Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and that I will deviate from our regularly scheduled program of NFL discussion to dip our toes into uncharted waters and then also leave our college football selections.
It will probably be the very first and only time this season we do this, as the last week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season game of NCAA football comprising one of the greatest clubs in the country, and a legendary football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while I supported the Titans. Weve been placing wins forth and back so it looks like it is my turn to the wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will accompany the squares putting the thick lumber on a street favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days before the Monday night affair, I see that the line has spiked a half-point about the preferred, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered at a solid -20 round the board at all the very best internet sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but you are leaning onto the Cardinals in this clash. Apart from the place is it that you believe Louisville could hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup Swinger, IMO and a convincing triumph, said a great deal about the management of both the Steelers and Titans. Lets move to real soccer, where the matches count and so will our records on this one.
Remember all those Thursday night games Louisville used to play against competitions? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were enjoyable games to see and also the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
However, like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last year was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders and will be out to change the civilization and win matches. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down from theVille. This is a big time for Louisville, a team which has the opportunity.
Ive read in which the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall because the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the shield, well, which makes me more worried. Why you have your Irish up, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing much flying into this match since the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is currently in the big leagues and hes got a group coming from a dismal record last year, where they went winless in ACC action. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and trying to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While this may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is facing a team which made it into the CFP this past year and possessed one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense clicked on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per game.
So, my question is, just how can be a quarterback like traveling whos slow to discharge, supposed to get any traction against a swarming Irish shield? Especially when hes working with an offensive strategy that is entirely new and a new trainer?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep pace and Im desperate for your ancestral wisdom and handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to see in your last sentence you are coming around to the bright side of sport gambling, or youre simply being the identical shrewd a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers that are currently making this is decided on by college football selections. Im the first to understand Louisville was not only 2-10, however, 1-11 ATS and sucked final season.
But that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons. A fresh attitude is brought by A coach and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on creating a statement this being a federal match. Louisville does need to hope the Irish will take them for granted and never have a lot of fight.
Let us also consider, Brian Kelly with all the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS if dishing out more or 20 specimens. That defense you mentioned might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, whenever you dont/can not amuse like Bama or even Clemson, it will take some time.
I was 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 instance, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville might be better but I would submit that they are trained by a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their document left by an awkward coach like Petrino.
I know that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the public is right, and in this case they surely 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 squint at Louisville.
