Considering the cosmic shifts in the rankings the last few weeks (Kevin VanDam taking over No. 1 in the Majors, Trevor Fitzgerald then Roy Hawk claiming No. 1 in the Minors-Only), this week’s update is pretty tame.
However, we should see some interesting movement in the next week (A 2010 Elite Series event is dropping off while another is starting up).
Until then, let’s talk about how this weekend’s FLW EverStart at Sam Rayburn affected the Minors-Only World Ranking.
There were only two moves in the top 20 – Jeremy Guidry fell three spots to 19th, while Kevin Lasyone moved up three spots to finally be in the top 20.
So who did move? Not a single person who made the top 10 at Sam Raybirn, as none qualify for the ranking. You have to go to the angler who finished 12th, Buz Craft, to find someone who did some moving. And boy, did he move, going from 316th to 244th.
Stephen Johnston (14th at Sam Rayburn) also moved up, going from 101st to 88th, while John Ballard (15th at Sam Rayburn) went from 150th to 117th.
The most notable move in the top 50 was in the wrong direction, with Keith Caka falling out of it, going from 50th to 77th.
Check back Wednesday for our Data Overload article on Bull Shoals for this weekend’s Elite Series event, and make sure to stop by Thursday as well to see what happens when the 2010 Elite tournament drops off. Should be a good week of shifting.
