Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and render our college football selections and also I will detract from our regularly scheduled program of NFL discussion to dip our toes.
It will almost certainly be the very first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to a regular-season game of NCAA football comprising one of the very best clubs in the nation, and a mythical soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the discussion after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were backed by me. We have been swapping wins back and forth so it appears like its my turn to get the gold wreath, as the Irish are heartily endorsed by me and will follow the squares laying the heavy lumber on a public street favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days prior to this Monday night affair, I see that the line has spiked a half-point on the preferred, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered at a solid -20 across the board whatsoever the best online sportsbooks.
Youre currently leaning onto the Cardinals although I love the Irish. Other than the venue do you think Louisville could hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup at least and a convincing win IMO, it said a lot about the Steelers and Titans management. Let us move to real soccer, in which the matches rely and will our records with this one.
Remember Louisville used to play against opponents? They held their own and engineered several upsets. These were enjoyable games and also the Cardinals were an exciting club.
However, like the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its fake (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out to change the culture and win games and worked wonders in Appalachian State. This will not happen right away as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a big time for Louisville, a group that has the chance to begin taking steps.
I have read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I enjoy Hassan Hall since the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the protection, well, which makes me more nervous. You have up your Irish, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much as the Notre Dame defense will keep them snug in their nest, flying into this match. Scott Satterfield is presently in the big leagues and he has a group coming from a dismal 2-10 record this past year, where they went winless in ACC activity. This rebuild is akin to taking a hot air balloon and trying to turn it into an F-22 Raptor.
While that may eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a team which made it into the CFP this past year and owned only one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points within the normal season and going a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per match over.
My query is, how is a cop such as Pass whos slow to release, supposed to gain some traction against a shield that is Irish? Particularly when hes working with an offensive strategy and a coach?
Please, Doug, save me I am lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to have the ability to keep up with the Golden Domers and I am desperate to handicapping expertise that is prodigious and your ancestral wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am pleased to read in your last sentence youre coming on to the glowing side of sports betting, or you are simply being the exact 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 fully pumped and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 final year.
Just like he gave up to the Atlanta Falcons, but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A coach brings a new attitude and his staff will be sold by Satterfield on making a statement this being a game. Louisville does need to trust never and they will not be taken by that the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly using the blue and gold is only 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, and a mere 7-9-1 ATS, when dishing out more or 20 specimens. That defense you mentioned might improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, when you dont/cant recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because though youve got an handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville might be better than last year but Id submit that they are coached with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their deplorable document rendered by an equally awkward coach like Petrino.
I understand that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the road would be square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the public is correct, and also in this instance they really are. Until when we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, next week, lets see what happens on Monday when the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
