Kentucky moved to 14-0 with last night's blowout win over Hartford.
The start is the best since Kentucky's '77-'78 squad won its first 14 games. That squad was destined to defeat Duke in the 1978 NCAA Tournament's title game, and win Kentucky's fifth such title.
The 14-0 start by first year coach John Calipari is a better start than that of Adolph Rupp. The start is better than that of Eddie Sutton's first team, the splendid squad that was led by Kentucky All American Kenny "Sky" Walker. The start is better than Tubby Smith's first squad, which would win Kentucky's seventh national title.
Don't expect Coach Calipari to crack under the pressure should the streak continue. Calipari's 14 game string is the eighth time in his collegiate coaching career he has reached or exceeded the mark.
The most intriguing thing about Calipari's current squad is that they are just now beginning to scratch the surface of their potential.
