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
“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.
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.
