Holy hell, what a week.

Seriously though, that was one of the wildest damn weekends of college football I think I've ever experienced. Excluding the brutal beatdown from Clemson (which could've been a #goacc Moment winner on its own, because that was a putrid performance all around), it was like the entirety of college football had been infected by Katy Perry's craziness from College Gameday earlier this past Saturday (which was absolutely hysterical). It should come as no surprise then that we've got a fantastic slate of entries on the docket this week, and if last week's extremely close battle is any indication, y'all are going to have your hands full picking a winner this week. I'm also debuting a new segment this week, inspired by one of this week's entries...more on that after number ten.

At any rate, it's time to select a winner - which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. I'm not sure that's the proper way to hand off the football, Wake Forest (h/t to our own @AkulaWolf).

I mean, at least y'all scored some points this week, but seriously, putting Crisco on the ball does not actually help. This music feels appropriate while watching this vine. Speaking of Wake Forest...

2. IT'S WEBB SIMPSON DANCE PARTY TIME!!! (h/t @GrillRoom).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Webb Simpson - PGA Tour player, horrible dancer.

(No, @WNFIV - that is not the Twitter account for the Carolina Country Club restaurant). Let's take a look at the video below!

<iframe src="//player.vimeo.com/video/108037809" width="500" height="281" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe>

Hold on, I'm going to go watch this on continuous loop for the next few hours. Absolutely hysterical.

3. LACES OUT, NOTRE DAME! (h/t Jim Weber).

<iframe class="vine-embed" src="https://vine.co/v/OK72uJZrVZd/embed/simple" width="600" height="600" frameborder="0"></iframe><script async src="//platform.vine.co/static/scripts/embed.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Hopefully the fact that Notre Dame won the game will remove any impetus for this being the inspiration for a real life Ray Finkle from Ace Ventura Pet Detective. I'm going to go ahead and guess that Brian Kelly turned at least magenta after that botched kick.

4. Syracuse WR drops wide open touchdown, PA system at the Carrier Dome plays touchdown horn anyway (h/t @Rodger_Sherman).

<iframe class="vine-embed" src="https://vine.co/v/OmYZZQjBjMl/embed/simple" width="600" height="600" frameborder="0"></iframe><script async src="//platform.vine.co/static/scripts/embed.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

This is a real life example of a fail horn. Good job good effort, Carrier Dome staff!

5. Former Clemson QB Charlie Whitehurst is slowly morphing into Johnny Depp (h/t @jwyattsports).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a> RT <a href="https://twitter.com/jwyattsports">@jwyattsports</a>: Look who made Nashville Lifestyles&#39; 25 Most Beautiful People -- it&#39;s <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Titans?src=hash">#Titans</a> QB <a href="https://twitter.com/cwhitey6">@cwhitey6</a> <a href="http://t.co/iDVl2toh59">pic.twitter.com/iDVl2toh59</a></p>&mdash; Will Thompson (@thrillis4) <a href="https://twitter.com/thrillis4/status/517338101208084483">October 1, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

Don't believe me? See for yourself:

Johnny Depp 2

Just add a little more facial hair and Whitehurst will be a dead ringer for Depp.

6. Hey Joey Galloway...might want to revise that college football playoff bracket (h/t @jireland80).

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

I'm going to go out on a limb and say he's probably not serious...at least, I hope he's not serious with this.

7. It's pretty easy to go to a Miami Hurricanes football game these days (h/t @BillyCorben).

As of publishing of this column, prices are up to a whopping $6.00 - be careful out there big spenders! Somebody must've shown this page to Al Golden here during the loss to GT, because good lord at this face:

Here's the video - it's certainly something:

Maybe she meant it was a struggle to watch, like it was boring watching Wake get blown out? Other than that I've got no idea. Kind of wondering if they were actually watching any of the games in Bristol.

9. Swing and a miss there, Tim Brandt.

Not like the Hokies needed the real Marshawn Lynch to run over that atrocious UNC defense.

10. Georgia Tech runs a fake punt, then their player gets spinebustered (h/t to our own @akulawolf).

That's probably going to hurt for awhile. As I mentioned earlier, there was a particular entry this week that's inspired me to start a new segment here on the #goacc Moment of the Week. Without further ado, I give you....

THE JIM ROSS BAH GAWD MOMENT(s) OF THE WEEK!

Many of you know I have a fond affinity for old school wrasslin' mashups, and this past week had <LeBron voice> not one, not two but THREE opportunities for the legendary Jim Ross to lend his voice for you to enjoy and hopefully help ease the pain of our team being chokeslammed by Vic Beasley through the Spanish Announce Table. We'll start with the aforementioned spinebuster:

Booker T approves of that perfect form. But this was not the only moment of the weekend that called for good ol' JR that featured an ACC alum. Oh no. Let's head out to the MLB Postseason, where Madison Bumgarner channeled his best Stone Cold Steve Austin:

That is some impressive beer bashing. Last, and most certainly not least, some of you may have seen during the Alabama-Ole Miss game a Tide fan get obliterated by stadium security for throwing things on to the field. That security guard must be a huge fan of JBL, because, well, see for yourself:

BAH GAWD KING! Well I hope y'all enjoyed that - I'm hoping we'll have enough material to keep this new segment going through the season! But what are y'all still waiting for? Time to vote on a winner!
