New details emerge in WakeyLeaks scandal (Louisville lied)

When it was discovered that Louisville received Wake Forest’s playbook from Wake Forest’s own radio announcer, Louisville went on the defense, saying Tommy Elrod, the announcer, reached out to Louisville with the inside info.

But now, in a report from The Courier-Journal, cell phone records show Louisville assistant Lonnie Galloway called Elrod the week before the game, not the other way around.

From Steve Jones over at the C-J:

No one disputes that Wake Forest radio analyst Tommy Elrod shared plays with U of L co-offensive coordinator Lonnie Galloway before the teams played in November. Who initiated the conversation that led to the play-sharing, though?

That’s less clear after the Courier-Journal obtained cell phone records covering mid-October to mid-December that show it was Galloway who called Elrod three days before the Nov. 12 game.

Galloway talked on Nov. 9 for 25 minutes with Elrod, who is Galloway’s longtime friend and former coaching colleague on Wake Forest’s staff, according to the university’s response to the Courier-Journal’s open records request.

That doesn’t line up with what Jurich acknowledged in a statement issued Dec. 14 that stated “Lonnie received a call from Elrod during the week of the Wake Forest game, and some information was shared with him that week.”

In summary, questions aren’t completely answered as to what really happened in the exchange of the playbook. But we do know Tom Jurich is a liar, Bobby Petrino is a liar and Louisville is still the lyingest athletic department to ever lie.

    I disagree; the questions as to what really happened in the exchange of the playbook are now pretty damned obvious! I’m almost starting to wish they would hold off on some of the douchebaggery for a little while and wait until a time when I need more entertainment from them.

    and once again, nothing will happen. Makes you wonder why we question all the cheating on Floyd Street

      Kind of how Trump operates. Always lie, exaggerate and bully and eventually people just accept that you will never change and begin to justify in their own minds some illogical rationalization.

    It really doesn’t matter who called who, Louisville cheated. Then they tried to lie about the cheating.

      It sort of matters a large amount. Its one thing if Wake reached out, provided info, Louisville used it, and then tried to cover it up. Its an entirely different thing if Louisville reached out and asked for the illegal info, then tried to cover it up.

      The cover up is the same, but the act of cheating is 2 different offenses depending on intent, at least in my mind

      No. They knew it was illegal and unethical to receive another team’s playbook. Who called who is irrelevant. They knew it was wrong either way, then they lied to try to cover it up. Louisville cheated and knew they were cheating.

      Who called first absolutely matters. It’s like the difference between first and second degree murder. If Louisville called first, it is premeditated cheating. Proving this point, there’s a reason Louisville lied about it, because Louisville also knows it is worse.

      J-Dub421 you are either a troll or an idiot. Both situations are cheating, but they are not equal. One is premeditated cheating, the other is still cheating, but a crime of opportunity. Both should be punished, but one more severely.

      It does and it doesn’t matter. Sort of like the difference between first and second degree murder. Both are terrible crimes, but one slightly more than the other.

    The university of Louisville is the most protected sport’s program in the history of college athletes!.. NCAA still stalling on the hookergate scandal!!… It’s sad!

    Louisville did not lie…they offered “alternate facts” (rolling eyes).

    If i’m the NCAA enforcement staff reading this, four words come to mind…Lack of Institutional Control in all things related to their sports teams.

    They never thought the C-J or anyone else would get to the cell phone records. Wouldn’t it be interesting to know who Andre McGee called on all those occasions, just before he picked up the stacks of cash?
