I believe you stated you would like to go to 11 weights. Others think decrease the weights to 13. The easy way to do that is to keep the weights as they are 106 to 132; keep 145-152-160 which were weights in the old configuration, and the new (current), but go back to the weights above 160. i.e 171-189-215-285.
One could go to 15 weights by using 145-152-160 keeping the current weights above i.e 170-182-195-220-285. But go back to the old weights below 145. 103-112-119-125-130-135-140 (in reality 103 is just to low, I would make that 104 or 105.
What I am getting at is that I would like to see an odd number of weights. That means we always have an easy tiebraker, most bouts won, unless their is a double DQ, a double default (both incredibly rare- can't remember the last time I saw either) or a non bout, aka a double forfeit. Sure that happens a lot. but I suspect it would happen a lot less.
Even better make a tie impossible (save in the event of one of the three double non-winners I mentioned, by making all winning scores an odd number and by making team misconducts an even number of points. Specifically:
1 point for a win in UTB (in college it would be a victory by less than a 1 minute time advantage.
3 points for a winner in regular OT (SV or TB)
5 points for a victory by 1 point (possibly also by 2)
7 points for a regular decision, margin of 2 thru 7(possibly 3-7)
9 points for a major, 8-14
11 for a Tech Fall 15+
15 for a FFT, DFLT, FALL, DQ.
I could see that if a match reaches OT a default be worth only 5 points. Same with an accumulation DQ (say 4 locked hands)
Big difference between Tech and fall would make a fall much more of an incentive - although an argument could be made for a 15 point fall only if in the first period, 13 in the second or third.
Obviously, a flagrant misconduct DQ should be 15 and a -6, no matter when it occurs.
This year will be the 80th Pa state tournament ( or is it 81?). 145 is the only weight that has been in all of them. I don't know if that was the case pre championships.
