Despite loss, Rattlers remain atop AFL Coaches' Poll
Not only did the Rattlers lose for the first time in ten games, they were blown out. Their 72-42 loss was one of the most lopsided defeats in their 21-year history.
But it still wasn't enough to knock Kevin Guy's team off their perch as the Arena Football League's top team in the latest Coaches' Poll.
The Rattlers (12-2) received 10 of 14 first-place votes and top the poll for the eighth straight week.
After defeating Arizona, San Jose garnered the remaining four first-place votes and took the second spot over Spokane via a tie-breaker.
The Rattlers have the week off before playing the Orlando Predators in Florida July 6.
