Fox college football analyst Brady Quinn joins Bob Stoops for this episode of “Conversations with Coach.” Stoops and Quinn previously worked together on Fox’s Big Noon Kickoff college football pregame show, and Stoops will join that cast in Cincinnati on Saturday, Sept. 23, before the 11 a.m. (CDT) game between the Oklahoma Sooners and Cincinnati Bearcats.

Among the episode highlights:

(5:20) Stoops and Quinn preview the Notre Dame-Ohio State game and discuss how Irish head coach Marcus Freeman has changed things in South Bend.

(6:25) Quinn, who once held 36 Notre Dame passing records, offers his opinion on how transfer Sam Hartman, as a six-year quarterback, has boosted Notre Dame’s offense. “This is an offense that last year if you watch them you would have said they could run the football… Now they’re a team that can put up 40 points like they have every single game.”

(10:00) How Quinn compares Notre Dame to physical teams like Michigan.

(11:00) Stoops discusses his memories of playing Notre Dame twice during his days as the Sooners head coach.

(15:00) What Quinn thinks about Notre Dame’s national championship hopes. “They’ve been great in situational football. …They’re constantly put in positions to succeed and they’ve done that thus far.”

(16:00) Stoops solicits Quinn’s take on how name, image, likeness have changed college football. “Until we have federal legislation … there will continue to be an unlevel playing field in recruiting and some states will have a big advantage.” Quinn also proposes changes to the transfer portal.
