The NBA, where #goacc happens!

We're back with another batch of tremendous entries for the #goacc Moment of the Week on BTP. Last week featured a close showdown between several worthy opponents, but ultimately, Mike Fox's strict rules on music at UNC's baseball games came out on top. I think we'll have a similarly close bout this week, as each of these are worthy of a victory. Which of these is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. Philip Rivers gave the commencement address at Catholic University, but forgot something very important (h/t @JCash_Money and @JPollack85).

Come on Rivers - you made that look your own! Time to go with the YOLO BOLO every day.

2. Oh look, now we have canine superfans in the ACC, too (h/t @ClemsonTigers).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Is it a tiger? Is it a dog? Is it a Tiger-Dog? Whatever it is, it&#39;s definitely celebrating <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23SolidOrange&amp;src=hash">#SolidOrange</a> Friday! <a href="http://t.co/SgiD7AeIiM">pic.twitter.com/SgiD7AeIiM</a></p>&mdash; Clemson Athletics (@ClemsonTigers) <a href="https://twitter.com/ClemsonTigers/statuses/467336165461622784">May 16, 2014</a></blockquote>

Good grief. Sadly, this is not the first instance of a dog being painted in a team's colors. Just look at this Alabama poodle. Now imagine the owner of this poodle seeing the Clemson dog. Here's what would happen: "HEY PAAAAAAWWWWWWWLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL THE ACC IS COPYING THE SEC YET AGAIN WHAT YOU THINK IMMA HANG UP AND LISSEN."

3. This FSU fan attempted to troll SEC fans in the comment section of SBNation's link to the Jameis Winston surveillance video. It went poorly (h/t @K_Trahan).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23goACC&amp;src=hash">#goACC</a> <a href="http://t.co/5nzGb4M0MH">pic.twitter.com/5nzGb4M0MH</a></p>&mdash; Kevin Trahan (@k_trahan) <a href="https://twitter.com/k_trahan/statuses/467092760596475905">May 16, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

Just a weak effort from the "vaunted" #FSUTwitter. (If you missed the link to the surveillance video from this continuously ridiculous story, head over here to check it out).

4. East Tennessee State University's football team is getting decidedly more #goacc (h/t @joshwgoodson).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>So much <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23GOACC&amp;src=hash">#GOACC</a> RT <a href="https://twitter.com/footballscoop">@footballscoop</a>: East Tennessee State HC Carl Torbush is brining Mike O’Cain on as OC <a href="http://t.co/uYaMUCWc1L">http://t.co/uYaMUCWc1L</a></p>&mdash; Josh Goodson (@joshwgoodson) <a href="https://twitter.com/joshwgoodson/statuses/466962346519195648">May 15, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

Hey ETSU, the nineties called - they wanted their #goacc back. Also, thanks a lot for making me remember an incredibly mediocre era of football.

5. Tim Duncan just has one question for the rest of the NBA teams in the playoffs (h/t @BlkSportsOnline).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>If you smeeeeelllll what the Duncan is cookin!! <a href="http://t.co/HZbvjC5djL">pic.twitter.com/HZbvjC5djL</a></p>&mdash; Robert Littal (@BlkSportsOnline) <a href="https://twitter.com/BlkSportsOnline/statuses/466780536082792448">May 15, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

Safe to say the Spurs hit Portland with the Rock Bottom in the last round of the playoffs.

6. The ACC has another idea for scheduling "nonconference" football games (h/t @awbatchelor).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23goacc&amp;src=hash">#goacc</a> RT <a href="https://twitter.com/McMurphyESPN">@McMurphyESPN</a>: ACC schools considering having non-conference games vs. other ACC teams, ADs/coaches tell <a href="https://twitter.com/espn">@ESPN</a></p>&mdash; Andrew Batchelor (@awbatchelor) <a href="https://twitter.com/awbatchelor/statuses/466558200171749376">May 14, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

Does this mean we're just headed towards something like "The Atlantic vs Coastal Division Challenge" to open the season? Ugh. I'd make another joke here, but @awbatchelor hits this one right out of the park:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>The ACC: Playing with themselves. Then. Now. Always. <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23goacc&amp;src=hash">#goacc</a></p>&mdash; Andrew Batchelor (@awbatchelor) <a href="https://twitter.com/awbatchelor/statuses/466558527851741184">May 14, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

*shao kahn voice* Outstanding.

7. The new ACC logo is unveiled in the most #goacc way possible (h/t @McMurphyESPN).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>The ACC has a brand new logo (but don&#39;t tell anyone) <a href="http://t.co/zcXRT0nKMc">pic.twitter.com/zcXRT0nKMc</a></p>&mdash; Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) <a href="https://twitter.com/McMurphyESPN/statuses/466255437357387776">May 13, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

Seriously? "SHHH?" Who in Greensboro came up with this horrible sign? And for the logo itself? Why did this need changing? It looks like a horrid airline logo. What they didn't tell you was that they came out with an alternate ACC logo as well that I discovered:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>in honor of the new acc logo....<a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23goacc&amp;src=hash">#goacc</a> <a href="http://t.co/uWIF4sHdp8">pic.twitter.com/uWIF4sHdp8</a></p>&mdash; Will Thompson (@thrillis4) <a href="https://twitter.com/thrillis4/statuses/466361757452484610">May 13, 2014</a></blockquote>

8. Someone want to explain why this is a shirt that exists? (h/t @PatrickClayborn).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23goACC&amp;src=hash">#goACC</a> RT <a href="https://twitter.com/IAmBryanBaker">@IAmBryanBaker</a>: I have no qualms with the first part, but, REALLY?!?

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

Someone should send this shirt to Mike Slive.

9. Peyton Manning gave the commencement address at UVA, and of course threw passes to some of the graduates (h/t @DerekMedlin).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23goacc&amp;src=hash">#goacc</a> RT <a href="https://twitter.com/BleacherReport">@BleacherReport</a>: Peyton Manning called out a few graduates to catch passes while giving a speech at UVA. <a href="http://t.co/moWYEt1l7j">http://t.co/moWYEt1l7j</a></p>&mdash; Derek Medlin (@DerekMedlin) <a href="https://twitter.com/DerekMedlin/statuses/468052567209947136">May 18, 2014</a></blockquote>

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


Scroll to about two minutes in to see Peyton lob some passes. Hey Mike London, maybe you should sign some of these kids for next season! Bet they've still got some eligibility left. Y'all might be able to win some games!

10. Tom Savage apparently underwent surgery to look like a famous actor (h/t @MarkEnnis).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>They say this is Tom Savage but there&#39;s no way this isn&#39;t Nicolas Cage. <a href="http://t.co/ErYdgq76YJ">pic.twitter.com/ErYdgq76YJ</a></p>&mdash; Mark Ennis (@MarkEnnis) <a href="https://twitter.com/MarkEnnis/statuses/467728678236200960">May 17, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

Just imagine..."Nicolas Cage starring in, 'The Holy Trinity of Transfers: the Tom Savage story.'"
