No idea what this will be called (Lions Bowl? Motor City Bowl Part Deux?), but the Pizza Bowl is on the way out.
Detroit Lions expected to start new bowl in 2014, likely B1G vs. ACC, at Ford Field sources told @espn. Would eliminate Little Caesars Bowl— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) May 21, 2013
Update: The Pizza Bowl folks don't seem like they will go quietly into that good bowl night just yet. They are looking at moving the game to Comerica Park.
Yes. I realize that it is still May.
Yes. May is still somewhat far from September.
Yes. I am a bit psychotic for working on wallpapers for the upcoming season so...early.
Yes. I'm expecting my second child in July and will most likely lose all free-time and sleep I currently enjoy.
That being said, I am really excited about this year's Under the Lights game and all the wonderful wallpaper ideas I have for this year's edition. Because of "Yes" #4, I am trying to get as much work done early as I can. Naturally, I will have to do some work DURING the season, but I'm hopeful I'll be AT the ND game this year, and thus will not have time for my normal insomniac-like last-minute wallpaper post. So there you have it - my full justification for posting this wallpaper now.
Actually, this wallpaper was intended as more of a "poster" feel. You could slide an Adidas logo quite nicely onto it, IMHO, and it could pass for part of their promotional material. I liked the idea, even if it is predictable, and I think it turned out pretty well. Let me know what you think. The next UTL2 wallpaper I work on will most likely feature a chicken. Just sayin'.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. As always, a mobile version will follow within the next few days.
EDIT: Fixed the blocky font. Man, I really need to proof my work more closely.
EDIT 2: Added two mobile designs.

5 star DT Eddie Vanderdoes is rumored to not be enrolling at Notre Dame:
This continues the trend over the last 4 years or so where some of the top recruits at Notre Dame have either never made it onto campus or transferred within a year:
2013: 5 star Eddie Vanderdoes
2012: 5 star QB Gunner Kiel, 5 star CB Ronald Darby, 4 star WR Davonte Neal, 4 star CB Tee Shepard, 4 star WR Deontay Greenberry, 4 star OL Taylor Decker, 4 star WR Justin Ferguson
2011: 5 star DE Aaron Lynch
2010: 5 star DE Chris Martin, 4 star OL Matt James, 4 star RB Giovani Bernard, 4 star DE Blake Lueders
2009: 4 star WR Shaquelle Evans
Shane has yet to even suit up for Michigan and his signature is apparently already worth $250, although I doubt the guy will get that.
I know there are many video game players on the board. We also know the many complaints of our fair leader about the current NCAA Football game (damn anti-Chris Graham super linebackers with their great hands and leaping ability). Here's your chance for change. This company has a kickstarter to create a new college football video game to launch prior to the 2014 season. Check out the link and watch the video to see how this one will be different. For those that don't know, Austin is a center for video game production. I have questions about the ability to get the NCAA licensing, but I do know this is a legit program.
