So I decided to switch gears a little for this one. After watching Teddy’s heroics at the end of his 2nd preseason game, I thought it was time for a Teddy Vikings wallpaper. So… here it is. I combine the UofL logo with the Vikings logo, which I think turned out kind of cool. Hope you enjoy. I will be back with UofL football wallpapers soon.
So I decided to take a break from the schedule wallpapers (don’t worry, there will be more) to bring you something a little different. I want to do a wallpaper with players from each position, starting with the running backs. I also hope to do receivers, quarter backs, DB’s/safety’s, O-Line, and D-Line. A lot of those will be dependent on me finding quality images to use, which was even a challenge with the running backs. This wallpaper features Michael Dyer, Dominique Brown, Corvin Lamb, and Brandon Radcliff. I really wanted to have LJ Scott featured too, I just couldn’t find a picture of him in his UofL jersey that would work. Hope you enjoy the wallpaper, and there will be more soon. I may alternate between schedule wallpapers and position wallpapers. I will also try to get to the requests that I’ve been getting. Thank for looking, and go Cards!
So, I know that some people don’t like to have players as their background. For some people it’s because it makes their desktop too crowded. Other’s just don’t like to decide on a player, and would rather rep the team as a whole. For those people, I created another football schedule wallpaper, this time featuring the logo rather than players. The wallpaper features the large Cardinal logo in the middle, with all of the opponent logos and game dates at the bottom. This leaves a little more room for your icons, while still give you the information and allowing you to red your Cards.
Well, it’s been a while since I’ve posted a new UofL design (I feel like I say that every time I post one these days), but here is the first football schedule wallpaper of the season. It was hard to decide who to feature in the design, with so many talented players coming back, but ultimately I decided on Will Gardner, DeVante Parker, Gerald Christian, Lorenzo Mauldin, and Terell Floyd. If you look closely at “LOUISVILLE CARDINALS” you’ll see that several other players are featured in the design, just in a lesser manner. Below you’ll obviously see the schedule, featuring the helmet for each opposing team. The dates in white are home games, red are away.
I plan on doing at least a few more schedule wallpaper before the season kicks off, so let me know who you would like featured on the next wallpaper. Thanks for looking, more to come soon.
Run it back is a phrase known around cardnation, and soon to be known around the entire sports world. Made popular by Big Time Yurts (be sure to check our their gear if you haven’t already), “Run It Back” has become the theme for the remainder of the season. Here is a wallpaper, featuring almost the whole team, to help to celebrate the madness. I apologize for not having Dillon Avare or David Levitch on the wallpaper. If anyone can find a high res version of them (as close to full body as possible) let me know and I’ll add them into the mix. Thanks for looking, and thanks to anyone that provided pictures (unknowingly) for this wallpaper. (I know that Matt Wickham took several, be sure to check his work out)
The Cardinals just finished up senior day in style. All of the seniors contributed huge today, as the team put up it’s most impressive performance to date. It’s a little late, but here is my wallpaper dedicated to the seniors. I won’t go into detail about each, because I don’t want to tear up, but enjoy the wallpaper.
For those of you that don’t know, I’m in intern with the Kentucky Xtreme this season. The Xtreme is a professional indoor football team that has a lot of ties to the Louisville area. Among those ties is player/owner Mario Urrutia. After a few years in the NFL and one in the AFL, Mario decided to come back to Louisville and be part of the Xtreme.
Wayne Blackshear was a huge name coming out of high school. He was Mr. Basketball in the state of Illinois (beating out Anthony Davis), a McDonald’s All-American, and a list of other accolades. Injuries, starting during the McD’s game, have certainly hindered Blackshear’s production at UofL leading up to this season. All signs pointing to Wayne being healthy coming into this season, and fans were excited to see what he could do at 100%. This season it hasn’t been injuries that has held Blackshear back, it’s been foul trouble. When he is on the court, he can ball. Problem is, he hasn’t been on the court much due to early (and often) foul trouble. Pitino decided to bring Wayne off the bench tonight against Houston, and he responded with a career night. Here’s to hoping Blackshear can build off of his performance tonight, and continue the solid play.
Tom Jurich is arguably (if you want to argue for arguing sake) the best athletic director in the country. He has built the University of Louisville athletic program up in every regard, and every sport. He has made great hire after great hire, expanded facilities, and won on every level. He has a tough task ahead of him with hiring the next football coach at UofL but, as the wallpaper says, in time we trust. (thanks to Big Time Yurts for the expression. Check them out if you want awesome Cards gear).
