Boy, was I wrong.
I said Kentucky couldn't shoot. They lead the SEC, shooting 49.8 percent from the floor.
I said Kentucky would struggle from behind the arc. They rank second in the league, hitting 38.1 percent of their treys.
I said Kentucky would struggle with consistency and take their lumps en route to a high NCAA seed. They're undefeated 19 games into the season and seemingly breezing to an SEC regular-season championship.
I said John Wall was good, but not great. He ranks fourth in the league at 17 points per game and ranks second nationally at 6.89 assists per game. He's drained several clutch shots to help Kentucky to its undefeated record.
With that said, it's time to point to a few warning signs.
Kentucky has, however, struggled at times despite its record. Four of their wins have been within five points, two of those to nonranked teams: Miami (Ohio) and Auburn.
Kentucky's only seen two ranked teams (North Carolina and Connecticut), and each of those teams proved to disappoint their expectations. UNC isn't ranked, and UConn is 13-6 overall.
In fact, Kentucky's only truly impressive victory was an 89-77 victory at Florida.
The going gets much tougher from here on out. Five currently ranked teams await the Wildcats in the regular season, and one more just outside the Top 25. Three of those games are on the road.
Kentucky is good, and so is Calipari. But neither are perfect, and Kentucky will lose a game—if not more than one. It won't matter, though, as the SEC regular-season title is as close to a lock as can exist this early in the season, and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament is probable.
Kentucky's Grade: A+
