Bassmaster Elite Series Postseason Standings

When BASS first came out with the postseason idea, I was against it.  I felt like the winner of the regular season should be AOY.  Then, I started thinking about it a little more and realized we need the postseason.  Any other sport has a postseason that is for the championship, why should bass fishing be any different.  In the NFL playoffs, once in, anyone can win the Super Bowl.  If bass fishing wants to be thought of like a sport, we should play the game like the other sports.  The first leg of the postseason ended today and Skeet Reese is still leading the race but the standings are definitely different.  Russ Lane won the event and moved up quite a bit.  

Here are the unofficial standings after Lake Jordan:

1st (1st)        Skeet Reese, Auburn, Calif.           232
2nd (9th)        Russ Lane, Prattville, Ala.           227
3rd (4th)        Kevin VanDam, Kalamazoo, Mich.        225
4th (9th)        Aaron Martens, Leeds, Ala.            222
5th (2nd)        Edwin Evers, Talala, Okla.            220
6th (9th)        Greg Hackney, Gonzales, La.           213
7th (3rd)        Cliff Pace, Petal, Miss.              212
8th (6th)        Terry Butcher, Talala, Okla.          212
9th (9th)        Gary Klein, Weatherford, Texas        209
