AP Power Rankings: Week 9
Quality is rising to the top as we dive into Week 10 of the AP Power Rankings. We hold steady at Number One, but below that is shifting sand.
Biggest Movers: California Victory, FC Arizona - 2 Spots
Biggest Losers: Riverside Coras - 3 Spots
New Comer: AFC Ann Arbor
Lost Spot: Moreno Valley
Lots of changes in the Regional Power Rankings. A double check of the leagues that carry the USASA Elite designation showed that I was missing a couple, and as more teams become eligible, I'm going to have to adjust how teams get on to the list.
Basically, what I'll be doing moving forward is giving higher preference to teams from actual regional leagues, city leagues, less so. It will take some serious dominance from teams in city leagues to have more than one representative in the Top 10. This also allows me to include more teams from more leagues in the Power Rankings.
What do you think? Any ideas for improvement, things we missed or should change? Let us know in the comments below!
