Well, I think we can all agree that we need to just forget this past weekend even happened, right? Let’s move on entirely from that and enjoy some #goacc, which was just as hysterical as ever. Last week we had an incredibly close vote, with the UNC fan wearing Duke Blue face paint winning by just a single vote. Truth be told, we may see a similar outcome this week, too - this is a hell of a lineup and I’m not sure who is going to win. We’ll close as usual with a #suregrin winner, a great photoshop and as always, some wisdom from the world of wrasslin’.
1. Oh...oh no, Ray-Ray McCloud.
How, HOW does this keep happening year after year? Just keep holding the ball!! Once you cross the endzone with the ball, the play is over!
2. This Syracuse fan is FIRED UP ABOUT ESPN YEAHHH!
I’ve got nothing more to add here, other than the fact that this guy should probably chill out. Wonder if he just randomly walks places and screams acronyms of broadcast or cable networks.
"Hi welcome to Panera Bread can I take your order?"
"WOOOOOO WRAL TV-5 YEAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!"
3. This FSU fan became an overnight Internet meme.
This poor guy’s face has been memed and re-memed to death, but you will never find a more perfect picture to encapsulate that feeling of "I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed." Fortunately for him, FSU came back to win the game. Speaking of Internet memes...
4. Dave Doeren gets the Mr. Krabs meme treatment.

Even if you’re not familiar with the Mr. Krabs meme, you can pretty easily deduce what’s going on here. I touched on this in the podcast, but poor Dave here looks like he’s about to sweat out an actual waterfall and/or cry. This is the face of someone who just lost to ECU and realizes the pressure is ratcheting up.
5. Is Russell Wilson starting to crack?
Let’s look at this in a freeze frame:
Hmmm.........where have I seen this face before?
6. FSU’s backup QB JJ Cosentino’s first snap of 2016 led to a fumble and safety.
Not sure one can have a worse first snap of the season than that. Good gracious.
7. This Vols’ fan sign about VT is a big swing and a miss.
There is no there there. pic.twitter.com/GkvDwENvKo— Jeff Fischel (@JeffFischel) September 10, 2016
I believe the phrase the kids would use towards this fan is, "DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT."
8. Deshone Kizer has an epic reaction on Twitter.
Agreed, Travis. This is incredible.
9. Is anyone in the BC athletic department even trying anymore?
So I go to the official Boston College site, click on the connect w Twitter button, and it leads me here: https://t.co/LWDmKVvECd— Michael Rogner (@TN_Hoops) September 12, 2016
Go ahead, click on that supposed official twitter account for Boston College Sports. Does that look official to you?
10. Virginia Tech is going to be the recipient of burritos delivered by drones.
If ever there was a test market for a place for burritos to be delivered by a drone, a college campus is certainly it. Every Sunday in Blacksburg when students are ineveitably hungover, you’re gonna see a horde of drones buzzing overhead dropping burritos everywhere. If this existed when I was at State except with Chinese food, I might’ve gained 100 lbs.
the #suregrin award.
Lot of worthy winners this week, but first, a SPECIAL shoutout goes to ESPN for their absolute garbage fantasy football app. I realize this is the epitome of #firstworldproblems, but if you’re going to have an app for fantasy football, it might help to have that working on the first day of the NFL season, ESPN. Just sayin’. At any rate, Cal Hardee had a really great solution to fix that blasted app:
I've tried everything at this point to get the ESPN Fantasy app to work... pic.twitter.com/pk5TzeadWY— Cal Hardee (@CALhardee) September 11, 2016
That’s a next level reference with a throwback to the days of blowing on Nintendo Entertainment System cartridges to get them to work combined with the time Lance Stephenson blew in LeBron’s ear. Great stuff here.
But moving on, what in the sweet hell is wrong with you, Darren Rovell?
I can’t. I just can’t here.
The best photoshop of the week!
In case you hadn’t heard, Super Mario is going to be a downloadable game for iOS devices soon. Shortly after the announcement at the Apple conference, Dave Itzkoff posted this absolutely incredible photoshop:
Finally, a Super Mario game for iOS pic.twitter.com/kXzJp4Bctj— Dave Itzkoff (@ditzkoff) September 7, 2016
Toad’s going to make Mario read 87 pages of Terms and Conditions before he tells him that the Princess is in another castle. What a jerk.
And now, for your moment of wrasslin’...
THE JIM ROSS BAH GAWD MOMENT OF THE WEEK!!
If there was one great moment from the ECU loss, it had to have been Reggie Gallaspy’s monster TD run. Without further ado, take it away, JR!
See y’all next week!
