2015 WFTDA Weekly Playoff Rankings

Things are starting to heat up in the WFTDA world and this past weekend will be the start of a very exciting next 5 months.  We saw a Top 15 team show its absolute dominance and really make me nervous about one of my 2015 predictions.  We then saw a couple of D2 Playoff teams go at it, but if Playoffs were today they both would be on the outside looking in.  And finally we saw a team lose, but gain 15 spots in the Weekly Rankings.

First things first, Jacksonville seriously had me worried about my prediction of no teams scoring 600 points this year.  Taking on an over-matched Ft. Myers team it wasn’t out of the realm of possibility that Jacksonville would put up the magic 600.  We are talking about a Jacksonville team that put up 711 to start their 2014 year after all.  At the end of the day though it was “only” a 505-26 victory for Jacksonville and the prediction is safe for another weekend.  Jacksonville keeps their hopes of getting a Top 12 ranking alive, lets face it that being a #3 seed is immensely better than being a #4 seed come playoffs. This bout lowered their points total slightly, but looking ahead to Jacksonville’s schedule (at least what is listed on FTS) they look very primed to go after that Top 12.

Our second bout of focus saw Killamazoo take out some revenge on Grand Raggidy with a 225-160 victory.  For Killamazoo this was the highest WFTDA points total of the season as they scored 299.81 points (reminder that my rankings are based on released WFTDA rankings and FTS scores).  This moved them up 4 spots in the rankings this week, but Killamazoo will still have a lot of work to do in order to get back in to the Top 60 as they still have a rough score from a bout with South Bend last July to deal with.  They do have a packed schedule coming up, but the key could be a March 21st bout with Ohio.  They don’t need to win, but a really bad performance could be too much for them to overcome for the 2015 Playoffs.

And finally we had North Star take a squeaker over Sioux City 136-134.  Sioux City, despite the loss, jumped all the way up to #85 and North Star actually lost a spot and is now #78 this week.  This helps me put some faith in the rankings.  If two teams are able to battle that closely and then still be ranked that close tells me at least part of the rankings is correct.  I don’t think either of these two teams have what it takes to get up to the Top 60 this year, but I fully expect both of them to put forth some great battles.

There are your highlights, and now it is on to the rankings.

  1. That South Bend vs Killamazoo game is listed as a non-sanctioned bout on Flat Track Stats and would not count in their Ranking Point Average. Have you confirmed that it was actually a sanctioned bout?
