January 23rd, 2017 Dual Impact Index

 

Here’s how to make sense of these numbers:

Individual rankings: Basically, all wrestlers set to 100 at the start of the calculation, and the opponents’ rankings having 30, 40, 50, or 60, depending on the type of victory (to correspond with dual scoring), either added or subtracted from it in each cycle. When the numbers stabilize to three digits (the one-thousandths place), the rankings are finalized for the week.

 

Minimum numbers of matches for the season to be listed remain at five against other Division I opponents, however, matches against your teammates no longer count towards that number.In order to be ranked, however, it is also a requirement that a wrestler participate in a single-entry (or ten-overall) tournament or dual meet, attached. Wrestlers who have met the five-match requirement, but not the single-entry requirement, are listed in red. Wrestlers who have met both requirements, but are not the best wrestler at the weight on their team, are listed in yellow.

All team metrics are now active.

 

Dual-Results:

 

Based on the results of duals themselves. Figured the same way as the individual rankings, with each team being given +/- 30 points for a win or a loss, plus or minus one point for each match the dual is won or lost by. Criteria points are not included in this figure.

 

Tournament-Strength:

 

Teams are given points on the same scale points are earned at the NCAA Championships, with bonus points.

 

Dual-Component:

 

Teams are matched up in mock duals based on how the individual wrestlers are rated. Bonus points are given at a margin of 35, 45, and 55 points, to simulate major decisions, technical falls, and falls, respectively. The number listed is the number of mock duals won.

 

Roster-Component:

 

Similar to the Dual-Component ranking, but includes redshirts. Basically, what things might look like if every single coach in the country pulled all of their wrestlers out of redshirt.

 

Columns:

 

WL: Based on only wins and losses (Dual-Results only)

MOV: Based on only margin of victory/scoring of bonus points (Dual-Results only)

SOS: Strength of Schedule

Total: Win/Loss plus MOV (Dual-Results only)

Brown has yet to wrestle a dual meet, but I have waived the requirement that their wrestlers participate in a single-entry (or ten-overall) meet for all of their wrestlers except for one, who is not currently listed on their roster.

Team metrics have debuted, with the exception of the Dual-Results ranking, which will debut next week.

On a personal note, the support I’ve gotten during a very trying week has been truly humbling. While I no longer will be working for Intermat, I do anticipate continuing to be around the sport in the near future.

The Dual Impact Index

Please note that effective immediately, the Dual Impact Index and the National Collegiate Open have terminated their sponsorship agreement. Just to be clear, the Dual Impact Index has never accepted money for its sponsorship, and I highly hope never will. It will continue in its current form, with or without sponsorship, for as long as I am capable.

Sincerely,
