    There's usually six mats, right? or eight? If you are in the upper section from one mat, how do you see action on opposite side mat?

    my experience from going to NCAAs at MSG and EIWA at Hofstra is that you sit high enough that you can see all of the mats but obviously you'll see the closer mats better.

  3. a running thread on 184. All CR is all pre-tournament. RPI is from wrestlestat:

    Loew: RPI (28); CR (29); .700? (No); AQ wins: 2 (Weiler, Wisman); 5th in 4 bid EIWA

    Stefanik: RPI (29); CR (24); .700? (No*); AQ wins: 2 (Montalvo, Janzer);  6th in 4 bid EIWA

    Allard: RPI (18); CR (17); .700 (Yes); AQ wins: 1 (Embree); 5th in 3 bid MAC

    Webster: RPI (17); CR (16); .700 (No); AQ wins: 5 (Sebastian x2, Jordan, Montalvo, Carlson); Big 10 doesn't do true 11th ,11/12 in 10 bid Big 10 ????

    Doyle: RPI (32); CR (32); .700 (Yes); AQ wins: 2 (Clothier, Morgan); 2nd in 1 bid Pac-12

    I will let someone else figure out how the committee compares the wrestlers because I'm not sure how they do it.

    * I am never sure how to calculate winning %. Stefanik is 13-7 plus a win over East Stroudsburg, a win over NYRTC and 2 wins wrestlestat has as "unknown" If all of those matches count, he's above .700 against all competition but otherwise is below .700. I suspect the East Stroudsburg matches don't count for winning percentage because Princeton doesn't even include them.

     


  4. for convenience, i'll repost the criteria here: 

    Quote

     

    On March 11, wrestlers in each weight class will receive an updated Win %, RPI and coaches’ ranking that includes all competition through the qualifying events. Wrestlers who meet or exceed any two of the following criteria will be eligible for at-large consideration:
     

    Quote

     

    ● .700 Win %

    ● Top 33 RPI

    ● Top 33 CR

    ● .700 winning percentage against all competition

    ● One win against a wrestler receiving automatic qualification via an earned position (preallocated)

    ● Qualifying event placement one below automatic qualification

     

    Only wrestlers that meet or exceed two of the above criteria will be eligible for selection as at-large qualifiers. A wrestler must have participated in his respective conference or qualifying tournament in order to be considered for at-large selection to the championships. *Note: Wrestlers without conference affiliation may be considered if all other criteria are met. The NCAA Wrestling Committee will use the following weighted criteria, in priority order, to evaluate the wrestlers:

    Quote

     

    ● Head-to-head competition — 25%

    ● Quality wins — 20%

    ● Coaches ranking — 15%

    ● Results against common opponents — 10%

    ● RPI — 10%

    ● Qualifying event placement — 10%

    ● Win percentage — 10%

    Loew has a better chance than Womack, who doesn't have the requisite WP or RPI, and probably won't have the CP, either.  Loew should have CP and RPI, and he placed one spot below AQ.

    Loew has wins over AQ-allocated Weiler and Wisman as well. Evening up the H2H with Stefanik may be a really big deal here because it affects 3 criteria: H2H (obviously); Loew is now barely ahead of Stefanik in RPI according to wrestlestat (28 vs 29); and the revenge win was the 5th place match in a 4 bid conference. In the end there were 3 stolen bids at 184. They were stolen from Trevor Allard (Bloomsburg), Owen Webster, (Minnesota), and Colt Doyle, (Oregon State). I'll look at their profiles (and Stefanik's) later unless someone beats me to it.

    Womack does have wins over Malczewski and Mantanona but unless he is top 33 in CR he doesn't even meet consideration criteria. 174 also had four stolen bids (including Womack's).


  6. Here are the rules for at-large selections from the NCAA Pre-Championship Manual:

    If you want to start looking at the bubble (including the shoo-ins) have at it. I'm going to take a look the Cornell bubble over in the Cornell thread later.

     


  7. Caught up on some of the stuff I didn't get to watch. Baughman's 12-11 consolation win over Gil was amazing. If you haven't watched it yet... I insist. Baughman avoided a pin in the first period by sheer squirmy will and Cornell had to challenge to take a Gil escape off the board that happened either right before or right after the final whistle.

    Then Baughman followed it up with an incredible scramble to turn a Pomrinca shot with around 10 seconds left in SV to his own takedown at the whistle that withstood a Lehigh challenge. Cornell bench reaction to the call getting confirmed was awesome. (I'm not positive but if you listen to the Shie-Gil 7th place match, I think they're discussing the video review and the general tenor of the conversation was "we can't really tell and couldn't reverse." The crowd noise was really intervening with some hot mic conversation I was desperately trying to hear!)

    The Richard - Kolodzik final was great too. Kolodzik absolutely should have been hit with another stall for fleeing the mat but tbh I don't think it would have mattered. Richard's scrambling to avoid at least two takedowns was incredible but he never came close to generating any offense himself. Really entertaining match, though, until Kolodzik shirted into reverse.

    A finalist in each PIAA 145 division who should have fun together at FLWC next year figuring out their weights. 

    And both of them win with strong top game.  McClenahan wins 1-0 on the strength of a 3rd period rideout. Handlovic wins 3-2 on a third period takedown and a 1:40 ride to the final whistle (that included a pair of stalling calls).


  9. Holy cow

    125: LaJoie loses takes 6th but that's enough. Going to NCAAs.

    133: Tucker. Champ. Going to NCAAs.

    141: Baughman wins again. Third. Going to NCAAs.

    149: Richard finished in second. Going to NCAAs.

    157: Santoro finished in 6th.

    165: Dawkins finished in 7th.

    174: Womack didn't place. On the bubble for a wild card.

    184: Loew finished in 5th. On the bubble for a wild card.

    197: Darmstadt. Champ. Going to NCAAs.

    285: Furman. THIRD PLACE! GOING TO NCAAS!

    6 autobids. 2 on the bubble. And the Big Red finished in second place. Incredible. 

    I'm floating.

    In PIAA, McClenahan is in the finals and Handlovic's semi is in the morning session. 

    Handlovic wins 4-0. A finalist in each145 division who should have fun together at FLWC next year figuring out their weights.

    Womack was wearing a big shoulder harness. Maybe he is  just not physically sound. He does look tired and a bit slow.

    definitely not in peak condition but here definitely looked strong. so close to winning with a Peterson against Wokasch but that was the last time Womack was anywhere but neutral for more than a few seconds. 


  12. LaJoie... great work, kid. Enjoy the trip.

    Tucker's got Casey Cobb to punch his ticket and he's definitely the favorite. He gets in no matter what but still, let's get that trophy.

    Baughman's route got easier because Profaci lost to Gil in SV. If he beats Gil he has the loser of Pomrinca-Kazimir (who he beat at the dual). Not easy but doable.

    Hunter still needs a win. Hoffman in the semis, and if he falters, he gets the winner of Prince/Revano. (If he loses, he gets Prince.) Let's do this.

    Santoro still alive. Has a winnable match next but he has to wrestle smarter. He couldn't convert his cradles yesterday (as someone else pointed out) and he usually didn't even get credit for the takedown. The match against Heller shouldn't have been close. After that it gets much harder: loser of Hartman/Humphries.

    Dawkins has been wrestling really well. Great defense all tournament. Stamm from Hofstra then the loser of Conigliaro/Hartman. Tough road.

    Womack. Damn, dude. He couldn't protect his legs and Wokasch learned quickly that he should catch and release so he did. Not sure why Womack took bottom in the third. Really predictable that he'd get the escape point but working from top was really his best shot at a W. He's got the win% and he'll probably keep the RPI but I don't know about CR and he only has one good win (over Mantanona).

    Loew got worked by Harvey. He was tentative and paid for it. Good bounceback win over Sacred Heart (though the Sacred Heart kid may have gotten a team penalty point for bitching about stalling or something after the match). A match he should win in Inlander then the loser of Weiler/Stewart. Tough road.

    Darmstadt doing Darmstadt things. A tech and a pin. Win it all, Ben.

    Furman got exactly what he needed: an injured Sullivan. Sullivan had no offense after he hurt himself in the opening match and it carried into the Furman match. Furman's takedown at the end after fighting off a single leg was incredible. Sullivan then injury defaulted in his first consy match. Of course now Furman's got to face Wood, and if (when, probably) he loses that needs two wins on the bottom: the winner of Doyle/Camacho and then most likely Knighton-Ward. With Sullivan out it's not impossible anymore.

    Let's have fun out there.


  13. Perfect first round. Furman 5-2 over a new big Pelusi brother from F&M. That was a lot of beef.

    Second round for Furman will be interesting. In the third round of his match against Navy, Sullivan was tripped and yelled out in pain. Unclear if it was knee or hammy but he got up, continued and looked slower but no less strong.
