Despite the unhappy ending, Clay remains loyal to the university.
“As a graduate, I always keep an eye out there,” he said. "It’s really neat to see what Coach (Tom) Herman and Coach (Art) Briles did there. Look at what they’ve done with the facilities. It’s changed so much since when my dad was the head coach. It’s good to see them trying to regain that history they had with football and basketball.
“They’re definitely worthy of being in a Power Five conference. I look at that win over the University of Oklahoma last year and what Coach Herman did while he was there. They could have played with anybody in the country. So do they deserve a strong look? I think so.”
