Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our school football picks and then I shall detract to dip our toes.
It will almost certainly be the very first and only time this year we do this, as the previous week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season game of NCAA football comprising one of the greatest teams in the country, and a mythical soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I supported the Titans. Weve been placing wins forth and back so it appears like its my turn to the wreath, as I will accompany the squares laying the lumber on a road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days ahead of the Monday night affair, 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 at a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever the very best internet sportsbooks.
Youre currently leaning on the Cardinals in this clash although I love the Irish. Apart from the place do you believe Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup Swinger, IMO and at least a successful triumph, said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans direction. Lets move to soccer, will our records with this one and in which the matches rely.
Remember Louisville used to perform against competitions that are big-name? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out to alter the civilization and win matches and worked miracles in Appalachian State. This wont happen immediately as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a major time for Louisville, a group which has the opportunity to start taking steps.
I have read in which the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall since the lead running back. The shield, well, that makes me more worried than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9. Why you have your Irish up please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy inside their nest flying into the 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 in ACC activity. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and trying to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group which made it to the CFP last year and possessed 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 met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per match.
My query is, how can be a quarterback like Pass whos slow to release, designed to gain any traction against a swarming Irish defense? Particularly when he is working with an offensive strategy and a new coach?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville will have the ability to keep pace and I am desperate to the ancestral wisdom and handicapping experience that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to see in your last sentence you are coming around to the glowing side of sport gambling, or youre just being the identical shrewd a** you are. Ill allow the SBR readers who are making college football selections decide on this. I am the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and sucked final season.
Just like he composed to the Atlanta Falcons, but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new mindset is brought by A new trainer and his team will be sold by Satterfield on building a statement, with this being a game. Louisville does have to trust they will not be taken by the Irish and never have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with all the blue and gold is simply 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS, when dishing out more or 20 digits. This defense you mentioned might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or even Bama, it is going to take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this instance, because Louisville might be better compared to last year but I would submit that they are trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable document rendered by an equally awkward trainer like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the road would be square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the people is right, and in this instance they surely are. Until when 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.
