Teddy Bridgewater was not only instrumental to getting UofL to the 2013 All State Sugar Bowl, he was also one of the many reasons they pulled off the biggest upset is BCS history. After getting hit illegally on his first drop of the game, Teddy came back and hit Florida right back. He ended the game throwing for 2 touchdowns and 266 yards, and took home the MVP trophy. Bridgewater will be back under center next year, and looking to lead the Cards to an even bigger victory in January.
Last night the world watched as the Louisville Cardinal go into the 2013 Sugar Bowl expecting to watch the #3 Florida Gators run them off the field. That expectation may have been tempered a bit 15 seconds into the game when Terell Floyd intercepted the first pass of the game and took it back for 6. The Cardinals continued to shock the world for the next 4 quarters and stunned the Gators with a 33-23 victory. It marks the biggest upset in BCS history, and the biggest with for this UofL program. Charlie Strong and company proved all the doubters wrong, and now have a lot of momentum going into next year. No one showed respect for the Cards going into the game, but they will now.
Here is the first of several Sugar Bowl wallpapers that I will be posting in the coming days/weeks. I wish I could give every member of the team, staff, and fan base their own wallpaper but I’ll have to settle for choosing a handful. Thanks for looking, and Go Cards!
Bowl season is right around the corner, and this time around Cards fans get to wait until after new years to watch their team get back on the field. In just his 3rd year Charlie Strong is taking his Louisville Cardinal back to a BCS bowl, where he will face the 3rd ranked Florida Gators. Florida is where Charlie made a name for himself, so you know he will have his team ready to play. This is without a doubt the toughest game Strong has had in his time at UofL, and arguably the most important game ever for the football program. No one is giving the Cards a shot, an upset on January 2nd would continue the momentum Strong and company have started.
Hope everyone enjoys the wallpaper. Feel free to share with the world. Thanks for looking, and let me know what you think. I also want to give a special thanks to Brandon Pry (Prudat) for the pictures of the UofL players. Visit his site CardShout and check out his photo galleries as well as his graphic design work.
The first new wallpaper on Covered In Red goes to Mr. Teddy Bridgewater, and rightfully so. Although Teddy didn’t have a great game on Saturday, he kept his composure after an early pick and did enough to move the Cards to 4-0. Bridgewater is starting to get national attention, and if he can put the FIU game behind him that talk will continue to grow.
Instead of making an individual post for each wallpaper that I’ve done over the past couple of years (hundreds), I decided instead to make pages for each category. They are pretty self explanatory, so look around a bit and find one that suits you. Below I’m going to post a few samples from each page, just so you know what to expect.
