Louisville is in a scandal, watch out for Joel Berry, Yahoo reports a major hack and more.

NCAA Football: Louisville at Houston Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Louisville has found itself in yet another scandal. Shocker, right? The Cards have admitted that they accepted confidential game plan information from Wake Forest mole Tommy Elrod. Of course, Louisville lied about having any knowledge of the situation, and then when they admitted that they did it, they acted as if they did nothing wrong.

Bobby Petrino, Tom Jurich and Offensive Coordinator Lonnie Galloway should be in a world of trouble, but they probably won’t be.

But it’s not just Louisville; this has become a full-blown ACC issue. Any school that Wake Forest has played recently will probably be contacted as the investigation continues. As of right now, Louisville is the only participant that without a doubt committed wrongdoing (aside from Tommy Elrod, of course).

Tweet of the day

Jurich should write Athletic Directing for Dummies, and the summary of it should be deny any wrongdoing, even when you admit you did something wrong.

Jurich says that even if Louisville hadn’t cheated they would’ve won, so it doesn’t matter, right? And even though people within the program have lied about this topic on multiple occasions, this time they’re definitely telling the truth, right?

Stewart Mandel uses a great analogy here about students in class. Yet Jurich still maintains that if the intel doesn’t get used, it isn’t cheating.
