Absolutely. The regular season trophy is the inferior/optional one.


The ACC Champion trophy has been awarded every year we have had a conference. The Regular Season Champ trophy is the recent one with less heritage and importance to the league (right or wrong).

So there would have been a declared ACC Champ no matter what, because the alternative would be to not have a champ for the first time ever. Since we had to have an AQ anyway, declaring no champ would have just been spitting in the eye of one team.

And there would have been 4 regular season trophies, which have always been 'nice job' affairs anyway so having 4 of them wouldn't matter. There is already precedent for handing those out in multiples.
