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.
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…
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!
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.
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.
Old School ESPN: The Schwab & Fox’s Tim Brando go back and forth on college football, ESPN memories, and even a little NFL in this edition. Who do they think will go the long haul for the Heisman Ceremony in New York? What’s up in the SEC? Who does Tim think is the best team in the SEC East (it will surprise you) ? And their view on Big Ten? Plus The Schwab’s thoughts on the opening of the NFL, Sloane Stephens, and of course, boxing.
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.
