    Notes written on a worthless NCAA tournament bracket...

    Before the tournament started, I wrote online that seven or eight teams could win the national championship and that no team was as dominant as Kentucky was last year.

    I was wrong.

    But what I have seen over the last two weeks belies what I had seen and read through the regular season. Louisville might be just as dominant as the Wildcats were last year.
