IFL Rankings (Final Regular Season Rankings)
In the Top 10 Poll Sioux Falls remained in first place after their loss to Omaha, still with the maximum 150pts. Green Bay remained in second place and Fairbanks remained in third place. Omaha moved up to fourth place after their upset of Sioux Falls. Tri-Cities rounds out the top five in fifth place. Wichita jumped into the Top 10 Poll for the first time with their win over Bloomington.
In the Overall Rankings, Sioux Falls remains #1 after their loss to Omaha. Green Bay is a unanimous #2. Omaha jumped back into #3 thanks to their upset win over Sioux Falls. Tri-Cities jumped up to #4, Fairbanks fell to #5 while on their bye, Colorado remains in #6, Allen moved up to #7, West Texas to #8, Bloomington fell to #9, and Wyoming rounds out the top ten in #10. Tri-Cities made the biggest rise up the standings (+3 spots), while Bloomington took the biggest drop (-6 spots, the biggest drop of the year). Reading is in the playoffs, but fell to #14 due to their loss to Richmond and unimpressed computer results. Bricktown was moved to the bottom of the overall rankings since they released their paid "pro" players and brought in semi-pro players instead (which has resulted in blowout losses). Even Arizona which has some suspect players blew them out, so to the bottom they go as they can't beat anyone right now.
Thanks to all who voted in the Top 10 Poll. There will be one more poll, which will be held after the playoffs.
Bricktown's situation: In the OtB Computer Rankings, Bricktown's games using replacement players were eliminated from the stats to give a truer representation of the rankings since the replacement team blowouts weren't true reflections of an opposing team's prowess. Bricktown's regular team quit playing after ten games and their rankings right now are at #19 in the OtB Rankings. The Massey and Bradley-Terry Computer Rankings are still counting the Bricktown replacement games in their system. In the Massey Rankings, they go by final scores basically in their calculations, so the opponents of Bricktown's replacement players may have gained some unfair ground on other teams. In the Bradley-Terry Rankings the only thing considered is who you win and lose against, so the rankings aren't really affected there since if Bricktown had folded a forfeit loss counts as much as a regular loss.
