Look, we are the first fan base to thump our chest about regular season

titles. There's no indignity in this. Florida State was absolutely a worthy champion. Leonard Hamilton is a fantastic coach, they have a very good program, and last year, they were the best from start to finish in the ACC. We finished strong and yes, won a game against them toward the end. But we weren't the best from start to finish and even in a strong finish, played an exceptionally large number of very close games. There's no shame here, and there's no reason why they shouldn't hang a banner. Hell, we've done it even when there is an ACC tournament. Yes the tournament didn't get played, and yes the ACC says the winner of the tournament is the champion. But the entire regular season was played, and Florida State was alone in first at the end. Sounds like a champion to me.
