Helmets Off

Mar 22, 2018

Everything is about March Madness right now.  When Scott sits down and carefully studies the teams, he chooses poorly and his bracket fails.

When he goes with his gut and makes quick picks, he does much better.

So for the 2018 NCAA tournament, he made quick gut picks and went 13 for 16 in the first round.  That's a huge result!  

Then Virginia lost to University of Maryland Baltimore County, UMBC.

A 16 seed beat a 1 seed.

That's the exciting thing about the mens basketball tournament.  Anyone can win any game.  All you need is that one chance.  

But what about the NIT?  Does anyone care about the National Invitation Tournament?

This year, Scott does because his school, University of Utah, is headed to Madison Square Garden to play in the semi finals.  the Utes are the only PAC 12 team left in the post season.

Scott has a strategy as a fan to support his various teams.  He's a big Jazz and Ute fan.  He loves Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickelson.  Here's his strategy to help them do well.  If he watches a game and they start losing, he will turn it off.  He sacrifices his viewing pleasure to help the team.  If he continues to watch, the team will lose.

Sam Darnold is a top NFL prospect.  At his Pro Day he threw in front of every team and all major media outlets.  And one of the commenters said the workout he was doing didn't matter and wasn't a big deal.

That's crazy.  If he does poorly, it will totally change his draft position.

Even thought he environment was controlled, Darnold still had to make the throw. 

Jeff George was the #1 pick in the draft and it was totally because of his Pro Day workout.  That moved him into the first slot.

Scott Mitchell takes his helmet off to show you the inside scoop of all kinds of sports from football to even golf. Scott Mitchell is a former NFL quarterback who was a star quarterback at the University of Utah before going on to have a professional career playing with the Miami Dolphins, the Orlando Thunder, the Detroit Lions, the Baltimore Ravens, and the Cincinnati Bengals. Scott also hosts the podcast Rivals with former NFL player Jason Buck.
