The #goacc Moment of the Week (11/23/2013)

The weekly in depth look at the best (worst?) moments in ACC schadenfreude.

Grant Halverson

After the roaring success of last week, we're back to examine yet another batch of tremendously terrible moments in the week that was in the ACC. Wil Baumann and Swaggy Miami Tailgate battled hard last week, but Baumann's derpy FG botch was just too much to overcome. Who will the readers choose this week? Let's find out.

1. TJ Warren enjoys basketball.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>I played basketball today. I had fun</p>&mdash; TJ Warren (@T24Warren) <a href="">November 23, 2013</a></blockquote>

Oh. I'm glad to hear you had fun today, TJ. Do you not always have fun playing basketball? I hope that's not the case.

2. Better pick up that tab, Maryland.

After the Courts ruled in favor of Ninja Swoff, you better open that checkbook, Terps. The ACC also takes cash in large briefcases, too.

3. ABC 11 getting a jump on Black Friday "Sales."

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Really, WTVD? &quot;PIRATES SALE ON&quot;? <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; R.L. Bynum (@RL_Bynum) <a href="">November 24, 2013</a></blockquote>

Good grief....let's just move on.

4. UNC loses to Belmont in basketball, and amazingly, Roy didn't kick this guy out.

Everyone of course remembers the incident of the Presbyterian College fan being kicked out of the Smith Center for heckling, so it was mildly surprising that this spectacular Belmont fan wasn't removed from the premises for shouting the lyrics to Miley Cyrus' song, "Wrecking Ball," during a Jimmy Mike Mac FT attempt. Apparently, this loss caused some odd reactions from UNC fans.

(Brilliant work, @wxmoose).

5. Jeff Bzdelik cheat code enabled.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Go Deacs? <a href="">@BloggerSoDear</a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Jamari D (@J_Debnam12) <a href="">November 19, 2013</a></blockquote>

Look, Jeff, I know it's been a frustrating few seasons at Wake, but don't you think it's time to call off the dogs? That must've been some cheat code you entered.

6. RIP, "This is Our State."

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Listener just emailed me this pic/billboard on HWY 1 in Wake Forest. Salvo at <a href=";src=hash">#NCSTATE</a> <a href=";src=hash">#Wolfpack</a> <a href=";src=hash">#ECUvsNCST</a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Dennis Glasgow (@dennisglasgow) <a href="">November 23, 2013</a></blockquote>

Sigh. If there's one good thing about this season, it almost certainly has to mean the end of that abysmal branding campaign.

7. Duke towel guy nearly gets run over. (h/t @bubbaprog)


Just take a minute to soak in the brilliance of this GIF. Duke's towel guy tries to cheat and steal a moment to wipe the court down, only to be nearly run down on a counter fast break the other way. The look on his face is priceless.
