It's that time yet again, folks. The committee of one has assembled a tremendous bracket of some #goacc legends from the past 12 months, and BTP's 3rd annual #goacc Tournament of Champions I think will be the best yet. Most of these I think you will instantly recognize, and some of these early round matchups are going to be some absolutely difficult decisions.
You should see a poll just below here which is a bit different than our standard #goacc posts. It really has to do with for some reason SurveyMonkey didn't want to embed correctly at the bottom of the page, so as Akula told me the other night, our own tournament experienced #goacc. All you need to do is scroll past the poll, review the entries, then use the links at the bottom of the page to return to the top and vote.
We're going to start with the aptly named Page 145 Regional, because Page 145 as the top overall seed in our tournament is essentially undefeated. I'm not sure even the #goacc legend Frank Beamer could defeat Page 145.
Without further ado, it's time to vote! If you haven't voted for the other regionals, you can use the Storystream link on the right hand side of the page to access the other regionals.
THE PAGE 145 REGIONAL OPENING ROUND

Come on, do I need even need to explain who you gotta vote for here? Page145 might be one of the funniest things I've ever come across while reviewing all things #goacc. While I appreciate anything related to Sharknado, this will not be the first 16 seed to defeat a 1 seed.
8. Louisville player heads to wrong bench
9. Miami football is afraid of first downs
first downs are bad https://t.co/odSSae2o5A— Jon Bois (@jon_bois) October 24, 2015
Our first 8 vs 9 matchup in the Page 145 Regional is a bit of a coin flip, at least in my opinion. Both involve players heading in the wrong direction in completely different sports. I could see either of these moving on to the round of 32.
5. Jabari Parker gets clowned by Chris Paul and Blake Griffin
12. UNC fan sends dumb email to Andrew Carter
Great stuff here lol https://t.co/C7pPlzRdyf— Duke Blogger (@Dukeblogger) July 15, 2015
Someone help my man out. It's early yet on a Sunday ... pic.twitter.com/IjhvOQInHv— Andrew Carter (@_andrewcarter) October 25, 2015
Now, here we have a matchup that could end with the dreaded 5 vs 12 upset. The video of Jabari getting owned as a rookie by Chris Paul and Blake Griffin is pretty amazing, but that email is coming into the tournament hot, and man, is that an alltimer. Some might argue that email is seeded too low, but hey, how else can I make hilarious matchups?
4. Frank Beamer dabbing
13. Pitt basketball team singing Adele in the airport

The champ from last year's #goacc Tournament of Champions, Frank Beamer is back and has a strong presence yet again in this year's tournament. You didn't think he'd go into retirement from #goacc without a bang, did you? While the Pitt team's rendition of Hello is pretty hysterical, come on. There's no way Frank shouldn't move on.
3. Ryan Switzer goes up to try and get caught by a teammate, is caught by nobody
14. Kids dancing at Wake-NCSU baseball game

As intensely as those kids are dancing at that baseball game, that vine of Switzer just slays me every single time. We could be seeing that 3 seed make a deep, deep run in this tourney.
6. Duke basketball managers sprint like crazy
11. Miami's recruiting letter looks like a nightclub flyer
This matchup could end up being a lot closer than I expect it to. Ultimately I think the Duke Managers here will speed into the Round of 32, but they might get a game from that hilarious recruiting letter from the U.
7. Jameis Winston appears on a banner ad for Publix
10. Virginia Tech...HOOkies?
Jameis Winston on a Publix banner... Who did this????? pic.twitter.com/z0hFO9gZdX— Kenny Wilson (@KenWithBenefits) August 29, 2015
Another coin flip matchup, in my eyes, though the irony of Jameis appearing on a Publix banner ad should be enough to move this entry on to the second round. Let's celebrate with some crab legs!
2. That awful foul in the Wake-State basketball game
15. Marco Rubio gets called out by FSU's president
They called this a foul on Freeman. What an embarrassment of a call. Dude just missed the dunk on his own pic.twitter.com/pW0B7G1Qs3— Lon Petrini (@Lon_Petrini) February 13, 2016
Poor Marco Rubio, he's going to lose at something else, too.
