Sounds like the folks at Wake Forest are pretty mad at the moment...

 The Winston-Salem Journal is reporting that the school is investigating what they're referring to as a "breach" of their game plan when someone from their travelling party discovered documents inside the Cardinals' stadium detailing plays Wake hadn't run until that game. Those plays, apparently, had made their arrival to Louisville ahead of the Wake Forest team.

Here's the highlights that are all Wake early and Louisville late in the 44-12 win...


Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino responded to the Journal via email:

“I have no knowledge of the situation,’’ Petrino responded by email, when asked to comment about the report. “We take a lot of pride in the way we operate our program. As I’ve stated already this season, my coaching philosophy has always been to play the game with sportsmanship.

“Right now our focus is on our game (Friday) at Houston and finishing the 2016 season strong.’’

Head coach Dave Clawson discussed the breach in his part of the conference's coach call this week, but he wouldn't go into a whole lot of detail after saying the event happened Friday before the game with Louisville. Clawson told Wake AD Ron Wellman about it and Wellman isn't saying how long his internal investigation would take.

No word if ACC Commissioner John Swofford has been notified of the investigation by Wake Forest, but the HQ has a good feeling the league is watching every move where this is involved.
