Folks, we had some tremendous turnout last week here, and many of you decided that the now former candidate for UNC Student Body president's decision to quit the race to date someone on Tinder was the run away winner. Certainly, that was a worthy winner. Moving on to this week, we've even more wild entries for y'all to vote on, and I think you'll have a tough time selecting a winner with this batch. As always, we'll close with the #suregrin award, some hilarious photoshops, and a BAH GAWD. Let's not waste anymore time, y'all have a tough decision this week! Which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. ESPN really struggling with their chyrons these days.

To be fair, I'm sure John Swofford would love to poach Kansas from the Big XII, but good lord that's just not even close, ESPN.

2. The NC State police blotter featured an interesting line item this past weekend.

There's so much more I want to know here. Did they bid on something on eBay, win it, then report it to the cops after it wasn't delivered in a timely manner? Did they get sent the complete wrong item? We need more info, Blottbot!

3. N&O beat writer Andrew Carter took the temperature of BC Basketball (h/t @_andrewcarter).

Basketball fever has hit Boston everyone!

4. ESPN thinks NC State beat Duke earlier this year (h/t @rwwilmington).

Definitely would've liked for that to have been the case, ESPN, but alas.

5. Steve Addazio runs off on the plug twice after getting a 'croot to commit (h/t @BCFootballVideo).

This is a strong early start for claiming the #goacc mantle from the retiring Frank Beamer.

6. Digger Phelps' reaction to Red Panda is spectacular (h/t @collegegameday).

That's definitely the face of someone that's never experienced Red Panda's performance before.

7. Virginia Tech completely ripped off NC State's recruiting marketing gimmick.

Listen, I know you're new around here, Coach Fuente, but Virginia refers to itself as the Commonwealth, and the word "State" isn't part of Virginia Polytechnic Institute, sooooooo......yeah. Might want to work on a new campaign.

8. Russell Wilson remains hilariously awkward around Ciara (h/t @adammcginnis).

Do you think he used Google Bing to look up how to lightly caress his girlfriend's hair?

the #suregrin award.

This week's winner goes out to ABC, and literally anyone that was involved with putting on the last Republican debate in New Hampshire. Seriously, just watch this total and complete cluster:

This is just some absolutely amazing television, y'all.

The best photoshops of the week!

We've got a special valentines edition of a Crying Jordan meme this week, courtesy of @Nick_Pants:

Also, @Darth came up with some new phenomenal campaign slogans for Ted Cruz:

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


After Aqib Talib tried to rip the head off of Philly Brown in the Super Bowl, Randy Orton wanted a little payback:

Have a great week everyone!
