Remember this game from a month ago...???

A 6-0 deficit turns into a 44-12 win by the time the game is over for Louisville and here's Cardinals head coach Bobby Petrino postgame...

After the revelation that now-former Wake Forest color guy Tommy Elrod was responsible for giving "plays" to Louisville and doing it for the last three years, apparently, the folks in Louisville addressed the issue with a prepared statement today, thanks to Ralph D. Russo's twitter Feed over at the Associated Press:

That just has to be one of the silliest responses ever... but the HQ knows that Louisville is the Ivory Soap of Athletic Departments...

"We got info, but we already knew what they were doing anyway..."

Good Lord, dude... and you're mad at the media for interrupting your bowl week preps...???

Excellent spin...

THURSDAY UPDATE: We can now add Virginia Tech to the mix as to the Elrod mischief...

Joe Giglio's piece from the Raleigh News and Observer adds Army to that mix as well...

Officials from Louisiana-Monroe, Utah State, Florida State, Syracuse, Boston College, Clemson, Duke, Notre Dame, Tulane and Virginia said on Thursday they have not been in contact with Wake Forest. Officials from North Carolina and N.C. State came out on Tuesday and clarified they were not involved. Duke has declined to comment.

The only team on Wake’s schedule from the past three years that has not responded to a request from The News & Observer is Indiana. Wake Forest played the Hoosiers in 2015 and ’16. Indiana also had a former Wake Forest assistant, Brian Knorr, on its staff in 2015.

Knorr is now a quality control assistant at Ohio State University.

Knorr has not responded to a request to go on the record as has Duke from a university standpoint.
