The Meme Madness bracket charges into the second round as half of our iconic moments were voted off the board. The people spoke decisively; every matchup was decided by at least 10 percentage points.
While three No. 1 seeds have bowed out of the NCAA Tournament, the top seeds in Meme Madness are still alive. However, there were three upsets in the Sweet 16, including a decisive 6-over-3 battle in the Players & Coaches Region. Now, eight moments remain in the quest for meme supremacy. The Michigan surrender cobra, Hugh Freeze’s hospital bed and Urban Meyer’s golf cart pizza are among the powerhouses still standing to fight another day.
Every year, dozens of images quickly become cultural touchstones in the sport by going viral on social media and in countless group chats. However, there are a select few that survive longer and permanently enter the college football universe.
Now, we want you to help pick the best.
In order to narrow it down, our staff curated 16 memorable memes from the Twitter era and separated them into two regions: Fans, and Coaches & Players. The bracket includes everything from Heisman Trophy winners and disgruntled fans to unforgettable coaching reactions. But more than anything, it includes the moments that makes college football so unique.
See the updated bracket and vote in the Elite Eight round of Meme Madness below.
