Tom Jurich admits UofL received confidential information from WakeyLeaks mole

And now, for an update on an earlier story: Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich just released a statement admitting that offensive coordinator Lonnie Galloway accepted confidential information about Wake Forest’s game plan for their game vs. Louisville from Wake mole Tommy Elrod and shared it with the UofL defensive staff.

“Our offensive coordinator Lonnie Galloway and Tommy Elrod have known each other since 2007. Lonnie received a call from Elrod during the week of the Wake Forest game, and some information was shared with him that week. Among the communication were a few plays that were sent and then shared with our defensive staff. None of the special plays were run during the course of the game. Our defense regularly prepares for similar formations every week in their normal game plan.”

“Any other information that may have been discussed was nothing that our staff had not already seen while studying Wake Forest in their preparations for the game and the material was not given any further attention. I’m disappointed that this issue has brought undue attention to our football staff as we prepare for our upcoming bowl game.”

This morning, Bobby Petrino went on Mike & Mike and denied having Wake Forest’s game plan, telling the hosts, “I don’t know what they’re talking about.”

So, Petrino lied. Again.

And Louisville cheated. Again.

And they’re trying to pretend this is not a big deal. Again.

And they’re probably going to get away with it. Again.

Got it.

    I love how Jurich tries to minimize the story – “oh sure, our guy received the insider information, but Wake Forest never actually ran those few plays, so it’s cool”
    What a weasel.

    Someone should ask this follow up question – “was Wake Forest forced into last-minute changes to their game plan once the leaked playbook was found?”

    Yes, they used it, but did they INTEND to use it? If they didn’t INTEND to use it, then they’ve done nothing wrong. Since it was dropped in their laps, they didn’t intentionally go looking for it, so it’s all good. /sarc

      don’t be an idiot. the fact that they had it and didn’t tell anyone force wake fresto scrap all of their “special plays” the day before their game, which means in invalidated a week maybe more worth of preparation for that game, which in and of itself gave louisville an advantage. you can’t be serious.

    Ever since Cal came to UK, UofL fans have screamed “cheater, cheater, cheater…”
    Since Cal came to UK, Louisville has bought players/recruits hookers and used stolen play information. But that’s none of my business tho.

    As I began reading, I was shocked that Mafia Tom was admitting that UofLOL received & used nefariously gained insider information. But true to his denial colors, states that Wake Forest didn’t use those plays (even though the Wake coach said they did).

    Can you get lack of institutional control for every sport program in the school having countless scandals of every sort? It’s crazy over there haha

    The real question is if Jurich admitted to this to get the media off the subject of the players getting shot because they clearly don’t want people talking about that. Starting players taking bullets can’t help with recruiting

    What I can’t comprehend is how UofL fans continuously defend their sports programs and their AD as one of the best in the business. It truly is amazing. It is abundantly clear that the UofL athletic department has dived head first into the “win at all cost” mentality. When does it reach the point where fans are unable to support the program? I would be embarrassed to be a UofL fan the way things have gone the last year.

    If the NCAA doesn’t have the balls to stick it to USmell (and they don’t), might the ACC step up and take care of this? I mean, how many times does a new conference member get to embarrass the whole group before somebody says “enough!” Oh wait, I forgot UNC pretty much got everybody else a free pass with their BS.

      I work with NCAA rules, there’s no rule that says you can’t buy/find/use another team’s playbook. So the NCAA can’t really do much about that.

      don’t be an idiot. there’s also nothing explicitly in the rulebook about hookers. but that’s not exactly legit either.
      just because it doesn’t spell it out explicitly doesn’t mean it’s not against the rules.

    Dear University of Louisville student-athlete,

    In order to play at this fine university you must understand that we are here to win at all costs, regardless of the perception that may be created in the process. Also, please note that at U of L, we spell the word ethics as follows: e-t-t-i-c-s. That way if anyone should question our intentions, we can say that we meant something else other than ethics. Ok?

    Sincerely,
    Tom Jurich

    The lying by Petrino is the worst part. I mean, if someone calls you with inside information, it’s human nature to want to at least listen to it. But don’t go on national radio and lie to America like a scumbag. Worse still, he premeditated that lie. He knew that Mike & Mike were going to ask him about Wake–it’s the only reason they had him on. Don’t get up there and lie about it. Moreover, if you’re going to be a scumbag and lie about it, at least make sure your AD isn’t going to totally reveal your lie mere hours later. Petrino is a clown.

    I halfway respect Jurich for at least admitting it. Yeah, he tried to downplay it, but it’s better than spewing out premeditated lies on national radio.

    “Among the communication were a few plays that were sent and then shared with our defensive staff.” Jurich sounds like a Lawyer because I read there was an entire playbook. But hew just references what was “among” many other things shared? Where is the media on this?

    Isn’t this par for the course for little bro, they sure do provide a lot of entertainment as a earlier poster stated. I haven’t seen cats paws, scorpiocard and other such loserville trolls since the pose and the fumble, thought they would be here defending old road rash petrino. I think this even puts more tarnish on the heisman that was won by LJ, though he probably deserved it, just a bad year for candidates when they give it to someone with a 1- 3 record against teams with a winning record.
    GO CATS, beat beat the wreck.

      Whatwasthat,

      I don’t know about the other Louisville clowns, but ol’ scorpiocard is hiding out over on Card Chronicle these days! The guy’s a weasel! I think the only way we see him on here anytime soon is if Kentucky loses to Georgia Tech, and Louisville beats LSU on December 31st. And maybe not then!

      Louisville fans are busy circling the wagons after Jurich’s statement earlier today! After all the trash they’ve talked about Cal since his arrival in 2009, it seems like karma is coming back to bite them big time! First, we have “hooker/strippergate” with their basketball program. Secondly, you have everything they did, said/and didn’t say, leading up to the football game. Jurich says back in the summer that expansion on their stadium would begin right after “the Kentucky win”. Their players refusing to say the word “Kentucky” in the week leading up to the game. Their band going over to play the UofL fight song as the Kentucky players are getting off the bus at PJCS. And finally, their QB “showboating” in the endzone, in a game they would eventually lose!

      Their arrogant AD, basketball and football coaches, and fan base deserve everything that is coming to them! Enjoy, Card fans!!

    Jeff Hullinger on channel 11 (local ATL NBC affiliate) just baked Petrino. They had a photo in background of Petrino in his neck brace and ARKANSAS jacket. Hullinger is an huge Falcons fan. He basically advised the viewer that Petrino lacked credibility; that his assistants knew of the WakeyLeak but Petrino still denied it. Hullinger ended the lambast by saying (paraphrased, kindly): If your son was recruited by this guy, would you let him play for Petrino? No, I think not. I was like: WOW!

On the flip side, two U of L players may not have been shot if he hadn’t won… I graduated from U of L and i would like to know when can I sue the Administration for devaluing my degree?

      There were plenty, on rivals too.

Just have to hope most of those posters were actually loserville trolls.
