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

"Hey, up top! I didn't drop it!"
"Hey, up top! I didn't drop it!"

What a hell of a week we had last week, y'all. We've got our first likely number one seed for the #goacc tournament, with Ryan Switzer hilariously not being caught by teammates after scoring a touchdown being the absolute run away winner, receiving 65% of over 350 votes! Hopefully we'll continue that tremendous turnout again this week, as we've got another fantastic lineup of #goacc for y'all to vote on. And as always, our good buddy JR is back to provide his weekly commentary. So let's get right down to it - which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. This punt attempt from Georgia Tech summed up their no good, very bad day in Durham.

The only other thing that could be added to this vine would be the Benny Hill theme. Good grief.

2. Meet Wake Forest's EXTREME COACH (h/t @coachsil).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Not a more intense coach in the <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/ACC?src=hash">#ACC</a> than <a href="https://twitter.com/CoachSantucci">@CoachSantucci</a>! 30 minutes until kickoff. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/GoDeacs?src=hash">#GoDeacs</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/BeatIU?src=hash">#BeatIU</a> <a href="http://t.co/6JsVBvpfAG">pic.twitter.com/6JsVBvpfAG</a></p>&mdash; Asil Mulbah (@CoachSil) <a href="https://twitter.com/CoachSil/status/647802172843905024">September 26, 2015</a></blockquote>

This seems a bit excessive. I dunno how that happened, but a coach's forehead should probably not be bleeding before a game. But you know, on the other hand, maybe Coach Santucci is a really big fan of the Sparrows from Game of Thrones.

3. Harrison Barnes nearly dropped the Larry O'Brien trophy while showing it off at the UNC football game (h/t @WillBrinson).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Harrison Barnes almost dropped the O&#39;Brien Trophy on his head <a href="https://t.co/LONX4PYFzC">https://t.co/LONX4PYFzC</a></p>&mdash; Will Brinson (@WillBrinson) <a href="https://twitter.com/WillBrinson/status/647821034826125312">September 26, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

Yeah, probably good to not drop that one. That trophy's probably a weeeeeee bit expensive.

4. Apparently Pitt had a game Monday nobody knew about (h/t @SWernerPG).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Heinz Field scoreboard says Pitt just got a first down. Did I miss some Monday afternoon game? <a href="http://t.co/4xR9GGV0jX">pic.twitter.com/4xR9GGV0jX</a></p>&mdash; Sam Werner (@SWernerPG) <a href="https://twitter.com/SWernerPG/status/648620260543885312">September 28, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

If Pitt picked up a first down, and nobody was there to see it, did it really happen?

5. Frank Beamer called East Carolina an exhibition opponent....after losing to them (h/t @CFTalk).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Frank Beamer said playing East Carolina was an exhibition game <a href="http://t.co/U1b8dNlJYT">http://t.co/U1b8dNlJYT</a></p>&mdash; CollegeFootballTalk (@CFTalk) <a href="https://twitter.com/CFTalk/status/648210482738827264">September 27, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

Look, I appreciate throwing shade at that school in Greenville as much as anybody, but right after losing to them? That takes stones, Frank.

6. UVA opened up their loss to Boise State by throwing this hilarious pick (h/t @YahooDrSaturday).

<blockquote class="twitter-video" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Not a great start for Virginia against Boise State as Matt Johns throws a terrible pick six on the first play <a href="http://t.co/t3Gaskm7eM">pic.twitter.com/t3Gaskm7eM</a></p>&mdash; Dr. Saturday (@YahooDrSaturday) <a href="https://twitter.com/YahooDrSaturday/status/647562702684950528">September 26, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

Let this be on the headstone that sums up the Mike London Era when he is inevitably let go after this season.


7. Georgia Tech's flag guy had some issues after the Yellow Jackets scored a touchdown.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">GT flag guy struggling a bit <a href="https://t.co/9MAUNU628A">https://t.co/9MAUNU628A</a></p>&mdash; Will Thompson (@thrillis4) <a href="https://twitter.com/thrillis4/status/647824389090734080">September 26, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

I seriously lose it every time I watch this when he puts his back into it. Bruh, it was pouring rain that day. Maybe leave the giant as hell flag on the sidelines and just run around the endzone instead.

8. This dancing Syracuse fan (h/t @Sportscenter).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Syracuse might be losing, but this guy is still happy. <a href="https://t.co/YLJEYnGVoE">https://t.co/YLJEYnGVoE</a></p>&mdash; SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) <a href="https://twitter.com/SportsCenter/status/647856928014659585">September 26, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

"Hey guys we didn't get trounced by LSU let's dance!!!"

9. Let's check in on Philip Rivers this season! (h/t @World_Wide_Wob).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Phillip Rivers, Professional Football Player&#10;&#10;<a href="https://t.co/JxUKDEZzXe">https://t.co/JxUKDEZzXe</a></p>&mdash; Rob Perez (@World_Wide_Wob) <a href="https://twitter.com/World_Wide_Wob/status/648192450276691968">September 27, 2015</a></blockquote>

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

You can move on from the ACC, Philip, but #goacc never leaves you.

10. Chris Bosh remains so, so hilariously awkward (h/t @CorkGaines).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">!! What&#39;s the opposite of a Chris Bosh videobomb? Bosh not realizing his interview is over <a href="https://t.co/CC87tz1z3e">https://t.co/CC87tz1z3e</a></p>&mdash; Dr Cork Gaines (@CorkGaines) <a href="https://twitter.com/CorkGaines/status/648628765031985152">September 28, 2015</a></blockquote>

This is just the best. It's like an old cartoon where someone tries to slink offscreen. Incredible.

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

THE JIM ROSS BAH GAWD MOMENT OF THE WEEK!!

So chances are if you watched the NFL over the weekend, you probably saw the incident at the St. Louis Rams game. Well, our good buddy JR obtained some enhanced footage as to what really caused the turf to catch fire:
