Hits keep coming in Big East

It has not been a good week for the Big East. First, Bobby Gonzalez gets fired at Seton Hall. No real big loss there. He had to go.
Then came Thursday, when three of the four Big East teams in action went down and Villanova nearly became the first No. 2 seed since 2001 to bite the dust in the first round.
Georgetown, Marquette and Notre Dame are gone. Georgetown's loss was the most embarrassing for the league. Ohio manhandled the Hoyas, 97-83.
Notre Dame's loss wasn't much better. There is no was the Irish should have lost to Old Dominion.
As for Villanova, the Wildcats better right what's wrong or they will be heading home, too. The Wildcats looked lost against Robert Morris, especially Corey Fisher. he was out of sync the entire game, most likely a result of the benching for what Jay Wright called a "teaching point."
What is a "teaching point" anyway. Come on Jay, just say they were late for a meeting, didn't do something you wanted them to do or whatever minor transgression took place.
If it's not that big of a deal, why not say what happened. What's the harm in that?
By not coming right out and say what happened leads to rampant speculation, the kind you don't want to see in print.
In the age of the Internet, anything can get on-line.
Honesty is always the best policy. Besides, once you say what happened it's over and done with. Instead, all you do is fuel the speculation that are on blogs and messages boards everywhere.
