We open the Boeheim Regional with this unbelievably egregious #goacc moment from our friends at Syracuse, because my LORD how can you misspell the name of player on his jersey the night you are retiring it? No one thought to proofread that? It's kind of important that you hand an honorary jersey the night you're retiring his number in front of thousands of fans and alums that you SPELL THE GUY'S NAME RIGHT. Unreal. Unfortunate that Beast Mode Guy couldn't crack anything higher than the 16 seed, because I found that picture absolutely hysterical. No chance of a major upset here, y'all know what to do.
#8. Dabo Swinney dances to Happy!
#9. Upset Daily Tar Heel Columnist
Yet another tough 8 vs 9 pairing. Dabo's peak Dad dancing to Pharrell's Happy is one of the best vines of the last year without question. But don't overlook the saltiness of that Daily Tar Heel columnist's "post" after State obliterated the Heels in Chapel Hill in football to close the regular season. Another tough one for sure here, wouldn't be surprised if either seed won.
#5. Some great tweets got displayed during the #FanTownHall event
#12. Belk Belk'd up the hell out of this Louisville shirt
— Joe Ovies (@joeovies) July 17, 2014
If you recall, over the summer, WRAL and 99.9 put together a rather unprecedented gathering of all of the major athletic directors from the Triangle Area to discuss the changing landscape in college sports. Well, behind them was a live pegboard of tweets that continuously updated, and a few amazing ones made it on to the big board, most notably the one from @NCSU_99_17_24 with excellent use of the Kermit Tea meme. Meanwhile, that Belk shirt is absolutely laughable. Louisville Carolina? Go home Belk, you're drunk. Could see the 12 upset here, but count me down for chalk as far as my prediction goes.
#4. Mark Chapman's horrific out call
#13. PJ Hairston's atrocious flop
LAWD have mercy what a matchup at the 4 vs 13 line. That out call from noted
dunce umpire Mark Chapman cause a firestorm of outrage on Twitter from State fans when it happened. You can still count me in the camp that thought he blew the call, but I digress. Due to scheduling, PJ's hilariously bad flop here fell to the thirteen seed, but good luck picking a winner between these two. It's a shame that both of these can't move on to the next round, because they're both deserving of moving on.
#6. What on earth did Lou Holtz just say?
#11. Georgia Tech's historically bad performance against UVA
I think I heard the word "comb" https://t.co/J0ihT5IPXI

If someone can translate at all what Holtz just said in that vine, I'll gladly give you $20. It's going to be tough for whatever Webdings font Lou just said to beat this unbelievably atrocious performance by the Yellow Jackets against UVA, but I think Lou is up to the task. And while I don't think the eleven seed here will be moving on, I have some great news, GT fans! It sounds like Brian Gregory is back for another year in Atlanta! Get excited! ...Hey wait where are you all going?
#3. BC Student runs on to the field, nobody stops him
#14. Mary Willingham's dumb defense against accusations of plagiarism
So last night at the BC-Pitt game I lost odds and had to jump on the field so I did but no security stopped me pic.twitter.com/CgiAZaiKet

MW on accusation of plagiarism: "Whatever I did, I did, and, you know, whatever. There's nothing I can do about it." http://t.co/mM1RybJbR5

I still can't get over in this day and age, when security at stadiums is supposedly of the utmost concern, how a student managed to find his way on the field, and not only hang out on the sidelines, but if you recall, he straight up interacted with players on the sideline and again...NOBODY STOPPED HIM! How on earth does something like that happen? Amazing. This should be a monumental blowout over Willingham's ridiculous defense against accusations she committed plagiarism, though that comment did set off a number of hilarious memes on Twitter. Willing to guarantee that the BC student moves on here in convincing fashion.
#7. Pretty sure that's not Joel Berry
#10. Weird as hell video of random dude celebrating UNC and South Carolina losing
Tough to call this one. It's pretty bad when the media uses the wrong picture for a player on the screen, but when you use a player from the rival school that plays an entirely different sport? That's next level terrible. But man, what in the hell is that video? I can't figure out why that guy just keeps switching back and forth between NC State and Clemson gear, or what connection he has to either school. Totally bizarre - and just bizarre enough that I could see him pulling off the upset and moving on to the round of 32.
#2. Kris from Durham calls NC State the Huskies on Jeopardy
#15. Miami football tickets are super cheap
Miami Hurricanes football tickets: 88 cents pic.twitter.com/GVIrn9FHrn

The Boeheim Regional closes with a matchup that will undoubtedly end in a blow out. That guy is from Durham and he didn't know NC State is the Wolfpack? Good lord. Regardless of the fact that you could basically get tickets to Miami football games for under a dollar, there's no way Kris is going to be defeated here.
