Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in 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 also that I shall deviate to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this season we do this, as the last week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the greatest teams in the nation, plus a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I backed the Titans. Weve been placing wins back and forth so it looks like it is my turn for the wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will follow each of the squares laying the lumber on a road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days ahead of this Monday night event, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its presently offered in a solid -20 round the board at all the very best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I love the Irish but you are leaning within this season-opening clash on the Cardinals. Other than the place is it that you think Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup IMO and a convincing win, it said a lot about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move to real football, will our records on this one and in which the matches count.
Recall those Thursday night games Louisville utilized to perform against big-name competitions? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games and the Cardinals were an exciting club.
But like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders in Appalachian State and are out to change the civilization and win matches. This will not happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. However , this is a moment for Louisville, a group that has the opportunity.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall as the lead running back. The shield, well, which makes me more nervous than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9. Why you have your Irish up, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest, flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team coming off of a dismal 2-10 album last year, in which they went winless in ACC action. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is confronting a group which made it into the CFP last year and possessed only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per match.
So, my query is, just how can be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, supposed to gain some traction against a swarming defense that is Irish? Especially when he is working with an offensive scheme that is entirely new and a new coach?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville will have the ability to keep pace with this Golden Domers and Im desperate for the sage wisdom and handicapping experience that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming around to the sunny side of sport gambling, or youre just being the exact same wise a** you usually are. Ill let the SBR readers that are making school football selections decide on this. Im the first to realize Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 and completely sucked last season.
Like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A fresh mindset is brought by A new coach and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on building a statement, this being a national match. Louisville does have to trust the Irish will take them for granted and never have a lot of fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and the blue is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS when dishing out more or 20 digits. This defense you said might improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, if you dont/can not recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because though you have an handicapping that was impressive resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this situation, because Louisville could be greater compared to last year but I would submit that they could be coached with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their document left by an awkward trainer such as Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the road would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the general public is correct, and in this instance they certainly are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, let us see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
