Current & Future UofL Football Players Aren’t On Board With Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium

Two current Louisville football players and one future Cardinal used their social media platforms to react to the recent news surrounding surrounding John Schnatter.

The Papa John’s founder used the N-word during a conference call and resigned Wednesday as a University of Louisville board of trustee member as well as Chairman of the Board with the company he created.

With the Louisville Cardinal football stadium being named after a company that was founded by someone who is now perceived as a racist, this puts UofL in a tough spot.

Louisville receivers Seth Dawkins and Jaylen Smith made it quite clear that they want the name of the stadium to be changed.

Louisville native and commit Aidan Robbins feels the same.

Earlier this afternoon UofL president Neeli Bendapudi said she hadn’t reviewed changing the name of the stadium, but I’d say that will soon happen.

Unfortunately, Schnatter’s deal with UofL is a little more complicated than most realized.
