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

"No, Stephen Colbert is NOT funny!"
"No, Stephen Colbert is NOT funny!"

Coming as a surprise to nobody, the Stone Cold Stunner that took place during a Miami graduation won convincingly over some pretty stiff competition last week. To be honest y'all, there's really only one winner for this week, and most of you have probably already seen it. To be fair, we've got some other "participant" entries to choose from, but they don't stand a chance against this titanic contestant. We've also got our friend Jim Ross back this week, who watched another episode of Game of Thrones as well as some soccer. Enough chat - it's time to vote. Which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. Georgia Tech and Boston College are opening the 2016 football season in Ireland (h/t @SInow).

I'm not sure any amount of Jameson or Guinness would be enough to make me watch that game.


2. At least one FSU fan thinks of NC State as their "raval" (h/t @lebrownlow).

<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/w6IKVhpRRp">pic.twitter.com/w6IKVhpRRp</a></p>&mdash; Lauren Brownlow (@lebrownlow) <a href="https://twitter.com/lebrownlow/status/606496106646798338">June 4, 2015</a></blockquote>

This is hilarious in so many ways. #FSUTwitter never ceases to amaze me.

Also, if you haven't read Lauren Brownlow's hysterical column over on FoxSports about manufactured rivalries in College Football, definitely check that out.

3. Stephen Colbert poked fun at Wake Forest's football team at their commencement address, which did not sit well with Dave Clawson (h/t @espn).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Stephen Colbert took a shot at Wake Forest football while on campus. The coach was not amused: <a href="http://t.co/fjvde6BLV7">http://t.co/fjvde6BLV7</a> <a href="http://t.co/jkzcJPpymo">pic.twitter.com/jkzcJPpymo</a></p>&mdash; ESPN (@espn) <a href="https://twitter.com/espn/status/606512218100908032">June 4, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

Wait for it....wait for it.....BURRRRRRNNNNNNNNN!!!!!! So yeah, Clawson was none too pleased, and went on that insufferable know it all's David Glenn's radio show to air his grievance with Colbert:

"You invite someone like that, and I’m sure they paid him a fairly healthy sum to be our speaker, and it was not needed and not appreciated,” Clawson told Glenn.

Hold on, let me get out my tiny violin to play the saddest of tunes for you, Dave. Laugh it off you dolt.

4. Stop stupid custom license plates, people (h/t @NCSU_99_17_24).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Not enough room for Wake Forest....<a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/goacc?src=hash">#goacc</a> <a href="http://t.co/B579j7mZCn">pic.twitter.com/B579j7mZCn</a></p>&mdash; CLT_Wolf (@NCSU_99_17_24) <a href="https://twitter.com/NCSU_99_17_24/status/607546728967856128">June 7, 2015</a></blockquote>

I thought that infamous UNC State was bad, but DUNCState? Just stop y'all.

5. Hey, Charles Shackleford isn't the only one now! (h/t @NeillWoelk).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Favorite headline of week. He pitches righty, lefty — and evidently, also underwater.

...........sigh.

6. Just....no, Virginia Tech. Just no.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Welcome to <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/SACKSburg?src=hash">#SACKSburg</a>&#10;&#10;Since 1996, <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Hokies?src=hash">#Hokies</a> lead nation with 723 sacks! &#10;&#10;USC a distant second w 696 <a href="http://t.co/KdWtraGmlm">pic.twitter.com/KdWtraGmlm</a></p>&mdash; VT Football (@VT_Football) <a href="https://twitter.com/VT_Football/status/608304565046288385">June 9, 2015</a></blockquote>

That's almost as bad as the time Beamer celebrated a 0-0 overtime score.

7. NC State football players dance to Taylor Swift's "Shake it off!" (h/t @PackFootball).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Hey <a href="https://twitter.com/taylorswift13">@TaylorSwift13</a> we did THIS to get you to come see us when you&#39;re in town tomorrow! <a href="https://t.co/mSO3LoTHbY">https://t.co/mSO3LoTHbY</a> <a href="http://t.co/h2apnYX26p">pic.twitter.com/h2apnYX26p</a></p>&mdash; NC State Football (@PackFootball) <a href="https://twitter.com/PackFootball/status/607946691803795456">June 8, 2015</a></blockquote>

As I mentioned above, can't see anyway this doesn't run away with the vote this week. Just watch this video, there's so much to take in here:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/jUdl9p8jLsY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

For the first part of the video, I can't stop laughing at that one player that refuses to dance or even sing the song. It's so awkwardly amazing. Then, the peak dad dancing from the player on the far left is just sensational. All around A+ y'all.

And now, for your moment of wrasslin...

THE JIM ROSS BAH GAWD MOMENT(s) OF THE WEEK!!!

Good ol' JR had so much fun watching Game of Thrones last week, he decided to tune in again!

<iframe src="https://vine.co/v/eMVKWUEIpqm/embed/simple" width="600" height="600" frameborder="0"></iframe><script src="https://platform.vine.co/static/scripts/embed.js"></script>

I would've wanted to get out of there too, JR with that crazy masked mob trying to stab everyone. Good thing Drogon showed up to lay out everyone with dragon stunners. Next, JR decided to take in a soccer game and things escalated quickly (props to Chris Hathcock for sending me this vine):

See y'all next week!
