Boy do we have a doozie of a #goacc Moment of the Week here on BTP this week. I'd like to personally take the time to welcome our new neighbors in Louisville! You guys sure didn't waste any time at all embracing the #goacc mantra (as you'll see below), which is both fascinating and terrifying. It's like y'all have been here all along! Meanwhile, last week we saw Big Brother's NC State contestant win going away against some pretty stiff competition. Can Louisville win in their first official week in the ACC? Let's find out - which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. Ryan Kelly has a phenomenal interaction with @KarlHessReferee on Twitter.

Just for a minute imagine Karl Hess as the officiant of a wedding, which is high comedy in and of itself. But the fact that Kelly says what we'd all imagine Karl Hess doing at a wedding, well, that's just fantastic. Bravo, sir.

2. Someone should probably take control of Bobby Petrino's Twitter account before he gets himself in trouble (h/t @BunkiePerkins).

Listen, I know Sex Tape is a comedy movie, but given Petrino' someone should monitor that account a bit better. Strong first #goacc entry, Louisville!

3. To celebrate the Cardinals move to the ACC, several ACC mascots visited Louisville. It went about as expected (h/t @lebrownlow and @theACC).

No, Otto, NO! BAD OTTO! YOU STOP THAT RIGHT NOW! Also, why do I get a very Game of Thrones-ish vibe from that Instagram picture?

4. Noted Syracuse alumnus Mike Tirico thinks Costa Rica is an island nation (h/t @Deadspin).

See, ESPN, this is why you need to take Bill Walton everywhere, so he can drop facts like Argentina being one of a few bi-continental countries in the world. He would've known that Costa Rica is not an island.

5. Jennifer Lawrence is SUPER excited about Louisville being in the ACC now (h/t @the_Jameson and @slmandel).

Don't think she'll be winning another Academy Award for that narration (click the Meet the Cards link to see the video). Here's what I thought of that effort:

6. Mike London uses Facebook like he coaches football. (h/t @WillsWorldMN).


7. Notre Dame assistant coach selling all of his Adidas gear at a yard sale.

Goes without saying that if a player did this there'd be a Notice of Inquiry fired off faster than the speed of light to said school. The NCAA everybody!

8. Jabari Parker throws some serious shade at Andrew Wiggins at the NBA draft (h/t @JAdande).

Good grief - what are they so mad about? I can't believe ESPN hasn't plastered this image all over their website trying to create a "rivalry" between these two.
