    New Flo Rankings

    The redshirt and non-D1 losses may not factor in NCAA criteria or seeding, but FLO regularly notes and adjusts rankings based on losses to redshirts (typically giving them less weight). Case in point, Degen moved down a spot after his loss to Mauller while he was still on redshirt. Just another question for them on what all they do/don't consider.

    New Flo Rankings

    I almost emailed Spey and CP about the same thing. Martin's ranking is basically from the fact that he beat Berge. Three of his 7 losses are to the top 3 guys, although the closest was still a 5 point loss to Kolodzik. You don't even mention Martin's non-D1 loss to the #1 guy in NAIA (who got teched 15-0 by #17 Olivias two matches later so not likely a top 20ish guy in D1). Martin's wins don't come close to offsetting his multiple okay to bad losses. He's 0-4 at NCAAs so not like he should get the benefit of the doubt a returning placer might. I don't see Berge as much of a buffer between Martin and Mauller as his resume is fairly thin as well with wins over #13 Degen and #15 ven der Merwe, with a loss to #6 Finesilver to go with his loss to Martin. Heil, too, is fairly thin at #8 as his best wins are #12 Thomsen and #15 ven der Merwe, with his six losses breaking down as 4 to guys that are (or were for Zacherl) ranked above him, an injury default to #16 Lugo (down 6-0 at time) and then a “bad” loss to Blees. I don't follow the reasoning, but hopefully they will shed some light on their thinking.

    It's 250-50-25 and 50-25-15 Greco gets the same as freestyle. Coon got $25K and Bisek got $15K for his bronze in '14. https://www.teamusa.org/USA-Wrestling/Features/2018/December/20/Living-the-Dream-Medal-Fund-sets-new-record-for-Worlds-payout
