Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our school football selections on the Monday night game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and then also that I will detract to dip our feet into uncharted waters.
It will probably be the first and only time this season we do this, as the last week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the top clubs in the country, and a mythical football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while the Titans were endorsed by me. Weve been placing wins forth and back so it looks like its my turn to the gold wreath, as I will accompany the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a public road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds almost six days prior to this Monday night event, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point on the preferred, starting Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently available at a strong -20 round the board at all of the best online sportsbooks.
I like the Irish but you are currently leaning in this battle to the Cardinals. Besides the venue, why do you think Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup , Swinger, and a win IMO, said a great deal about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Lets move ahead to real football, in which the matches count and so will our recordings with this one.
Remember those Thursday night games Louisville used to perform against big-name competitions? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were enjoyable games to see and the Cardinals were an golf club.
However, like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) owner, Louisville football last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out to alter the culture and win games and worked wonders in Appalachian State. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. However this is a time for Louisville, a team which has the opportunity.
Ive read where the Cards trainers have popped up the slow mechanics of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall as the lead running back. The defense, well, that makes me more worried than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins. 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 snug in their nest flying into this game. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and he has a group coming off of a dismal record this past year in which they went winless in ACC activity. This rebuild is comparable to attempting to turn it into an F-22 Raptor and taking a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group that made it into the CFP last year and possessed 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 fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per match.
My issue is, how will be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, supposed to obtain some traction against a defense? Particularly when he is working with a new coach and an offensive strategy that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville will be able to keep pace with this Golden Domers and I am desperate to your brand new wisdom and handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am happy to read in your last sentence you are coming on to the glowing side of sport gambling, or you are simply being the exact identical shrewd a** you usually are. Ill allow the SBR readers that are currently making this is decided on by school football picks. I am the first to realize Louisville sucked and was, however 1-11 ATS final season.
But that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons. A new mindset is brought by A coach on creating a statement, and this being a match, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to trust the Irish will take them for granted and never have a lot of fight.
Lets also consider, Brian Kelly using all the blue and gold is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS when dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you mentioned might improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, even if you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or Bama, it will take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because though you have an impressive handicapping resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this instance, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville could be better but Id submit that they are coached by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record left by an coach such as Petrino.
I know that laying nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but at times the general public is right, and also in this case they definitely are. Until next week once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, let us see what happens on Monday when the Irish come prepared to squint at Louisville.
