    Zero Positive NBA Tests, The NFL & COVID-19 & College Football Changes

    Today's episode of Helmets Off with Scott Mitchell is all about what sports leagues will look like during the time of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

    First - The NBA. 

    In the Orlando Bubble, the league had zero positive coronavirus tests and starts games this week. They are a true model for what a comeback should look like.

    Next - The NFL

    No one really knows for sure how the NFL season will look other than certain teams playing with zero fans and others requiring social distancing and face coverings. 

    Finally - College Football

    Maybe the league with the most at stake. Some conferences announced they will play conference-only schedules and delay the start, while others are in wait and see mode.

    Scott gives his thoughts on what sports may look like this season and what changes may carry over and become "normal".

    Washington NFL Team Name Change & The Silver Lining Of Conference Only Schedules

    Washington NFL Team Name Change & The Silver Lining Of Conference Only Schedules

    The Washington NFL announced they would be changing their name due to it being a racial slur. Scott offers his thoughts. 

    The Big Ten and the Pac-12 announced they would only be playing conference football schedules in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Other conferences may follow suit if there is even a season at all. 

    The switch to the conference only schedules really hurts independent teams like BYU who lost 5 games in two days from their 2020 slate. 

    Scott offers his perspective on what the 2020 college football season may look like and provides some silver lining about things that may change for the better in college football.
