  1. If he gets a fourth match, he will be entitled to the conference’s AQ for 2nd place. An at-large bid is moot at that point. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks for confirming the early season weight allowance. Do you know what year that ended? I should have been more clear about my two statements when responding to ‘79, as the post was talking about two different eras. My first comment was reflecting on something my dad had told me about how weight management used to work. My suggestion of 127 for the final day of NCAA was meant to be an example for the current times. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. he takes the career point total at the ncaa tournament for an individual. it appears he is taking the summary scores for each of the all americans to determine the career score for a given tournament year. the all american summary is flawed from the start, as eight all americans started in 1979.
  4. I was once told that they used to give (back in the 60s or 70s) weight allowance at the beginning of the season and then it was scratch at the end of the year. Wrestlers do get an additional pound for each day of a tourney. On day three of the 2021 NCAA wrestling tourney, a 125 would have to weigh 127 or less.
  5. Not really. Your title states Best Since 1934, but the methodology does not attempt to normalize the data. At least the linked article that I provided attempted to do so. Don’t get me wrong, your posts are interesting and initiate some good conversation, but the claims of Best Ever fall flat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. What caught my eye was a battle between a single-digit team and two-digit team.

  8. Talk about a comparison of haves & have nots... Iowa seeds: 1-2-1-2-2-1-1-9-3-3 Maryland seeds: 14-14-11-14-11-11-14-12-11-14

  10. No 5-point moves in collegiate wrestling.
  11. Q: Will Anthony Valencia win 165? A: No.
  12. Again, this overly simplistic approach is heavily biased toward the post-2000 tournaments. Significant changes were made to placement points in 2001 (which enabled Minnesota to win a title w 10 AAs & zero champs). Falls weren’t worth two points until the mid-90s, and complete wrestle backs weren’t introduced until 1996. https://news.theopenmat.com/college-wrestling-news/top-200-adjusted-team-scores-ncaa-division-wrestling-history/67604 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Flo's list does not include COVID casualties that were not replaced in their conference tourney, such as Cobb from Navy at 149. Same source cited as above, middle of page one: EDIT: Didn't realize the poster had trimmed Flo's list to only include the top 15 rankings. Cobb sas #19 in the pre-conference tourney CR. Their list includes him as needing an at-large bid.
  14. You missed the file called, "Qualifier Allocation Criteria" https://ncaaorg.s3.amazonaws.com/championships/sports/wrestling/d1/men/2020-21D1MWR_QualifierAllocationCriteria.pdf From the top of page two:
  15. it was a typo on a published report.
