On Friday, the world officially found out that Jimbo Fisher is leaving Florida State University and heading over to Texas A&M to coach the Aggies. Though reports had been swirling for days, nothing had been officially announced until Friday.
However, if you lived in Tallahassee, you might have been able to figure it out for yourself. Wayne McGahee, a reporter for the Tallahassee Democrat, snapped a picture of the curb while he was outside of Jimbo’s house, shortly before the announcement was made.

It’s just a Christmas tree on a curb, but it has so much meaning! Fisher is presumably packing up his home to head to Texas as soon as possible, and his Christmas tree was a casualty. At that point, why even release an official statement saying that Fisher is leaving? That tweet is all anyone needs. There’s also so much symbolism in there, too. No Christmas for you, FSU! Christmas is canceled!
On Twitter, this tweet made a normal Friday afternoon feel like actual Christmas. Everyone had a good time with it.
Jimbo: The tree is in the deal, right?
TAMU: Yep. It's here.
Jimbo: You sure?
TAMU: I'm looking at it now.
Jimbo: …. https://t.co/mYazNARUQP

People are stalking Jimbo's Christmas tree, Vol fans and Phil Fulmer aren't allowing hires, Arkansas conducting coach search without an AD, Ole Miss on probation, LSU hired a coach because of an accent. You got to love Southern football https://t.co/QUhjT6JQCj
Then Jimbo thought of something he hadn't before!
"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from Texas A&M."
“Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!"
And what happened then? Well…in Tallahassee they say,
That when Jimbo's small heart Grew three sizes that day! https://t.co/HFdbdJ04bn

Okay, the world definitely needs an animated Jimbo Fisher Grinch Christmas tree special. Someone has to get on that.
Tree probably asked him where the loyalty is. https://t.co/GniY448glT

Somewhere, right now, there's an Aggie preparing a Christmas tree for Jimbo Fisher.

To be fair, if someone is trashing their Christmas tree three weeks before Christmas, it’s a pretty good sign that person is leaving.
What kind of tree is it? Alive or fake? if fake, how old is it? How long had it been committed to Jimbo's family before being recruited over? So many unanswered questions https://t.co/jdGVRHmAVh

Thank you, Jimbo Fisher, for the gift of your curbside Christmas tree. It’s exactly what we all needed.
