The Sun's Arizin: Reactions to Big East schedules being released

Everybody's got an opinion.

When it finally dropped, it was interesting to see the hot takes from each school's Twitter fanbase. And frankly, you learn a lot too.

For instance, I didn't think too much of the trip to Marquette. But apparently, that's going to be on National Marquette Day. So there's some added venom in the building.

And now, the "news."
