Welcome to another edition of the #goacc Moment of the Week here on BTP. If you're still recovering from last week's incredible batch of entries (no surprise Kris from Durham's Jeopardy fail won, as you can imagine), I've got some good news for you. This Star Wars Day edition of the #goacc Moment of the Week has a midi-chlorian level that's off the charts. Which of these worthy entries is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!
1. Notre Dame's Athletic Director and Coaches read their athletes' tweets, and hilarity ensued (h/t @DerekMedlin).
Come on, what's better than Jack Swarbrick reading a tweet about farting? You could tell by the end of that video he'd had enough. A resounding round of applause to whomever at Notre Dame came up with the brilliant idea to make this video. You could keep Jabba the Hutt entertained for weeks with that video. No trips to the Rancor pit here!
2. Jameis Winston was cited for stealing crab legs from Publix, then Twitter shattered (h/t to a lot of folks).
The force is certainly strong with these photoshops. If you want to see more of them, just hop on Twitter and search Jameis Winston. Here's what's so damn funny about this incident - THERE WAS A FREAKING PRESS CONFERENCE ABOUT THIS! Let's go to @edsbs for one of the actual questions asked:
"Did he actually cook the crab legs" WHY WOULD YOU FOLLOW ANY OTHER SPORT
"Did he actually cook the crab legs" WHY WOULD YOU FOLLOW ANY OTHER SPORT— Spencer Hall (@edsbs) April 30, 2014
An apt question, sir. The college football offseason is certainly something else. Only in this sport will you get questions about whether stolen crab legs were cooked. This story went viral immediately, and became so pervasive that even Charles Barkley was making fun of it, as you'll see here from @JamesCurle:
Even though the season is still three plus months away, I cannot wait for the first College Gameday. The signs will be incredible.
3. After the #CrabGate story broke, some Miami fans made some pretty stupid t-shirts.
I find your lack of creativity disturbing, Hurricanes fans.
4. Gregg Popovich has an interesting strategy to defend against Vince Carter (h/t @Lizzs_Lockeroom).
Come on, Coach Pop. Just use the force and tell your players that he is the player they are looking for. I think that would be a lot more effective than just passing around a picture.
5. Wake Forest is already recruiting Riley Skinner's son (h/t @JeffFischel).
Ok, college football recruiting is getting ridiculous. This kid's a newborn and Wake's putting that kind of pressure on him already? Y'all are worse than Qui-Gon Jinn telling Anakin he's the chosen one. As an aside, I'm just going to go ahead and assume Riley Jr. here will shred the Pack's secondary when he comes of age.
6. Tahj Boyd shows up for an autograph session in the most ridiculous limo ever (h/t @SaintWarrick, @Sopakoff).
Somehow I doubt a limo that size could make the Kessel Run in twelve parsecs.
7. This Miami recruiting ad left out a small detail.
Well, yes, there is Only one U, Miami...except it's in Coral Gables, not South Beach. Yeah, this is pretty much the Jar Jar Binks equivalent entry of this week's post. Let's move on.
8. The Chick-Fil-A Bowl Golf Challenge featured a selfie, because of course (h/t @ChickFilABowl).
Welcome to 2014, y'all. That damn selfie song is causing an epidemic. Wish we could ship that awful piece of music off to a galaxy far, far away.
9. Torry Holt tried an interesting recruiting tactic on Devonte Graham (h/t @ArmstrongABC11).
Akula pointed this tweet out earlier in the week here, but it's still hilarious either way. At least Torry is looking out for the football team, I suppose. It's just too bad that Devonte plays basketball (and has since declared he's headed to Kansas). Good thing Darth Vader isn't running the athletic department - that decision could've ended poorly for somebody, as we all know.
10. Twitter was briefly taken over by #ACCDerbyHorseNames.
The Kentucky Derby was yesterday, and as is customary a mashup style hashtag appeared (the gold standard being of course, #SeinfeldDerbyHorseNames). Above is the entirety of the #ACCDerbyHorseNames, because they're all just so damn good. As Darth Vader would say, "Never underestimate the power of #goacc."
