    Whoa. I went and found it, and it works like a charm. And yes, it's 14th or 15th -- assuming Duke doesn't screw it up!

    An otherwise excellent presentation continues to be haunted by an incompleteness: specifically, the missing bullet point. I speak, of course, of the last bullet, always implied but never included. Omissions, when glaring, needn't necessarily be articulated. In fact, their very absence can draw attention to them more dramatically than their inclusion. And, in this case, adding an additional bullet would only demand a further bullet-ed inclusion.

    As these milestones pile up, and accomplishment curve intersects accomplishment curve, I am reminded of other magnificent achievements happening virtually simultaneously: Newton and Leibniz inventing the calculus; Banister and Landy breaking the four-minute mile. I, myself crossed the equator and international date line within minutes of each other. And so it is that, even as Tara marches toward inevitable win 1099, another approaches that same fabulous feat. Yet, there is no bullet.

    Wait a minute, now besides a Webster dictionary I also have to use a Berlitz German translation book to understand the posts? My brain is starting to hurt. I should just wait until the games start at noon before I log on...:confused:

    This has been a really interesting and oddly entertaining thread. Thanks for putting it together and keeping it updated!

    As of the morning of 2/27:
    1. Summitt . 1098
    2. Tara .. .. 980 + 25 =1005 (nxt: 3/2 WSU/Col)
    3. Hatchell . 975 + 14 = 989 (nxt: 3/1 Pitt , 3/2 Syra*)
    4. Geno .. .. 955 + 28 = 983 (nxt: 2/27 @USF, 3/4 cnf_T)
    5. Stevens .. 957 + 25 = 982 (nxt: 3/2 cnf_T, 3/5 cnfT*)
    6. Stringer . 971 + 06 = 977 (nxt: 3/1 Wisc , 3/2 MSU*)
    7. Conradt .. 900

    Earliest these could happen:
    • GA ties Htchll -- NCAA Trnmt (My guess: NCAAs)
    • GA wins 1000th -- Dec 2017 (My guess: Dec 2017)
    • Hatchell @1000 -- Postseason (My guess: Dec 2017)
    • Stevens @ 1000 -- Dec 2017 (My guess: Jan 2018)
    • Stringer @1000 -- Dec 2017 (My guess: 2018-9 season)
    • TaraV ties PHS -- 2019-20 season

    I wonder if the ALWAYS forward thinking personnel in the UConn basketball office, in conjunction with the staff in the advertising and media departments have calculated about when (the range/spread of games) Geno could win his 1000th, and will take proactive measures to assure that those games will be played at home next year, like Tara did for hers. This picture says it all. She had a large number of former players on hand to witness the game, and join in the post game celebration. It's unlikely Geno would receive any recognition or crowd appreciation on the road from fans of a team he just beat, especially if it was a blowout. :mad:

    I believe THAT is a milestone that would be best observed, played, and properly celebrated at home!! You only win that 1000th game one time. Let's do it at home, so that the fans in attendance (the game should be sold out) can share in the moment and after glow, and help Geno, his staff and team, celebrate this monumental occasion. I'm confident the powers that be will get this right. :rolleyes:

    What "proactive measures" did Tara take to ensure her 1000th win would occur at home?

    Tara didn't do anything. I'm assuming that whoever does the scheduling for her team calculated what game(s) she would win her 1000th game on, and scheduled them at home as the schedule would allow.
    I re-read my comment. It should have read "as was done for Tara". The OOC schedules are scheduled by each school's basketball office with the final approval of the head coach. The OCC schedule only consists of 13 games. vowelguy predicts that Geno could win #1000 on Dec 27th. That could be the last, or next to last OOC game UConn schedules before conference play begins. Those two could be scheduled as home games.

    The conference games are scheduled by the conference schedulers, and I don't believe the member schools have any input in those schedules. If Geno's 1000th win would fall outside of the OOC schedule, then the chances of his winning his 1000th at home would be 50-50. If it's done on the road, I'm sure a small ceremony will take place before the next home game, to commemorate the milestone. Nothing like what would take place if it's done at home. That is the point I was attempting to make. Everything I suggested should have been prefaced by IF POSSIBLE.

    Sorry to stay on this, but if we recognize that the schools have little control over the conference schedule, then how did Tara's staff exert influence over which conference games (including win #1000) would be played at home?

    They didn't. I did not notice if that game was a conference or non conference game. if it was a conference game, then it was luck of the draw. I don't follow Stanford BB. I was just thinking if possible, it would be nice if Geno could win his 1000th at home. My thoughts are on Geno's 1000th win, not Tara's. Geno probably does not care either way.

    I remember a comment made during interview with Chris Daley, about the 91st win. It was regarding someone in scheduling noting that the 91st win would be an away game and whether they should work to flip it. Chris' comment / response was that "we will loose long before then", hence why that happened as an away game. Thus IMO, I think they (the infamous "they"), will work to ensure Geno's 1000th win is a home game, assuming some 2-3 game window of predictability.

    If he wins it on the road you celebrate at the next home game. Much like we dis with Gabby's 1000 point. No big deal.

    I've already suggested that Geno probably does not care either way. You say "no big deal" I ask you, no big deal to who? Are you speaking for yourself, the team and program and/or the fans?
    Anytime a coach wins 1000 games, it's a BIG deal.

    Thanks WestCoast, you captured the essence of my query and a random thought.

    What I meant is that if the event happens at an away game we could still recognize it at home. These milestones are absolutely worth recognizing. I see how you could read my post as seemly minimizing the accomplishment, but that wasn't intention. We good?

    CViv got 6 wins this year. At that pace, she will surpass 1,000 wins in the spring of 2021. :(

    With UNC's season now over, and Geno just six wins shy of tying Hatchell, we can mark down the Sweet 16 as the game to tie her at 990 and the Elite 8 as the game to move ahead.
