That would be quite an accomplishment, especially reflective of what Geno has meant to UConn. I do hesitate to point out - do you realize how many games your program would have won if they were any good B(efore)G(eno)?
Also, how many teams actually have 1000 wins? Can't really be many, although a lot could be approaching it. Tennessee obviously; nothing else is obvious since the other high victory coaches did coach elsewhere for a time.
There is a discrepancy of 66 wins from what the NCAA official records cite, which was 905 to begin the year rather than 971. I'm not entirely sure which wins get discarded, but I'm guessing they're mainly from the pre-Geno years when UConn played a lot of games against NE schools that are now not in D1. The only two teams that the NCAA listed with more than 1000 wins going into this season were UTenn at 1247 and LA Tech at 1043, with the Vols at 69 seasons, Techsters at 40, and Huskies at 32. James Madison also broke through this year and is up to 1006, and they have played a record 93 seasons. Other teams ahead of UConn include Old Dominion, SF Austin, Texas, Stanford, and Ohio State, and all have many more seasons than UConn, whose .830 winning percentage is by far the best. UConn's winning percentage for all games including those early D2 games is .770, the difference from the school's list of 989-296 and the NCAA D1's list of 923-190.
I'm sure the other programs also have some games that aren't counted by the NCAA, but I'm guessing that when UConn celebrates its 1000th, it will be this season in that final regular season game
