It's finally here y'all. It's time for BTP's Second Annual #goacc Tournament of Champions, where we've compiled a bracket of literally the best (worst?) #goacc moments from the past year. There are some titanic entries at every seed, and I think we'll legitimately see some major upsets during the voting process.
Polls will be open for each round for two days, and there will be embedded SurveyMonkey sections underneath each matchup where you can vote.
We're going to start with none other than the Frank Beamer Regional, mainly because as you'll see in this process, ol' Frank was on a completely different level this year when it came to #goacc. You can also access the other regions of the #goacc Tournament of Champions here: Boeheim PJ Hairston Publix
Without further ado, it's time to Vote!
THE FRANK BEAMER REGIONAL OPENING ROUND
#1. Frank Beamer celebrates a 0-0 overtime score
#16. Jingle Beard Guy!

The aforementioned Beamer Regional was named mainly for this overwhelmingly popular #1 seed, which has to be the Kentucky Basketball equivalent of this year's field. My God. Look at this. If this picture doesn't absolutely sum up #goacc at its very essence, I'm not sure what does. Love the Jingle Beard guy, but come on, y'all know who to pick here.
#8. Philip Rivers is a big Kenny Powers fan
#9. UVA Public Address Announcer gets NSFW

This is a brutal 8 vs 9 matchup. On the one hand, noted bolo tie enthusiast Philip Rivers' portrayal of Kenny Powers during a softball game is utterly amazing. Then again, you've got UVA's arena voice calling Duke another word that begins with D. Welp. Tough call here!
#5. Stephen Tulloch tears ACL celebrating a sack
#12. Ryan Kelly's phenomenal interaction with Fake Karl Hess
LOL this is awesome: pic.twitter.com/UKgxUj7hy8

Poor Tulloch. That's up there with the Gramatica injury in terms of sheer absurdity. Here's what's equally weird about that - another player later in the season did the exact same celebration that Tulloch did, and he tore his ACL too! Maybe let's not do that sack celebration anymore guys. Anyways, this is an intriguing matchup and one where I think we might see one of the famous 5/12 upsets. Former Duke player Ryan Kelly's interaction with Karl Hess last year was simply hysterical. Bravo, sir. Could easily see that one moving on. What do y'all think?
#4. Virginia Tech players don't realize Penn State is in a one and one
#13. Dave Doeren Dance Party!
Whew. What's in the water up in Blacksburg these days? Y'all are all about some #goacc, which I must admit I appreciate greatly. Anyways, how on earth does an entire team forget that you're in a one and one? I mean, I know it was a long season, but good gracious y'all. Doeren's hilarious dance remix courteous of @joeovies might steal a few votes, but I think it's safe to go ahead and mark chalk on this matchup for the four seed.
#6. Miami's bizarre attendance ad
#11. Ron Cherry gets funky
You may recall that the U has been having a bit of an attendance problem for football for the last several years. That ad to me signifies that they've just given up. "Maybe if we try this reverse psychology, more people will come!" Yeah........nope. Tough draw for that ad, as they go up against #goacc legend Ron Cherry getting funky with his first down call. Don't be surprised here if Cherry advances!
#3. This ridiculous sequence between GT and NC State
#14. Bleacher Report naming Marquise Williams a Heisman contender in 2015
hahahaha come on pic.twitter.com/3bimaqP9kV
— Will Thompson (@thrillis4) December 26, 2014
First, I'm still laughing at the mere notion that anyone could suggest that anyone on UNC's team is a potential Heisman candidate, let alone Marquise Williams. My lord. What a ridiculous statement. Not even Phil Steele would say something that outrageous and he LOVES UNC. But as absurd as that suggestion is, just watch that video clip. That's an interception to GT, that GT then fumbles back to NC State, and State promptly throws a pick on the very next play that's returned for a touchdown. If you'll excuse me, I'm going to go throw up.
#7. Cutcliffe and Doeren compare six packs
#10. Fox Sports uses picture of UVA's stadium when describing atmosphere at VT's stadium
If you recall, you'll remember that this amazing photo of Doeren and Cutcliffe showing off their six packs was in "response" to the picture of Larry Fedora at the beach showing off his ridiculously ripped six pack that went viral. Whomever came up with this idea, bravo to you - an absolutely amazing picture. Potentially fell lower in the seeding that it probably should have, but I suspect they'll have no trouble moving past Fox Sports' dumb as hell blunder.
#2. Jameis Winston slips in the Rose Bowl against Oregon
#15. NC State fan on Big Brother
While it's rather mind blowing that somehow Big Brother is still on the air, come on. This is one of the toughest two seeds in this bracket, and y'all know who to pick here. That slip inspired hundreds of memes that night on Twitter, each of them absolute gold.
