Note: This is satire. We didn't really hop in our DeLorean and travel to January 2024, although that'd be pretty awesome. HOUSTON – A prophecy that began with an undated plaque in 2018 finally came true for Jimbo Fisher's Aggies.Texas A&M toppled mighty Alabama at NRG Stadium to win the 2023 national championship."Daggum, I'm so excited," Fisher said as he claimed his second title — 10 years after his first (at Florida State).Fisher also felt relief after years of built-up pressure from one often-mocked gesture.A&M chancellor John Sharp famously awarded Fisher an undated national championship plaque in February 2018, before Fisher had even coached a game for the Aggies.The payoff finally came tonight, after Fisher's Aggies survived the sport's inaugural eight-team playoff.First Fisher conquered one of the nation's up-and-coming programs (Big 12 champion UCF) and top new coach (former Mets star Tim Tebow). That 35-27 defeat didn't stop the Knights from claiming their seventh consecutive national title.Then Fisher took down college football royalty: Notre Dame. He outwitted the Fighting Irish and spoiled the perfect season of its rising coaching star, Charlie Weis Jr.Then came the biggest test of all: the Crimson Tide.Fisher's Aggies lost to 'Bama in the regular season and needed Mark Richt's Hurricanes to upset his old Seminoles in the ACC title game to earn an at-large spot in the playoff. But Fisher came prepared in Houston, calling a pivotal fake punt late in the second quarter to steal momentum."What a gutsy call," 'Bama coach Lane Kiffin said as he watched the team bus pull away from the stadium.A&M sealed the win with a 35-yard field goal – initially ruled wide right but overturned thanks to the goalpost's laser sensors."Knew they'd come in handy," Fisher said.Just like the undated plaque Fisher received in 2018. At first, it was a college football punchline – like the Civil ConFLiCT or Butch Jones' championship of life.But not now. Not after Fisher finally brought a championship to College Station.No one's laughing now.
