God's GIF to mankind

We've come to the end of the octofinals, and only the strongest GIFs have shown what it takes to stay alive in the bracket. To be sure, there were some very good entrants that have made early exits, such as Castonzo's touchdown dance in the first round and a couple of the better GIFs in the second.

Yesterday's matchup was an example of that. Matt O'Connor's screwup in the national championship game had to go up against Sherman Alston, and Sherman Alston prevailed. Sherm will have a quarterfinal matchup against today's winner.

Here are the final two GIFs of the second round.

Daley Upsets Duke

Daley's deeeep three pointer in the waning seconds against Duke came up with a big win in round one. She took a 59-41 win over Ryan Fitzgerald's beauty of a goal to advance.

Tic Tac Toe

Adam Gilmour's finisher barely scraped by in the first round, taking the win over the empty net celebration over BU by a 51-49 tally -- just three individual votes. Hockey GIF on Hockey GIF crime.

Here is the updated bracket:

You have 24 hours to vote. We'll be back at you on Monday with the quarterfinals.
