This week The Schwab Speaks on Super Bowl 52, ButlerGate, Doug Pederson’s decisions, and Josh McDaniels. Plus some thought on Porzingis’s ACL, what’s up (and what’s wrong) with U Conn Men’s Basketball & can Ollie survive plus the Winter Olympics! Like, Engage & Share.
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.
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.
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.
