If they beat Texas, then you have to say what they've accomplished is unparalleled in college football. I was with Coach [Bear] Bryant when he first got things going at Alabama, and we won a bunch of games. But given the competition today, what USC has done is incredible.

He was knowledgeable about the defense, and called the defense. We would fuss every once in a while, and Coach Landry would tell us to behave. It was a good working relationship, and I'll miss him.
