Good luck to everyone in Week 8 of the IFB!

Who’s leading their packs after Week 5, and who’s on their tails in wild card spots:

  • Lincoln – Ferris Indians (36-19-5)
  • Grant – 7 heaven (35-20-5)
  • Obama – Triple Crown (36-21-3)
  • Reagan – Muse Academy Muses (35-23-2)
  • Sparland Hilltoppers (31-24-5)
  • Bo Hart All Stars (29-25-6)
  • Anabolic A Rods (28-25-7)
  • BJ Penn (30-27-3)

2 teams from the Reagan Division and 2 teams from the Grant Division take the 4 wild card spots this week, further intensifying the race for best division between those two.  And now a look at this week’s schedule for Week 6:

  • All Balls No Strikes (19-37-4) vs. Most Daring (22-35-3)
  • Bo Hart All Stars (29-25-6) vs. Sparland Hilltoppers (31-24-5)
  • Funky Cold Molina (27-30-3) vs. Bambinos (23-29-8)
  • 7 heaven (35-20-5) vs. BooBooCubs (27-28-5)
  • Quincy Dirtbags (22-35-3) vs. BJ Penn (30-27-3)
  • Bushwhackers (23-36-1) vs. JSloan (24-33-3)
  • Triple Crown (36-21-3) vs. Muse Academy Muses (35-23-2)
  • Anabolic A Rods (28-25-7) vs. Sparland Hilltoppers (31-24-5)

Another week of quality match-ups feature a battle of division leaders and wild card teams fighting for the top spots in the division.

Nowadays, when one hears Reagan vs. Obama, it usually refers to a debate over political philosophies and beliefs.  But here, it means a battle of division leaders.  This week’s featured match-up has Obama Division leading Triple Crown and Reagan Division leading Muse Academy Muses.  For Triple Crown, a 12-game lead in the division means a focus on rising above its current 3-seed.  But for Muse Academy Muses, a tight division battle means a win this week would keep Sparland Hilltoppers and Bo Hart All Stars at bay, but possibly move up a seed or two.

Good luck to all in Week 6 of the IFB!

This past week helped some teams improve their record, further expand division leads, or hurt some records.  This week also has the makings for more shuffling in the standings within the divisions and the wild card standings.  This week’s featured matchup reflects that with Bo Hart All Stars vs. Sparland Hilltoppers.  The top two teams in a very tight Reagan Division are featured, with only a game and a half separating them.  Nipping on their heels is Muse Academy Muses at 2 games back, and Bambinos only 4 games back.  The Reagan Division could have a different look by this time next week.

Good luck to everyone on Week 5 of the IFB!
