Hollow Title

"Congratulations, you've won NOTHING."

That is what I want to say to the many coaches, players, and particularly sports writers, when they refer to a team winning the ACC regular season championship. There is no such thing.

The only title to be won in the ACC is the conference championship, and that goes to the winner of the season-ending tournament. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of good reasons to try to finish first during the regular season, they just don't include winning a title.

And don't get me started on the schools that hang banners for this fictitious title.
