Forget about the gator that's on acid or that the best players they could get to appear on it are John Brantley and William Green, your eyes are immediately drawn to the lunatic in the center shooting death lasers through your soul. This poster gave birth to many jokes. It was my inspiration for the Muschamp Intensity Meter. And it became the inspiration for a Tumblr page created by Bruce Floyd. Of all the entries in this tournment, this was the truest of all the memes.
Some of you probably thought to yourself, "Some of these aren't memes. Why are you calling it a meme tournament, you dumb shit?" Well, first of all, The 2011-12 Florida Gators Stuff That Made Us Laugh And Stories That Made Us Argue And Plays That Made Us Jump Out Of Our Seat And Shout 'HOLY SHIT DID YOU SEE THAT?' Tournament didn't quite roll off the tongue. Second of all, shut the fuck up. I'll call it what I want because it's my fucking blog.
Muschamp Stare, however, was the memeiest of all the memes and you cannot argue that. It won this tournament rightfully so. Let's take a look back at Muschamp Stare's dominating run with the exception of one close call, but all champions endure one nail biter on their way to greatness.
First Round: Defeated 8) True Freshman QBs, 98% to 2%
Sweet Sixteen: Defeated 4) FREE GILLY, 85% to 15%
Elite Eight: Defeated 3) Patric Young's block & dunk vs. FSU, 64% to 36%
Final Four: Defeated 1) What's a Padawan? by one vote, 51% to 49%
Championship: Defeated 1) I doodoo, then listen to Katy Perry, 61% to 39%
Congratulations Muschamp Stare and Bruce Floyd on the well deserved victory! I have nothing to give you, except the recognition being awarded in this post that will be read by TENS of people.
I want to thank everyone who voted, especially Alligator Army and Rowdy Town Mayor for helping spread the word.
This is the spot where I was going to include a video montage of all the memes set to "One Shining Moment", but as you can see, that didn't happen, so you'll just have to use your imagination.
