Saturday Musings-March 17, 2018

The New York Jets traded draft spots with the Colts today.  The Jets moved up from #6 to #3 swapping places with the Colts. They also gave the Colts the #37 and #49 picks in this year’s draft plus a second rounder in 2019. The Jets obviously felt they needed to be up in the top 3 to get one of the potential franchise QB’s available this year since they lost out on the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes. The Colts saw it as an opportunity to stockpile draft picks to help build their roster since they are looking Defense in the draft and feel their guy will be available at #6

Tiger Woods shoots a 69 today in the 3rd round of the Arnold Palmer Classic. He sits at -7 for the tournament currently 4 shots off the leaders who are still on the course. He needs a 65 or 66 on Sunday to have a legitimate shot at winning. All in all though his progress has been stellar. He has played his last 7 rounds at par or better as he hones his game for April 5 at the Masters in Augusta,GA

What about UMBC as a #16 seed knocking off the #1 overall seed in Virginia!  First time in the history of the tournament since it expanded to 64 teams in 1985 that a 16 seed has beaten a 1 seed in 136 matchups. This reinforces the idea that this year’s tournament is wide open and regardless of seeding it’s all about how you matchup with your opponent
