S21: It's Giving...Final, Definitive Power Rankings
1 Blew Ball Busters (Carolina Blue) 12-1
I called it from the beginning, so y’all can run the tape back on that, but here we are.
It’s giving…fate, it’s giving…inevitability, it’s giving…mostly straight.
2 Fire in the Hole (Red) 8-4
Poor Brandon Waggoner. We all wanted this for him. Will this league ever have another gay QB on top?
3 Shipfaced (Navy) 7-4
Offensive player of the season, Keith H, had a monster season, but boy did the cracks on this team really show in their final match, and, so, maybe they really were nothing to write home about after all.
It’s giving…almost there, it’s giving…generic, it’s giving…J Crew Factory
4 Blue-m for You (Royal) 6-5
Improbable though it was, this team ended up in the Final Four. And that’s about all there is to say.
5 Into the Thicc of It (Forest Green) 7-3
This was the hypest team all season, and for JC Adams’ first season QB’ing he should be proud. They gave everything they had to each other…on & off the field.
6 Care Bears (Cardinal Red) 6-4
For the team that had a self-purported reputation of “niceness,” they surely weren’t that nice on the field. Helmed by a guidance counselor and a teacher, they certainly led some very physical offensive and defensive plays. What are the ethics of that?
It’s giving…bad art friend, it’s giving…kidney.
7 The Cream Team (White) 6-4
No one really wanted this team to go further than they did, not even their captain.
8 Blackbeard and the Booty Pirates (Black) 5-5
For a team that was as demoralized as it was, they certainly pulled off an upset, but that was about all they could do..all season.
9 Jam it In (Purple) 5-4
Charlie Salem Award Winner Scott Graham and League Legend Earl Armstrong coached and carried this team through a fun season, but lost in a surprise upset. What a tragic end, but, here’s to hoping their rookies will be back next season.
It’s giving…Ted Lasso.
10 Toxic sLIME (Lime Green) 5-4
The story here is always about AJ and Twon, but, on the whole, they were tame(r) this season. And, while no one wanted to see them win a championship again, we did see that look of anguish on AJ’s face after they lost. Gotta say I felt some schadenfreude there.
It’s giving…growth, it’s giving…emotion, it’s giving…sad girl energy.
11 Iron Curtain (Iron Gray) 4-5
Iron’s record might not accurately reflect their performance this season, but they were a force, and each of those losses were close and hard fought. We tip our hat to the veterans on this team who led, and to our Female MVP and new Social Chair, Amanda Dafonte, for her enthusiasm and gusto.
It’s giving…warm and fuzzy, it’s giving…Joe Heron.
12 Cadet Kellys (Kelly Green) 3-6
This was an odd couple of a captain and QB pairing, and with multiple false starts this season, nothing ever really gelled here.
It’s giving…odd couple, it’s giving…inconsistent, it’s giving…Congress.
13 Celine Neon (Neon Orange) 3-6
Derrick and Pat did all they could this season with such tall receivers, but, alas, it was…far from enough. Maybe they should’ve had a better cheer?
It’s giving…offbeat drum major.
14 Silversatile (Silver) 1-8
This team really did try, though.
It’s giving…backyard football at the family function
15 The Golden Gurls (Gold) 1-8
I mean, where do I begin?
It’s giving…no, it’s taking…
16 Blue-a Lipa (Atomic Blue) 0-9
I hope they all come back next season!
It’s giving…participation trophy.
