Alan takes a look at the week 11 power rankings, and shares his thoughts.
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.
