WIN’S NCAA DIVISION I TOURNAMENT POWER INDEX, DUAL TEAM AND INDIVIDUAL RANKINGS FOR NOV.

12, 2012
Nov. 12, 2012 NEWTON, Iowa — Wrestling Insider Newsmagazine (WIN) has released its first regular-season NCAA Division I college ratings, which includes the magazine’s first Tournament Power Index, Team Dual rankings and individual ratings per each of the ten college weight classes. These rankings include action through Nov. 11, which also includes the NWCA All-Star Classic that was held on Nov. 3. While the results from the all-star meet will not help determine the eventual seedings for the national tournament next March, WIN does include those performances in its rankings. The WIN TPI does not rank teams according to dual meet performances. Instead, WIN also ranks teams in a separate Dual Team Rankings. In working to compile the most accurate rankings possible during the season, WIN seeks to subjectively combine both the most recent week’s and season’s results with past performance and proven records of consistency. Those results, in regards to who’s wrestling well, are balanced against who have proven they can win the big matches towards the end of the year and those who will most likely place high or win the national tournament in March. The WIN TPI is compiled by awarding points to each team for the ranked wrestlers they have in WIN’s current individual rankings that can be found below in all ten weight classes. In a sense, it suggests how many points these teams could score at this year’s NCAA tournament, March 21-23, in Des Moines, Iowa. TPI points will not match the final NCAA tournament points because it does not include bonus points for pins, technical falls, major decisions and forfeits/defaults. Teams are awarded points based on how many potential All-Americans (Top 8 wrestlers) they could have and get advancement points for wrestlers ranked No. 9-20. The order of teams in the TPI vary greatly from dual meet rankings, as some teams have a number of highly-ranked individuals but may have holes in their dual meet line-up. Point totals associated with individual rankings are as followed: 1st – 20 (16 AA points + 4 advancement points); 2nd – 16 (12+4); 3rd – 13.5 (10+3.5); 4th – 12. 5 (9+3.5); 5th – 10 (7+3); 6th – 9 (6+3); 7th – 6.5 (4+2.5); 8th – 5.5 (3+2.5); 9th/12th – 2; 13th/16th – 1.5; 17th-20th – 1.
