    Notre Dame is my team as anyone who reads my reviews knows. So I'm naturally disappointed at this outcome and even more so at how decisive it was. It looked like ND had no chance about midway through the first half and they never got untracked offensively. I thought they gave a courageous and gutsy defensive performance but you do have to score to win and that wasn't happening.



    I know FSU has the best defense in the nation based on field goal percentage against, but ND is a dynamic and talented offensive team and to be held to 19-62 (31%) from the floor including 7-30 (23%) from the land beyond is very poor and even by Florida State's lofty standards, well below their average allowed.



    Some days you just don't have it and get clobbered and this was one of those days. With a #2 seed, I had REALLY hoped Notre Dame could get to the Sweet 16 this year, but it's been a bit of a pattern that their game goes south at conference and NCAA/NIT Tournament time, the recent trip to the NIT semi-finals not withstanding.moreless

    I have been telling people that this Notre Dame had holes. They had toughness issues and they were exposed when they faced a very tough Florida State defense. As the announcer pointed out, however, it was surprising that it was the Seminoles offense, not their defense, that won the game.



    I predicted Akron to stun Notre Dame in the first round just because of how shaky I thought the Irish team was. They did not, but they fell in the second round, so it is still a disappointing NCAA Tournament for them.



    Not that an exciting game purely for the fact that it got out of hand early.moreless
