Dual-Result Rankings: Based on results of dual meets only. The ranking is very similar to the Individual ranking, except that the factor is 30 points plus one point for each match the dual was won or lost by. For tied dual meets, the factor is zero.
Individual Rankings: The basic idea is an iterative one. Begin with all wrestlers set to an even rating -- 100 in this case. Then, for each match wrestled, give each wrestler the value of their opponent's rating plus or minus a factor for winning or losing the match -- 30 by decision, 40 by major/tech-four, 50 by tech-five, 60 by fall. Total all of a wrestler's results, divide by the number of matches wrestled, and that's the end of a cycle. Then use those numbers as the start of the next cycle until you get the same results for each wrestler for two consecutive cycles.
Note: Wrestlers will not be listed unless they have competed in 30% of their team's entire team-scoring schedule at that weight class.
Tournament: Done based on the individual rankings, on a 21-17-14.5-13.5-11-10-7.5-6.5-3-3-3-3-2.5-2.5-2.5-2.5-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1 basis, to simulate non-bonus scoring at NCAA's.
