Notre Dame (9) vs Louisville
Monday, September 2 nd, 8:00 PM in Cardinal Stadium
Swinging Johnson: This week Doug Upstone and I will deviate to dip our toes and also leave our school football selections on the Monday night match between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Louisville Cardinals.
It will almost certainly be the first and only time this year we do so, as the previous week of display NFL football is somewhat lackluster compared to a regular-season sport of NCAA football featuring one of the top clubs in the country, plus a legendary soccer program to boot up, Notre Dame.
Without further ado, let us start the debate after my friend Doug Upstone got the better of me last week while the Titans were backed by me. Weve been swapping wins back and forth so it looks like it is my turn for the wreath, as I will follow each of the squares laying the lumber that is heavy onto a public street favorite and heartily endorse the Irish.
After reviewing the college football odds nearly six days ahead of the Monday night affair, I see that the lineup has spiked a half-point about the favorite, opening at Notre Dame -19 1/2 to where it is currently offered at a solid -20 round the board whatsoever of the very best online sportsbooks.
Doug, I enjoy the Irish but youre leaning within this battle to the Cardinals. Aside from the venue, why do you believe Louisville could hang with the boys from South Bend?
Doug Upstone: Yup and a triumph IMO, said a lot about the management of the Steelers and Titans. Let us move to football, so will our records with this one and in which the games rely.
Remember those Thursday night games Louisville utilized to perform against opponents that are big-name? They held their own and engineered upsets. These were fun games and the Cardinals were an exciting golf club.
But such as the former Papa Johns Stadium and its counterfeit (in real life) owner, Louisville football last season was worse than the usual three-day-old pizza.
Scott Satterfield worked wonders in Appalachian State and will be out to alter the civilization and win matches. This will not happen right away as the talent level is down in theVille. However , this is a time for Louisville, a team which has the chance.
Ive read in which the Cards trainers have sped up the slow mechanisms of QB Jawon Pass (good name for a QB) and that I like Hassan Hall since the direct running back. Than using a ticket for the Colts at OVER 9 for season 23, the protection which makes me more nervous. Why you have up your Irish please do tell.
Swinging Johnson: The Cardinals wont be doing much flying in this game as the Notre Dame defense will keep them comfortable in their nest. Scott Satterfield is in the big leagues and hes got a team coming off of a dismal record last year in which they went winless in ACC action. This rebuild is akin to carrying a hot air balloon and trying to turn it in an F-22 Raptor.
While that may eventually happen, the issue is that Louisville is facing a group that made it to the CFP this past year and possessed 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 until they met Clemson from the CFP semifinals. The Irish offense clicked on all cylinders also, averaging over 33 points per match.
So, my query is, how will be a quarterback like traveling who is slow to release, designed to get some 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 where Louisville is going to be able to keep pace with the Golden Domers and I am desperate to your sage wisdom and prodigious handicapping expertise!
Doug Upstone: Well, Swinger, I am happy to read in your last sentence youre coming on to the glowing side of sport gambling, or you are simply being the same wise a** you usually are. I will let the SBR readers that are making school football selections decide on that. Im the first to understand Louisville fully pumped and was, but 1-11 ATS final year.
Like he composed on the Atlanta Falcons but coach Bobby Petrino was given up on by that staff COMPLETELY. A new coach brings a fresh mindset and this being a federal game, Satterfield will market his staff on creating a statement. Louisville does have to trust the Irish will take them for granted and never have much fight.
Lets also think about, Brian Kelly using the blue and gold is just 10-13-1 ATS as a road favorite, also if dishing out 20 or more specimens, a mere 7-9-1 ATS. That defense you said may improve as the season progresses but substituting five starters, even if you dont/can not amuse like Clemson or even Bama, it is going to take some time.
Swinging Johnson: Well Doug, I was a bit facetious because although youve got an impressive handicapping resume, you miss the mark from time to time. And in this scenario, you happen to be shooting blanks because Louisville might be better than last year but Id submit that they could be trained by a Rhesus monkey and enhance upon their deplorable document rendered by an equally inept coach such as Petrino.
I understand that placing nearly three touchdowns on the road is square biz for sure 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 really are. Until next week once we get back on our NFL Game of the Week, then lets see what happens on Monday night once the Irish come ready to squint at Louisville.
