U of L players want renaming of Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium

The Courier Journal reports two current University of Louisville players want to change the name of Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Jaylen Smith and Seth Dawkins have both said on their Twitter accounts the school should change the stadium name following racial comments made by Papa John’s Pizza founder John Schnatter during a conference call.

U of L coach Bobby Petrino has not commented and the school says there has been no substantive discussions about changing the stadium name.
