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 match between the Louisville Cardinals and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and also that I will detract from our regularly scheduled plan of NFL discussion to dip our toes into uncharted waters.
It will most likely be the first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of exhibition NFL soccer is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season sport of NCAA soccer featuring one of the greatest clubs in the country, plus a legendary football program to boot, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us begin the debate after my buddy Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while I endorsed the Titans. Weve been swapping wins forth and back so it appears like its my turn to the gold 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 before the Monday night event, I see the lineup has spiked a half-point on the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where its now offered at a solid -20 round the board whatsoever of the very best internet sportsbooks.
I love the Irish but you are leaning to the Cardinals. Aside from the venue, why do you believe Louisville could hang with the boys in South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yes a successful triumph and at least IMO, said a great deal about the direction of the Steelers and Titans. Lets move to football, in which the matches rely and so will our records with this one.
Recall Louisville used to play against competitions that are big-name? They more than held their engineered and own upsets. These were enjoyable games to watch and also the Cardinals were a thrilling golf club.
However, for example the former Papa Johns Stadium and its phony (in real life) proprietor, Louisville soccer last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win matches and to change the culture and worked miracles in Appalachian State. This wont happen immediately as the talent level is down in theVille. This is a big moment for Louisville, a group that has the opportunity.
I have read in which the Cards coaches have popped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall because the lead running back. Than with a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the defense, well, which makes me more worried. Why you have your Irish up, please dont forget.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much as the Notre Dame defense will keep them cozy in their nest, flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a team coming from a dismal album this past year, where they went winless. This rebuild is comparable to carrying a hot air balloon and seeking to turn it.
While that may eventually happen, the problem is that Louisville is facing a team which made it to the CFP last year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the normal season and heading a perfect 12-0 until they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders as well, averaging 33 points per game over.
My issue is, just how can be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to discharge, designed to gain any traction against a swarming defense that is Irish? Especially when hes working with a trainer and an offensive strategy that is entirely new?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I see no way, shape or form in which Louisville will be able to keep up and Im desperate for handicapping experience that is prodigious and the brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to read in your last sentence youre coming around to the bright side of sports gambling, or youre simply being the same wise a** you usually are. Ill let the SBR readers who are currently making school football picks decide on that. I am the first to realize Louisville was, however 1-11 ATS and completely sucked last year.
Just like he gave up on the Atlanta Falcons but coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that staff COMPLETELY. A coach brings a new attitude on making a statement, and this being a match, his team will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to trust never and the Irish will take them for granted have a lot of fight.
Let us also think about, Brian Kelly with all the gold and blue is ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS if dishing out 20 or more digits. That defense you mentioned might improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, when you dont/can not recruit like Bama or even Clemson, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was becoming a bit facetious because although youve got an handicapping that was impressive restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, you happen to be shooting, since Louisville might be greater but I would submit that they could be coached with a Rhesus monkey and improve upon their record left by an trainer like Petrino.
I know that laying nearly 3 touchdowns on the road is square biz for certain and Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but at times the public is right, and also in this case they definitely are. Until next week when we get down on our NFL Game of the Week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
