Final Power Rankings
Rank - Team - Δ - Summary
1 - Caesar Kickerman - N/A
Literally doubled their runs scored for the season in their last game.
2 - The Tyrannical Tea Baggers - N/A
Winning the ones that count, even if it actually kind of hurt them with the way the bracket shook out!
3 - Slumpbusters - N/A
They end up with the five seed, which puts them in the same position as last season of having to go through the champs in the semifinals in order to win the tourney.
4 - $hit Circu$ - N/A
Charged up the standings late to secure the 3 seed and get on the (presumably) easier track to the 'ship.
5 - A Nu Start - N/A
I think they got some of the terrible play out of their system last week, which is good because they're going to need to be overachieving to advance: their first round opponent Slumpbusters are definitely better than their #5 seed indicates.
6 - Fresh Bru - N/A
They had no idea everyone makes the playoffs and assumed they wouldn't make the cut. I may have to pick them to upset a high seed just for giggles. Spoiler!
7- At Least We're Having Fun - N/A
There are teams in this conference they can hang with, and teams in this conference that they can't hang with. Last week they ran up against the latter, and unfortunately they face the 1 seed in the first round.
8 - Legendary Red Rockets - N/A
Still at the field playing barefoot pickup when I left at around 11, so maybe they should swap names with #7?
9 - Large Hardon Collider - Girth - N/A
Finishing strong, clearly in control.
10 - Large Hardon Collider - Length - ↑2
Completely dismantled Pitches be Trippin early, and then cruised through a clean error-free game for an easy win.
11 - Pitche$ B Trippin' - ↓1
Didn't look good in an ugly loss, but it was very much an outlier based on the rest of the season.
12 - Blue Bandits - ↑3
Look at these guys! Charging back into relevance.
13 - Alcaballic Rex - ↓1
Two steps forward, one step back will still eventually get you to the top right?
14 - Gary Kick Jr - N/A
No shame in losing to the best team in the conference.
15 - Red Ball and V0dka - ↓4
A precipitous drop in quality games here, 13 runs allowed to the last place team?
16 - Freeballers - N/A
For all their trouble they get a first round bye and then a matchup with my pack of delinquents to kick off the second day of playoffs.
17 - Do You Even Kick, Bro? - N/A
Really couldn't find a more difficult spot in the bracket to be in.
18 - Sons of Pitches Kickin The Punt -N/A
Finished the season hot! They go up against the surging Blue Bandits in the first round though.
