Wednesday on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Brady Quinn tells Jonas Knox and LaVar Arrington why he absolutely hates his alma mater Notre Dame scheduling Tennessee State to open the season.

Brady Quinn: "You can't schedule this and go, 'Well, it's historic for this reason.' I get all that. I don't care about that. This isn't about equity and all that stuff or trying to say hey, we're helping out an HBCU school. It's not about that. It's about trying to win a National Championship...
This a no win scenario for Notre Dame, no matter what way you go about it. It does not help elevate their program. You're not winning a recruit for this. You're not winning in the eyes of the College Football Playoff Committee, or the AP, or whatever else want to talk about recruiting...
It's just a dramatic departure from what it used to be and it it crushes me to see it. Notre Dame in this instance, when it's always kind of been something of its own, is now really trying to almost blend in with everyone else. And that hasn't been their MO."
