We're back on BTP with another tremendous edition of the #goacc Moment of the Week. Had a bit of a barnburner last week, but ultimately Miami's bizarre recruiting ad edged out some very worthy contenders. I'll be honest, I had a tough time making my vote for this week, as all of these entries are absolutely hysterical. But enough blabbering, let's get down to business. Which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. Big Brother, inexplicably in its sixteenth season, adds some #goacc flair (h/t @theBenSwain).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>From <a href="https://twitter.com/Ensabin">@Ensabin</a>, the new cast of Big Brother features a dude wearing an NC State shirt and rocking an NC State beard. <a href="http://t.co/2mcEiudVwI">pic.twitter.com/2mcEiudVwI</a></p>&mdash; Ben Swain (@TheBenSwain) <a href="https://twitter.com/TheBenSwain/statuses/481840022799515648">June 25, 2014</a></blockquote>

That dude is none other than Donny Thompson, whose apparent claim to fame is "that he was the janitor at Kelly Pickler's high school." Reality television everybody!

2. The Miami Hurricanes football team will turn down for NOBODY in the weight room (h/t @DerekMedlin).

Are the disco lights really necessary to perform cleans? Is this what college coaches are showing recruits these days? Hold on, I think I've already reached the get off my lawn phase in life. Dear God. Let's move on.

3. Louisville is having some trouble with the new ACC logo (h/t @MarkEnnis@TomFornelli).

Didn't somebody give Louisville the handbook on the ACC logo? THEY'VE ALREADY VIOLATED THESE TENETS!!

4. Tim Duncan celebrated his fifth NBA Title with the Spurs by heading to Chick-Fil-A (h/t @the_Jameson).

This is not the first time an athlete celebrated a major professional accomplishment by heading to a fast food joint. Who remembers when Phil Mickelson went to a Krispy Kreme with his kids wearing his green jacket?

5. Somebody get Tim Cook on the line, because #goacc has infected iOS (h/t @RCorySmith).

Hopefully this will get corrected in the iOS update rumored to be hitting this fall.

6. The new Carolina Hurricanes coach has some reading up to do on the ACC (h/t @lebrownlow@ArmstrongABC11 and @the_Jameson).
