Clint's father Butch played at Vanderbilt from 1972 until 1976, scoring 1,345 points. During Butch's sophomore year at Vandy the 'Dores finished 23-5 (15-3 SEC) and tied Alabama for the SEC championship. That team was known to Vandy fans as the 'F' troop because of it's late game heroics and comebacks.

The 'F' troop was the title of a popular sitcom television show of the day that featured a calvary unit known as the 'F' Troop that would save the day against indians. Several players on the Vanderiblt team had last names beginning with 'F' including Butch Feher. Thus was born the 'F' troop. Butch averaged 20.5 points a game during his junior year.
