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

"This is literally the only face I can make."
"This is literally the only face I can make."
USA TODAY Sports

Last week, we examined how the power of #goacc even managed to infiltrate a town hall style meeting between all of the local athletic directors from NC State, Duke, UNC and NCCU. Truly quite the sight, as @SportsChrisH's question and @NCSU_99_17_24's "none of my business" meme that made the tweetboard screen behind the athletic directors ran away with the victory in one of the biggest landslide votes we've ever had here on BTP. Moving on, we've got a tremendous slate of entries to choose from this week, including several from ACC media days and more! Which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. Lets check in on Boston College at ACC Media Days! (h/t @joeovies).

Oof. Not many reporters want to talk to two Dudes, apparently.

2. This picture of Paul Johnson and Jim Grobe diagramming plays at ACC Media Days quickly turned into a photoshop contest (h/t @awbatchelor and @wxmoose).

Both of these are just fantastic. Bravo, gents.

3. Hey Dave Clawson, your thoughts on your quarterback? (h/t @lebrownlow and @mattyports).

Come on Paul, would it hurt you to smile? Wait, you are smiling? Alright then.

5. Louisville celebrated joining the ACC by having a special edition Makers Mark bottle with the ACC logo and their athletic director's face printed on the label (h/t @NCSU_99_17_24 and @McMurphyESPN).

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

This is the silliest corporate promotion ever. Does this mean Makers Mark is now one of the "official" ACC Sponsors?

6. Life rule #739: Never play paintball with Larry Fedora.

Dear God, were Fedora's paintballs actually made of lead? Someone make sure to include kevlar vests next time, good grief.

7. This woman on her wedding day decided nothing would be more special than being walked down the aisle by........Sebastian the Ibis? (h/t @DerekMedlin).

That was probably way more cheering than Sebastian was used to at football games, I mean AMIRITE??

8. Hey...what's Herb Sendek up to these days? (h/t @joshwgoodson).

Well....good to know you were next to the restroom, coach. Glad you felt the need to include that detail.

Glad we got that miscommunication cleared up, sir.

10. Late night at the #ACCKickoff got a tad weird (h/t @mattyports).
