Weekend Upsets with WrestleStat – Week 8 2016-2017

The Reno Tournament of Champions saw alot of the upsets this weekend, accounting for 4 of the 11.

The first, and biggest (if you aren’t an OSU fan) is Boo Lewallen of Oklahoma State got his first collegiate matches under his belt, and he did it in style, winning the 133 pound bracket at the Reno Tournament of Champions. Not a bad start to your career! The “biggest” update was the match with Bryce Meredith where he won by Dec 7 – 3. (FYI – his ranking does not reflect these matches as the Reno matches were entered AFTER the rankings process ran)

The other big upset was #38 Brandon Womack beating #6 Chandler Rogers by fall in the dual between Cornell and Oklahoma State.

WrestleStat Week 7 Rankings – 2016-2017

NOTE: There was a bug fixed in the individual rankings process that was incorrectly calculating a wrestlers ELO rating if the wrestler was on a non-Division I roster the prior season.

Individual Rankings:

We’ve got a fresh batch of rankings this week. There were a couple of significant moves this week, mainly due to the fact of fixing the bug mentioned above.
At 133, Ali Naser of Arizona State moved up 22 spots to end up at #21.
At 141, Matt Kolodzik of Princeton moved up 40 spots to finish at #12.
At 174, Mark Hall or Penn State moved up 9 spots after he continues to roll through Division I competition with just the 1 blemish on his record.
Lastly, at heavyweight, Nick Nevills, also of Penn State, moved up 16 spots to finish at #14.

Dual Rankings:

Penn State moves up 1 spot to take the top position this week. As was mentioned in The Open Mat’s article this week, they continue to show their dominance bonusing their opponents to an undefeated record on the season.
Oklahoma State is now in the #2 position, followed by Ohio State, Iowa, and Missouri to round out the top 5.

Tournament Rankings:

Pretty surprising, but there was NO movement among teams ranked in the top 12 of the tournament rankings. Central Michigan went up 4 spots to finish at #15.

Hodge Watch:

In our Hodge Watch, it’s starting to shape into a 2 man race between Zain Retherford of Penn State, and Gabe Dean of Cornell. Further back is Kyle Snyder of Ohio State, followed by Isaiah Martinez (Illinois), and Jason Nolf of Penn State.

WrestleStat Week 6 Rankings – 2016-2017

Week 6 rankings are ready to go this week, and there’s a new page that has been [re]-added back, Statistical Rankings!

First, for individual rankings, the ratings are starting to get closer to evening-out, with the exception of some freshman and first year wrestlers.

Some of your big movers include Cole Martin of Wisconsin at 141 moving up 7 spots to finish at #17. From Wyoming, Cole Mendenhall moved up 10 spots to go to #21 at 149. At 157, Brian Murphy of Michigan dropped 6 spots after dropping 4 matches in the last 10 days (note, 3 of those losses came from Cliff Keen, which were not included in last weeks rankings). At 165, Anthony Valencia of Arizona State made a nice bump up by 9 spots to come in at #13. Dakota Geer of Edinboro made a nice jump by 15 spots to finish #25 at 184. Lastly, at heavyweight, Gage Hutchison (Eastern Michigan) went up 25 spots to slide into the rankings at #33.

In Dual rankings, Iowa saw their rating slide by 3 spots down to #6 after pulling Clark out of the starting lineup with his undisclosed injury. NC State moves up 5 spots to #10 despite having a loss to Nebraska over the weekend.

No big changes in the Tournament rankings this week, Iowa and Virginia Tech fell by 2 spots each finishing at #5 and #6 respectively, while Ohio State and Missouri both moved up 2 spots to finish at #3 and #4 respectively. The top stays the same this week with Penn State at #1 and Oklahoma State at #2.

And back by mediocre demand, is Statistical Rankings. Right now, there are categories for most falls, tech falls, major decisions, wins, and lastly “Match Power”. I’m only calling in match power because I couldn’t remember what it was called when I was making the page and I didn’t really want to go look it up…If you’d like to see more categories added, just let me know.
