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

This picture is absolutely incredible.

First, I'd like to thank all of y'all that voted last week - we had our highest vote turnout for the #goacc Moment of the Week in several weeks, with over 325 votes! Really appreciate that y'all. Second, man was last week's competition a thing of beauty, with the collective fails of the FSU-NC State game holding off a really late charge from P.J. Hairston's atrocious flop for the victory. Hopefully y'all will like this week's slate of entries just as much, because I think they're pretty damn fantastic. We've also got a ridiculous Jim Ross BAH GAWD moment that's sure to help you get your week started in the right direction. What are you waiting for? It's time to vote - which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. UNC and WFU schedule a "nonconference" football series (h/t @McMurphyESPN).

This is so damn stupid that this is something that actually has to happen for two Tobacco Road opponents to play each other. I get that with conference expansion that you lose the ability to play everyone twice, but this is ridiculous. In case you missed it, @celebrityhottub over at Every Day Should be Saturday wrote a hilarious column about this stupid scheduling that's worth your time.

2. Swing and a miss, ESPN.

Seriously? You can't spell Sunday right? Come on, on-screen graphics person. Pitiful.

3. Georgia Tech's no good, very historically bad performance against UVA (h/t @LostLetterman).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>This is an absolute abomination. <a href="http://t.co/KfxDRpvjBk">pic.twitter.com/KfxDRpvjBk</a></p>&mdash; LostLettermen.com (@LostLettermen) <a href="https://twitter.com/LostLettermen/status/558586611966177280">January 23, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

Where do I even begin? UVA's a wonderfully good team, but come on...twenty-eight points?!? That's a laughable effort. If y'all didn't owe so much damn money to Paul Hewitt, I'd say it's probably time to move on from the Brian Gregory era...but y'all might be a tad cash strapped.

4. Former Duke Assistant Chris Collins had a hilarious meltdown on the sidelines (h/t @SportsNation).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Northwestern coach Chris Collins is the picture of grace. <a href="https://t.co/5bhsrK5Wg1">https://t.co/5bhsrK5Wg1</a></p>&mdash; SportsNation (@SportsNation) <a href="https://twitter.com/SportsNation/status/558447000891695104">January 23, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

What on earth has Collins so mad? I mean they did blow a massive lead against Maryland on the road after the game against Ohio State and hey wait this sounds familiar...damnit, now I get why he's so mad. If you'll excuse me I'll be drowning my sorrows.

5. Jim Boeheim caught digging for gold on TV yet again.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Jim Boeheim digging for gold, a tradition unlike any other <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a> <a href="https://t.co/op7ySyPqls">https://t.co/op7ySyPqls</a></p>&mdash; Will Thompson (@thrillis4) <a href="https://twitter.com/thrillis4/status/559883969974763521">January 27, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

No shame at all. None. Boeheim is going to get all up in that nose and there's nothing you can do to stop him.

6. Let's check in on Frank Beamer watching UVA-VT (h/t to our own @akulawolf).

There's so much happening here that I don't even know where to begin. Why's that little girl next to him so upset? Is it because Frank wouldn't share his milkshake? Was she upset from watching VT basketball? Is Frank caught in a timewarp? What's going through his head? WE NEED ANSWERS PEOPLE RIGHT NOW DAMNIT!!!

7. Maybe Georgia Tech has improved since the UVA game...lolnope.

<iframe class="vine-embed" src="https://vine.co/v/OTbqxHmn3Yx/embed/simple" width="600" height="600" frameborder="0"></iframe><script async src="//platform.vine.co/static/scripts/embed.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

If you were like me and watched the first half of this putrid battle between GT and BC, well, that's thirty minutes of our lives we'll never get back. Good grief.

8. J.P. Tokoto brought a massive teddy bear with him to a press conference. Wait what? (h/t @dijana_kunovac).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>uuuup next....JP Tokoto (and Jerry). <a href="http://t.co/vxQn5c8Ghs">pic.twitter.com/vxQn5c8Ghs</a></p>&mdash; Dijana Kunovac (@dijana_kunovac) <a href="https://twitter.com/dijana_kunovac/status/558707817553879040">January 23, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

I don't even know where to begin here. Someone's going to have to explain this one to me.

9. Syracuse player falls down on his own on a fast break (h/t to our own @akulawolf).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a> <a href="https://t.co/hIQTtCivqW">https://t.co/hIQTtCivqW</a></p>&mdash; Steven (@akulawolf) <a href="https://twitter.com/akulawolf/status/559865496766779396">January 27, 2015</a></blockquote>

This vine needed a little something extra, and I think y'all will like the end result:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>A game of Mario Kart broke out at the Smith Center!

10. Bob Rathbun gets NSFW on the call against Miami (h/t @joeovies).

<iframe class="vine-embed" src="https://vine.co/v/OIjmxD9mD3q/embed/simple" width="600" height="600" frameborder="0"></iframe><script async src="//platform.vine.co/static/scripts/embed.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Couldn't have made that joke better myself, Joe. Outstanding.

And now, for your moment of zen,

THE JIM ROSS BAH GAWD MOMENT OF THE WEEK!

We return to the Association this week, where noted Jim Ross legend DeAndre Jordan crushes another pour soul. Without further ado, let's hear it called from good Ol' JR:
