When it comes to sports, its fair to say that all sides want a level playing field. So when its discovered that when one team's playbook comes into the hands of their opponents, the playing field is no longer level. In fact there is a breech. This is what the Wake Forest football team discovered when one if its former assistants shared the playbook with U of L coach Lonnie Galloway. U of L Athletics Director Tom Jurich at first downplayed the incident saying that the information was never used. For a school plagued by scandal, it wasn't the best move. U of L has since been fined $25,000 by the ACC, and Galloway suspended for the Citrus Bowl.  The fine is small price for marginalizing virtue. School's stake their reputation on integrity and this is something that is priceless and irreplaceable.
