Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I will deviate from our regularly scheduled program of NFL debate to dip our feet into uncharted waters and then render our school football picks.
It will probably 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 some regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the greatest clubs in the nation, and a mythical soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin 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 its my turn for the golden wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will follow all the squares laying the lumber on a public road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days prior to this Monday night event, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered in a solid -20 throughout the board whatsoever of the best internet sportsbooks.
I like the Irish but youre leaning to the Cardinals. Other than the venue is it that you believe Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, a triumph and at least IMO, it said a great deal about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us proceed to real soccer, where the matches rely and will our records on this one.
Remember all those Thursday night matches Louisville utilized to play against big-name opponents? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
However, just like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders in Appalachian State and are out to alter the civilization and win games. This wont happen right away as the ability level is down from theVille. Nonetheless, this is a huge moment for Louisville, a group that has the opportunity.
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 like Hassan Hall as the direct running back. The defense that makes me more nervous than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. Please do tell why youve got your Irish up.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much flying in this game since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a team this past year, where they went winless coming from a dismal album. This rebuild is comparable to trying to turn it and taking a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team which made it into the CFP this past year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 till they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per game.
My issue is, how is a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, designed to get any traction against a Irish defense? Particularly when he is working with a new coach and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville will be able to keep pace and I am desperate to prodigious handicapping experience and the brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming over to the glowing side of sports gambling, or youre just being the same shrewd a** you usually are. I will allow the SBR readers who are making this is decided on by college football selections. Im the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and sucked final year.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons but that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A fresh attitude is brought by A new coach on building a statement, and this being a national match, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to expect that the Irish will take them and never have much fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly with the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS, if dishing out more or 20 specimens. This defense you mentioned may improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, if you dont/cant recruit like Bama or Clemson, it will take time.
I was becoming a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping that was impressive resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, because Louisville could be greater but I would submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their record left by an trainer such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that placing nearly 3 touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but at times the public is right, and also in this case they definitely are. Until once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, let us see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
