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

"Welp, maybe I shouldn't have used that language."
"Welp, maybe I shouldn't have used that language."
Jeff Gammons

Well...that was a hell of a #goacc weekend, to put it bluntly. There are some strong entries on the docket this week, but I have a strong feeling I know what's going to win, and let's face it, I think most of you do too. This is mainly because this particular play may well end up being a number one overall seed in the second annual #goacc Tournament of Champions come springtime. I highly doubt we'll see the nearly three-way tie we saw last week between Jabari Price, UNC's woeful special teams and the Dave Doeren Dance party. Nope, there's going to be a #BEATEMDOWN in the #goacc poll this week, of this I have no doubt. But, I'd be doing a disservice to the rest of you by not listing all of the candidates, so without further ado, it's time to vote. Which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. Ed Davis has some thoughts on Charles Barkley.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Charles your fat a$$ can eat now</p>&mdash; Ed Davis (@eddavis32) <a href="https://twitter.com/eddavis32/status/531678211504369664">November 10, 2014</a></blockquote>

If you haven't followed the beginning of the NBA season so far, let me provide you with the backstory. The Los Angeles Lakers are horrible, and beloved NBA analyst Charles Barkley said he wouldn't eat until they won a game. Thus, the former UNC player felt the need to inform Sir Charles it was okay for him to eat again.

2. Wake Forest's Athletic Department is sensationally stupid (h/t @joeovies and @BloggerSoDear).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Hold up. Wake Forest tried to ban their alma mater after games? <a href="http://t.co/kjdoPN9zuZ">http://t.co/kjdoPN9zuZ</a></p>&mdash; Joe Ovies (@joeovies) <a href="https://twitter.com/joeovies/status/531833391528677376">November 10, 2014</a></blockquote>

Our friends over at BloggerSoDear posted this story a couple of days ago, and it blows my mind that this kind of thing would even be discussed in an athletic department. "Hey guys, you know that song that embodies our University and makes alumni remember their time here? Yeah let's do away with that." What on earth were they thinking? At least they came to their senses based on this email here:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-conversation="none" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/RedditCFB">@RedditCFB</a> Here&#39;s an email response from the AD in the aftermath today. Obviously they backtracked quickly. <a href="http://t.co/SJFdKwRBvw">pic.twitter.com/SJFdKwRBvw</a></p>&mdash; Jake (@BloggerSoDear) <a href="https://twitter.com/BloggerSoDear/status/531667948579348480">November 10, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

Ron Wellman has to be the worst AD in the ACC right now, yes? Is it even close?

3. Jimbo Fisher you watch your mouth! (h/t @the_Jameson).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>&quot;That&#39;s awful! That&#39;s f***** awful!&quot; - Jimbo Fisher <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/FSU?src=hash">#FSU</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a> <a href="https://t.co/zACcFmxl4o">https://t.co/zACcFmxl4o</a></p>&mdash; Jameson (@the_Jameson) <a href="https://twitter.com/the_Jameson/status/531272069083049984">November 9, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

"Jimbo, the Commissioner's Office is on line one!"

4. The sequence from the 2nd quarter of the GT-State game might be the #goacc Momemt of the year (h/t @theBenSwain and @theACCDN).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>If you’re not watching, Brissett threw a pick and State stripped the ball on the return. Then Brissett threw a pick 6. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a></p>&mdash; Ben Swain (@TheBenSwain) <a href="https://twitter.com/TheBenSwain/status/531152810021097472">November 8, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

If you somehow missed this incredibly (and frustratingly) baffling series of plays, our friends over at the ACC Digital Network have the video:

<script height="512px" width="910px" src="http://player.ooyala.com/iframe.js#ec=Q4MXBscTq9MeKYkrKzv39toW84lZUQFi&pbid=MDYzZmYzZjIwNTA0YjI4Y2YyM2JmNTgw"></script>

State never recovered from this unbelievable blunder, which led to me hanging out with my friends Coors Light and PBR. Sigh.

5. ACC officiating everybody! (h/t @AlexGould17).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>PASS INTERFERENCE, NUMBER DEFENSE <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goACC?src=hash">#goACC</a> <a href="https://t.co/XBuJSQFmzI">https://t.co/XBuJSQFmzI</a></p>&mdash; Alex Gourd (@alexgould17) <a href="https://twitter.com/alexgould17/status/530560073995939840">November 7, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

We've all made the slip up of saying something like "Number A," when referring to a list, but number defense? Good job, good effort sir.

6. TJ Warren is deathly afraid of snakes (h/t @SBNation and @deuce4922).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a> RT <a href="https://twitter.com/SBNation">@SBNation</a>: The Suns pranked players with a fake snake.

Right there with ya, Tony Buckets. Snakes are the worst. Also, who knew that Shavlik Randolph was still in the NBA?

7. Mario Williams just has an unusual way of showing school spirit, OK y'all? (h/t @ekaycbs@WillBrinson and our own @AkulaWolf).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Go State RT <a href="https://twitter.com/WillBrinson">@WillBrinson</a>: wtf RT <a href="https://twitter.com/ekaycbs">@ekaycbs</a>: So Mario Williams is, um, the Keymaster. <a href="http://t.co/ZDqX6qWwDl">pic.twitter.com/ZDqX6qWwDl</a></p>&mdash; Steven (@akulawolf) <a href="https://twitter.com/akulawolf/status/531535496162590721">November 9, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

I can't lie, those are pretty terrifying though.

8. Number 44 on UVA is going to be hearing about this in the film room (h/t to our own @AkulaWolf).

<iframe class="vine-embed" src="https://vine.co/v/OeYPb9FFveu/embed/simple" width="480" height="480" frameborder="0"></iframe><script async src="//platform.vine.co/static/scripts/embed.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Upon further review, I think it's apparent that his controller ran out of batteries or something. Either that or his X button is broken.

9. Brian Kelly remains terrible (h/t @JBrading).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Lmfao Brian Kelly always blaming others <a href="http://t.co/qhMoGiVVmQ">http://t.co/qhMoGiVVmQ</a></p>&mdash; FMFFM (@jbrading) <a href="https://twitter.com/jbrading/status/531498072887791616">November 9, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

"Hey guys, lemme just park this bus on top of my quarterback real quick." Good grief, not a good look Brian.

10. This..."document," was found nailed to a tree at a State tailgate. It's...something (h/t @mtdukes).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Notice posted in the NC State tailgate lots demanding a more complete UNC-CH investigation. <a href="http://t.co/cM99dGtXp3">pic.twitter.com/cM99dGtXp3</a></p>&mdash; Tyler Dukes (@mtdukes) <a href="https://twitter.com/mtdukes/status/531137306309455872">November 8, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

I'm not really sure what to make of this, to be honest. This....this is out there. I mean, just take a look at this part:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>To item ten: Shavlik Randolph went to Duke. What is this person smoking? <a href="http://t.co/LKcstbOtMX">pic.twitter.com/LKcstbOtMX</a></p>&mdash; Will Thompson (@thrillis4) <a href="https://twitter.com/thrillis4/status/531220922733445120">November 8, 2014</a></blockquote>

And now, for your moment of zen,

THE JIM ROSS BAH GAWD MOMENT OF THE WEEK!

We have our first basketball moment of the year, and it features former Clemson player KJ McDaniels, who's currently playing for the Philadelphia Tankers 76ers. Take it away, JR!

<iframe class="vine-embed" src="https://vine.co/v/OiJaz5PI3WF/embed/simple" width="600" height="600" frameborder="0"></iframe><script async src="//platform.vine.co/static/scripts/embed.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

That's one of the more vicious blocks you'll ever see. My goodness.

See y'all next week!
