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

Well, you go to the beach for a Labor Day weekend and all #goacc hell breaks loose. The start of the college football season provided the proverbial can of kerosene to throw on the #goacc campfire, and it did not disappoint. Trust me, y'all are going to have trouble picking just one winner this week - just an incredible slate of entries. Figure we'll see a similar voting pattern as we did last week, with ESPN's Football Power Index (why is that a thing?) predicting State to have a ridiculously minute chance of winning the Atlantic Division just eking out a victory. Which one of these is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. Chad Morris should probably calm down (h/t @DerekMedlin).

I honestly don't want to picture how mad Coach Morris was after the game ended. That gives me nightmares thinking about it.

2. One of UNC's assistant coaches wore a Julius Peppers jersey on the sidelines during the game against Liberty.....wait, what? (h/t @SBNation).

I have so....so many questions.

3. BAH GAWD KING THAT'S RED LIGHTNING'S MUSIC!!! (h/t @NotSCWill).

Red Lightning is just the greatest. NOBODY SHOVES HIS TEAM AROUND!!

4. Hey, let's check in on Dave Clawson's first game with Wake Forest! (h/t @martinrickman@zachattach7@jscarp@redditCFB and @JamesCurle).

Welp, that's not a great start there coach. Did the game get any better?

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a> RT <a href="https://twitter.com/RedditCFB">@RedditCFB</a>: Last night UL Monroe had 85 plays from scrimmage and Wake Forest had 94 total yards.</p>&mdash; Justin Karp (@jskarp) <a href="https://twitter.com/jskarp/statuses/505417269715808256">August 29, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

I...um....yeah.....that's absolutely terrible. Perhaps it was because one of their assistants was too busy doing this on the sidelines:

I like wrasslin' every now and then too, random assistant coach, but maybe you should, yanno, actually coach your team instead of telling UL-Monroe you've got two words for them.

5. How about Syracuse, how did things fair in their game...oh, their QB got ejected (h/t @jnsanchez).

Yeah.........not a good look there, sir.

6. ESPN's Scorecenter app had some trouble explaining the UCLA-UVA game (h/t @lebrownlow and @Fritzmetzinger).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>What? <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a> RT <a href="https://twitter.com/FritzMetzinger">@FritzMetzinger</a>: The <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/UVAness?src=hash">#UVAness</a> has infected espn. <a href="http://t.co/eSyZkGbiWf">pic.twitter.com/eSyZkGbiWf</a></p>&mdash; Lauren Brownlow (@lebrownlow) <a href="https://twitter.com/lebrownlow/statuses/505769002741018624">August 30, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

Look, Scorecenter, if you really like the Safety Dance song, just say so. No need to get excessive about it.

7. Sideline reporter during Georgia Southern-NC State game forgot an important piece of equipment (h/t @ArmstrongABC11).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Oh yeah - microphone. Haha. Been there. <a href="https://t.co/yblJWuihpr">https://t.co/yblJWuihpr</a></p>&mdash; Mark Armstrong (@ArmstrongABC11) <a href="https://twitter.com/ArmstrongABC11/statuses/505789126336331776">August 30, 2014</a></blockquote>

Seriously laughing at the thought of her producer screaming in her ear YOUR MICROPHONE YOUR MICROPHONE PICK IT UP.

8. Did UCLA enjoy their trip to Charlottesville this past weekend? (h/t @marilyn_payne).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Quote of the day, in my opinion: &quot;Man....Virginia...what a pain in the ass.&quot; -Jeff Ulbrich, UCLA Defensive Coordinator</p>&mdash; Marilyn Payne (@marilyn_payne) <a href="https://twitter.com/marilyn_payne/statuses/505832842379927553">August 30, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

Yeah, I'd say they enjoyed it immensely.

9. The first ACC Media Conference Call seemed to go pretty well (h/t @tomahawknationand @sethemerson).

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

That's almost as bad as the call in the Louisville-Miami game just now...almost.

10. Meanwhile, in China....(h/t @SINow).
