Then I was at Texas and after I left, Muschamp came there.’ He went on and on. He said ‘Muschamp just follows in my footsteps’ and it was hilarious the way he said it."

"Nine games would be more attractive for TV. You'll lose a home game every other year, but you'd probably make it up (financially) to some degree in the TV package.
"If you took a vote of coaches, you'd probably get a two-game conference schedule. Ever notice that everything is more controversial when you first put it in? Years down the road it's not as controversial."
