Is there a way to hide the main "title" and "description" boxes for a custom post?

I have a custom post with a large meta box. I won't be using the regular title and description so I would like to either hide it or collapse it so the user won't have to scroll to get down to my meta box.

When you register the CPT, you register it with supports. If you do not include title and editor in this array wordpress will not display the main title or the TinyMCE editor.
