The #goacc Moment of the Week (5/19/2015)

New, 20 comments

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

Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports

Hell of a comeback we saw last week, where the dancing NC State kid scored enough votes at the very end to supplant Austin Rivers' fall by one vote. Will we see the same kind of performance this week? I think we will y'all. There's a ridiculous lineup of worthy entries on the docket today, and y'all will have your hands full to say the least. Jim Ross is also here to help get your week started off right. So let's get right down to it - which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. The Pitt Softball team decided to play PacMan in the background while their coach was being interviewed (h/t @LouProspectsFou).

This is some sensational choreography. The best part is how the coach is completely unfazed by what's going on around her. Speaking of our friends at Pitt...

2. Someone should really prevent college football coaches from being on Twitter.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="pl" dir="ltr">WPIAL <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/MyNewFavPic?src=hash">#MyNewFavPic</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/WheresWaldo?src=hash">#WheresWaldo</a> <a href="http://t.co/czu5vZH4ci">pic.twitter.com/czu5vZH4ci</a></p>&mdash; Coach Harley (@robharley34) <a href="https://twitter.com/robharley34/status/600362547217375232">May 18, 2015</a></blockquote>

Seriously, coach Harley, stop these stupid photoshops that Joker Phillips started perpetuating.

3. Someone at the Fayetteville Bed Bath and Beyond had trouble spelling "Wake Forrest" (h/t @bullard_).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="und" dir="ltr"><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a> <a href="http://t.co/oBpaxrXNIR">pic.twitter.com/oBpaxrXNIR</a></p>&mdash; Bullard (@Bullard_) <a href="https://twitter.com/Bullard_/status/600418778908925952">May 18, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

It's spelled correctly right on the form!! Come on, y'all. That's pitiful.

4. Noted below-the-belt-puncher Chris Paul tried to tackle Dwight Howard (h/t @ohholybutt and @SBNation).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">GIVE ME MY TOY BACK: <a href="https://t.co/xAnN2rOh08">https://t.co/xAnN2rOh08</a></p>&mdash; OHB (@ohholybutt) <a href="https://twitter.com/ohholybutt/status/600060285265833984">May 17, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

The whole "hack-a-Shaq" premise has gotten completely out of control in the NBA, as well evidenced by this vine here. Paul was jumping all over Howard's back as soon as the free throw was attempted so the refs would call the foul. It's a smart strategy, as Howard went on to miss both free throws, but good lord did Paul look like an idiot while doing this. The fine folks over at SBNation added Pony by Ginuwine to the track, and it's absolutely incredible:

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

5. Buzz Williams ain't got time for you fools and your selfie requests...he's IN THE GYM!!

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="und" dir="ltr"><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a> <a href="http://t.co/a4wip8Tc0t">pic.twitter.com/a4wip8Tc0t</a></p>&mdash; Will Thompson (@thrillis4) <a href="https://twitter.com/thrillis4/status/599189452716670976">May 15, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

I snagged this screenshot in case it was ever deleted, but man is this exchange glorious. Buzz is the gift that keeps on giving.

6. Penn State apparently thinks Boston College is in Pittsburgh (h/t @Sta7ic).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">.<a href="https://twitter.com/PennStateMBB">@PennStateMBB</a> deleted tweet showing the Pittsburgh skyline to promote their game. Too bad screenshots never die <a href="http://t.co/3QcFjDnrr1">pic.twitter.com/3QcFjDnrr1</a></p>&mdash; JD Schroeder (@Sta7ic) <a href="https://twitter.com/Sta7ic/status/598561717094895616">May 13, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

Like, who spent all this time designing this graphic without realizing..."Hey, that's the Pittsburgh skyline...not Boston." Nobody thought to check before tweeting that out? Lawd.

7. Noted below-the-belt-puncher Chris Paul quotes Ricky Bobby after game 7 loss (h/t @LBSports).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Chris Paul quotes Ricky Bobby after game 7 loss <a href="https://t.co/VK4xLutvPZ">https://t.co/VK4xLutvPZ</a></p>&mdash; Larry Brown (@LBSports) <a href="https://twitter.com/LBSports/status/600072605014564864">May 17, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

Welp, I guess you're last then, Paul.

8. Former UVA Coach Dave Leitao sings during the 7th Inning Stretch at a Cubs game (h/t @ACCSports).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Former UVa head coach Dave Leitao sings the seventh inning stretch today at Wrigley Field <a href="http://t.co/lCi5gLA45b">pic.twitter.com/lCi5gLA45b</a></p>&mdash; ACCSports.com (@ACCSports) <a href="https://twitter.com/ACCSports/status/598947471142825985">May 14, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

I haven't been able to find video of this, so if someone has it, post the link in the comments. But this is still hilarious, notwithstanding the fact that Leitao is back at DePaul, because re-hiring coaches that have left or were fired always turns out for the best, right?

And now, for your moment of wrasslin'...

THE JIM ROSS BAH GAWD MOMENT OF THE WEEK!!

The wrasslin' legend is back with some commentary on a few clips this week! First, he examines that split that Harrison Barnes took:
