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

"I call this the shopping cart."

Unsurprisingly, y'all overwhelmingly voted for that atrocious foul call in the Wake-NC State game last week. That truly was one of the worst foul calls by any official I've ever seen. Moving on to this week, y'all have a DOOZY of a vote on your hands. Seriously, I think y'all will enjoy this one immensely. We've also got a ridiculous #suregrin award winner, some hilarious photoshops, and a couple of BAH GAWDS that I think y'all will love. Let's get right down to it - which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. The ACC thought it used a picture of the US Capitol on its promotional materials for the 2016 ACC Tournament. They were wrong (h/t @dcsportsblog).

That is actually St. Paul's Cathedral in London! Who's up for some ACC Basketball, then a trip to a corner pub? I say let's expand the footprint ACROSS THE POND SWOFFORD!!

2. Miami basketball with a couple of hilarious fails in their last two games (h/t @ArmstrongABC11 and @RobDauster).

Yeah, I know y'all beat UVA, Canes fans, but I'm not letting you sneak away without that horrendous layup attempt going unnoticed.

3. Former FSU Football player Myron Rolle came to an important epiphany.

Yes, let's not drop the newborns during your rotation Myron!!

4. Boston College might be the worst division I team in the country (h/t @MarkEnnis and @BCHysteria).

Honestly, how BC can keep Jim Christian is beyond any level of comprehension I have. They are brutally bad, and I'm fairly certain a few high school teams could beat them. Seriously, a coach was practically half asleep on their sidelines during that same game:

It got so bad during this Wake game, that the official Boston College basketball account just stopped tweeting:

Poor Eagles fans.

5. Old grumpy UNC fans perfectly personify the Wine and Cheese crowd nickname (h/t @DemetriRavanos).

I have nothing more to add to this. Everything about this picture is just so perfect.

6. Play between Syracuse and Pittsburgh was interrupted because a cheerleader left a sign on the court (h/t @BR_Syracuse).

LOL at the shade that ref threw the cheerleaders as he was carrying that sign off the court. Honestly though, I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often.

7. After UNC lost to Duke, a UNC football player tweeted that they were now a football school.

I'm actually amazed this tweet is still up on twitter dot com. Can't believe someone at UNC hasn't forced Mr. Jones to delete this. If you feel adventurous, look at some of the replies to his tweet.

8. This is the most #WelcomeTo2016 moment of the year so far (h/t @bzcohen).

We're acknowledging bitmojis on air. WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE.

9. Grayson Allen ain't too pleased about that call, ref (h/t @TwillieStein).

Allen actually one of the few players to receive 6 fouls in a single game this season (he was whistled for a technical after dropping that F bomb).

10. This ref decided to emphatically kick during his foul call motion (h/t @nolte).

What the damn hell was the point of that? Even TV Teddy is confused.

the #suregrin award.

An entire team is going to win this week's award. That's right, I'm acknowledging the entire New York Yankees club for this following tweet:

You want all of your players to be soulless robots that Google Bing how to talk to girls, and post nonsense about #nanobubbles? Or, do you want them to have so much passion for winning that they just despite losing with every fiber of their being? Given how terrible the Yankees have been lately, maybe consider being more like Cam instead of Russell.

The best photoshops of the week!

First, going back to that grumpy old UNC couple, you know damn well they were going to get hit with the Crying Jordan treatment, and Andrew here was up to the task:

Next, if you were like me and saw Monday Night Raw this week, you noticed that 1) Shane McMahon returned, and 2) Jim Harbaugh was there. Well, the fantastic Nick Pants put this together for your enjoyment:

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

THE JIM ROSS BAH GAWD MOMENTS OF THE WEEK!!

Let's start with the Lady Wolfpack, who once again defeated UNC this season, and I feel like this vine ultimately sums up how things in general have gone for UNC this season:

Next, the Pack Wrestling team's tremendous victory over Iowa on the road called for some special JR treatment as well:

Have a great week everyone! BEAT UNC!!
