We’re finally getting #goacc season ramped back up, y’all. I’ll be honest, unlike the past two seasons, the offseason this year has been a bit sparse in terms of #goacc material. Never fear though, we’re back this week with some hilarious moments from ACC Kickoff, and more. We’ll close with the mocking of yet another worthy #suregrin winner, and as always, some wisdom from the world of wrasslin’. Let’s get right down to the vote. Which is your #goacc Moment of the Week? Vote below!

1. Kyrie Irving wears a bracelet with a very blunt statement (h/t @JordanHeckFF).

I suppose that’s strong advice, yes. We should all strive to not be a little bitch.

2. A fire alarm went off during ACC Kickoff interviews, and nobody moved (h/t @joeovies).

Gotta get that content created, fire drills be damned!

3. Brandon Ingram said he never missed a FT in high school. About that...(h/t @SBNation).

What an odd thing to claim, because surely he had to have known someone was going to go fact check such a ridiculous statement.

4. Virginia Tech came up with a bingo board to play at ACC Kickoff.

Loved that they included coachspeak as some of the options, pointing out some of the dumb platitudes that coaches have to say at these sorts of media events. Well played, VT. The Fuente era is off to a good #goacc start, but let’s be honest - he’s got some big shoes to fill if he wants to reach Beamer status in terms of #goacc.

5. Ben Boulware had some hilarious reactions to the VR setup at ACC Kickoff (h/t @theACCDN).

Y’all, this is too much. There are some great other videos from the ACC DN up on their twitter feed too, so check them out.

6. Russell Wilson continues to remain weird as hell (h/t @armstrongabc11).

Just........sigh. He’s gotta lay off the nanobubbles.

the #suregrin award.

This week’s goes out to ECU’s absurdly thirsty move of practically begging the Big 12 to accept them as an expansion member. Akula touched on this earlier, but for the love of God just look at this:

It looks like the state of NC is urinating on all of the other Big 12 members. That’s not exactly going to inspire the Big 12 to bring y’all in, Pirates.

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


Truth be told, I wasn’t able to get a clip edited in time for this week’s post. However, Deadspin put together a prospectus of Stone Cold Stunners, and it’s well worth your time:

Hell, it’s worth it just for this insane compilation video they posted from YouTube of just about every stunner imaginable (this video is almost 30 minutes long lol).

Have a great week everyone!
