How did this not hit me until now? The talk of a new name for Cardinal Stadium hasn't really been bubbling under, but the choice of Muhammad Ali makes total sense. 

It's his hometown, it's his final resting place, and he's not only a Louisville icon, he's a Kentucky icon.

He was also an avid Cardinal fan...

Again, there's been no official statement on whether the stadium will be renamed, but I'd say Ali's case is hard to beat.
