    Name The ONE Type Of Accomplishment UK's Done Which Makes Us Greatest Program Ever

    Read this on CI. My thoughts are this: The NCAA lists the decade's winningest programs (by W/L pct) since 19030-39. That is 9 decades. UK has finished in the top 10 EIGHT times. NO OTHER program is even close to this. UK by the decades:

    1930-39 #2

    1940-49 #1

    1950-59 #1

    1960-69 #5

    1970-79 #5

    1980-89 #9

    1990-99 #2

    2000-09 #18

    2010-18 #3

    Incredible....

    I like having 5 different coaches who have national championships is impressive.

    To me, it's simple. The ability to always get back on top when knocked down or going through change. The program is bigger than any coach, any rules, anything.

    Agree. This is where we stand out.

    Winning percentage.

    Only two other programs would have potential arguments and BOTH are significantly behind in the lesser talked about part of the equation... least amount of LOSSES.

    UK is uncatchable in this metric IMO.

    I'm a fan. I'm really hard to please, so that says a TON about the program.

    Oh sorry, I misread. I live by the mantra that I wouldn't want to be part of any club that would want me as a member.

    Re: Name The ONE Type Of Accomplishment UK's Done Which Makes Us Greatest Program Eve

    My serious answer is win percentage and 5 coaches winning titles. More than any other program, UK is the thing, not the coach that was there for a stretch.

    Are the pieces there to keep the tradition going for another generation or two? It's up to the fans, no?
    Cool as a rule, but sometimes bad is bad.

    My answer as well, but Darryl's top 10 in 8 decades goes hand in hand with this.

    That's a different question. If someone asks me what Kentucky's most significant achievement is, I say all-time wins. If they ask me what makes us the greatest program ever, it's the winning percentage. Winning more games in fewer opportunities means that we're better than everybody else, and significantly so.

    All time wins and winning percentage are the two for me. Those are treasured and sacred.
