Meme Madness: Final Four

In the vortex of large-scale athletic emptiness until football season begins again, we're passing the days here at Rock M Nation with Meme Madness, a 32-entry, bracket style blowout to determine the best theme/inside joke RMN has to offer. The full bracket can be found here.

Today, we feature the first Final Four matchup.

No. 1 Asian Kid vs No. 1 Mr. Coffee

vs

Big Meme Conf. (Misc.)

Meme USA Conf. (Basketball)

As the overall top seed in the tournament, there's no question Asian Kid has a special place in the hearts of all RMN members and readers. 

Asian Kid first began screaming his way into our souls at the beginning of the 2008 football season, when member (now author) ghtd36 dropped his likeness in the Live Thread of Mizzou's game against SEMO. By the end of the game, there was already a question as to whether or not "this Asian boy" could become the official celebratory GIF of Rock M Nation.

As time passed, "this Asian boy" became "Asian Kid," and what a ride it's been since then. His charisma has led to multiple RMN honors, including being part of the Front Page Friday and Rock M Roundtable logos, as well as earning the unique honor of having a spinoff meme, titled "Asian Kid Throughout Mizzou History."

FIRST ROUND: def. No. 8 The Helicopter

SWEET 16: def. No. 5 Good/Bad Leo

SPOETZL FINAL: def. No. 6 Hustle and Flow

Remember 12 months ago when Mizzou basketball was in shambles, Mike Anderson wasn't sure if he'd have a job in mid-2009, and Zaire Taylor was an overlooked transfer from Delaware? You don't need a refresher on where we stand now.

Zaire Taylor's Alec Baldwin-esque propensity for closing in big situations resulted in the highly exalted Mr. Coffee nickname.

Everything you need to know about this meme was described in The Boy's "This Week in Zaire Taylor" post.

As far as the meme is concerned, the question is whether or not Taylor's ability to close extends to his nickname. Will Mr. Coffee "always be closing" in Meme Madness?

FIRST ROUND: def. No. 8 The Boy's Boxing Analogies

SWEET 16: def. No. 5 Unholy Alliance  

CAPITAL FINAL: def. No. 2 DISRESPECT
