Tuesday on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Jonas Knox and Brady Quinn react to Jimbo Fisher getting into a heated exchange with KSAT-TV's Greg Simmons over the weekend. In the interview, Coach Fisher calls out the media's reporting and research into Texas A&M's recruiting class and how many have NIL deals, but Jonas and Brady believe his defensiveness and sensitivity are signs of a larger issue.

Jonas Knox: "Dude, when you're that all over the place and you're that sensitive, it's for a reason. And I don't know if it's because maybe he's heard some criticism about his ability to recruit prior, but it's not like he broke any rules here... When everyone was talking, 'Oh, this is a bad look for Nick Saban.' I think this is a worse look for Jimbo Fisher. This is now the third time he's had an outburst like that... He's sensitive for a reason, because he knows it's a bad look and because he knows if you do a little bit of digging, maybe we're going to find out some secrets about how this whole thing went down."
Brady Quinn: "If you're doing everything above board, if you have all your ducks in a row, than you should be able to talk about it freely, to talk about whatever you want about a collective or what's happening and all that, even though there has to be independent operations of it. He's just getting emotional because he realizes this is gonna be that point where he's put himself on an island. Jimbo Fisher has put himself on an island, not only in the SEC but in college football and unfortunately I don't think history is gonna be kind to him."
