  1. This weeks edition is short and sweet because of the holidays. There were only 4 duals over the weekend, and out of those, there were only 2 "upsets". The first upset was on Black Friday where Mitch Bowman of Iowa was wrestling up at 197 in place of Iowa's assumed starter Jacob Warner (he still hasn't made his debut yet). Bowman knocked off Purdue's #17 Christian Brunner by way of a 7 - 5 decision. You can read more about the dual via IAWrestle: https://iawrestle.com/2018/11/24/depth-on-display-as-iowa-tops-purdue-in-big-ten-opener/ https://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/19946/bowman-mitch/profile The second/last upset of the weekend came yesterday in the Cowboys vs Cowboys dual (OSU vs Wyoming) where #13 Branson Ashworth beat #5 Chandler Rogers 4 - 1. Watching the dual live on Flo I kept thinking/waiting for Rogers to hit the big move, but Branson's defense proved to be too tough. Ashworth is off to a good start this season going 10 - 1 so far, with his only loss coming to former OSU wrestler Chance Marsteller. https://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/21676/ashworth-branson/profile

  3. Another week in the books, and another GREAT round of upsets to highlight. Two notable upsets occurred within the same team at the Keystone Classic this weekend, where #15 Cassar of Penn State knocked off current #1 (overall) Nick Nevills. Also, #39 Berge beat fellow 149 Jarod Verkleeren. Berge had another good upset in the tournament knocking off #19 Brock Wilson of Harvard. That would seem to give these two wrestlers the nod for the starting 149, and 285 pound spots, respectively, for PSU. Here's the full slate of upsets over the weekend where the upset wrestler is in the top 25. In case anyone was looking for it, Gable Steveson is not on the list since he was already ranked ahead of Derek White in the [overall] 285 pound rankings, which are here: https://www.wrestlestat.com/rankings/weight/285 285 - #15 Anthony Cassar (Penn State) beat #1 Nick Nevills (Penn State) by DEC 7 - 2 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/20299/cassar-anthony/profile 184 - #14 Drew Foster (Northern Iowa) beat #7 Nino Bonaccorsi (Pittsburgh) by DEC 9 - 6 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/20212/foster-drew/profile 285 - #16 Trent Hillger (Wisconsin) beat #8 Tate Orndorff (Utah Valley) by SV-1 9 - 7 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/49350/hillger-trent/profile 165 - #19 Connor Flynn (Missouri) beat #9 Mekhi Lewis (Virginia Tech) by DEC 8 - 6 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/39676/flynn-connor/profile 157 - #122 Dan Reed (Columbia) beat #10 Luke Weiland (Army) by DEC 6 - 5 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/19818/reed-dan/profile 149 - #39 Brady Berge (Penn State) beat #11 Jarod Verkleeren (Penn State) by DEC 3 - 2 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/49277/berge-brady/profile 184 - #37 Corey Hazel (Lock Haven) beat #11 Louie DePrez (Binghamton) by DEC 6 - 4 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/39756/hazel-corey/profile 149 - #32 Anthony Artalona (Pennsylvania) beat #11 Jarod Verkleeren (Penn State) by DEC 4 - 2 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/51039/artalona-anthony/profile 174 - #31 Ryan Christensen (Wisconsin) beat #11 Michael Labriola (Nebraska) by FALL 6:59 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/20481/christensen-ryan/profile 125 - #22 Shakur Laney (Ohio) beat #11 Michael McGee (Old Dominion) by DEC 4 - 2 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/39917/laney-shakur/profile 141 - #85 Matthew Findlay (Utah Valley) beat #12 Tristan Moran (Wisconsin) by DEC 10 - 5 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/45366/findlay-matthew/profile 149 - #21 Josh Heil (Campbell) beat #12 Alec Hagan (Ohio) by DEC 3 - 0 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/45100/heil-josh/profile 149 - #47 Denton Spencer (Gardner-Webb) beat #15 Tanner Smith (Chattanooga) by DEC 2 - 1 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/49134/spencer-denton/profile 125 - #67 Cole Verner (Wyoming) beat #16 Zeke Moisey (Nebraska) by DEC 5 - 2 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/41722/verner-cole/profile 197 - #58 Tanner Orndorff (Utah Valley) beat #16 Greg Bulsak (Clarion) by DEC 7 - 5 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/40324/orndorff-tanner/profile 141 - #50 Sa'Derian Perry (Old Dominion) beat #16 Paul Konrath (Indiana) by TF5 16 - 1 5:20 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/40084/perry-sa'derian/profile 133 - #98 Tucker Sjomeling (Nebraska) beat #17 Montorie Bridges (Wyoming) by DEC 13 - 11 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/49209/sjomeling-tucker/profile 157 - #81 Dominick Mandarino (Stanford) beat #17 Paul Fox (Stanford) by DEC 8 - 5 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/49324/mandarino-dominick/profile 133 - #78 Austin Gomez (Iowa State) beat #18 Allan Hart (Missouri) by DEC 3 - 2 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/49153/gomez-austin/profile 285 - #59 Zach Elam (Missouri) beat #18 John Borst (Virginia Tech) by DEC 5 - 4 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/51612/elam-zach/profile 184 - #45 Kordell Norfleet (Arizona State) beat #18 Ethan Smith (Ohio State) by FALL 6:15 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/49038/norfleet-kordell/profile 197 - #27 Blake Reynolds (Lock Haven) beat #18 Bennett Paulson (Army) by DEC 7 - 3 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/49167/reynolds-blake/profile 149 - #84 Luke Gardner (Penn State) beat #19 Brock Wilson (Harvard) by DEC 2 - 1 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/44743/gardner-luke/profile 149 - #39 Brady Berge (Penn State) beat #19 Brock Wilson (Harvard) by MD 13 - 4 http://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/49277/berge-brady/profile Other changes to WrestleStat....

    WrestleStat Week 2 Comparisons

    No, you are reading it correctly. Since all 20 weren't required, I couldn't think of many different ways to approach this issue. I pondered requiring all 20 this season, but didn't pull the trigger. I may do that for next season...
  9. Our first set of rankings are here. Some big movers for names you all may recognize, Patrick Glory and Joey Melendez moved up 45 and 44 spots respectively. While at 285, some new true freshman heavyweight, not sure if you've heard of him, Gable Steveson, moved up 30 spots to close at #33 in the rankings.

  11. If you're not familiar, this is just a for-fun season-long challenge where there are 20 feature matches per week. You select anywhere from 0 to all 20 of the winners. TO BE ELIGIBLE ON THE LEADERBOARD, you must have made a selection in at least half of the feature matches for the week/season. In years past, I have given away WrestleStat long-sleeve shirts to the top 3 placewinners. We will be doing that again this year, so make sure you get enough picks in to be eligible. If you're not already a member of WrestleStat, you can click the registration link below to get registered....reminder, THIS IS ALL FREE! Enjoy!

There will be rosters, weekly matchups, waiver wire, etc. Stay tuned for more details as they come out.
  12. The preseason rankings have been updated on WrestleStat to prepare for the start of the Fantasy Pick'Em contest tomorrow. These should contain all transfers, weight changes, redshirts, etc. In the past few days I've also made numerous improvements to the speed of each of these pages. If you notice anything taking longer than you think it should, don't hesitate to contact me. Here are the rankings: Wrestler Rankings: https://www.wrestlestat.com/rankings/starters Dual Rankings: https://www.wrestlestat.com/rankings/dual Tournament Rankings: https://www.wrestlestat.com/rankings/tournament Edit: Sorry, this new board format apparently does not auto-convert URL's to hyperlinks...
  13. Hey WrestleStat fans! The website has been transitioned to the 2019 season. Go ahead and start updating starters to who they are projected to be for the upcoming season. Couple things to note: PreSeason rankings are NOT just the 2018 end of season rankings, less seniors. Since the algorithm has been updated, ALL rankings for every season have been run through the new algorithm, but ONLY the 2019 preseason values were updated. The reason for that is two-fold: 1) Since those other seasons are done, it doesn't make sense to go back and change them, and 2) It would take upwards of almost 8 hours of processing to run through the 100 weeks (5 seasons X ~20 weeks per season) of rankings that would need to be done in the production database There are no enhancements that come with this release. I'm working on MASSIVE changes to the website, but that code is not ready to be deployed. There are major look-and-feel/theme changes where I have to update every single page on the site, as well as architectural changes like making a schools conference season-specific since we have schools adding/dropping programs or changing conferences on a yearly basis, so it's going to take probably the entire summer. Now's the best time to get any requests in for modifications/enhancements to the site that aren't already known. Sometime in the future I'll develop a page that will show exactly what I'm working on so it's more transparent...but in the meantime, just send me or obrats a message and will get it added if it's not already on the list. Some examples of changes: "can the site open the videos of matches directly in the site, instead of navigating over to YouTube.com", or "use a voting system for the upcoming, potential feature matches instead of just a yes/no toggle", or "add a chat feature to the dual comparison and box score pages for comments about a specific dual or tournament". Lastly, if there are any schools that have added or dropped wrestling, or wrestlers that have transferred that aren't reflected on the site yet, please either reply, or send a message to myself or obrats and we can get those changes made. That's all for now! https://www.wrestlestat.com

    WrestleStat has transitioned to 2019

    Thank you very much, Pish! Since the cat's pretty much out of the bag......I'll be starting development on a season-long Fantasy Wrestling feature for WrestleStat, ready for the 2019-2020 season. This will be just like NFL Fantasy football where you will select your starters each week, etc...VERY excited about this!
  15. Hello Folks! It's taken HUNDREDS of hours, lots of testing, and lots of feedback (thank you), but the new version of WrestleStat is ready to go! I guarantee you I won't remember every item that has changed, but here are the highlights: 1) The entire layout/template of the site has been updated to a dark theme. I felt this made it easier on the eyes, especially if/when viewing in dark rooms. Some color-blind users have mentioned having problems with viewing some of the pages, if there are still pages/text on the site that is really hard to read, please let me know. (See contact info below) 2) Search feature has received an upgrade; you can now quickly search for dual or wrestler comparisons without having to go through the wrestler/team select dropdowns. For examples, just look at the text box at the top of the site (on EVERY page). 3) RSS Feeds have been incorporated into the site. You can now see up-to-date articles, blog posts, and podcasts for anything wrestling related. If there's a site/source out there that you follow that is wrestling related that's NOT on WrestleStat, let me know and I can get it added assuming it has a valid RSS feed url. 4) Your wrestlers and schools that you follow via WrestleTrak are no longer on the front page. There's now a link called "My WrestleTrak" that will take you to a page to view all of the schools and wrestlers that you follow. 5) Since the homepage has received a re-design and none of the old lists are there anymore (ie top wrestlers, top 10 dual rankings, recent recruits, upcoming duals, etc), they've been moved to their own pages. You can get to these lists from the "Lists" section on the homepage. 6) Rankings update (kind of). The main theme of the feedback I've received about the rankings is "why is EVERYONE ranked". Well, I've updated the wrestler rankings links so it now DEFAULTS to the starters-only version of rankings. You can still get to the rankings pages for ALL wrestlers at a weight by clicking the "View All Wrestlers for {Weight}" green button. 7) The rankings trend for a team/wrestler has also changed a little bit. Previously, there was a red/green arrow next to a number indicating how much that team/wrestler went up or down since the last set of rankings. This has changed so now you will see the standard ranking in white, then in "super"-text, there will be either a red or green number which indicates the trend. Those are the heavy-hitters at this point. I know there are still little tweaks that need to be made, if you spot something, let us know and will add it to our log. (ie the Donate page, spacing doesn't look very good) Dan Seifring aka Obrats has been cranking through the team rosters and schedules for this upcoming season, so those will continuing to change as the teams update their websites. A little note about the rankings....since the algorithm was updated a few months ago, I've found a bug that is not allowing me to re-process the preseason rankings. That bug is going to get fixed in the coming months. Lastly, as always, any feedback, either positive or negative, is ALWAYS welcome! https://www.wrestlestat.com Contact info: support@wrestlestat.com andegre@wrestlestat.com obrats@wrestlestat.com
  16. One of the features I've been anxious to add this offseason was an RSS feed reader service. I designed it to combine all wrestling-related articles and blog posts into a single source so they are all visible in one spot so people don't have to go hunting for them. Obviously, there are RSS readers out there where individuals can specifically sign up for their favorite feeds, but the purpose of this was to combine all of these for the general wrestling public, and/or for fans that may not be that familiar with all of the different outlets. There are a few different pages that you can navigate to, to view feeds: - All feeds (accessed via the "Lists" section on the homepage - Feeds by source - view all feeds by a specific feed source - Feeds by school - team-specific feeds so if there are any feeds that are specific to a team (like Scott Connor's blog is specifically for Iowa), then you can view all of those feed items for a particular school. On the main feeds page (linked below), the feed source on the left is now a hyperlink so you can view all of the feeds for just that source. If a specific feed is for a school, there's a note at the bottom of the feed saying "Feeds are for.... | See all feeds for {school}". Click that and you can see all of the feeds that are assigned to that school. Lastly, all feeds are updated every 15 minutes, so the feeds are going to be very current. Right now there are about a dozen feeds loaded into the system. The page linked below will then display all of the feeds that have come from these services, and display them strictly by their publish date. If there are anymore feeds that are college wrestling related, please send them to either myself (andegre@wrestlestat.com), or obrats (obrats@wrestlestat.com), or just reply to this thread. Also in the future, I'll either add a "mailto:" option somewhere on the site where it will automatically open a new email where the user can enter the URL, then send, or I'll open up the "Add Feed" page to some more users so they can add them themselves. Let me know what you think of this: https://test.wrestlestat.com/feed/list

    WrestleStat has transitioned to 2019

    While I understand where you're coming from, that's not what the WrestleStat rankings are about. They are specifically for the career, not individual season. Regarding your last comment, I completely agree that there are still some head-scratching rankings in there with the updated algorithm, but keep in mind this new version of the algorithm also would be rated #1 by the "Rank the Rankers" point system. We'll continue working this offseason to try and address some of these anomalies a little better.
  18. Here are the final rankings. Remember, these rankings may not necessarily directly reflect the placement of each wrestler at the NCAA tournament; it's still an accumulation of their career rankings. For example, Spencer Lee is still #2 at 125 while Tomasello is #1. Wrestler Rankings: https://www.wrestlestat.com/rankings/wrestler Tournament Rankings: https://www.wrestlestat.com/rankings/tournament Dual Rankings: https://www.wrestlestat.com/rankings/dual Statistical Rankings: https://www.wrestlestat.com/rankings/statistical Hodge Watch: https://www.wrestlestat.com/rankings/hodge This offseason the rankings process is going to get modified to help accommodate some of the issues that were found this season. The main problem identified is when there are wrestlers that have a wide range of "best wins" vs "bad losses". WrestleStat is going to receive some major upgrades this offseason, including a re-design of the entire site layout. Stay tuned to see all of the changes. Lastly, any and all suggestions, site problems, constructive criticism is welcomed.

    Final 2018 WrestleStat Rankings

    Just wanted to give a brief update on the WrestleStat rankings. We've done over 50 tweaks and simulation runs. Going by the "Rank the Rankers" scoring model (please someone post a link to that results thread, I can't find it), the latest version of the algorithm would have WrestleStat in 1st place with 569 points!!! We are going to continue with some more tweaks/modifications and simulation runs, but this is EXTREMELY promising and exciting! Edit: found that post http://board.themat.com/index.php?/topic/17451-rank-the-rankers/?hl=%2Brank+%2Brankers And here's a link to the post that contains the scoring model: http://board.themat.com/index.php?/topic/17133-rank-the-rankers/?hl=%2Brank+%2Brankers

    Rank the Rankers

    Not sure if anyone cares, but WrestleStat has gone through quite a few tweaks and iterations to the algorithm. Latest version has WrestleStat with a final number of 554. I went back and filled it out for 2017 and it ALSO came up with 554. WrestleStat algorithm is getting better, we'll continue to work on improving it this offseason. By the way, if anyone knows of a way to get past historical rankings from any of these services, please let me know as I'd like to see how the rest of the field did for last season as well to see where WrestleStat stands. Edit: I ran through 2017's to see how the "seeds" fared using that scoring model....540.

    Right, but in most cases, they need to prove that they've missed a majority of 2 full seasons....or so I thought/read.

    Rank the Rankers

    This is really cool and I appreciate you compiling this information. I've/we've know since about week 6 that the WrestleStat rankings needed a pretty good tweak. We've got some notes on where to start tweaking, as well as some other ideas that I have to make it look more accurate. Having this information definitely helps, and gives me a good way to "weight" the different versions/tweaks that I'll be applying this summer. It will allow me to run through the rankings HUNDREDS of times until my number gets to the top of your list :). Last summer I did exactly ZERO updates to the rankings process, all while announcing that I WAS going to make some tweaks. Seeing as how this is a side project and I have a real job, with a family and two kids under the age of 5, my time is limited. Last summer was spent almost ENTIRELY on integrating with TakedownLIVE's system (it's the icon that will show takedowns, escapes, etc for individual match results....if you're not sure what I'm talking about, check out https://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/14443/butler-nathan/profile). So, I have a [LONG] list of updates/tweaks/additions that I'm going to work on this summer. The rankings will be near the top of the list....priority #1 is to re-design the site with a different dark-themed style that will make it easier on the eyes, IMO. BUT, one thing that seems to still be lost on some of the people that criticize my rankings is the fact that these are CAREER based, just like the real Elo rating system that this is based on. Prime example, Tomasello #1, Spencer Lee #2. Lastly, one quick question, Ching, did you happen to use the "Starters" version of my rankings, or the regular that includes injured, redshirting, etc? (Crossing my fingers that you used the "regular" version, which would mean my numbers would move up :)).
  23. These links contain ALL of the 1st round matchups, separated by weight class. If for any reason the seeds change, then they are in a single place where they can be updated once.

  25. Hello everyone, I thought I’d just have one post that contained the “join” links for all of the different Tourney Pool groups, hosted by WrestleStat, that you can join. How soon will match results/points be updated? For the conference tournaments, expect to see updates once per day. So, single day tournaments will only be updated once all matches are complete. Multi-day tournaments will be updated upon the completion of each day. For NCAA Championships, it will be updated after each session is completed. It will probably take 1 to 2 hours after each session since I’ll have to go back to my hotel room to enter results instead of doing it right at the event since I don’t have a press pass this year. Remember, all of this is free!!!
