Mississippi State certainly did topple over-ranked Texas. And the Longhorns do look like they need to spend more time in the weight room. Nonetheless, the Dispatch's headline troubles me: "Bulldogs win by punching first." That was a basketball game, not a fight. http://www.cdispatch.com/sports/article.asp?aid=54416

I don't worry about verb use to describe winning - all of us who write headlines are always searching for something fresh. I worry about misspellings and grammar errors. Last night the Wyoming paper had in a headline that the team had "beat Fullterton." Freakin yikes.
