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

COACH COACH DID YOU KNOW YOU GET US WINGS WITH EVERY FORCED PUNT???
COACH COACH DID YOU KNOW YOU GET US WINGS WITH EVERY FORCED PUNT???

Well....things have certainly been heated around here the last few days (hi FSU Twitter!). Let's everybody take a deep breath and relax for a moment so we can laugh at the sheer absurdity of #goacc. Last week we saw our highest participation here to date at BTP, with nearly 350 votes! Ultimately, you all decided that Stephen Tulloch pulling a Gramatica was the clear winner in field that contained several worthy winners. Can we hit 400 votes this week? Time to find out - which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. JJ Redick has some thoughts on the birth of his son! (h/t @jadande).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>JJ Redick on the birth of his son: &quot;When he first came out, I thought he was an alien from &#39;Prometheus.&#39;&quot;</p>&mdash; J.A.

I'm sure his son will love to see this tweet in whatever digital form exists in 20 years.

2. Noted NC State alum Bruce Carter...wait what? (h/t @pennholderness).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>If anyone knows Bruce Carter, tell him that google has him as an NC State alum. <a href="http://t.co/voQaEOV3ZP">pic.twitter.com/voQaEOV3ZP</a></p>&mdash; Penn Holderness (@pennholderness) <a href="https://twitter.com/pennholderness/status/516563812737368065">September 29, 2014</a></blockquote>

How often do you see UNC confused for NC State? That almost never happens.

3. Paul George was a day late for the FSU-NC State game (h/t @ohholybutt).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Paul George thinks the Florida State-NC State game is happening right now: <a href="http://t.co/T6Gx9hjyYI">pic.twitter.com/T6Gx9hjyYI</a></p>&mdash; OHB (@ohholybutt) <a href="https://twitter.com/ohholybutt/status/516378935031242753">September 29, 2014</a></blockquote>

I really wanna know what channel he was watching this on Sunday night - ESPN Classic? ESPN 8 the Ocho?

4. Sebastian the Ibis involved in a very, um, unusual promotion for Buffalo Wild Wings (h/t @DocHeelfire).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>So, so much <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a> in this one: <a href="http://t.co/U5LIupqy9v">http://t.co/U5LIupqy9v</a></p>&mdash; Doc Kennedy (@DocHeelfire) <a href="https://twitter.com/DocHeelfire/status/516211292206821377">September 28, 2014</a></blockquote>

Hang on, my brain is trying to think of words to describe this video, and it's coming up empty. But, in the meantime, @lebrownlow brings up a valid point:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/DocHeelfire">@DocHeelfire</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/thrillis4">@thrillis4</a> like what if Miami only forces one punt? Can you go redeem your one wing?</p>&mdash; Lauren Brownlow (@lebrownlow) <a href="https://twitter.com/lebrownlow/status/516368743354875905">September 28, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

This would be absolutely hysterical. "Yes, I'm here for a single chipotle lime bbq wing."

5. Good job, good effort Boston College and Pitt (h/t @RKalland).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a> <a href="http://t.co/wwukEAAd5V">pic.twitter.com/wwukEAAd5V</a></p>&mdash; Robby Kalland (@RKalland) <a href="https://twitter.com/RKalland/status/515998197970264064">September 27, 2014</a></blockquote>

Way to carry the conference banner this week, guys. Good lord. While Colorado State is a decent team, that's a game y'all have to win, BC.

*turns to glare at Pitt*

Y'all lost to a team coached by a guy who washes his hair with the wrong color Just for Men haircolor. Go to your room.

6. There are NC State scented Yankee Candles, because now we can actually smell what NC State Sheeeeeeeeeeet smells like.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>damnit Yankee Candle, I don’t want to know what NC State Sheeeeeeeet actually smells like <a href="http://t.co/G8qMWEcJnC">http://t.co/G8qMWEcJnC</a></p>&mdash; Will Thompson (@thrillis4) <a href="https://twitter.com/thrillis4/status/514846272801361920">September 24, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

This is worse than the #AllPumpkinSpiceEverything epidemic that's currently plaguing the world. But what would this candle actually smell like? Pain? Bricks? Tears?

7. Apparently Boston College changed their mascot according to AT&T (h/t @BCHysteria).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Hey BC can we please stop putting this on the jumbotron <a href="http://t.co/3IDe94DXGT">pic.twitter.com/3IDe94DXGT</a></p>&mdash; A.J. Black (@BCHysteria) <a href="https://twitter.com/BCHysteria/status/515922860129677312">September 27, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

As if it wasn't bad enough that BC lost to Colorado State, but their sponsors can't even get the team mascot right. Time to call Verizon, right BC?

8. Otto the Orange remains creepy as hell (h/t @lebrownlow and @civilian_wolf).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a> RT <a href="https://twitter.com/Civilian_Wolf">@Civilian_Wolf</a>: <a href="https://twitter.com/lebrownlow">@lebrownlow</a> nope. Not creepy at all: <a href="http://t.co/bYJGedJuj1">pic.twitter.com/bYJGedJuj1</a></p>&mdash; Lauren Brownlow (@lebrownlow) <a href="https://twitter.com/lebrownlow/status/516688907929669633">September 29, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

I'm not sure when this happened, but who thought publishing this picture was a good idea? Gracious.

9. The GoPack online store continues to be drunk.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Oops RT <a href="https://twitter.com/thrillis4">@thrillis4</a>: Hey GoPack store - pretty sure this is a Nebraska logo here on this watch <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a> <a href="http://t.co/yAN87yf8AY">pic.twitter.com/yAN87yf8AY</a></p>&mdash; Lauren Brownlow (@lebrownlow) <a href="https://twitter.com/lebrownlow/status/515507132167634944">September 26, 2014</a></blockquote>

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

This is not the first time our university's online store has done something ridiculous. Guess what? This Nebraska watch can STILL BE YOURS HERE for the low low price of $89.95!

10. Whomever made this mashup of ECU eviscerating UNC set to Grover from Sesame Street deserves an award.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>ok, i lol’d: <a href="https://t.co/AdDeR023X1">https://t.co/AdDeR023X1</a></p>&mdash; Will Thompson (@thrillis4) <a href="https://twitter.com/thrillis4/status/514399764960399360">September 23, 2014</a></blockquote>

I know I'm a tad late with this, but this is just absolutely fantastic.
