WrestleStat Rankings – Week 16 2018-2019

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 %)
