Thread: NCAA Seeding Info

    Default NCAA Seeding Info

    Here is the info I found from the NCAA website regarding seeding:

    Championships
    The Division I Wrestling Committee will determine the seeds for each weight class in the championships. At no time will lobbying or supplying of additional materials be allowed. Coaches attempting to lobby or supply additional materials may be cited for misconduct.
    A selected representative from each qualifying tournament is responsible for submitting the list of qualifiers and updated individual season record forms for all qualifiers to be considered for seeding. This must be completed online via the NWCA Web site at www.nwcaonline.com/nwcaonline/default.aspx immediately after the respective qualifying tournament. In addition, each qualifying tournament manager must submit to Amber Feldman (Randy L. Buhr?s assistant) at the NCAA national office by facsimile transmission (317/917-6235), immediately after the respective
    qualifying tournament, one copy of the tournament results for each weight class.
    Final seedings and pairings are made by the Division I Wrestling Committee. Pairing sheets will be distributed via an Internet announcement after 6 p.m. Eastern time Monday, March 16. These pairings are not to be released by any other media outlet before the official NCAA announcement.

    Me too, LoST. That just doesn't make much sense does it?

    i do NOT like where this seems to be heading -where a coach may not stand up for his guy .The selection committees will have all the power as opposed to just having most of it .

    Could someone help me understand how the NCAA Championship starts in Saint Louis? I was looking at last years brackets and you have pigtail brackets and the champion brackets. Does your ranking determine the pigtail bouts? How many wrestlers max can be in one weight class?

    One pigtail bout per weight class. It will be randomly drawn into the bracket, so the #1 seed could get a pigtail bout. 33 max/min wrestlers per weightclass.

    Just a guess, but I think this means the form has to be used, no other communication can be used or it will be considered lobbying. So they make their decisions off the filled out forms.
    See you in St. Louis!
