My link below explains it, but cliffs notes are this:

ACC needs an auto qualifier. Rulebook says, if tourney doesn't finish, AQ is the highest seed remaining.

Rulebook also says the ACC champion is the team that wins the tourney. I can't find anything that says, if the tourney doesn't finish, the ACC champion is the highest remaining seed.

The fact that the rulebook contemplates the AQ scenario if the tourney doesn't finish, but doesn't contemplate the question of who is the ACC tourney winner if the tourney doesn't finish, suggests to me that there should have been no ACC champion.

Nobody is squabbling over FSU being regular season champion, but that's not the trophy they're being handed there...

(If anybody finds a rule to the contrary, I will--quite unhappily-- admit I was wrong).
