Thread: 11/18 Intermat Rankings

    Default 11/18 Intermat Rankings

    http://www.intermatwrestle.com/colle...ksNov1808.aspx

    Penn State falls to #14, Hofstra enters the rankings at #16 as a result of the dual on Saturday.

    In terms of the big individual upsets from last weekend, Marable falls to #4, and Lucas falls to #8. Rendos and Wright are ranked at #14, and #16 respectively.

    Gophers broke out of their #12 tie with Wisconsin for some reason to take over #11 all by themselves.

    I wouldnt put too much stock in those rankings. They have Joe Slaton as #1 at 133. He isnt even the varstiy wrestler yet and they have Iowa State down with a 0-0 record when they beat Utah Valley last week. I caught those two mistakes right off the bat. There might be more if it was really disected.

    I know it's early in the season and all the lineups arent set yet, but I don't see how they can rank Joe if the head coach has said that Dennis is the man for now.

    Things will come out in the wash. I don't want to discourage guys from coming up with these as I really like looking at them. The minute they hit enter the rankings can become obsolete.

    A couple quick things on the rankings:

    1. InterMat, AWN, WIN and Rev all have Slaton in the rankings as #1 so to just point out InterMat would be wrong.

    2. We often talk to many of the coaches who tell us who we should still be ranking. There are several cases in the rankings where the winner of the 'wrestle off' is not the person who is ranked.

    3. The Iowa State and Hofstra records was an oversight. We will make our best effort to ensure that does not happen.

    Rankings are anything but a pure science.

    That's true but these came out on the 18th. Iowa State won their dual on the 13th and Dan Dennis has been the starter for a week now. I like reading them too but I also like reading them when I think they are as recent as they can be.

    As I mentioned the Iowa State and Hofstra, were an oversight. I apologize that we made an error.

    Secondly, as I said, all the rankings groups in their Nov 18 ranking used Slaton as #1.

    Often we speak to coaches directly about who should be ranked.

    Thanks for the correction. We posted at the same time. Had I read that I would not have posted.

    The Lions have dropped seven slots, despite the emergence of Quentin Wright. With another injury to their roster at 197, someone else will now need
    to step up.
