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.
“First of all Howie, it’s just great to talk ball with you,” says this week’s guest ESPN’s Joe Tessitore. This week The Schwab speaks with Tessitore on this weekend’s Red River (Texas Oklahoma Showdown), SEC, Alabama, LSU, Heisman…and a little boxing to boot. Tessitore also talks about one of his favorite games ever which featured Boise State and Nevada with a relatively unknown Quarterback named Colin Kaepernick. And The Schwab shares his insights on the MLB Playoffs and the NHL’s newest team the Golden Knights. Like, share, comment, and talk sports.
“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?
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.
