Minnesota Wallpaper

Submitted by Blue Indy on September 26th, 2011 at 2:25 PM

So this is it... my first diary! Thanks to those of you who requested that I get the points necessary to post this :-).

EDIT: Since photobucket was resizing my images, I changed the links over to a new site. This will look a LOT better on your monitor!

When I saw that monuMental wouldn't be posting his amazing weekly wallpapers this season, I took it upon myself to carry the torch until his triumphant return. He has since stated that he'll be creating rivalry wallpapers, so I'll take a break on those weeks. Since I've been hijacking posts to upload my wallpapers, here's a review of the ones I've created so far for those of you who've missed them:

Western Michigan "Denard vs Broncos"


Eastern Michigan "Eagle Dove"


San Diego State "Aztec Art"


...which brings us to this week's wallpaper, Minnesota's "Brown Jug Kool-Aid"



I do sort of wish that my first diary featured a better wallpaper, but I was having a difficult time adding in a background and went with the minimilistic "monuMental's penn state" look. I've noticed a lot of people commenting on the resemblance of our current 4-0 season to those of the last couple of years. Others, however, have commented on the relative down year the B1G is having and how we have a much better chance of steam-rolling through the conference than in recent years. I'm "cautiously optimistic" myself and thought we could all enjoy a big ol' jug of Kool-Aid to celebrate our success so far. Enjoy!

PS: Here's a link to my wallpaper album, if you or I miss a posting on Monday.

Welcome to the diary club.  Glad you are able to add your .02 every now and then.  I typically don't get wallpaper done till the end of the week s oit is nice to have something early.  Good job.

you have 4:3 and 16:9, but are you able to do a full raw version?  the first couple weeks i think had them and i was using these for the menus of my blu-ray versions of the games and would love the higher resolution so i don't end up with blurry background images.

thanks and keep up the good work

yeah if possible I would love atleast 720p resolution on the wide, if not 1080p, but if your source images aren't that good I fully understand the lower res.

Love the work btw.

You hit it on the head... my source images mostly come from google images as I don't subscribe to any of the pay-for-image sites... I'll do my best to find higher res images going forward... that's the upside to monuMental creating a lot of his own stuff from scratch- he can create the output resolution as well!

and eventually ended up posting to a hotmail skydrive account...  It downsizes by default, but you can select full resolution images if you desire.

Thanks for the time and effort you put into these!

This wallpaper is good enough to replace my "Denard-Soaring-Like-An-Eagle-In-Lewans-Hands-After-The-Roundtree-Touchdown-Under-The-Lights" picture as my background. Well done, sir!
