Found November 29, 2012 on Bush League Chronicle:
 The Louisville Cardinals wrapped up a share of the Big East title on Thursday after knocking off the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, 20-17, in Piscataway. The win also assuredly punched their ticket to a BCS game by way of a tiebreaker. This coming on the heels of the news on Wednesday which announced that Louisville had accepted an invitation to join the ACC beginning in 2014.Well, as fate would have it, the most likely opponent the Cardinals will face should hail from their future conference in the Orange Bowl. Leave it up to the backup quarterback at Duke, a current member of the ACC, to stir up the pot.Blue Devils signal caller Anthony Boone had this to say following Louisville's win Thursday night:Any football player from Duke should be the last ones in the ACC talking trash. The lowly conference bottomfeeders have failed to produce a winning season since 1994. Perhaps the guys on the gridiron should leave the smack talk to the hardwood athletes.
