Man did we have another incredibly close vote last week, y'all. Just by a smidge, we had the NC State Police blotter's chicken run defeat a hell of an effort by #goacc gladiator Russell Wilson. As we head to our final week of the regular season, we've got another fantastic slate of entries for y'all to vote on. We'll close with a ridiculous winner of the #suregrin award, some awesome photoshops, and a couple of BAH GAWDs! Let's get right down to it y'all. Which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!
1. Nevada vandalized NC State's basketball jerseys, probably (h/t @RL_Bynum).
Good grief, while this is just a minor typographical mistake, you'd think Adidas would have an idea by now that Wolfpack is one word for NC State. Still, I'm going to blame Nevada for this, and their ridiculous use of an extra space.
2. Apparently Maryland wants back in the ACC, part 85 (h/t @joeovies).
Seriously Maryland, enough already. You aren't coming back. Just let it go.
3. Jamie Luckie remains a tremendously terrible person (h/t @IraSchoffel).
The ACC tournament is not going to have any rogue court sweepers on Jamie Luckie's watch. pic.twitter.com/Mxje408Bq1— Ira Schoffel (@IraSchoffel) March 8, 2016
This is why the media should be able to ask refs questions after games. I would've blasted that dunce of a ref for this kind of behavior. Are there really no better refs out there where we have to constantly be stuck with that guy?
4. The media up at the ACC Tournament all got a hilarious email about an app to help them park in D.C. (h/t @joedyAP).
Um, thanks, PR flak. This is a first paragraph I never thought I’d read anywhere, much less in a press release. pic.twitter.com/FFqOFx8uN0— Joedy McCreary (@JoedyAP) March 7, 2016
This really should be the motto for next year's ACC Tournament. "The 2017 ACC Tournament in Brooklyn: You'll lose your shit."
5. WRAL posted a picture in a story about the loss to Notre Dame that included Kyle Washington...who doesn't play at State anymore (h/t @ihatelightblue).
I think Kyle is as surprised to be in this picture as we all are.
6. Boston College completed the quest for Double Perfection (h/t @ESPNCBB).
BC becomes 1st team in ACC history to go winless in both basketball & football conference play in same school year. pic.twitter.com/I7hTmOqhpk— ESPN College BBall (@ESPNCBB) March 5, 2016
This is a tough one to not include, mainly because it represents a total amalgamation of the futility of BC athletics this year. And right on cue, BC lost again yesterday, meaning they went 0-27 across Football and Basketball in the ACC. Can you imagine Packpride if that ever happened at State? Or worse, SFN? I feel like they'd go to war about it.
7. Sweet pass, Notre Dame (h/t to our own @akulawolf).
The ref was open https://t.co/WrFutnIzAh— Steven (@akulawolf) March 5, 2016
Juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuust a bit outside.
8. Tim Duncan runs into his own player, Pop laughs (h/t @SBNation).
I'm amazed that someone was actually able to make Pop laugh.
9. "The Kay Yao Award." (h/t @wmdeitrick).
This was covered a few days ago, but it warrants #goacc recognition as well. Good heavens.
the #suregrin award.
This week's award goes out to Chicago Tribune "columnist" Bernie Lincicome, who thinks that the 3 point line is bad for basketball. If you can make it through 2 paragraphs of this, you deserve your own award:
If ever there was a perfect example of the "Old Man Yells at Cloud" picture from the Simpsons, this is it.
The best photoshops of the week!
If you missed the story of Sam Dekker posting some pictures of his Houston Rockets teammate Dwight Howard, well damn did you miss a gem. Dwight apparently felt the need to do some glamour shots...which immediately got the Crying Jordan treatment:
Fantastic. Also, since the ACC Tournament is in DC, this photoshop from Weather Moose only seems appropriate:
And now, for your moment of wrasslin'...
THE JIM ROSS BAH GAWD MOMENTS OF THE WEEK!!
In case you hadn't heard, Hulk Hogan is in the midst of a lawsuit against Gawker media. Well, his first day of testimony got interrupted by an old colleague:
THE UNDERTAKER INTERRUPTS HULK HOGAN'S TRIAL BAH GAWD IN HEAVEN KING!! https://t.co/FKkVaE7CU7— Will Thompson (@thrillis4) March 8, 2016
Next thing you know Ric Flair is gonna come struttin down that aisle to testify. Moving to the NBA, the Heat Mascot decided to try and hit a swanton bomb on some fellow mascots, and he landed it perfectly:
Have a great week everyone!
