The only problem with that is if I refine the search statement it will not work in code. For instance if I do the following it will work the way I want it to with the select statement but not with the code since I will only get a small amount of returns.

SELECT *, (@rownum := 0)
FROM (SELECT @rownum := @rownum+1 AS rank, team_id, team_name, points FROM teams order by points DESC) AS derived_table where team_name like 'St%';

With the above statement I'll get there overall rank but only those that start with St. In code I would not get there over all rank I would only be able to rank them amongst the ones that start with St. That is my problem here.
