Either that or Sauk Rapids losing to Bagley. If you're losing to Bagley, you're in some pretty select company.

That's certainly one of the most impressive transitive property chains I've ever seen. I don't think we usually get that close to the very bottom of the PageStat ratings.

There has to be a good route through Morris-Benson and Fairmont.

Not sure what the rules are, like if a team has to win the season series or if the rankings have to be sequential or if they all have to be in-state, but I found an extremely convoluted way to get the one-win Austin team to the top!

Hill-Murray lost to...
White Bear Lake who lost to...
Irondale who lost to...
Mounds View who lost to...
Osseo who lost to...
Anoka who lost to...
Providence who lost to...
Henry Sibley who lost to...
St. Paul Highland Park who lost to...
Amery who lost to...
Beaver Dam who lost to...
McFarland who lost to...
Oregon who lost to...
Janesville who lost to...
Beloit Memorial who lost to...
New Berlin who lost to...
Stoughton who lost to...
Monona who lost to...
West Salem who lost to...
Black River Falls who lost to...
LaCrescent-Hokah who lost to...
Austin.

Phew! I need a nap!

Well-done! I tried to make it happen with Austin, but once I got to LaCrescent-Hokah, who had only otherwise beaten Wisconsin teams, I gave up. Congratulations to the Packers!

If you've listened to the podcast, I love Transitive Property.

I published Brodziak's on Twitter and people loved it.

This one with the WISC feel is pretty good, too.

I keep thinking ROCH Lourdes with their 0-26 record might be good.

Some time consuming research by both of you. Could you somehow make the Vikings SuperBowl winners? 😝😝😝
