Amateur meat purchase analyst and A1 drool-inducer Clay Travis found this juicy medallion yesterday:
So Jimbo Fisher just paid $80k for a baby calf per a tipster. Please add this to your SEC coaching drama list as evidence of why Jimbo would never leave Texas A&M. (FYI, I’m told this is an expensive piece of livestock for those of you, like me, who have no idea what these cost). pic.twitter.com/4ZmNpmMiEk— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) May 6, 2019
That was like ringing the virtual dinner bell for hordes of slavering, malnourished contentvores nationwide.

Holy cow: Why Texas A&M's Jimbo Fisher spent $80K to add a promising piece of cattle to his herd #GigEm | @Ben_Babyhttps://t.co/03S7KPx1gB— SportsDayDFW (@SportsDayDFW) May 7, 2019

Jimbo Fisher's gone native - he spent $80k on a sale-topping 4 month old Black Angus heifer from former Astros exec/A&M donor Bob McClaren's herd. The herd is also the signature sponsor of A&M's Beef Cattle Academy, & McClaren is the founder of McClaren Sports (h/t Clay Travis) pic.twitter.com/FIi3wAtOf1— RedditCFB (@RedditCFB) May 6, 2019
This tasty extravagance is right in line with the Texas New Money aura that emanates from New Kyle Field. Texas A&M will no doubt milk this cash cow by offering you the honor of dropping $500 on a raffle for a single burger (thunderous buns completely optional) made from this unwitting heifer, so hoof it over to your local Coaches’ Night! It’s a lot more affordable than spending a year’s salary on your own livestock sight-unseen. Gig ‘Em and pass the ketchup!
