Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our school football picks on the Monday night game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals and then also that I shall deviate to dip our feet.
It will almost certainly be the very first and only time this year we do this, as the previous week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the greatest teams in the nation, plus a legendary football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I backed the Titans. Weve been swapping wins forth and back so it looks like its my turn to the gold wreath, as I heartily endorse the Irish and will accompany the squares putting the thick lumber onto a street favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days ahead of this Monday night affair, I see that the line has spiked a half-point about the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered at a solid -20 across the board at all the very best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but youre currently leaning to the Cardinals. Aside from the venue do you think Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, a successful triumph and at least IMO, it said a lot about the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets proceed to real football, will our records with this one and where the matches count.
Recall those Thursday night games Louisville used to perform against competitions? They held their own and engineered many upsets. These were fun games and also the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But just like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles at Appalachian State and are out to alter the civilization and win matches. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. Yet , this is a significant moment for Louisville, a group which has the chance.
I have read in which the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall as the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 the defense which makes me more nervous. Please do tell why you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing flying in this game since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a team coming from a dismal album where they went winless last year. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it.
While that may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a team that made it to the CFP this past year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per match.
My query is, just how is a quarterback like traveling whos slow to discharge, supposed to gain any traction against a shield that is Irish? Especially when he is working with a new trainer and an offensive strategy that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep up with this Golden Domers and I am desperate for the brand new wisdom and prodigious handicapping experience!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to read in your last sentence you are coming around to the glowing side of sport gambling, or you are simply being the exact same wise a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are making college football selections decide on this. I am the first to understand Louisville sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 final year.
But that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons. A fresh attitude is brought by A trainer on building a statement and with this being a federal match, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to hope the Irish will take them for granted and never have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using all the gold and blue is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS, if dishing out 20 or more specimens. This defense you said might improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, even whenever you dont/cant amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping that was impressive resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville could be greater than last year but Id submit that they could be coached by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record rendered by an inept coach such as Petrino.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the road is square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the public is correct, and in this situation they surely are. Until once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, let us see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
