Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and leave our school football picks on the Monday night game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals and I shall detract from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL discussion to dip our toes.
It will probably be the first and only time this season we do this, as the previous week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season game of NCAA football featuring one of the very best clubs in the country, plus a legendary soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets start the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the best of me last week while I supported the Titans. We have been placing wins on and back so it looks like its my turn to the wreath, as I will follow each of the squares laying the lumber that is heavy on a road favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days ahead of the Monday night affair, I see the line has spiked a half-point on the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered in a solid -20 throughout the board at all of the best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I like the Irish but you are currently leaning onto the Cardinals within this season-opening battle. Apart from the place, why do you believe Louisville will hang with the boys out of South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes and a triumph IMO, said a great deal about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Lets move to real football, where the games count and so will our records with this one.
Remember Louisville used to play against competitions? They more than held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games to see and the Cardinals were a thrilling club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) owner, Louisville football last year was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked miracles and will be out win games and to change the culture. This wont happen immediately as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a significant time for Louisville, a group that has the chance.
Ive read where the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and I enjoy Hassan Hall as the direct running back. The shield which makes me more worried than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9. You have up your Irish please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing since the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying into this match. 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 akin to attempting to turn it and taking a hot air balloon.
While this may eventually happen, the problem 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, surrendering just 17.2 points over the normal season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders averaging 33 points per match over.
My query is, just how is a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, supposed to gain any traction against a defense that is Irish? Particularly when he is 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 in which Louisville is going to have the ability to keep pace with this Golden Domers and I am desperate for handicapping experience and the brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am glad to read in your last sentence you are coming around to the glowing side of sport gambling, or youre just being the same shrewd a** you are. Ill let the SBR readers who are making this is decided on by college football selections. Im the first to understand Louisville completely sucked and was not only 2-10, however 1-11 ATS final season.
Just like he gave up around the Atlanta Falcons, However, that team COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A new attitude is brought by A new trainer and with this being a match, Satterfield will sell his team. Louisville does have to hope not and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with all the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, and a ATS, when dishing out more or 20 specimens. That defense you said may improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, whenever you dont/can not recruit like Clemson or Bama, it is going to take some time.
I was a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping that was impressive resume, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this event, because Louisville could be better but Id submit that they could be coached with a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable document rendered by an coach like Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that laying nearly three touchdowns on the road would be square biz for sure and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the public is correct, and in this case they are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week next week, let us see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
