Oregon St. terminates sponsorship deal with Papa John's

From the “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?” department comes word that Oregon State is the latest school which has severed its business relationship with Papa John’s.
Here is the official statement from Oregon State's athletic department, courtesy of John Canzano.


The school joins Kentucky and Louisville as schools that have severed ties with the company, following news that its founder, John Schnatter, had dropped the n-bomb during a conference call regarding racial sensitivity issues. 
Louisville, the school most notably associated with Schnatter and Papa Johns, ended its sponsorship agreement with the company last week. That included changing the name of Papa John’s Stadium to Cardinal Stadium.
