BTI’s Rants and Ramblings: Setting Records Under Calipari

It’s going to be very interesting as this season progresses to see just how much this team will dent the UK record books.  And what makes this team very interesting is they could challenge for records at a bunch of different areas.  They are currently on pace to potentially challenge the points record for a season.  But then amazingly, they could also challenge the modern era record for fewest points per game given up.  Blocks and rebounds records could also be up for grabs with this team.

Now, it is still incredibly early to predict these kinds of things as UK has played 4 cupcakes and Kansas.  But let’s be honest, most teams UK plays this year will be cupcakes, even in the SEC.  They will have plenty of games to try and pad the stats this year.  But what is this team’s pace so far this year?  Take a look at where they stand so far and some of the school records and Calipari’s records from his other 5 teams:

    Dude…. The current season record for UK points is 1995-1996 averaging a blistering 91.4 PPG in 36 games. How do you mistake this?!

    I love the team, but don’t you think it is a little to early for all this record talk? I mean we have had a very cupcake (With extra frosting) filled schedule to this point against lower tier J.V. teams and a overrated Kansas team. Lets not get ahead of ourselves here. Lets start talking about this after the Game at the YUM center, or after Carolina and Texas. This team is very good no doubt but I see a lot of chincs in the Armor. The recipe is there, play small, spread the bigs out and make them guard the dribble and sag on defense in a 2/3, as once again coach Cal does not seem to have a consistent knockdown shooter (Tyler,Booker, Andrew and Aaron are streaky), then after that there not many shooters. Trey is playing out of position, the last game showed that he does not have the guard skills or outside range to play out on the wing, he should be closer to the basket. Look I want the best for the team, but there is lot still to learn about this team. I do not think they are the world beaters we think they are up to this point in the season….

      I would like to point out 2 statistics to you… Tyler Ulis is 8-13 from beyond the arc for a staggering 62% clip and Andrew Harrison is 5-11 from behind the arc for a 46% mark.

      While I agree that Aaron and Devin have been streaky, please do not put Ulis and An. Harrison in that group. Additionally, the only record 2 records in my mind that are in jeopardy of being broken are blocks and points against.
