This Coach Really Didn't Want His Gatorade Bath

After Texas A&M defeated North Carolina on Saturday to win the Orange Bowl, players tried to douse coach Jimbo Fisher with Gatorade. As this video clip shows, Fisher sprinted in impressive fashion to avoid his fate, notes a post at SaturdayDownSouth. But the sprint may have been a little too fast for the 55-year-old. He said after the game that he pulled a hamstring, reports USA Today. "I didn’t pull it bad, but I did pull it," Fisher told ESPN's Scott Van Pelt on SportsCenter. The players did manage to catch Fisher at another point, but they didn't get much on him. "That thing is cold," Fisher says in explaining his rationale for the sprint. He added that he hadn't run that fast in 25 years. (A player got an unexpected grooming tip at his post-game press conference.)
