08:34 AM ET 03.20 | And yet, it's not as if Kentucky needed much help as brackets busted across the land. Has any NCAA tourney overall No. 1 seed ever had a tournament break wide open for it like UK has in 2012? Consider the plight of the three other No. 1 seeds. Michigan State lost valuable wing Branden Dawson to a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the regular-season finale. Syracuse found out last week it would be without its defensive stopper of a big man, Fab Melo, due to ineligibility. [North Carolina] has two of its core players hampered by wrist injuries. ... Duke, the No. 2 seed, played without starting power forward Ryan Kelly and didn't even make it out of the round of 64. It is as if the basketball gods are clearing the journey for Kentucky.

Cancel the rest of the tournament. No need to continue. It's over.

Yep, and Duke and Mizzou had nothing to worry about in the opening round! No need to play the games.

BTW, where are all the Duke fans that were yelling about a final 4-run and jumping my case when I said they were lucky to win that game at NC?
