Viral Chris Mack Video was Allegedly Sent to Kenny Payne as a Joke

Saturday night, a video of Chris Mack celebrating his Louisville Cardinals’ win over Kentucky back in December hit the internet. If you have yet to see the video, take a gander.

KSR obtained the video anonymously.

This video inevitably adds to the plot of the Kentucky/Louisville basketball rivalry off the court, but now this plot thickens a little bit.

According to the Courier-Journal, Troy Hanke, an executive board member of the Mack Family Foundation and CFO of B.F. South Inc., tweeted today that he was the one who filmed the video and sent it to Kenny Payne as a joke. The tweet where Hanke owns up to the video has since been deleted.

We should get more answers on Monday; Louisville Athletic Director Vince Tyra told Tim Sullivan of the Courier-Journal that he has seen the video and will let Chris Mack handle it at his Monday press conference.

    My apologies…let me correct that: What kind of simpleton, douche-bag ‘coach’ behaves in such manner in his or his ‘bitch’s’ basement bar? Answer = uavel’s temporary coach.

    They are both wasted. Another sad look for UL. UNC beat them to a pulp and then beat them some more. I know we are 8-13, but I am glad Cal is more mature than these weirdos.

    Jokes are funny, so this wasn’t a joke by that definition. What kindve joke is it to send a former assistant coach this video after beating their previous team?

      Because it’s a compliment to kenny if you think about it. Not to mention Payne played at UofL so I’m sure he’s still a fan.

    KP is a legend. Please: Next time you see what’s his dookie name – on espn – he got absolutely schooled by Pervis and KP in 1986 NCAA championship. KP is a gem. Legend. Dude is the Man.

    This coming from a dude who hasn’t won anything at all at any school, ever.

    0 Final Fours, 0 NCAA Championships, and his best team choked in the Second Round as a #1 Seed right before Louisville hired him. Talk about failing upward…

      I have absolutely have no problem with a team/coach celebrating and having fun after beating us(UK). A big problem to worry about is when it’s not a big deal to beat us(UK). The video was fun and harmless. Making a big deal of it is petty. UK was KP’s employer, UL is his school, know the difference.

    That was Eric Wood former UL and Buffalo Bills center and Thurman Mermon look alike!

    Classic example of how losers act when they can’t believe they actually won.

    I can’t believe how many people are taking this video so seriously. Like the Mack video talking to Cal about the game earlier this season, it’s clearly a joke.

      Agreed! Much ado about nothing. Who cares?! By Monday UL won’t be honest about it anyway. It’ll be spun so that it’s all out of context etc. Blah blah. Just own it. It’s fun. Who cares.

    I’m glad UL has Mack, they will never be a factor while he is there. Nothing inspiring at all. If pitino had kept out of trouble he was a better coach there.

      A hall of fame coach is better than a coach still trying to prove himself? Wow, way to really go out on a limb there bud

    I have absolutely no problem with a team/coach celebrating and having some fun after they beat us(UK). The problem to worry about is when it’s not a big deal to beat us(UK). 2-3 mediocre seasons not going to the tournament is all it takes. The video was for fun and harmless. Making it a big deal is petty. UK was KP’s employer, UL is his school, know the difference.

    Less alcohol at UL would help their program. Eric Wood looking like young Scottie Davenport

    Curious as to who sent this to Drew “anonymously” and for what purpose?? Since the video clip is from December and sent to KP and probably circulated in the tight U of L circle, it could be a disgruntled Louisville fan maybe trying to embarass Mack… U of L has SO many PR issues that this timing may not be coincidental…

    For those saying this is just like the other Mack video (the one aimed at Cal), I disagree. That one was just some (somewhat) good natured ribbing/smack talk from one coach to another. This one is partially about maturity level. Granted, since I’m a teetotaler my perspective comes partially from that viewpoint, but even if I wasn’t, compare this video to what Mark Stoops has said a couple times. After a big win here or there he said he had some bourbon. Although I don’t drink at all and detest it for spiritual reasons, I believe from a pragmatic perspective there is a huge difference between a coach celebrating in the manner that Stoops apparently does and what we saw in this video.

    Stoops isn’t getting in front of a video camera and acting like an immature fool in a drunken manner as far as we know. I’m not saying I would fire Mack if I was the UL AD, but it definitely calls for disciplinary measures IMO.

    Louisville is simply a joke with clowns running the program. No further discussion needed.
