Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our school football selections on the Monday night match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and that I will detract to dip our feet.
It will almost certainly be the very first and only time this season we do so, as the last week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the best clubs in the nation, and a mythical football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were backed by me. Weve been swapping wins back and forth so it looks like it is my turn for the gold wreath, as I will follow the squares putting the thick lumber on a public road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days prior to this Monday night event, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered in a solid -20 round the board whatsoever of the very best online sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but youre leaning onto the Cardinals within this clash. Apart from the place is it that you believe Louisville will hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yes IMO and at least a successful win, it said a lot about both the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move to soccer, where the matches count and so will our records with this one.
Remember those Thursday night matches Louisville used to play against opponents? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were a thrilling club.
However, like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) owner, Louisville football last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win matches and to change the civilization and worked wonders in Appalachian State. This will not happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. Yet this is a time for Louisville, a group which has the chance to begin taking actions.
Ive read in which the Cards coaches have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall since the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the defense, well, that makes me more worried. You have your Irish up, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much since the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest flying into this match. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and hes got a group coming from a dismal 2-10 record this past year, where they went winless. This rebuild is comparable to trying to turn it into an F-22 Raptor and taking a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is facing a team which made it into the CFP this past year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
So, my query is, how is a quarterback like Pass whos slow to release, designed to gain any traction against a swarming shield that is Irish? Particularly when hes working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a trainer?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form in which Louisville is going to have the ability to keep up with the Golden Domers and I am desperate to prodigious handicapping experience and the sage wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to see in your last sentence you are coming on to the glowing side of sports gambling, or you are just being the same shrewd a** you usually are. Ill let the SBR readers who are currently making college football picks decide on that. Im the first to realize Louisville sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 last year.
Like he composed to the Atlanta Falcons but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A trainer brings a new mindset and his team will be sold by Satterfield on making a statement, this being a national game. Louisville does need to hope they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and never have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using gold and all the blue is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also when decked out 20 or more digits, a ATS. That defense you mentioned may improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, if you dont/cant amuse like Clemson or Bama, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville could be better than last year but Id submit that they are coached with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable document rendered by an coach like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the general public is correct, and in this instance they definitely 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 rumble in Louisville.
