I had a request to put together a couple of iPhone schedule wallpaper for football season, so I did. I used previous designs that people seemed to like, and added the schedule to them. This should make it easy to keep up with who is next for Louisville Football. Dates in red are home games, white are away games.
“”The University of Louisville is on a collision course with the national championship. The only variable is time.” We’ve all heard the quote from former coach Howard Schnellenberger, and now we are living in that time. Of course, no one knows if we are going to win a National Championship this year, but it is the best chance we’ve ever had. When Schnelly started talking about a national championship coming to Louisville, I’m not sure that anyone actually believed him. Now, although the odds are still against us, it is within reach.
I created this wallpaper, and with some help from my followers on twitter, finalized a pretty sweet design (in my opinion). It features an old style clock with the hands getting close to “now,” representing “The Time Is Now.” There are a few somewhat subtle nods to UofL/Louisville; there is a map of Kentucky, the logo, the quote, and Howard Schnellenberger in the background of the image. On the clock, you’ll see the logo cut out of the hands and an old map of Louisville in the background of the clock. This is a little different from most of my wallpapers, or other sports wallpapers, but I hope everyone likes it.
Calvin Pyror is a name that burst onto the radar of Louisville fans everywhere his freshman year and didn’t slow down for the sophomore campaign. He started last season by forcing 2 fumbles in the season opener, and finished it with 100 tackles on the season. If Pryor can keep the progress going, he is going to be a nightmare for opposing teams.
We are less than a month away from the kickoff of the 2013 football season, so I thought it was about time to start pushing out some football wallpapers. Some people have requested a schedule wallpaper, which is what this project started out as. I like the wallpaper with the simple schedule, but I think it is also strong enough to use without it. I also liked the design enough to turn it into an iPhone wallpaper. The phrase “Earn It” is apparently the philosophy of the team this year, as many players and coaches were wearing wristbands with the slogan. Hope you enjoy the wallpapers, there will be more to come before the season kicks off. Thanks as always for the support.
There is a lot to be excited about as a UofL fan, much of which has to do with the fast approaching football season. A lot of returning players are getting preseason hype, and we expect them to live up to it. DeVante Parker is returning from a big Sophomore year. He will likely have a bigger role in the offense this year, which is impressive consider it seemed that every time he caught a pass last year he was in the end zone. Lorenzo Mauldin is an anchor for our defense, and this year should be a big one for Mr. Mauldin. With studs like this on both sides of the ball, it should be a great year for Louisville football. There is also a new iPhone wallpaper, featuring the silhouette of a couple football Cards.
Happy 4th of July to everyone! With the rain keeping me, and I’m guessing most of Louisville, inside I thought it would be a good time to put together another wallpaper. This one is pretty self explanatory. UofL+America is a pretty sweet combo if you ask me. This is a wallpaper you can use all year to show people that you love the University of Louisville, and well as ‘Merica. Thanks for looking.
As we all (should) know, this has been an unbelievable year for the University Of Louisville Cardinals. I started with a win in the Sugar Bowl and ended with a basketball national championship and a trip to the College World Series, with a lot of great moments in between. I have been a Cards fan for all of my 24 years, and this will be one I will never forget. From watching the Sugar Bowl at a friends house, to being in Atlanta for the National Championship game, it was a great year to be a UofL fan. To commemorate this year I decided to make a “Year Of The Cardinal” wallpaper, which I hope does the year an ounce of the respect it deserves. I know I may have left some of the accomplishments off, I just touched on the big ones. If you have any other feats that made this such a great year, please feel free to share and I’ll add them to the design. Thanks as always for looking.
It has been almost a week, and it still hasn’t set in. I was there, I saw it happen, and it still isn’t real yet. On Monday I didn’t only get to see my beloved Cardinals win the first National Championship of my life time, I got to live it. I had to take some time off to let everything hit, and it still hasn’t done that. I’ve watched the replay, I’ve watched endless highlights, I still get chills every time Trezl throws down the oop. Maybe this time next year it will all feel like real life.
Enough with the sappy stuff, lets move on to the wallpapers. I decided to go through a make a wallpaper for each player (that saw action in the tourney) with a similar theme. I would have liked to have included everyone, as I know they all played a roll, but I couldn’t find pictures of some of the guys. This is the first of many wallpapers I will be posting celebrating our 3rd Title, so stay tuned for the rest.
The world watched on Sunday as the Louisville Cardinal made another stop on the revenge tour to play the Duke Blue Devils. Basketball fans across the country tuned in hoping to see another great match up between the 2 power houses, with the winning earning a sport in Atlanta for the FInal Four. Those fans saw more than just a basketball game, they saw a group of young men that are more than a basketball team. In the 1st half Kevin Ware went down with a horrific injury, the worst that I’ve seen in sports, but it was what happened following the injury that deserves the headlines.
Moments after watching their teammate, their brother, break his leg the Louisville Cardinals had 2 choices; get distracted and lose the game or win for Kevin Ware. Ware called the team over and told them to win. Don’t worry about him, but win the game. Tears were dried away, emotions checked, and the remaining Cardinals did what Kevin said, they won the game. We have all read countless stories recapping the events of that day, but the boys have work to do for Ware. We have a few days before we are back on the court, and hopefully this can adorn your background leading up to the big game. And hopefully, we can Win 4 Ware.
Stephan Van Treese is a name that a lot of people outside of the UofL fan base may not know, but he is playing a big roll in the teams recent success. Van Treese was set the transfer over the off season but things worked out and he was able to stay, he is making the most of the opportunity. He has provided a spark off the bench, and is seemingly around the ball on every miss. He isn’t a guy that is going to fill up the stat sheet, but he brings more to the table than what shows up on the box score. I think we can all agree that SVT has become a fan favorite, and rightfully so. I haven’t done many wallpaper of Mr. Van Treese over the years, so here is a much deserved wallpaper.
And, shout out to Brandon Pry at CardShout.com for the picture. He always provides me with the highest quality images to use, and he does amazing design work himself. Be sure to check him out.
