Football is back, and oh my god did that up the #goacc exponentially. I’ll be honest, we already know what’s going to win this week, but there’s still plenty of #goacc to dig into, even if the vote is likely going to be a blowout just like last week. Let’s get to votin’ y’all! Which is your #goacc moment of the week? Vote below!
1. UVA’s broadcast had some problems (via @UVAFootball)
Due to technical issues, @ESPN's web stream of the game has been interrupted. They ware working to resolve the problem.— Virginia Football (@UVAFootball) September 1, 2018
That’s ok, who honestly wanted to watch Richmond-UVA, anyway?

OK, OK! Still though this seems to happen every year with ESPN’s online platform, you’d think they would have figured it out by now.
2. Everything about this Wake Forest play was bad (via @grampsgustafson)

Look, if you’re going to throw the ball as you’re being tackled to avoid a sack, at least toss it in the direction of where the defender isn’t. This was right to the guy, lol. I didn’t catch the game so I don’t know what the outcome of this was, but Wake still won against the fighting green poop emojis so let’s move on.
3. The Willie Taggart era didn’t get off to the best start (via @yahoosportscfb and @espn)
That's really bad. That has to be reviewed regardless of how quickly FSU got to the line and tried to snap the ball.— Yahoo Sports College Football (@YahooSportsCFB) September 4, 2018
At a point during the second quarter, Florida State had a play that appeared to end with a touchdown. It’s debatable as to whether or not the plane was broken, but the play absolutely should’ve been reviewed, whether it was initiated by the booth or by Taggart himself. Instead, FSU rushed to the line to try and run a play and got tagged with a false start, and effectively ruined any chance of scoring a TD.
But wait, there’s more! Just when you thought it couldn’t go any worse for the ‘Noles, Beamerball struck like an RKO outta nowhere:

Brutal. Absolutely brutal. Speaking of season openers that didn’t go well...
4. UNC’s first half against Cal was one of the worst offensive performances you’ll ever see (via @tomfornelli)

Here were the drives for UNC against Cal in the first half:
- Interception for Touchdown
- End of Half
Nothing more to say except that’s about as putrid as it gets.

Look I know this has been covered extensively both here on BTP and on SBNation itself, but how can I not include this for #goacc? Just absolutely tremendous.
