It's Selection Sunday for Meme Madness here at RMN! The seed selections are listed below with a small bit of analysis. Later today, we'll reveal the official bracket, which matches the memes up in four eight-entry regionals.
Number 1 Seeds
Analysis: Asian Kid is the clear powerhouse in the tournament. While Thrust Nunchuk Upward and Mr. Coffee were very secure as No. 1 seeds, Bacon slides in as the final top seed.
Number 2 Seeds
Analysis: All four No. 2 seeds have the capacity to win the whole thing. The "ZouDave's sister" meme gets a bump for dominating a weak conference.
Number 3 Seeds
Analysis: Despite not being Mizzou-related, the Hot Tub meme carries serious weight around RMN. Kimmeh! gets a No. 3 seed thanks to a late charge.
Number 4 Seeds
Analysis: The four-seeds are very heavy with football nicknames. Chase Daniel nicknames alone secure half of the available No. 4 seeds.
Number 5 Seeds
Analysis: Since two memes from the same conference can't face each other in the first round, MotherRucker gets screwed out of a deserved No. 5 spot to make it easier to avoid matching up with one of the three No. 4 seeds from its same conference. UribeAuction's Simpsons' references are the beneficiary.
Number 6 Seeds
Analysis: One meme from each conference at the No. 6 spots.
Number 7 Seeds
Analysis: Watch out for Victory Whiskey in a 2 vs. 7 upset. The Boy's cat overcomes weak strength of schedule with a strong end of the season.
Number 8 Seeds
Analysis: No way in hell there's a 1 vs. 8 upset.
