    Default College Wrestling Rankings - Pre-Season NCAA D1 Wrestling

    Please read before voting: We have finished a ranking tool that should be a very fun addition to the wrestling community! I am going to outline
    all of the benefits and how this ranking system works.

    Voting Weight: Are you a heavyweight, or a light weight? Users, based on their forum standing, are given a "weight" in the polls. There are several
    factors that play a role in deciding how many votes you are worth as a poster, to keep the rankings unbiased, we will not be releasing what these factors are.

    How it Works: You enter the voting booth and select from the available names for each question. You must select a minimum of 5 per category, however, we suggest you select the All American's or Top 10. At the end of the week, the community's votes are released as TheWrestlingTalk Rankings. You will see the post appear in the College Wrestling forum.

    Everyone can vote, and if you have an issue, please ask! Don't be surprised to see errors at weight classes- we need your guidance in getting everyone where they should be.

    when do we get to see the first results?

    i think it was a great idea to do this as we will only have ourselves to blame if we have guys ranked too high or too low...

    i might reconsider weighting the votes by the number of posts a person has as I for example am not as learned in these areas as say Trusty or Dart Shark yet my vote would be more heavily weighted?

    i suppose that just puts more pressure on me to vote carefully...

    good stuff js

    Don't worry, Post count is only one of several factors that calculate the end result, it is actually a (albeit basic) algorithm I pulled from a search script and tweaked. The results are going to be posted Sept 24th. (I wanted to make sure I got enough data this first time- in season they will be released every week.)

    I'm still kind of interested myself in how things are going to turn out. With guys not being differentiated in how they're selected, just being selected.

    Never the less, the rankings will be out on the 24th, and I'm excited to see how they turn out.

    We can generate the results both ways (w/ and w/o the weighting) too..

    what will really be interesting is to watch them change from week to week even before they start wrestling...lol
