■ Congrats to Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski for becoming the first major college basketball coach to reach 1,000 victories.
I'd still have to go with John Wooden as the greatest coach of all time, however. And that's no knock on Coach K.
It's tough to argue against 10 national titles in 12 years.
Never miss a local story.
■ Yes, the target will grow bigger. The guess here is that the closer Kentucky gets to an undefeated season, the hungrier the Cats will get. So far, they've risen to every occasion.
■ Don't know if the Cats will go undefeated, but I do know that most every team is going to try and do what South Carolina did last Saturday: play a physical game against the Cats.
■ Dick Vitale said Saturday in Columbia that he was going to "bust John Calipari's chops" by calling his friend the "Lou Holtz of college basketball" for the way Cal talks up opponents.
■ Virginia needed a Virginia Tech miss at the buzzer to survive in Blacksburg on Sunday, but as I'm sure John Calipari noticed, there wasn't much made of it.
Reason: Virginia is 19-0, but few people expect the Cavaliers to go undefeated.
■ Interesting stat from Trackingfootball.com: Of Urban Myer's 47 Ohio State signees, 42 were multi-sport athletes.
■ Reports out of Cleveland say ex-UK coach Joker Phillips is in line to be the Browns' new wide receivers coach.
That makes some sense considering that Cleveland's new offensive coordinator, John DeFilippo, is the son of Gene DeFilippo, who was associate AD at Kentucky when Phillips played and was first an assistant coach for the Cats.
■ Super Bowl pick: Seahawks 27, Patriots 17. Then again, that pick could be full of hot air.
■ Patriots owner Robert Kraft says the NFL should apologize to his organization if the investigation into "Deflate-gate" finds that the Pats did nothing wrong.
I must have missed the part where the Patriots were officially accused of wrongdoing.
■ Did you see Rick Pitino's scruffy look Sunday when Louisville was winning 80-68 at Pittsburgh?
Late last season, the Cards pledged not to shave until they lost. That lasted a while. It might not this time around.
After Wednesday's game at Boston College, the Cards entertain a streaking North Carolina on Saturday at the Yum Center.
■ At first, I thought Rick was auditioning for a part in a Martin Scorsese movie.
■ I still can't get over the fact Kentucky got all of three offensive rebounds compared to 22 defensive rebounds by South Carolina last Saturday and still beat the Gamecocks by 15.
■ Frank Martin's SEC record thus far at South Carolina: 10-32.
■ Interesting that Florida Coach Billy Donovan said Monday that he's not surprised by his team's 10-9 record.
After personnel losses from last year's Final Four team, Donovan said returning players were "put into roles they were not prepared for or ready to handle."
■ Kentucky after 19 games under John Calipari — 19-0 in 2010; 15-4 in 2011; 18-1 in 2012; 13-6 in 2013; 15-4 in 2014 and 19-0 this season. Not bad.
■ Tubby Smith got a good win on Saturday when Texas Tech upset Iowa State in Lubbock. With his Red Raiders 1-6, he needs some more of those, starting Wednesday night, when Tech visits No. 24 Oklahoma.
■ If you missed it, Chris Holtmann has Butler back in the AP Top 25 at No. 25. Holtmann is the Nicholasville native who was recently promoted to head coach of the Bulldogs.
■ As for Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch saying he showed up at Super Bowl Media Day only "so I won't get fined," there are lots of people whose jobs require a lot more and get paid a lot less.
