Here is a picks game for the 2008 NCAA Division III Wrestling Championships.
1.Â You get 5000 points.Â Each wrestler is worth a certain number of points based on their ranking.Â You cannot go over 5000 when making your team but under is fine.
2.Â You do not have to pick a wrestler from every weight if you do not want to.Â You may may only choose a maximum of one wrestler per weight.
3.Â You score points only when your wrestler places in the National tournament.Â The point value you score corresponds with the price of each ranking.Â ie.Â #1 ranked wrestler costs 1000 pts.Â 1st place earns 1000 pts.; #2 rank costs 900 pts, 2nd place earns 900 points
4.Â Team with the most points wins.
5. Tiebreaking criteria:
a. Most total NCAA champions on your team
b. Most total All-Americans
c. Team with most wrestlers to win at least one match
d. Tiebreaker to be determined later (if necessary)
