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

So we've got a short but sweet #goacc week here y'all. Think of it as the calm before the storm of the college football season hitting. Of course, last week was anything but calm, and despite an incredible field of entries, P.J. Hairston's mom's GoFundMe page ran away in a landslide victory. I don' think we'll see something win by quite that large of a margin this week, but that'll be up to y'all! We've also got a special Jim Ross BAH GAWD moment for y'all as well this week. And with that, it's time to vote - which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. This picture of Philip Rivers is utterly spectacular (h/t @SBNation).

Rivers has been known for some of the sensational faces he's made during his (Ron Jaworski voice) NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE career, but this one has to be in the top five. Of course, nothing will top this insane GIF:

This GIF will forever make me laugh every damn time. Speaking of former Wolfpack quarterbacks...

2. So how's Mike Glennon doing in Tampa these days? (h/t @BucsBrief).

Not great, Bob! Poor Mike needs to be on a different team stat.


3. I am stupefied that this Louisville helmet is real (h/t @charlie_burris).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-conversation="none" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">What is this, a CFL team? <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/StopAdidas2015?src=hash">#StopAdidas2015</a> <a href="http://t.co/3kZQFrrJV4">pic.twitter.com/3kZQFrrJV4</a></p>&mdash; Charlie Burris (@Charlie_Burris) <a href="https://twitter.com/Charlie_Burris/status/633098694678695936">August 17, 2015</a></blockquote>

I saw this image popup about three or so weeks ago in an article that I think Jason Kirk did on SBN, and I'll be honest, I thought it was 100% photoshopped. I mean, there is literally nothing terrifying about a Cardinal whatsoever. Adidas turned their toothy grinned bird into some sort of red frankenstein bird with raptor talons and good lord that is the silliest damn helmet ever. Let's move on.

4. Austin Rivers has some thoughts about the Team USA tryouts that happened last week.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Straight up better than a lot of those dudes playing last night.....&#10;Have to prove that this year. M.o.a.M &#10;MIP.....why not</p>&mdash; Austin Rivers (@AustinRivers25) <a href="https://twitter.com/AustinRivers25/status/632209897510293504">August 14, 2015</a></blockquote>

Oh, oh really Austin? Well, let's take a look back at some of your play from the NBA playoffs:

Yeah.................about that.

5. The Pack's football crootin' letters have an interesting football attendance number (h/t @woodywhitehurst).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I&#39;m not sure how NC State can send this out in recruiting mail and think it will be taken seriously. <a href="http://t.co/Rw90CPekE6">pic.twitter.com/Rw90CPekE6</a></p>&mdash; Woody Whitehurst (@woodywhitehurst) <a href="https://twitter.com/woodywhitehurst/status/631168504008454144">August 11, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

I completely disagree with Woody's assessment of our beloved Carter-Finley, which is a tremendous venue for football, but I find it sort of funny that one of State's coaches was off on the stadium's capacity by about five thousand.

6. Clemson is selling hats that look like Howard's Rock (h/t @MichaelBorkey).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Clemson, why? <a href="http://t.co/9hbw2NmDsN">pic.twitter.com/9hbw2NmDsN</a></p>&mdash; Michael Borkey (@MichaelBorkey) <a href="https://twitter.com/MichaelBorkey/status/633630414398181376">August 18, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

Why indeed, Clemson. Why indeed.

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

THE JIM ROSS BAH GAWD MOMENT OF THE WEEK!!

So good ol' JR is off this week, but, we've still got something special in store for you. Our neighbors over in Chapel Hill seem to be stuck in this perpetual purgatory of NCAA violations, which lead to countless columns from the media. Well, think of this as a visual depiction of how UNC must feel every time a Dan Kane column drops. Enjoy!

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">BAH GAWD KING!! THAT&#39;S DAN KANE&#39;S MUSIC!!! <a href="http://t.co/idDKAlSPcR">pic.twitter.com/idDKAlSPcR</a></p>&mdash; Will Thompson (@thrillis4) <a href="https://twitter.com/thrillis4/status/632652970405052418">August 15, 2015</a></blockquote>

See y'all next week!
