snake on fourth-and-10 from the opponent’s 39.
It was not the play that made Russell a top N.F.L. prospect.
But it was the play that won the game and made him a Louisiana legend."
You can read the rest of the story for yourself.
It not only proves what a shrewd, daring playcaller Jimbo is. But for FSU fans it begs the question: At what point will Fisher feel confident in calling Razor Deep Y Snake with his new team?
