Thursday on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Brady Quinn is live from Big 12 Media Days where the new Commissioner, Brett Yormack makes it clear they're 'open for business' as conferences continue to realign.

Brady Quinn: "I think the one definitive is Brett Yormark continually discussed national, he wants the Big 12 to be national... He really does want to bring in schools with a bigger geographic footprint, because I don't think the Big 10 or the SEC are going to keep expanding like some pundits out there will tell you. I think they'll maybe get to 16, 18 teams tops, but that's it. If you look at the Big 12, I don't think that they would be against going to maybe 20 and expanding this thing to bring in a lot of other brands they feel have value.... The Big 12 is the one that seems like they're open for business and that's not my words, those were his words from his press conference yesterday."
LaVar Arrington: "I think that's really smart because there's a lot of really good football out there that's being played."
Jonas Knox: "Is this really just a race to see who can gain control over the 2nd conference next to the SEC?"
