"I tell you, honestly, how I handled all that was I just blocked everything out. I said what I'm going to do is be very passionate about my job, be very thankful for the job that I have and then whatever happens at the end of the day, we're going to make it right and we're going to make it work. Sometimes you operate on faith that the right thing is going to happen and the right thing happened, not only for Baylor; if there was a soap box down here I might get up on it, but I try not be that guy, but I will be right now because I'm proud.
"Being a Texas high school native, my dad was a high school coach, playing high school football in Texas, playing college football in Texas, coaching in Texas all my life -- and I don't ever plan on crossing the state lines coaching anywhere else -- I was proud that the people in control, the four or five people in control -- because there wasn't a bunch, and that's what everybody's got to understand; we all had thoughts and scenarios, but it didn't matter, there were four or five people that made this decision -- and I was proud that they did the right thing for the people in the state of Texas and the southwest part of the United States because we know how to play football down here. We've been doing it a long time and we've been doing it right a long time and we don't need to jump a fence and go show somebody else that this is how we play football in Texas. We'll open our gates and if people want to come here and show us how they play, that's fine. But, we don't need to be running off and running away because we got a good thing going and I'm proud those people saw that."
