Saturday night, a video of Chris Mack celebrating his Louisville Cardinals’ win over Kentucky back in December hit the internet. If you have yet to see the video, take a gander.

KSR obtained the video anonymously.
This video inevitably adds to the plot of the Kentucky/Louisville basketball rivalry off the court, but now this plot thickens a little bit.
According to the Courier-Journal, Troy Hanke, an executive board member of the Mack Family Foundation and CFO of B.F. South Inc., tweeted today that he was the one who filmed the video and sent it to Kenny Payne as a joke. The tweet where Hanke owns up to the video has since been deleted.
We should get more answers on Monday; Louisville Athletic Director Vince Tyra told Tim Sullivan of the Courier-Journal that he has seen the video and will let Chris Mack handle it at his Monday press conference.
