This week The Schwab puts the National Championship Game in its place in history as ‘Bama comes from behind to win it all. Who is better the Bear or Saban? Plus more insight into who will be in those brackets come March, the NFL playoffs (the Chiefs demise! The Titans victory!), the woes of the Atlanta Hawks…and even the politics of Olympic figure skating. The whole week of sports placed into perspective by the man who knows the whole history of sports.
In the spirit of “Should Auld Acquaintance”, we thought that we’d share this interview with Charley Steiner and Howie Schwab on this New Year’s Day. It’s about twenty minutes of laughter, Dodgers, and some surprising comments about the NFL. Enjoy!
This week the Schwab speaks first about some of the things of interest to him: The Steelers’ touchdown that wasn’t, the Rams team that is, the amazing upset of UNC by Wofford, and of course, the Las Vegas Golden Knights. And then he and ESPN legend turned Dodgers’ Broadcasters discuss the World Series, the Rams and why Charley doesn’t watch the NFL anymore (a fellow broadcaster with CTE), what happened to Boxing and Derek Jeter and the Marlins.
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
A Great Podcast from The Schwab on his views on the college football playoffs (8 teams instead of 4?), Greg Schiano & Tennessee (Fair? Not Fair?), an update on the Chaminade UVA game that Chris Berman had mentioned, the start of college hoops and the Wildcats & Blue Devils, and some interesting stats on those Golden Knights of Vegas and more, much more.
Happy Thanksgiving from The Schwab Speaks! This week, The Schwab has an old school ESPN feast as he catches up with his friend Chris Berman (starts at 4:00 on podcast). Boomer shares how he has spent his first non-NFL studio fall in a long time…helping coach the U Mass football at Tennessee, calling the MLB playoffs at Fenway, assisting in the coin toss of a Brown Dartmouth football game at Fenway, golf at Torrey Pines and more. 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.
It’s a great podcast from Howie “Stump the Schwab” now Fox Sports’ College Hoops Bracketologist. First up, the Schwab apologizes (yes apologizes!) to Miama Hurricane fans for not taking the team as seriously as he should have..then lots more college football. The NFL is discussed with the Schwab giving his unique insights into the Rams, the Giants and others. The Schwab then puts the Women’s Fed Cup win into historical perspective. Onto the NBA and some thoughts on the first part of the season including the Celtics great start. And college hoops, of course, with the Schwab’s thoughts on who is underrated, who is overrated, and who doesn’t matter. Do you agree with the Schwab? Disagree? Listen! Share! Comment!
Coming soon to your screens….The Schwab to Fox as their college hoops bracketologist! But you don’t have to wait…you can hear this week’s views on the Heisman Race (has Barkley blown it?), Justin Verlander skipping the parade for his wedding (he thinks he made the right call), Eli’s future with the Giants and the NFL…and much, much more including this weeks old school matchup of the Convicts vs. the Catholics (Miami-Notre Dame). Who will win? Listen and find out.
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.
