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 plan of NFL discussion to dip our feet and leave our school football selections on the Monday night match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will most likely be the first and only time this year we do so, as the last week of exhibition NFL football is somewhat lackluster in comparison to some regular-season game of NCAA soccer featuring one of the greatest clubs in the nation, and a mythical soccer 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 while the Titans were backed by me. Weve been swapping wins forth and back so it appears like its my turn to get the golden wreath, as I endorse the Irish and will follow the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a public road favorite.
After reviewing the school football odds nearly six days prior to this Monday night event, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point on the favorite, starting at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is presently offered at a solid -20 across the board at all of the very best internet sportsbooks.
I enjoy the Irish but youre currently leaning onto the Cardinals in this season-opening clash. Besides the place do you believe Louisville can hang with the boys?
Doug Upstone: YesSwinger, and a triumph IMO, it said a great deal about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Lets move ahead to soccer, where the matches rely and so will our records on this one.
Remember Louisville used to perform against big-name opponents? They more than held their engineered and own several upsets. These were fun games and the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But just like the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) owner, Louisville football last season was worse than a three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield will be out win games and to change the civilization and worked wonders at Appalachian State. This wont happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. Yet this is a big moment for Louisville, a group that has the opportunity.
I have read where the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (great name for a QB) and I like Hassan Hall since the lead running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 the protection which makes me more nervous. Why you have your Irish up, please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest flying in this game. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a group coming off of a dismal 2-10 record where they went winless in ACC action last year. This rebuild is akin to taking a hot air balloon and trying to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While that could eventually occur, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group that made it into the CFP last year and owned one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football, devoting only 17.2 points over the regular season and moving a perfect 12-0 till they met Clemson in the CFP semifinals. The offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per game.
So, my question is, just how is a quarterback like Pass whos slow to release, designed to obtain any traction against a shield? Especially when hes working with a trainer and an entirely new offensive strategy?
Please, Doug, save me Im lost! I find no way, shape or form where Louisville is going to be able to keep up with the Golden Domers and I am desperate to handicapping expertise that is prodigious and your brand new wisdom!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, Im pleased to read in your last sentence you are coming on to the bright side of sports gambling, or you are simply being the identical wise a** you are. I will let the SBR readers who are currently making that is decided on by college football selections. I am the first to understand Louisville completely sucked and was 1-11 ATS, although not just 2-10 last year.
Like he gave up about the Atlanta Falcons but coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that team COMPLETELY. A trainer brings a new mindset on creating a statement, and with this being a game, his staff will be sold by Satterfield. Louisville does have to hope never and they will not be taken by the Irish for granted have a lot of fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using the blue and gold is ATS as a road favorite, also a mere 7-9-1 ATS, when dishing out 20 or more digits. That defense you mentioned may improve as the year progresses but replacing five starters, even whenever you dont/can not amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it is going to take time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because although you have an handicapping restart, then you miss the mark from time to time. And in this case, because Louisville could be better but Id submit that they could be coached by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable record rendered by an inept trainer such as Petrino you happen to be shooting blanks.
I understand that laying nearly three touchdowns on the street would be square biz for certain along with Joe Q. Public never got rich by gambling the heavy road chalk, but on occasion the general public is right, and also in this situation they certainly are. Until once we get down on our NFL Game of the Week next week, lets see what happens on Monday once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
