LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A replica of Louisville's 2013 national championship banner is now hanging above a bar in NuLu.

The was hung Wednesday above the front door of Taj on East Market Street.

The owner, Ken Blackthorn, said he had it made some time ago but never had the chance to use it. So he rolled it out Wednesday, one day after the NCAA stripped U of L of the 2013 national title.

Blackthorn said the replica banner has immediately been popular with people in NuLu.

"They're loving it," he said. "People have been going by honking, stopping, taking pictures of it ... Our Facebook is blowing up. It's great."

Blackthorn said he's not sure how long he will leave the banner hanging on the building.
