    Yeah, not many favors from the seeding committee. Do we know what the final team scores would be if everyone wrestled to their seed with no bonus points?

    ISU is going to need all the help they can get to win the NC.

    Re: NCAA Tournament Wrestling Brackets

    The 8 and 9 seeds get the #1 in the quarterfinals if they get there.

    Not sure how Brestrer gets #1 over Varner when Varner beat him 2 out of 3 and much more convincingly than the win that Brester eeked out last week. I guess its all about what have you done lately.

    Re: NCAA Tournament Wrestling Brackets

    Yeah, the seeding always favors the most recent results. Quick thoughts:
    -Mitch Mueller (149), Cyler Sanderson (157), Duke Burk (174) and Jerome Ward (184) will have a hard time staying in the championship bracket past Thursday night.
    -Nick Gallick (141) has wrestled and beaten Cleveland and Jaggers. If he can do it again, he'd get a rematch against Tanelli from Wisconsin in the semis.
    -Zabriskie (HWT) will have at least three overtime matches in this tournament.
    -Tyler Clark (125) and Nick Fanthorpe (133) have tough but winnable draws.

    -Iowa is seeded pretty well. They're even heavier favorites in my mind, now, though I haven't looked at Cornell or Ohio State's seeding.
    -Oklahoma State could easily finish out of the top 7 with a bad tournament, despite qualifying nine. Tough draws all around.

    Re: NCAA Tournament Wrestling Brackets

    Every match down at the national tourney is a tough match!


    I thought that alot of the clones got pretty good draws.

    Name (Round they should make it into at least)
    Clark (QF), Fanthrope (QF), Gallick (QF), Sanderson (2nd), Reader(QF), Burk(winnable 1st round), Varner (Semi/ Finals), and Z (QF/Semi)

    Mueller and Ward got really tough draws but thats what happens when you don't get seeded.

    Re: NCAA Tournament Wrestling Brackets

    Eek. Tough, tough draws for these guys.

    I was a bit surprised to see Brester get the #1 over Varner, but it seemed the NCAA felt Varner didn't deserve it after his meltdown in the conference tournament. That's fair. His draw is not really worse than Brester's and I hope they rematch in the finals. Varner best be hungry to win it all.

    Based on how we have performed this year I don't see us winning it all after seeing these seedings. However, if we go through a similar mentality change like the guys did after losing to Iowa then maybe we'll surprise some people.

    Wrestling to seed with no bonus points and assuming this scoring system here are the top 5 teams:
    1st = 20 points
    2nd = 16 points
    3rd = 13.5 points
    4th = 12.5 points
    5th = 10 points
    6th = 9 points
    7th = 6.5 points
    8th = 5.5 points
    Seeded 9th through 12th = 2 points as you need to win at least once on the championship side and probably twice if you lose your first match to finish in this range even though it isn't AA status.
    Unseeded = 0 points but will probably result in some

    Team totals based on seeds:
    Iowa 103.5
    Ohio St 64.5
    Nebraska 62
    ISU 61.0
    Cornell 60.5

    Edit: I forgot about Nebraska

    Re: NCAA Tournament Wrestling Brackets

    You're 1 short on advancement points for each person. The champ will have 21, runner-up 17, etc. Doesn't change the team placings, but does change the points.

    4. Iowa State, 68
    5. Nebraska, 67

    Re: NCAA Tournament Wrestling Brackets

    How many points would a champion score if he pinned his way through? We have not been good at getting bonus points so I wonder how bad this will hurt us.

    And Metcalf has been pinning anyone and everyone that steps on the mat with him. He embarrassed #2 Bubba two weeks ago and easily pinned him.
