Hello, and welcome to the first-ever TCR GIF Tournament. Over the next two weeks we’ll be running a single-elimination 32-GIF bracket with some of the best Illinois-themed GIFs on the Internet, which were carefully selected by your responses on Twitter and our staff (with a slight emphasis on Tim Beckman content)!
The first-ever TCR GIF Tournament begins Monday.— The Champaign Room (@Champaign_Room) June 15, 2018

If you don’t see one of your favorite Illini GIFs over the next two weeks (*clears throat* Matic setting a screen for.... no one.), we’ll do this again in the future, with a whole new set of GIFs!
Remember how we do these tournaments? Of course you do! We ran our Greatest Illini Men’s Basketball Player Ever Tournament back in March!
Our 32 GIFs were separated into four regions: Coaches, Players, Games and Miscellaneous. Here’s the schedule!
Tuesday, June 19: Coaches Region
Wednesday, June 20: Players Region
Thursday, June 21: Game Region
Friday, June 22: Miscellaneous Region
Monday, June 25: Sweet 16
Tuesday, June 26: Sweet 16
Wednesday, June 27: Elite 8
Thursday, June 28: Final 4
Friday, June 29: THE GIF CHAMPIONSHIP
The article with the polls and GIFs will be released at 9:00 a.m. every day during the tournament and polls will be open for 24 hours. The winning GIF will become the official GIF of TCR™️.
If you’re excited for this, then make sure to participate over the next two weeks! If you’re not excited, I’m sorry.
Before revealing the bracket, we have one poll question for you.
How do you pronounce GIF?
This poll is closed
GIF (like ‘gift’)
JIFF (like the peanut butter)
Here’s your bracket! Get ready for some GIFs!
