GODDAMN: The Pistol breaks the NCAA scoring record
This photo was taken after Pete Maravich passed Oscar Robertson on the NCAA career scoring list. Maravich is still first on that list, with 3,667 points, and will likely never be passed. His closest competitor (Freeman Williams, ‘74-‘78) is over 400 points behind him.
But here’s the rub…
Pete Maravich was a freshman at Louisiana State University in 1966. At that time, freshman could not play varsity basketball. The Pistol scored 3,667 in just 3 seasons, averaging 44.2 points per game, for his career (also an NCAA record).
Oh, and just one more thing: when Pistol Pete played college basketball, there was no 3-point line. Sam King, who covered LSU for the Baton Rouge State-Times studied play-by-play charts of Maravich’s senior season and determined the Pistol averaged 7.2 baskets per game, behind what would have been the college 3-point line. That’s an extra 7+ points each game, which would have pushed his average above 50 per contest.
Chew on that.

Not long ago, when faced with the choice of eating a cupcake or a cheeseburger, the only logical choice was to place the cupcake on top of the cheeseburger and insert the whole thing into your mouth. But thanks to the good people at The Meatloaf Bakery in Chicago, the burger cupcake now exists. The cake is a loaf of everything you’d find on a burger, the frosting is cheesy mashed potatoes.
