The Schwab Speaks with Dickie V–On Everything But College Hoops!

So…today The Schwab Spoke with Dick Vitale on everything BUT college hoops. Instead, they talked about some of Dick’s other sports passions…Tampa Bay Bucs, Tampa Bay Rays, Notre Dame football as well as some childhood memories of being a Yankees fan.  CsR-e_vWcAAQr_u


The Schwab Speaks (with better audio) on The Whirling Darvish, the Dodgers & other trades, NFL early retirements & camps, Jameis Winston, oh and some Beano Cook memories.


Will Yu Darvish take the Dodgers all the way? Should the Astros have done more? Was John Urschel, the Raven who took early retirement to pursue a PhD at MIT, the last true recruit of the tragic Joe Paterno? A few Beano Cook memories, the late, great college football analyst, particularly on his interview with a Heisman Trophy winner who turned down the NFL…and more. 

The Schwab & Amazing (Branden) Grace

The Schwab Speaks again! And as Kyrie Irving just unfollowed LeBron James on Instagram, the Schwab weighs in on the Cleveland soap opera. Will Derrick Rose be the answer? Meanwhile the Schwab takes issue with those who aren’t impressed by Branden Grace’s 62 in the Third Round at the British Open (lowest score ever in a major) and weighs on in the activity in the NL Central. Where will the next big MLB trade come from? Share your feedback with us!

Another Schwab Speaks

Let’s face it-the Home Run Derby is really the interesting part of the All-Star Break. So…chill tonight (or tomorrow) and listen to the one and only Howie Schwab on the first half of the baseball season, which NBA teams are making smart moves in the off-season, his beef with the NY Jets, and why tennis needs to reworks its ranking system. Oh and that is just for starters.

We’re still in the pre-season ourselves with this podcast so leave comments, send us an email (, and ask us questions!
