Louisville president Neeli Bendapudi announced Friday the school will strip the Papa John’s name from its football stadium, renaming it Cardinal Stadium.
John Schnatter, the pizza chain founder, admitted earlier this week that he used the N-word during an internal conference call. Since then, the fallout has been swift: Schnatter resigned from the school’s board of trustees and as Papa John’s chairman. Not only will the Papa John’s name come off the football stadium, Bendapudi also said the school would take Schatter’s name off the Center for Free Enterprise inside the business school. The changes are effective immediately.
Some football players tweeted on Thursday they wanted to see the Papa John’s name removed from the stadium. http://www.cavaliersproshop.com/George_Hill_Jersey Bendapudi met with the football team after the announcement, and she told the players they had her full support.
I do believe our voice was heard and we made a huge impact on this city and the university so I’m just proud of my guys, running back Trey Smith said.
Louisville coach Bobby Petrino said in a statement that the school made the correct decision to rename the stadium.
The display will now feature Tebow and the other five members of the program’s ring Austin Corbett Jersey of honor: linebacker Wilber Marshall, running back Emmitt Smith, 1966 Heisman winner and famed coach Steve Spurrier, 1996 Heisman winner Danny Wuerffel and defensive end Jack Youngblood.
Tebow went 35-6 in four seasons (2006-09) at Florida, finishing with an SEC-record 170.8 career pass efficiency http://www.brownsnflofficials.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_AUSTIN_CORBETT_JERSEY.html rating. He left college with 28 school records, 14 conference marks and five NCAA records.
Part of his lack of success in pinstripes is a result of the change in ballpark, moving to New York. For his career, he has managed a 3.50 ERA and .235 BAA at Oakland Coliseum and a dismal 6.78 ERA and .281 BAA at Yankee Stadium. His home/road splits for 2018 reflect his trouble in the George Hill Authentic Jersey Bronx — 8.25 ERA, .329 BAA. While his road numbers are far from ideal, they are at least somewhat acceptable from a No. 5 starting pitcher in fantasy — 4.07 ERA, .247 BAA.
I think there’s a combination of issues at play here. One of the main differences in Gray’s success (or lack thereof) at home is the amount of foul territory to be found. In Gray’s best season (2015), his defense reached double-digits in terms of foul popups caught when he was on the mound. So far this season, that number stands at only three.
