An Upsetting Post, With Pun-ful Results

This blog's got a lot to cover tonight, so let's start slowly.

First off, just after this blog reported Bowling Green's upset over Virginia Tech on Saturday, a much bigger upset happened last night. Sam Houston State, picked to finish 4th in the Southland Conference, went into Missouri and beat the Big 12 school on their home court, 80-77. Missouri was picked to finish 8th in the Big 12, however last season the Big 12 was 3rd in the nation in Conference RPI. The Southland Conference finished 26th (out of 31 conferences) in the same measure.

For some additional perspective, last year in the Southland Conference, the biggest non-conference victory was Texas-Arlington's win over San Diego, who finished 120th in team RPI. Missouri will most likely end up finishing around 75th in team RPI this year, the average Big 12 school finished 82nd last season, an average that would have been significantly higher were it not for abyssmal Baylor (282nd). For the record, Missouri finished 84th last year.

Also of note Monday night was Air Force's victory over the ACC's Miami Hurricanes. The combination of this loss and Virginia Tech's shows that the ACC may not be as deep as expected this season.

This blog should live up to its name at least a little today, so here's some stale puns to end this post with a whimper:

After getting stuck at a railroad crossing, Crystal was late for work. She found that she had to train herself to leave earlier.

Or perhaps to make tracks earlier. This blog is always the conductor in a symphony of puns. Puns by the shovelful, that's the stone-coal reality. A "L" of a way to end the string, and this blog was just gaining steam.

Serving as Holden Tees' billboard is a small price to pay for a 4th person that's bookmarked your blog.

I am looking forward to another fast food restaurant review. I am trying to find a decent burger that isn't square.

Also, I may be starting a blog, based on reviews of fast food burger joints...I think that I will be naming it "Bun City!"

This is an X-Treme amount of comments. In order, as always:

1. Um, thanks. I appreciate the laissez-faire attitude of "if you get time." Very conscientious.

2. We're up to 4 people already?

3. I tend to agree with you, their products are pretty self-referential.

4. I like the non-sequitor post, especially without a link. Nice touch.

5. I'll probably get a fast food review up in the next week. That's a good name for a blog, you might get the porn crowd hooked in with that name.
