    Iowa State Moves to #13 in Rankings

    Iowa State has moved up to #13 in rankings.

    NCAA.com – The Official Website of NCAA Championships - Wrestling

    I find it interesting that we're still behind Virginia Tech who we beat in their house in Blacksburg, VA. On the positive side at least we're moving up.

    Team rankings don't really matter much, individual rankings is what really matters in the long run.

    Actually, that was in Salem.

    ... which is a 40 minute drive from Blacksburg - that's still "their house" as far as I'm concerned.

    Re: Iowa State Moves to #13 in Rankings

    I think we're a much better tournament team than dual team this year. I think we will qualify guys at 141, 149, 165, 174, 197, 285 (and possibly 157 if Weatherman gets himself together in the second half of the season) and of those six weights Heavy is the only one where we don't have pretty good odds of AA honors. So with six wrestlers scoring points, and several of them scoring lots of points, I think we have a very legitimate shot of being a top ten team at Nationals.

    Now in duals on the other hand, we are basically giving up 3-4 matches before the meet even starts against elite teams (125, 133, and 157 and/or 184). That's going to make it really tough for us at the National Duals and against other Big XII schools.

    I like your optimism, but I think it's also possible that Reader is the only one that makes it out of the second round at NCAA's.

    Well, one thing about Jackson is he knows how to get his wrestlers to peak at the right time. So I think we'll perform well at NCAAs.

    Heck - look at how he got the team up for Iowa. 141 and HWT were the only matches that didn't go as we hoped, and HWT was one questionable call from overtime. At 141 the Iowa guy is a lot better than expected going into the season. Not excusing the loss, but I liked that everybody on the team was put in a position to excel.

    Don't know a lot about wrestling, especially not about their ranking system, but how is a 1-0 Cornell ranked #1, ahead of the various other schools that are anywhere from 2-0 to 5-0?

    Because they won the national championship last year and didn't lose many wrestlers.

    Because it is still the on-conference and open tournament season. Those 5-0 teams are likely 5-0 against a bunch of lower division and non-elite talent.

    With Midlands and the Southern Scuffle over break and the National Duals in January (plus the conference season coming up in the second semester) we'll learn a lot more in the the next month or so. Right now all the rankings are a lot of guesswork.

    Iowa won the national championship last year.

    As to how they rank them, some rankings services view it as a power ranking, ie who is the best right now. Others base it on anticipated finish in March.

    I've tried to do the same thing. Hasn't worked for me so far.
