Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our college football selections on the Monday night match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then that I shall detract from our regularly scheduled program of NFL debate to dip our feet.
It will most likely be the very first and only time this season we do so, as the previous week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season game of NCAA football comprising one of the best clubs in the nation, plus a legendary soccer program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were supported by me. We have been swapping wins forth and back so it looks like it is my turn for the gold wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will accompany each of the squares putting the thick lumber onto a road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days prior to the Monday night event, I see the line has spiked a half-point about the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its currently offered at a solid -20 across the board at all of the best online sportsbooks.
Youre currently leaning to the Cardinals within this battle although doug, I enjoy the Irish. Other than the place, why do you think Louisville could hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup Swinger, and a successful triumph IMO, said a lot about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move ahead to real soccer, in which the games count and so will our records with this one.
Remember those Thursday night matches Louisville utilized to play against big-name opponents? They more than held their engineered and own several upsets. These were fun games to watch and also the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
However, like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles in Appalachian State and will be out win matches and to change the culture. This wont happen right away as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a moment for Louisville, a team which has the chance.
Ive read in which the Cards trainers 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 shield, well, which makes me more nervous than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9. Please do tell why you have up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much flying into this match as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a team last year, in which they went winless in ACC activity coming off of a dismal record. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing 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 within the normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they fulfilled Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per game over.
So, my question is, just how is a quarterback like traveling whos slow to release, designed to gain any traction against a swarming shield? Particularly when he is working with a coach and an entirely new offensive scheme?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville will have the ability to keep up with this Golden Domers and Im desperate for prodigious handicapping experience and your ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming on to the sunny side of sports gambling, or you are simply being the identical wise a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers who are making college football selections decide on that. Im the first to realize Louisville was not just 2-10, but 1-11 ATS and fully pumped final season.
Like he composed to the Atlanta Falcons, However, that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A coach brings a fresh mindset and his team will be sold by Satterfield on making a statement this being a national match. Louisville does need to trust they will not be taken by the Irish for granted and not have a lot of fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using the blue and gold is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also if dishing out 20 or more specimens, a ATS. That defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/can not amuse like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this instance, because Louisville may be better compared to last year but Id submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable record rendered by an equally inept coach like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that laying nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy street chalk, but sometimes the public is right, and also in this case they are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday when the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
