Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM at Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I will deviate from our regularly scheduled program of NFL debate to dip our feet and then also render our school football picks.
It will probably be the very first and only time this season we do so, as the last week of display NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster compared to some regular-season game of NCAA soccer comprising one of the best clubs in the nation, and a legendary football program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, lets begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week with a bet on the Steelers while the Titans were supported by me. We have been swapping wins on and back so it appears like it is my turn for the wreath, as I will accompany each of the squares putting the thick lumber on a public street favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days before the Monday night event, I see that the line has spiked a half-point about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is now offered in a solid -20 round the board whatsoever the very best internet sportsbooks.
Doug, I like the Irish but you are currently leaning within this clash onto the Cardinals. Apart from the place, why do you believe Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: Yup a convincing triumph and IMO, it said a lot about the Steelers and Titans direction. Let us move ahead to soccer, where the matches count and will our records on this one.
Remember Louisville utilized to play against big-name competitions? They more than held their own and engineered many upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch and also the Cardinals were a thrilling club.
But for example the former Papa Johns Stadium as well as its phony (in real life) owner, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders in Appalachian State and will be out to change the civilization and win matches. This will not happen right away as the ability level is down from theVille. This is a time for Louisville, a team that has the chance.
Ive read where the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall since the lead running back. Than having a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season wins the shield, well, that makes me more worried. Please do tell youve got up your Irish.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals will not be doing flying in this match as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and he has a team this past year, where they went winless coming from a dismal record. This rebuild is akin to attempting to turn it into an F-22 Raptor and taking a hot air balloon.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is facing a team that made it into the CFP this past year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, surrendering just 17.2 points over the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense was clicking on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per match over.
So, my question is, just how is a quarterback like traveling whos slow to discharge, supposed to obtain some traction against a swarming defense that is Irish? Particularly when he is working with a new trainer and a completely new offensive strategy?
Please, Doug, rescue me I am lost! I see no way, shape or form where Louisville will be able to keep up and I am desperate for the ancestral wisdom and handicapping experience that is prodigious!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im happy to read in your last sentence youre coming on to the sunny side of sport betting, or youre simply being the identical shrewd a** you are. I will let the SBR readers that are making that is decided on by school football picks. Im the first to realize Louisville fully pumped and was 1-11 ATS, although not only 2-10 last season.
Like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons but that staff COMPLETELY gave up on coach Bobby Petrino. A trainer brings a fresh attitude on creating a statement, and with this being a game, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to trust never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly with gold and all the blue is simply 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS, if dishing out 20 or more digits. That defense you said might improve as the year progresses but substituting five starters, even when you dont/cant recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it will take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was being a bit facetious because though you have an impressive handicapping restart, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this circumstance, because Louisville might be greater compared to last year but I would submit that they are coached by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their record left by an trainer such as Petrino, you happen to be shooting blanks.
I know that laying nearly three touchdowns on the street is square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by betting the heavy road chalk, but sometimes the general public is correct, and also in this case they surely are. Until when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week next week, let us see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
