We study expectation values related to the dynamical lattice spacing that occurs in the recent supersymmetric 2d lattice Yang-Mills constructions of Cohen et al. [hep-lat/0307012]. For the purposes of this preliminary analysis, we restrict our attention to the bosonic part of that theory. That is, we compute observables in the fully quenched ensemble, equivalent to non-supersymmetric 2d lattice Yang-Mills with a dynamical lattice spacing and adjoint scalars. Our numerical simulations indicate

In an effort to understand these results, we examine the zero action configurations, with and without the deformation. Based on these considerations, we are able to interpret the simulation results in terms of entropic effects.
