Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our college football selections and then that I will deviate to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will probably be the first and only time this season we do this, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the best clubs in the country, and a mythical football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I supported the Titans. Weve been swapping wins forth and back so it appears like it is my turn to the gold wreath, as I will accompany each of the squares laying the lumber on a public road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days before the Monday night event, I see the line has spiked a half-point about the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered in a solid -20 round the board at all of the very best internet sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but youre leaning in this season-opening clash on the Cardinals. Aside from the place, why do you think Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup Swinger, IMO and a convincing win, it said a great deal about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Let us proceed to soccer, in which the matches count and will our recordings with this one.
Recall those Thursday night matches Louisville utilized to play against opponents? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games to see and also the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
However, such as the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles at Appalachian State and will be out win matches and to alter the civilization. This will not happen right away as the ability level is down in theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a team that has the opportunity.
I have read where the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall as the direct running back. The protection that makes me more nervous than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. Please do tell why you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a group coming from a dismal 2-10 record this past year, where they went winless. This rebuild is akin to trying to turn it in an F-22 Raptor and carrying a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team that made it into the CFP this past year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, equaling only 17.2 points within the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 till they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per game.
My query is, just how will be a quarterback like Pass whos slow to discharge, designed to get some traction against a swarming Irish defense? Especially when hes working with a new coach and an offensive strategy that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, rescue me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep up and Im desperate for the ancestral wisdom and handicapping experience that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im glad to read in your last sentence youre coming on to the glowing side of sport gambling, or you are simply being the exact shrewd a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers that are making this is decided on by college football picks. Im the first to realize Louisville sucked and was, however, 1-11 ATS last year.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons, but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new attitude is brought by A trainer and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on creating a statement with this being a match. Louisville does need to trust they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and not have a lot of fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly using the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS when dishing out 20 or more specimens. This defense you said might improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, when you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or Bama, it is going to take time.
I was a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville might be better compared to last year but I would submit that they could be coached by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable document rendered by an coach such as Petrino.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the people is correct, and also in this instance they surely are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week next week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
