Who is viewing The Scoop? This morning we asked one of our interns to look at the analytics from yesterday on The Scoop. Yesterday, we had viewers from all 32 NFL offices, over 650 college teams and when we asked him how many high schools his eyes crossed, he said, "I stopped counting at 4,000." Good work young man.
