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 game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and also that I shall deviate from our regularly scheduled program of NFL debate to dip our feet.
It will probably 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 a regular-season sport of NCAA football comprising one of the greatest teams in the country, plus a legendary football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the discussion after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while the Titans were endorsed by me. Weve been placing wins back and on so it appears like its my turn to get the gold wreath, as I will accompany each of the squares laying the heavy lumber onto a road favorite and endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days before the Monday night event, I see that the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered at a solid -20 across the board at all the best internet sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but youre leaning in this season-opening clash on the Cardinals. Other than the venue, why do you believe Louisville will hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, a win and at least IMO, said a great deal about the direction of both the Steelers and Titans. Lets move to football, will our recordings on this one and where the games rely.
Remember those Thursday night games Louisville utilized to play against big-name competitions? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch and the Cardinals were an golf club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its counterfeit (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders in Appalachian State and are out to change the culture and win matches. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a group that has the opportunity to begin taking actions.
I have read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall as the direct running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 the defense which makes me more nervous. Why you have your Irish up, please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing 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 he has a team coming from a dismal album this past year, where they went winless in ACC activity. 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 issue is that Louisville is facing a group that made it into the CFP last year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging 33 points per game over.
My question is, how is a quarterback like traveling whos slow to discharge, designed to get some traction against a defense? Particularly when he is working with a new coach and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
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 the Golden Domers and I am desperate for prodigious handicapping experience and your sage wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to see in your last sentence youre coming on to the glowing side of sport gambling, or you are simply being the exact identical wise a** you are. I will allow the SBR readers who are currently making college football picks decide on that. I am the first to understand Louisville fully pumped and was, but 1-11 ATS final year.
However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons. A fresh mindset is brought by A trainer and this being a national game, Satterfield will sell his team on building a statement. Louisville does have to hope they will not be taken by the Irish and never have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with the blue and gold is ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS when dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you mentioned might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or Bama, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because although youve got an impressive handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, because Louisville might be greater but Id submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their record left by an coach such as Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the street is square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy street chalk, but on occasion the people is correct, and also in this case they are. Until once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
