    Correct (I hope) NCAA scoring

    1 bonus point for major decision and tech. fall without back points.
    1.5 bonus points for tech. fall with back points.
    2 bonus points for fall/forfeit/DQ (but NOT for a bye).
    You only get the advancement/placement points from a bye if you win your next match, unless it's the last match (one of the 4 placement matches). Actually, I'm not sure what would happen with a bye in later rounds.

    1 point for advancement in championship bracket *until* the final.
    1/2 point for advancement in consolation bracket *except* the "placement" matches.

    Placement points (they get awarded as you earn guaranteed spots):
    1st 16
    2nd 12
    3rd 10
    4th 9
    5th 7
    6th 6
    7th 4
    8th 3


    If in the Championship bracket you win:

    Pigtail Round 1 -- 1 point (most wrestlers have a bye and need to win round 1 to collect this point).
    Round 1 -- 1 point (plus most wrestlers get to collect the 1 point from the pigtail round bye).
    Round 2 -- 1 point.
    Quarterfinals -- 7 points (advancement point plus guaranteed 6th (and All American)).
    Semifinals -- 7 points (advancement point plus guaranteed 2nd).
    Finals -- 4 points (no advancement point).

    If in the Consolation bracket you win:

    Pigtail Round 1 -- 0.5 points (most wrestlers have a bye and need to win the next round to collect).
    Round 1 -- 0.5 points (most wrestlers will also collect the 0.5 points from the pigtail round bye).
    Round 2 -- 0.5 points.
    Round 3 -- 0.5 points.
    Round 4 -- 3.5 point (advancement plus guaranteed 8th (and All American)).
    Cons. Quarterfinals -- 3.5 points (advancement plus guaranteed 6th).
    Cons. Semifinals -- 3.5 points (advancement plus guaranteed 4th).
    Cons. Finals -- 1 point (3rd place but no advancement).
    5th place match -- 1 point (5th place but no advancement).
    7th place match -- 1 point (7th placebut no advancement).

    Re: Correct (I hope) NCAA scoring

    cool, your numbers are correct.

    Last year, I spent an afternoon trying to figure out how they calculated the points for the ncaa's. It blows my mind how close ISU actually came to winning that tournament last year.

    I did not know that about the Round 1 scoring and the pigtails. Thanks for the info.

    Thanks for the great info. I've followed the NCAA's for many years but have never taken the time to look into exactly how the scoring is done.

    Re: Correct (I hope) NCAA scoring

    Hey, if you have any information on how the Big 12's are scored, I would greatly appreciate it. I wasted 2 hrs banging my head aginst the wall trying to figure those scores out.

    I'm sure they will be in Ames next year (finally) and I will follow them closely. Thanks again for the info.
