When it comes to worrying about what others think, Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino falls under the category of not giving two shits. Keep in mind this is a coach that signed off on touchdown passes in the third and fourth quarters of last week's 70-14 win over Charlotte. Heading into tonight's game against Syracuse, Petrino reportedly reached out to the ACC to make sure the Orange's up-tempo offense was going to

“The chains have to be set,” Petrino said Wednesday. “You’ve got to let the chains get down and be set before they can snap the ball again, and there were a couple times in that game where they didn’t get set. So we have talked to the conference office, and that’s part of the officials’ responsibility to make sure the chains are set before they let the ball be snapped.”
"We’ve got to see if all of that’s legal, because there’s a few times they’re snapping the ball and the down markers haven’t even been moved yet," Petrino said on Monday. "So we do need to check into that and see how that works."
