Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our college football selections on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and I shall detract from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL debate to dip our feet.
It will probably be the first and only time this season we do this, as the previous week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season sport of NCAA soccer comprising one of the greatest clubs in the nation, and a legendary soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while I supported the Titans. We have been placing wins back and forth so it appears like it is my turn to the wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will follow the squares laying the lumber onto a public road favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days ahead of this Monday night event, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered at a solid -20 across the board whatsoever the best internet sportsbooks.
I like the Irish but you are leaning on the Cardinals. Other than the venue, why do you believe Louisville could hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup Swinger, IMO and at least a convincing triumph, said a lot about the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets move ahead to football, so will our records on this one and in which the games rely.
Remember Louisville utilized to play against big-name competitions? They more than held their own and engineered many upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out win matches and to alter the culture and worked miracles in Appalachian State. This wont happen right away as the ability level is down in theVille. Yet , this is a moment for Louisville, a team that has the chance.
I have read in which the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall because the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the shield, well, which makes me more nervous. You have up your Irish, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a team coming from a dismal 2-10 record last year in which they went winless. This rebuild is akin to attempting to turn it and carrying a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team which made it into the CFP last year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders as well, averaging over 33 points per match.
My issue is, how can be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, supposed to obtain some traction against a defense? Particularly when he is working with an offensive strategy and a trainer?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to have the ability to keep up and I am desperate to handicapping expertise that is prodigious and the ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am happy to read in your last sentence you are coming around to the sunny side of sports gambling, or you are simply being the exact identical shrewd a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers that are currently making college football selections decide on this. Im the first to realize Louisville fully pumped and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 last season.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new coach brings a fresh mindset on creating a statement, and this being a match, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to hope the Irish will take them and not have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with the gold and blue is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS, when dishing out 20 or more specimens. That defense you said may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, whenever you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or even Bama, it will take time.
I was a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, because Louisville might be greater but Id submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable record left by an awkward trainer such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the general public is correct, and also in this instance they are. Until when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week next week, lets see what happens on Monday when the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
