Louisville stripped Papa John from its football stadium's name and renamed it Cardinal Stadium, the university announced Friday.

"Papa" John Schnatter admitted to racially slurring black people during an internal conference call earlier this week. Not only will Papa John lose the naming rights to the stadium, the university will also take his name off the Center for Free Enterprise inside the business school.

The Papa resigned from his cheese-covered cardboard business Thursday.
