Wake Forest Is Claiming That Louisville Had Access To Their Game Plan Prior To Curb Stomping Them 44-12
TheBigLead- Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson said his university is concerned Louisville had access to the Demon Deacons’ game plan before last Saturday’s game and is trying to get to the bottom of it.
“We are concerned that there was some type of security breach,’’ coach Dave Clawson said Tuesday. “I have shared it with Ron Wellman, and we’re doing everything we can to make sure all of our information and data is more secure moving forward.’’
Wellman, Wake Forest’s director of athletics, said Clawson told him of the possible breach on Friday, the day before the Deacons’ lost to the fifth-ranked Cardinals 44-12. Wellman said a member of Wake Forest’s traveling party found the documents at the stadium.
Here's what I am not going to do. I am not going to say that Dave Clawson is full of shit. If he just happened to have this particular conspiracy theory waiting in his back pocket then he surely would have busted it out when his team got smacked around by NC State, or when they were humbled by the cadet-athletes of Army, or when they lost literally any other game in which the other team knowing their strategy would have had an effect on the outcome. Why claim that Louisville stole your game plan when Lamar Jackson would have left his footprints all over your back with or without knowing whatever lackluster defense you were planning on laying out in front of him?
That's why I have reason to believe that Louisville did have access to Wake Forest's game plan...I am just not at liberty to say that they went out of their way to get it. There's no doubt in mind this was a "finders keepers" situation, because there's no way Bobby Petrino's drunk ass took time that would have been better spent boning boosters to orchestrate a heist of Wake Forest's personal belongings. Sorry Dave, but you only have your own locker room to look into. My bet is that some backup long snapper missed the can when he read "...vs. Louisville" and went to throw away the playbook he undoubtedly wouldn't need. If I were to play the odds I'd bet that a Demon Deacon - who had already resigned himself to a demoralizing loss - got a little careless with his confidentials. That makes way more sense than a National Championship contending team risking their season to get a leg up on some cupcake competition. Yes, even if that team happens to be coached by a man that's just untrustworthy enough to run for President...
