The Yankees have won 27 titles so perhaps they don't need any help from John Calipari, but if you are a really big Yankee fan you may want to place Kentucky at the end of your brackets.

The past six times the Wildcats have taken the national championship, the Yankees have won the World Series. The years are 1949, 1951, 1958, 1978, 1996 and 1999.

Hat tip for the reminder to Scott Seidenberg of the Jarrod Maxx Show from 4-to-6 a.m. on ESPN New York 1050.
