Louisville President Neeli Bendapudi addressed a letter to the "U of L Family" on Friday that declared U of L would rename the football stadium and remove the name of Papa John's founder John Schnatter from the school's Center for Free Enterprise and its College of Business, effective immediately.

Schnatter resigned from the UofL Board of Trustees Wednesday after admitting that he said the N-word in a conference call created to prevent public relations disasters.

The university has also chose to remove Schnatter's name from the Center for Free Enterprise.

"Mr. Schnatter's derogatory and insensitive comments are not at all reflective of the values of our organization", the Marlins said in a statement.

According to media reports , dozens of security officials entered the plane after it landed and asked other passengers to leave. Mr Sharif has been sentenced to 10 years while his daughter Maryam was given seven years after corruption charges.


Papa John's, which has had founder John Schnatter at the centre of its logo and in TV ads, plans to pull his image from its marketing after reports he used a racial slur.

Many of Papa John's recent ads have not featured Schnatter.

Schnatter's controversial comment came during a role-playing exercise during a May conference call, which itself was organized in the wake of his comments concerning the NFL, and placing blame on the league's national anthem protests for the company's sales, Forbes reported.

"We understand this comes with certain consequences, and we have examined all of those", Bendapudi said, not clarifying what the consequences could be.

In extra-time we showed we are still able with the fatigue to play our game". "We will never forget this". It's unbelievable how many talents we have in sport, basketball, handball, water polo, tennis, for sure.


Bendapudi said during a press conference Friday that she has the support of the board of trustees in making this change.

Thursday, two Louisville players spoke out against the name of the stadium.

While the stadium bore the name of the pizza company, the naming rights deal was with Schnatter himself instead of the company. The sourced told the AP they were "not aware" of plans to change the brand's name. "News reports attributing the use of inappropriate and hurtful language to me during a media training session regarding race are true", he said in a statement released by Papa John's. But even though it's the company's name on the stadium, "It is a feeling this time that there is too much hurt around it, and the company understands it's a hard decision".
