WrestleStat Rankings - Week 16 2018-2019

Recommended Posts

Rankings have been updated, but I need to point out some changes that occurred last night.

1) Wrestlers records have been updated to reflect only Division I opponents. This was done to fall in line with the same criteria as the NCAA's RPI rankings use for the 17 match minimum.
2) Wrestlers profile pages have been updated to display both the [Division I] record, as well as the wrestlers overall record. This will show up in the Season Summaries section. The overall record will be in parenthesis. Check out Chance Marsteller's profile for an example: https://www.wrestlestat.com/wrestler/47805/marsteller-chance/profile
3) Also, on a wrestlers profile page is now the RPI. This is the last column in the Season Summaries section. Right now it's displaying the actual RPI value, but that may change or get removed since it doesn't provide much context relative to other wrestlers. Anyway, since the official RPI is based on the 17 match minimum, not everyone will have an RPI. In order to get a guage about where, approximately, a wrestlers will fall once they reach that 17 match minimum, there's a 2nd RPI value in parenthesis. This RPI is based on a 5 match minimum. For example, Stevan Micic at 133 (ranked #1) has only had 13 matches so far this year, therefore does not have an official RPI (so it shows NA), but it is showing the unofficial RPI so you can get an approximate idea of where he will land once reaching that 17 match minimum.
4) Lastly, since we're on the subject of the RPI, I went ahead and added an RPI rankings page. This page is initially sorted by the UNOFFICIAL RPI (smaller number at the far-left), but will display in bigger font the official RPI. Again, this is to give an idea where a wrestler will slot-in once they reach the 17 match minimum.

Keep in mind, I'm not 100% sure on the criteria of the RPI calculations that the NCAA uses, but I'll continue to tweak once I find out all of the details. As of right now, it's calculated like this: (25% Wrestlers Win %) + (50% Opponents Win %) + (25% Opponents Opponents Win %)

Now, for the rankings...I've wrote too much already, so here they are:

Why the distinction of D1 matches? Was Cael 159-0 against all D1 opponents, or did he have a few others sprinkled in there? I understand using only D1 matches to determine qualification for NCAA's, but are those non-D1 matches "official" matches on their career record or are they not?

Rankings are looking better but still a few that stand out:

149 Micah above Ashnault despite losing to him and Ashnault being undefeated

O’Connor #3 above Kolodzik despite losing to him and Kolodzik only losing to Ashnaukt

165 Wick above Marinelli despite losing to him 2X and Marinelli being undefeated 

285 Cassar above White despite losing to him and White’s only loss to #1

I'm thinking I was a little premature with that change. The reason for it was because the official RPI only uses matches vs other D1 wrestlers, so I got it in my head that's the way it should be EVERYWHERE. Now I don't think that's the case, because of your point. I believe you're right, the wrestlers official record will include wins/losses across all divisions, it's ONLY the RPI that should be using D1 match results only...

Thanks for revisiting that.  While you're at it, would it be possible to exclude matches from redshirt seasons in their career record for the same reason.  It would just save having to do the math and official career records would be available at a glance.  No biggie, your site is awesome!

That's a good one. I can do two lines in that "career" section at the bottom of the Season Summaries:

 

Career 42-12

Career w/ Redshirt 50-20

 

Something like that...
