Boston College GIF of the Year: Hexadecafinals, Matchup #1

It's here! The GIF tournament is here!

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to the most important thing on the internet: BCI's 3nd Annual GIF of the Year tournament! This year, for the first time ever, we've doubled the tournament field to a whopping 32 entries. So naturally, this is going to take a while. And that's good! Because the offseason is too long anyway.

A couple of background notes:

--The tournament will run Monday through Thursday each week until a champion is crowned, with each matchup dropping at 9am each morning.

--We will unveil one matchup per day.

--Voting will close 24 hours after the original post, which means that Thursday matchups will end at 9am on Friday even though there won't be another matchup until Monday.

--A word on stuffing the ballot: D. B. A. D. Voting from more than one device is fine. Voting 1000x on one computer is not fine. You know who you are.

--The matchups were set up randomly; FA Cup style with no seeding.

--Entrants were taken from the Nominations post from last week. The only requirement is that the GIF has to be at least tangentially related to BC.

--The voting criteria is literally anything you want it to be.

And that's pretty much it. So let's rock and roll.

I'm partial to this one if only because he says my name in the Youtube video. Squeeeee!

NCSU Comedy Of Errors:

This one has perhaps a bit of an unfair advantage because it has its own theme music. All I can think of while watching that is "OH MY GOD WILL SOMEONE JUST TACKLE THEM??"

The tournament has funally begun! Voting begins now. You have 24 hours.
