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)
Kevin Ware was thrown into the national spotlight for reasons you all already know. This year, he has been far from it. He was back on the court faster than most expected this year, but has since be sidelined again. There has been talk of him redshirting, and fans have even discussed a possible transfer (mostly UK fans). When healthy, Ware is a dynamic scorer with the length and quickness to defend multiple positions. He is great in the press because of his length, and has been a proven shooter. If redshirting Ware is best for him, he will be back next year better than ever. I look forward to seeing him back on court, this year or next.
I know it’s a little late in the season to put up some schedule wallpapers, but, I’m putting up some schedule wallpapers. There is 1 for most every player (hope to add a couple more when photos become available), and then just a general wallpaper using the “Destination Dallas” graphic I created (iPhone and desktop). So, choose your favorite player (if you can choose) and represent them on your desktop while keeping up with who’s next up for the Cards. Thanks 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.
There has been a lot of talk about Kevin Ware this offseason, and from the feedback I’ve heard from the red/white scrimmage, it is well deserved. Ware has always had the athleticism to make an impact, but his suspect decision making and ball handling held him back last year. That appears to be in the past, and Kevin is expected to make an impact for the number 2 ranked Cardinals this year.
I’ve done a couple wallpaper with Dieng blocking the moon, and they have gone over well, so I thought I would put a new twist on it. The picture of Ware was taken by Matt Wickman from Hell In The Hall, I hope to use many more of his pictures in the future. Take a second to check out his work, you won’t be disappointed.
