New, 25 comments

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

"Really focused for my Temple Run 2 debut."
"Really focused for my Temple Run 2 debut."
Steve Dykes

After a slow start last week, the spinebuster Miami laid on GT pulled away to a comfortable victory, despite a rather solid field of entries. Really surprised more of you didn't think the price of Miami Football tickets was the winner, but hey - y'all decide the winners around here! At any rate, we've got another fantastic slate of contestants here on the #goacc Moment of the Week, which hopefully will take at least some of the sting of this past Saturday's atrocious loss away (and the news that seven players got suspended for using BB Guns, which is a #goacc winner in and of itself). Time to decide a winner - which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. The ACC is on Snapchat now...oh lord (h/t @theACC).

...Because nothing says collegiate sports like creating an account with an application used notoriously to share "special" photos. WELP.

2. This Smithfield's Chicken'n Bar-B-Q fan has some thoughts on Debbie Yow (h/t @vgt311).

I'm sure Smithfield's appreciates the love you have for their food, Mr. Tindall, but I'm not sure they have any pull with the NC State Athletic Department, though.

3. Let's check in on Miami's attendance woes again...nope, still terrible (h/t to our own @MorrisonCrying, plus @aclarke90 and @Ramzy).

Dear God. Surely something can be done about this, I mean, tickets were going for LESS THAN A FREAKING DOLLAR AT ONE POINT LAST WEEK. You're telling me nobody would spend a dollar to go watch Miami? They have a pretty good team. Well, let's see exactly what the attendance numbers were:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>43,953 <a href="http://t.co/y7nDSx0Tqs">pic.twitter.com/y7nDSx0Tqs</a></p>&mdash; Ramzy Nasrallahween (@ramzy) <a href="https://twitter.com/ramzy/status/521639973381238784">October 13, 2014</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Um.....seems a bit high.

4. Anthony Boone completes two passes in one play. Wait, what?

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

I'll be honest, I had no idea it's a penalty for the same player to complete two passes during the same play. This entry was brought to you by The More You Know!

5. Apparently you can download Russell Wilson as a playable character in Temple Run 2 (h/t @joeovies and @allstateallthet).

"Yeah, that weird skull monster is fast, but at the end of the day it's all about the effort we put in together as a team. Without my teammates, I never would've made it to the end of that run today unscathed whilst being able to collect a high score."

6. Here's Dabo Swinney dancing to Pharrell's "Happy." (h/t @DocHeelFire and @edsbs).

Yes indeed, sir. That finger point slays me every time. No idea how whomever filmed this didn't just lose it at that point.

7. Jacoby couldn't quite recreate that magic from the FSU game (h/t @the_Jameson).

If you'll excuse me, I'm going to go projectile vomit.

8. This UNC fan has had QUITE ENOUGH of the Larry Fedora era (h/t @ChrisBunn21).

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

That's...um...yeah. Wow.

9. Former Miami player Andre Johnson got probably a bit more than he wanted with this leap into the stands (h/t @Steve_OS).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>This lady is obviously a huge Andre Johnson fan. <a href="https://t.co/w6hJw1dPK1">https://t.co/w6hJw1dPK1</a></p>&mdash; Steve Noah (@Steve_OS) <a href="https://twitter.com/Steve_OS/status/520384929952464896">October 10, 2014</a></blockquote>

Easy, lady. Gracious.

10. Lou Holtz goes insane on ESPN (h/t @the_Jameson).

This is what #CLANGA does to people, apparently.

And now, for your moment of zen,

THE JIM ROSS BAH GAWD MOMENT OF THE WEEK!

I'm sure Tony Romo is happy the Cowboys pulled out the win, but gracious he can't be feeling good after this hit:

Good ol' JR is tired of everyone picking on Romo, y'all.
