puff schedule so far this year in the friendly confines of their home stadium
(excluding the neutral venue match up with VT) and that decision caught up with
them last week up in Lucas County, Ohio when Terrence Owens went to work on
them. This is the best Team Charlie
Strong has had during his tenure and Teddy Bridgewater is playing out of his
mind (completion percentage somewhere in the 70’s) AND he can tuck it
and run effectively as well. Last two
weeks key offensive linemen have been out which has caused some issues in their run game, but that won’t be an issue tonight.
Won’t over think this one… Louisville covers
comfortably in Jefferson County tonight my
Holt, I see your posts alot, and I always appreciate and respect your input. Lots of times we agree, as I have given you a
on more than one occasion. When I read your post above, I agree that Cincy has played a weak schedule, and I see that you mentioned Louisville was missing some key linemen which has affected their running game. With that said, Louisville has had an easy schedule too, wouldn't you agree? Especially since Pitt USF and Southern Miss are way down this year. Not to mention UNC trailed them 7-36 at halftime (Louisville converted off of two UNC turnovers), and came back in the second half and almost won. Louisville defender deflected a pass in the endzone at the end of that game to secure the W. UNC was also missing their starting Tailback in that game***
Cincinatti was missing their best pass rusher, DE Walter Stewart last week, and he is out again this week. The defense managed to keep Toledo's offense (who was averaging 40 pts a game) out of the endzone. They sacked the QB 3 times. (Stewart would have made a difference, I believe he has 5 sacks which leads the team).
Home team Louisville needed a goal line stand, four sacks, and an interception to defeat South Florida.
This info makes me think this is going to be a close game.
The reason I bring this up is because you seem extremely confident that Louisville covers this spread. Is there any info that you know or have seen that makes Louisville an easy pick in this one? Thanks BLP
