Do we even need to do this anymore? Right now its Phoenix and then the rest of the league. Say what you will, we are watching history in the making. They have won nine in a row, and can tie the record at home against Austin, and you guessed it, its $1 beer night…So two streaks can continue.
It’s time to take a look at the USL Championship Power Rankings, and this week (and going forward) we will include another voice. We will still look at the official USL Championship power rankings, but will now include the rankings from our BGN friends Speedway Soccer.
After two crazy weeks of USL Championship action in the books, the power rankings list has changed even more. Teams that were early season favorites on the top of the list in the preseason (Louisville City FC, Phoenix Rising FC, Nashville SC, Indy Eleven) have all dropped points in the early season, and thus have dropped from their initial rankings. Other teams have taken advantage by not dropping points, and have moved to the top of the list (Saint Louis FC, OKC Energy FC, North Carolina FC, Tampa Bay Rowdies).
After 1 week of play, there have been some big changes in the league power rankings. Did North Carolina FC really show that much in week 1 to jump up 16 spots in the power rankings? Probably not. Did Indy Eleven really look so bad to see them drop 7 spots to number 11? Again, probably not.
