Hannibal's Weekly(ish) Top Ten

We are two weeks into the season, and the contenders and pretenders are starting to come into focus.  However, with 4 weeks remaining until the playoffs, there is a lot of time to change.


#1) Crunch Time (13-1): A well-balanced team whose only hiccup has been a loss to an always dangerous Full Eclipse team.  7 wins against this week's top ten teams.

#2) Champinoship Crew (10-4): Led by a strong MVP candidate (Sparky Dickel), this squad has not only been winning against strong teams (8 against this week's top ten), but doing so by large margins.  Might be #1 if not for that early three game skid.

#3) Diliman United (11-3): Coming off of an impressive final four season, Diliman is doing it yet again.  All three losses are coming from top 4 teams, and unlike last year, Diliman has had a strong strength of schedule to start this season.

#4) Basketball Beyond Diplomacy (9-5): Taking advantage of a large training point advantage, BBD surged out to a strong start.  However, this team has floundered of late by losing 4 of 5, but it should be noted that all of those losses have been against top 5 teams.  The next weeks will tell if those extra skill points can continue to make the difference.

#5) The DHarans (11-3): While the DHarans have an impressive record, they do have the weakest strength of schedule of any of this week's top 5.  And with some recent losses against top 10's they have slid a bit down the board.  Clearly, a strong team but as they play more of the elite teams we'll see if they still hold on to a top seeding.

#6) Ballin' For Dummies (7-7): This team is a lot stronger than their record might indicate.  With a 2-2 against this week's #2, B4D shows its ability to hang with the big boys.  Additionally, two more of its losses came against Crunch Time and the remainder come from top eleven teams.

#7) Eggsistential Crisis (8-6): Two top ten wins and two more against the "top twelve" Raiders of the Lost Walrus highlight the first of two top ten teams of which I'm a captain/co-captain.  All of its losses have been from top ten teams, and three of those were 6 points or under.

#8) Disgruntled Postmen (8-6): A tough team to place in this top ten.  And, I considered placing them everywhere from 6 to 10.  But, in the end I split the difference and placed them at #8.  While DP have two top ten wins, neither was resounding.  Unless it can change its recent losing ways against Pro A teams (lost 5 of the last 6), Postmen could slip in coming weeks.

#9) Titans Forever (9-5): Another team that I wasn't sure where they fit in the bottom half of the top ten.  Once again two top ten wins as with the previous two teams, however the quality of Titans' losses has been generally lower including the head-scratching recent loss to the Pro C Stout Blue Devils.

#10) Chicken Mafia (9-5): The second of my two teams currently holds the 6th highest rating.  While we have two top ten wins, they were from a combined three points.  Four of the five losses have been from top ten teams, but only one of those has been remotely close.  Our inconsistency demons could easily have us plummet from the top ten or skyrocket up.

The Last Out/Best of the Rest--TDD and RotLW: TDD and RotLW are the two teams that are most likely to move up in future weeks.  Both have quality wins, but both also have two losses from outside the top ten.  With veteran leadership, these teams are sure to be in the mix come playoff time.


Keep an eye here for future updates.  Next week's top ten will either be on Wednesday or Friday since I'm on a red-eye for work Thursday evening.

Re: Hannibal's Weekly(ish) Top Ten

Nice job Hannibal!

Glad you recognize Strength of Schedule in this, as it is important.  I don't know how long Crunch Time has been around, but I remember when B4D started out in Playground B/C back in the one league day, Crunch Time was always top College.  Glad they are doing well.

Ahh, B4D was established in the last week or so of Season 4, so really Seaosn 5 is when we had our first full team.  We broke out of Playground in Season 6 or 7.  Been Pro since then smile

So it's cool we're all up here smile

Re: Hannibal's Weekly(ish) Top Ten

If there is enough demand, I could consider making it semi-weekly and do it Sundays and Wednesdays...

I would be game for this.  The forums seems to be pretty dead.  It is always fun to see how a few games can update the standings.

Re: Hannibal's Weekly(ish) Top Ten

Yea I do agree...2 times a week is a lot.  Last season it was more like once every other week.  If you enjoy doing it..start with one and see how that goes.

Re: Hannibal's Weekly(ish) Top Ten

I have my ratings, but I'm going to wait for tonight's games to see if they will change.  Besides, that will give us a week worth of games.
