Team scores based on rankings

16

A few years ago, I calculated the average number of team points for each placewinner at the NCAA Championships. Using that data, here is a predicted top ten team scores based on the final d3wrestle.com rankings. This is done without respect for placement in the bracket, as the seedings do not match the rankings. Thus, #1 and #2 could potentially have meet before the finals at 141, 157, and 285, but that will not be accounted for here. Numbers 1-10 were given the average score, contenders received 1 point, and dark horses did not score in this exercise, as the 15th-18th wrestlers in the bracket typically do not win a match. That said, this is a poor approximation of how the tournament would actually have gone. Almost anything can happen, and it is a shame we did not get to see how it would have actually played out.
