The 2nd annual #goacc Tournament of Champions: Final Four

New, 11 comments

The best of the best (worst?) have been selected after a rigorous process by the selection committee. Now it's up to you to help determine the #goacc champion of the season.

Here it is, y'all. Only four of the most #goacc moments remain in our annual battle for #goacc supremacy. And yet again, we've had another massive upset (I'm sure y'all know which one it is...cannot believe this entry has made it this far). Let's not waste anymore time, and get down to the most important vote of 2015. What will be our #goacc championship?

THE #goacc TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS FINAL FOUR

#1. Frank Beamer celebrates a 0-0 score heading into overtime

vs

#7. "Knowlige is power."

I'm literally still in shock that Knowlige was able to move past BeeJay Anya's embrace of Karl Hess in a fairly convincing performance, winning 121-98 out of 219 total votes. Cannot believe it. Meanwhile, Beamer yet again obliterated his opponent, winning 163-57 out of 220 total votes. I've been wrong each time, but I just don't see anyway that Beamer is going to lose to Knowlige, as impressive as the #7 seed has been. Beamer has the makeup of an undisputed champion...but he has a real test in front of him here.

As funny as Kris from Durham not knowing NC State's mascot was, he didn't stand a chance against this one seed. Our friends to the north, and their inability to spell their own former player's name obliterated Kris from Durham, winning 171-48 out of a total 219 votes. Our final member of the #goacc Final Four, that fantastic headline from Technician Sports, barely snuck in winning 113-101 out of a total 214 votes. Again, let's be real here. That headline is amazing, but it doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell against this one seed. Will we get to see the dream #goacc matchup in the tournament finals?
