Coming soon to your screens….The Schwab to Fox as their college hoops bracketologist! But you don’t have to wait…you can hear this week’s views on the Heisman Race (has Barkley blown it?), Justin Verlander skipping the parade for his wedding (he thinks he made the right call), Eli’s future with the Giants and the NFL…and much, much more including this weeks old school matchup of the Convicts vs. the Catholics (Miami-Notre Dame). Who will win? Listen and find out.
It’s been a great World Series and the Schwab has a lot of thoughts on Game 5, the Gurriel suspension (or lack thereof), the hitting, the bullpens and more. A great listen before or after tonight’s game.
But wait there is more! Did Saquon Barkley lose the Heisman? Did JT Barrett win it? Will Notre Dame make it to the Championship Game? Could they have a rematch with Georgia along the way or there? Would Colin Kaepernick fit the Patriots system? How long is the NBA Season anyway? And those Las Vegas Golden Knights are making a statement in the NHL…
The Schwab speaks about men’s soccer and the elimination from qualifying for the World Cup. Is this a blip in the men’s program or a troubling trend? And then for a college football weekend that didn’t have two ranked opponents in one game… there were a lot of upsets. And what’s going to happen this weekend with the Trojans and USC? The Schwab has his thoughts. And that call in the Jets game..was it the difference? Would it have gone the other way? Finally, a look at the Dodgers Astros matchup…no not a look ahead…a look back to the NLDS in 1981.
“It’s like being back in the ESPN newsroom,” says this week’s guest, Mike Tirico. And it is. Mike and The Schwab talk about the college football season so far and whether Alabama and Clemson will go the distance. What is it like to cover the home games of Notre Dame and what Brian Kelly is doing differently this season. The NFL and why month one matters…and doesn’t matter. Colin Kaepernick on the field and not off…what Mike’s experiences covering him on MNF were like and which systems he might fit. The Winter Olympics and the North Korean figure skating team that might become one of the bigger stories.
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?
The Schwab Speaks about the start of the NFL season (hear his picks for the Super Bowl!), this past week in college football (the upsets! the comebacks!), and has a few choice words for Caroline Wozniacki and her comments on Sharapova. This is a great podcast with Howie sounding just like the Howie of the ESPN newsroom in the days of old.
