Boomer also shares his thoughts on the NFL season so far,  what he talked about with Warren Moon this past summer, the anthem situation and why football should be a unifier, last year’s Super Bowl comeback, and who might be in this one. Plus, the greatest upset that he ever reported on in the early days of ESPN …and it’s not in football. Listen, Share, Comment.

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…

Ah The Schwab Speaks on this year’s World Series…he gives his pick and more. Which previous Series does this remind him of? Who will emerge as the star? And his thoughts on the biggest weekend in college football coming up…Ohio State or Penn State? And who is ahead in the Heisman Race? Plus the LA Rams, who knew? Will the Browns win a game this season? And the NBA is underway…too early to say anything…of course not!

1981_NLDS2_o12tld4e_5ougbe5i

 

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.
