Big East bashing palpable as Notre Dame pummeled by Florida State

Perhaps it was because it was buried late on a Sunday night, or maybe it was just because the Irish shot 32 percent from the floor and got a dismal output from their star, Ben Hansbrough.

Either way, the real second round of the NCAA Tournament concluded with the 9th Big East team exiting stage right, as the Irish were  soundly spanked by Florida State in the Seminoles most impressive offensive performance of the season. Now, only two Big East teams remain…both which beat a conference foe to get to the second weekend.

Yes sir, it’s time to cue of a hearty selection of Big East hate.

Of all the talk that the Big East had become a superconference, the drubbing that Notre Dame took tonight at the hands of a fairly Chris Singleton-less Florida State club capped off a fairly embarrassing four days of games that saw Louisville fall to an Ohio Valley Conference team just a few hours into the Madness, Pittsburgh become the first No. 1 seed to lose, and Georgetown get embarrassed by a mid-major.
