Week 5 Power Rankings
Rank - Team - Δ - Summary
1 - Finkick Odair - N/A
Running into a mid-season stretch of weak teams, all part of my secret plan that I just made up to sabotage their chances at FC next week.
2 - FRESH BRU - N/A
Firmly established as the #2 in the league.
3 - Tight and Bright - ↑1
I promised Dre I would move them up in the rankings if he reffed so ... here we are.
4 - The Tyrannical Tea Baggers - ↓1
I could try and justify dropping them due to an unconvincing win over Plan B, but in truth I just made a rankings side deal with Dre. #integrity
5 - Plan B - N/A
Not sure how this team is worse than it was last season, but it seems like a little of the magic just isn't there.
6 - Sit On My Base - N/A
Taking it like a champ against the league champs.
7 - Large Hardon Collider - Girth - N/A
I don't think anyone even actually reffed the Hardon Bowl, but it looked like fun!
8 - Large Hardon Collider - Length - N/A
Still haven't returned the belt.
9 - Pitches be Trippin' - N/A
Returned to their curb stomping ways with a 10-3 victory
10 - Jacked to the Kicks - ↑2
Deceptively good team, don't sleep on this crew.
11 - Kickin' Grass and Takin' Names - ↑2
Gave up more than they should have to PSR, but word on the street is Rex had a ringer in the roster last week.
12 - At Least We're Having Fun - ↑1
I feel like this might actually be where this team belongs in the rankings long term. Their game this week will speak volumes.
13 - Booooze on First! - ↑1 Took care of business with a clean win over SOPKTP.
14 - Brown Guys and Friends - ↓4
Turns out that as long as these guys have at least an hour to start drinking before the game their performance suffers dramatically. They have no 7 PM games for the rest of the season soooooo...
15 - Do You Even Kick Bro? - N/A
Got me all excited there for a hot minute, but this isn't a revolution. They are we we thought they were.
16 - Red Ball and V0dka -N/A
Hard to judge a loss to PBT really, but they did put some runs on the board?
17 - Sons of Pitches Kickin The Punt -N/A
They've got the heart and the will but the execution just isn't there.
18 - PurpleSaurus Rex - N/A
Actually made the game interesting when they got within 1 in the bottom of the 4th, but gave up 3 in the 5th frame and couldn't convert any runs even with their team Dad attempting to bunt. (Spoiler: he is bad at bunting and kicked away after failing to bunt 3 times)
