NCAA Brackets?

Recommended Posts

They post the 33 wrestlers at each weight class for nationals on the ncaa website beginning at 1pm EST Wednesday Mar 9th with the 125 lb class.  Every half hour later, they introduce the next weight and it's 33 wrestlers.  At 6 EST or shortly after the brackets will be revealed in a little online show and posted sometime during the hour on the ncaa site.

If so, that means we're looking at the Wildcards either today or tomorrow, right?

No, per their rules it is on March 9th as well.  You can read it for yourself in their manual.  Page 13 under Primary Criteria (how they determine AQs, etc) and Secondary Criteria (where the Bronze Standard is established).  It says right at the top of the secondary criteria section that it is determined on March 9.

bigtenfan,

 

I agree it will be on Wednesday, March 9 - since it has been announced on Wednesdays in the past.

 

However the source document contradicts itself in sections 2-3 and 2-4, which state March 9 and March 10, respectively.

So no work Wednesday afternoon then? Got it.

Yep. Must be a typo. It'll be on March 9th.

No app, just a great show!  Sparks is killing it.   Only complaint is they should have ended with the brackets link.

Nice seeding job - looks like they made the matchups we all want to see regardless of stated criteria, etc.

It looks like they primarily went off number of losses unless there was a head to head.  Except at 157 where they just did what they thought was right.  If they are going to apply common sense there, they need to apply it in other places (like with Boyd at 184, Brewer at 141, and many others).
