TCR GIF Tournament: Miscellaneous Region

Let’s wrap up the first round of the TCR GIF tourney.

We’ve reached the final matchups of the first round as we zoom in on the lower right region of our 32-GIF bracket.

This is the region full of GIFs that we couldn’t place in any of the other regions.

Block I vs. Orange Krush

Block I

Who doesn’t love a good chug off? The Block I card stunts are one of the oldest, best and most underrated traditions in college sports. This particular stunt is one of their best and one of everyone’s favorites.

Orange Krush

Well... we aren’t exactly sure what this is. Perhaps it’s a new form of flirting or a new celebratory dance made famous in some video game. Or maybe it’s just a classic boop. Everyone loves a good boop.

Baseball’s Shower vs. Kipper’s Celebration

Baseball’s Shower

There’s a lot going on here. Illinois Baseball Head Coach Dan Hartleb gets hot with the showers during a postgame interview. Hartleb is looking stoic as ever and doesn’t see it coming. The sound guy tried to save the equipment but to no avail. And you can briefly see the anger and disgust in his face through his sunglasses. Well done.

Kipper’s Celebration

Kipper has one of the bigger personalities on the hoops squad and he isn’t afraid to show it. Nichols is from Ohio and is a huge Cavs and LeBron fan, and here he is paying homage to the great JR Smith by mimicking a celebration commonly utilized by the Cleveland guard. And he absolutely nails it.

Corso Chooses Illini vs. Mr. President

Corso Chooses Illini

This a classic and a personal favorite. Lee Corso chooses the Illini in his famous College Gamesay shtick where he reveals his pick for the premier game by donning the mascot head of his team of choice. This GIF is wonderful because people are shocked to see there was ever a time where Illinois would be featured on Gameday, and even Corso looks surprised that he’s choosing the Illini. When there’s a shocking and rare bit of happy news, this GIF floods Illini Twitter.

Mr. President

Very Patriotic. Gimel President transferred from Auburn to play his senior season at Illinois and actually put up some decent stats on the Illini defensive line. However, his last name and this GIF may be his most memorable moments for

This Is Fine vs. Bruce’s Jarling’s

This Is Fine

The “This Is Fine” GIF doesn’t have any direct Illini connections, but Illini fans have basically adopted it as their own. At this point this is just the natural state of Illinois sports. It could have basically been used at any moment over the last 10 years. You’d be hard pressed to find a group of people who have used this GIF more than Illini fans.

Bruce’s Jarling’s

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this GIF is worth a million. Bruce was part of a group that helped save the famous Jarling’s Custard Cup in Champaign. The man loves his custard. There’s really nothing else to say. This is pure art.

This is a Final Four caliber matchup.
