This week The Schwab Speaks on the past week’s NFL Divisional Series and this week’s upcoming Championship Series. He gives facts and figures that only the Schwab can. Plus, Fox Sports’ Bracketologist takes a hard look at the season so far and likes what he sees. His insights thus far may shape your bracket in March! Finally the Australian Open…is Venus over?
“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.
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.
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.
This week Karie Ross, former ESPN anchor and wife of Red Sox GM Dave Dombrowski about Oklahoma Football, life in the family of a GM during the latter part of the MLB season, the Red Sox and the playoffs…as well as reminiscing on the good old days.

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.
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 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?

Where will the next big MLB trade come from? Share your feedback with us!
