Meme Madness: Schlafly Regional First Round

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 3 v. 6 matchup in the Schlafly Regional.

No. 3 TruFlair vs No. 6 rptgwb's love of Pig Brown


Big Meme Conf. (Misc.)

Meme Coast Conf. (User-specific)

Give another hat tip to ghtd36, whose production on the meme front is congruous to Jeremy Maclin's all-purpose yardage production.

Several RMN members, including myself and leghumpingjihadkiller took to the initial meme, which was little more than a picture of Ric Flair accompanied with a post that states "WOOOOOOOOOO!!!"

But leave it to ghtd36 to escalate things even further.

Four-plus months ago, a FanShot appeared on Rock M Nation, bearing the tag "Our mascot will put you in a figure-four leglock." And just like that, the TruFlair was born.

Since that epic day, TruFlair has been with us through the best of times. And, per part of the meme, he always gives us a "WOOOOO!"

Let's face it - we all have our random Mizzou players of the past with whom we developed extreme attachment.

Mine just happens to by Pig Brown.

So I have a thing for fiery defensive leaders? So I have a thing for seeing 100-yard fumble returns? So I think Pinkel breaking his injured player travel rule before the Colorado game was awesome?

Big whoop. Wanna fight about it?

Last summer, I made my case for Pig in the Mizzou 25 competition, helping will my man to a Spider Burke region title and a "certainly no shame in losing" loss to Chase Daniel in the Final Four.

If any of the six seeds have the heart to make a Cinderella run, don't bet against the power of Pig. And, if it does happen, I'll love him even more for it.
