Season 4 Power Rankings - End of Regular Season

Chuckles McGee - Cobbfather Post Gazette

It's time for the final edition of the Power Rankings for Season 4! And the story of the last rankings period has to be the Austin Rock Stars (#7) who end the season on a 14 game win streak. Clearly, they are the hottest team in the league going into the playoffs and have a lot of momentum.

The top 5 remains unchanged from the previous rankings. Florida takes the #1 spot for the 7th straight rankings period, with an impressive 10-2 mark to end the season. Sacramento, Memphis, Jackson and New York Pride round out the top 5 - who finished the season solid, but not spectacular.

Other notable performances to end the season include #6 New York Primetimers (10-2), #9 Syracuse (9-3), and perhaps the most surprising of all, #30 Cheyenne goes 8-4!

Now, instead of the standard teams on the rise and decline, we're going all the way back to the preseason rankings and comparing them to the final rankings to see who climbed the most in the rankings, and to see who declined the most in the rankings.

Teams who improved the most: #8 Vancouver (+13), #9 Syracuse (+13), #15 Colorado Springs (+13), #3 Memphis (+12), #16 Charleston (+8)

Teams who declined the most: #29 Texas (-22), #17 Detroit (-10), #12 Chicago (-9), #17 Fargo (-9), #18 Huntington (-8)

Here is the complete final edition of the Regular Season Power Rankings!!
