BC in the clear on Wakeyleaks
I don't know if any other program is going to get in trouble for the Wakayleaks scandal, but Steve Addazio verified that he nor anyone on his staff had any contact with Tommy Elrod. I believe the coach for a few reasons. One we looked generally disorganized and sloppy when facing Clawson's Wake teams. Second, there is no obvious connection between Elrod and any former or current BC staffers. That is a relief and it will be even better if Bobby Petrino is forced out after all this mess.
While I am relieved about BC's lack of involvement, I still don't understand Elrod's motive. What could have happened that led to him hurting his employer and Alma Mater? Even if he was gaining financially, there is still only so much you can make on one game. Plus that is a short term gain and if caught it kills your long-term financial opportunities. Elrod will never work in College Sports again.
I do support an ACC investigation. I don't know what they will find, but you have to see how widespread this was. And hopefully when the smoke clears, a couple big coaches will be out and Addazio will have his team ready to compete.
