d3wrestle.com Rankings #4 – December 10, 2013

After a busy weekend, here is a new set of rankings. Several All-Americans lost this weekend, shaking up a few weights. The team rankings are also updated. It is worth mentioning that the formula used in the team rankings is designed to predict the team standings at the NCAA tournament. Therefore, teams that finished behind other teams in tournaments, or even lost in dual meets, may appear above those teams here. This is how the NCAA Championships work. For example, Oshkosh is ranked 14th here, even though they finished behind #35 Wheaton and #25 Central at the MSOE Invitational this weekend. Based on these individual rankings, we predict that Oshkosh would outscore both of those teams at the NCAA Championships primarily on the strength 2x defending champ Nazar Kulchytskyy and current #4 Dan Schiferl. Understanding the team ranking criteria will help make sense of what you see below. Here is the team ranking formula again:

12 points for #1, 11 for #2, 10 for #3….all the way down to 3 points for #10
Contenders are worth 2 points, Honorable Mentions are worth 1 point
Not having a wrestler listed is -1 point.
