Top 50 Motivational Rankings for 12/25/01-1/7/22

More notes before we start:

  1. Style points count. You’ll see that down the list.
  2. Just a reminder, I’m a ‘What have you done for me lately’ guy, so a team that did great last year but is bowling like dishwater now is not going to be on this list.
  3. If you’re not in a play-off spot in your district. You’re not making the list. UPDATE: I threw in ONE Exception. ONE. It’s my list, I can do what I want with it. So NYAH.
  4. While #1 is Tour Stop Play, Team Rankings / WCS / Tournament Results DO count here, because if they do well and a team uses these people in a UBA Tour Stop, then there’s no reason why not to think they will be just as good at a tour stop as they are in a tournament, etc.
  5. Keep in mind that with over 200 teams competing this season, this list represents less than the top 25% of the UBA. If you’re on here, consider that some kudos.
  6. This is for fun. Don’t get salty, get motivated.
  7. I love all feedback, so keep it coming 🙂

So here we go with this week’s rankings….

CURRENT PLAY NOTE: The Top 3 from Last Team Standing were all from the Long Island District, so that gets play, as well as the NJ South Results and WCS Title Match Results from said Last Team Standing

  1. Murder Inc. (175-25 / 1st) (Was 3)

    They have a huge test this weekend.
  3. BC Crew (194-86 / 1st) (Was 1)
