A Request For Radio “Requesters”

A brief aside to all the folks out there who are kind enough to invite me onto your radio shows each week…

Last year I wound up doing 15-20 radio interviews per week during football and basketball seasons.  At about 12-15 minutes a pop, that took up a lot of time.  So rather than set up regularly-scheduled hits, I’m going to pull back a bit this season.

That said, if you’re interested in having me join you on occasion — and I’m always happy to do so when I’m available — the best way to contact me is via email at  Also, it’s always best that you try to email me at least a couple of days in advance.

It’s first come, first serve, so I might have to accept an invite at a later date, but if you contact me, I’ll do my best to accommodate you at some point.

Many thanks to all the folks across the SEC region and beyond who’ve asked for someone at to join them.  I’ve done hits from West Virginia to North Dakota to New Zealand (yes, really) to talk SEC sports and I look forward to chatting with more of you in the future.

Now, back to the news o’ the day…

MrSEC’s Mitchell Alive And Well

In the midst of all the chaos and loss of life in Christchurch, New Zealand, it seems out of place to talk about “good news.”  But on the front, we received some fantastic news this morning.

Mike Mitchell — co-owner of as well as our weekend update man — has survived yesterday’s massive, deadly earthquake.

Responding to an email of “Are you okay?” Mitchell wrote back after 3am ET:

“Yes — crazy day — we were right in the middle of it.  Running out of battery — but we’re good.  Now about two hours outside of Christchurch.”

That’s quite a relief for those of us who work with Mike — and more importantly — are best friends with Mike.  And there are many out there who think of him in that way.

We were a bit more worried last evening than we’d even let on in our initial post.  What we did not pass along at the time was the fact that I personally had received an email from Mike about three hours before the quake hit saying that he was going into the heart of Christchurch to do some sightseeing.  So when news came of the quake, of bodies strewn across city streets, and of people being trapped in the rubble of the city’s most-popular tourist attractions… I feared the worst.

But thankfully, all is well and our partner here at MrSEC is safe and sound.  Now, if only we can talk our recruiting writer Josh Ward out of making his own trip to New Zealand and Australia later this spring.

Josh, ever thought about Dollywood?  I can’t remember any natural disasters there.

Many thanks to all of you for your thoughts and prayers,
John and the gang at

Post Comments » One Comment’s Mitchell In New Zealand

We here at ask you to keep our partner and friend Mike Mitchell in your prayers today.  Mike flew into Christchurch, New Zealand on Sunday night to visit friends.  With power and communications down, we have not heard from Mike and are not sure how the 6.3 magnitude earthquake has impacted him or his group.

You probably know Mike from the posts and links he puts on MrSEC each weekend.  But he’s also my partner in the company that owns MrSEC.  He’s been a colleague — off and on — for nearly 20 years.  He also happens to be a good friend.

Today, please be thinking of Mike and everyone else affected by the tragedy in New Zealand.

Many thanks,
