Howie Schwab, Fox Sports’ Bracketologist, speaks this week on the other college brackets of note, the College Football Playoffs. You may be surprised at his thoughts on Alabama getting in over Ohio State. Plus, his old ESPN friend Herm Edwards’ new job at ASU, whether Scott Frost can bring back the Tom Osborne era at Nebraska, Ben McAdoo’s firing, the Rams’ surge, Gronk’s suspension, and the SEC of course…but in College Hoops not Football! More, much more…listen, share, comment
So…maybe you missed the actual action on the football field this week. Well, The Schwab caught up with Pro Football Guru Russell Baxter to catch you up on everything that you missed. How good is Eli Manning, really? Can we really tell anything about the season so far? Are the Patriots suspect on defense? What are some stats to look at here? How important is the role of the running back this season?
And in terms of Colin Kaepernick…nothing off the field, just his chances of being signed. What are the football reasons that might be holding him back? Is he only a Starting QB for teams who can adjust around him? Or could he adjust?
This week The Schwab Speaks with current Nationals broadcaster (and former ESPNer) Bob Carpenter on whether this will (finally) be the year for the Nationals. Will Bryce Harper be ready? Will Ryan Zimmerman be a lifetime Nat? Will the bullpen hold up?
And The Schwab has some heated thoughts on the Triple G vs Alvarez fight, the Giants and Eli Manning, the key matches this weekend in College Football, and even the NHL pre-season.
