Is anybody hoping we lose the first game we play in the ACC tournament?

I promise I'm not crazy...mostly

After reading this article from SI is it hard to root for FSU this weekend?

While I believe it's possible and would be a great accomplishment for FSU to win the ACC tournament I don't realistically expect that to happen.  In the same breath I'm not holding out for more than a win or two in the NCAA tournament.

Lemire makes a good point in that the preparation time allotted to a team that bows out early in its conference tournament is a sizeable advantage.  Considering FSU is going to its first tournament appearance since Zach Morris was the only one with a cell phone the extra practice time could be very beneficial.  After all we don't want to bow out as the victim of a first round upset.

While Lemire's article is really only focused on the top seeds he does note that mid-majors often have more time to prepare, which could lead to their early round upsets.  So my question is, do we make a mockery of the ACC tournament and let loose the deadly duo of Hoff and Vanderwerff or do we go all out and let TD prove he's the real MVP on the league?
