Since 2006, John Calipari has coached in 250 NCAA games.
And won 223 of them. That's a winning percentage of 89.2%. To put that in perspective, in a normal season of about 35 games, that would translate into a record of better than 31-4.
Simply astouding. But want to hear something that may be even more incredible? Naturally, Calipari's winning percentage at home is a little higher than it is on the road. But how much higher can it be, with the winning percentage overall already approaching 90%?
A lot higher, apparently.
With tonight's victory over the Tennessee Volunteers, John Calipari remains undefeated at Rupp Arena at 47-0. Earlier in his career he also had a 47-0 streak at Memphis (coincidentally, ended by tonight's opponent, Tennessee). And overall, since 2006, Calipari is an astronomical 112-2 at home, or 98.25%.
Even at Kentucky, that's pretty good. When he gets to 100%, UK fans will be satisfied.
