Boston College GIF of the Year: BEST OF THE BEST

You never GIF me your money

NCAA Football: Boston College at Clemson Joshua S. Kelly-USA TODAY Sports

That’s it, ring the bell, it’s all over! A heartfelt congratulations to the 2017 Boston College GIF of the Year Champion, Caitrin Orr!

Caitrin Lonergan’s Wonder Woman goal against UConn was unquestionably the BC hockey goal of the year, and today it has earned the prestigious title of GREATEST BOSTON COLLEGE GIF OF 2017 OF ALL TIME thanks to you, the Boston College fans.

Here’s a link to the tournament hub where you can look back on your favorite matchups of the past year, as well as one last look at the final, completed bracket:

But that’s not quite the end of the road for the masterpiece of a GIF that is “Caitrin Orr.” While she’s been immortalized in the Boston College GIF Hall of Fame for all eternity, there’s still the final matter of our annual vote for BEST OF THE BEST.

Last year’s Best Of The Best vote saw Johnny Gaudreau’s “The Goal” retain its title as GREATEST BOSTON COLLEGE GIF EVER OF ALL TIME in a surprisingly close vote against BC football’s “No Option.”

Will it retain its spot atop the GIF world? Only you can decide!

2017 Tournament Winner: Caitrin Orr

It’s been an incredible run to the championship for Caitrin Lonergan’s incredible tally against UConn. Is this GIF good enough to take over as THE GREATEST GIF EVER OF ALL TIME?

2012 Tournament Winner: The Goal

We’re not so different, you and I. Gaudreau and Lonergan had remarkably similar goals to earn themselves their respective titles. But only one can be the best — can Johnny Gaudreau’s GIF from the 2012 NCAA championship game keep its spot atop the GIF universe?

As always, you will have 24 hours to vote, with the 2017 BEST OF THE BEST ballot closing at 9am EDT on Friday.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our annual BC GIF of the Year tournament! We really enjoy putting it together, and hope you enjoyed it as well. It’s a great way to look back on the best moments of the past Boston College season as we work our way through the summer doldrums.

The 2017-2018 academic year is almost upon us, so here’s hoping we get a great year of Boston College moments for next year’s tournament!
