Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and that I shall detract from our regularly scheduled program of NFL discussion to dip our toes into uncharted waters and render our college football selections.
It will almost certainly be the very first and only time this season we do so, as the previous week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season game of NCAA football comprising one of the greatest clubs in the country, and a mythical soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were backed by me. We have been placing wins back and forth so it looks like its my turn for the wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will follow all the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a road favorite.
After reviewing the college football odds almost six days prior to this Monday night event, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered in a solid -20 round the board whatsoever the best online sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but youre currently leaning on the Cardinals within this battle. Apart from the place do you believe Louisville can hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup , Swinger, at least and a win IMO, said a great deal about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Lets proceed to soccer, where the games count and will our records on this one.
Recall all those Thursday night games Louisville used to perform against opponents that are big-name? They held their engineered and own upsets. These were fun games to see and also the Cardinals were an exciting club.
But such as the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville football last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield are out to alter the culture and win games and worked miracles. This wont happen immediately as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a team which has the opportunity to start taking actions.
I have read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall as the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the protection, well, which makes me more worried. Why you have up your Irish, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing flying into this game as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a group last year, in which they went winless coming from a dismal album. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and attempting to turn it.
While this may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is confronting a group which made it to the CFP last year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, equaling only 17.2 points over the regular season and going a perfect 12-0 till they fulfilled Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders averaging 33 points per game over.
So, my question is, just how will be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, designed to get some traction against a Irish shield? Particularly when hes working with a coach and an offensive scheme that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep pace and Im desperate to prodigious handicapping experience and the sage wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to see in your last sentence you are coming on to the bright side of sport gambling, or youre just being the exact identical shrewd a** you usually are. I will allow the SBR readers who are currently making that is decided on by school football picks. Im the first to understand Louisville was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 and completely sucked last season.
But that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino, like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons. A fresh attitude is brought by A new coach on building a statement, and with this being a national game, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does need to trust never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with the blue and gold is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a ATS if dishing out 20 or more digits. This defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, if you dont/cant recruit like Clemson or Bama, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping that was impressive resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, because Louisville might be better but I would submit that they could be trained with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable document left by an awkward trainer like Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that placing nearly three touchdowns on the street would be square biz for sure along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the general public is correct, and in this instance they surely are. Until next week when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday night when the Irish come ready to rumble in Louisville.
