I understand that it is not a ranking or a projection, even though it is presented in that fashion. What is it? You've got a guy in a wrong weight and a returning finalist who doesnt make the list, even though he's back. Iowa is listed below Penn St in the dual component, becuase their schedule isnt strong enough? But they beat Penn St.
I guess I just don't know what the TWMDII is for. Please let me know. I appreciate all of the work you do for the good of wrestling, but WHAT THE HECK IS IT?
weh nailed it on the head about three posts down. If I have a guy in a wrong weight, it's because he hasn't wrestled enough in his new weight, and with the national finalist, he hasn't wrestled enough either. If you're talking about who I think you are, Montell Marion will crack the rankings for the first time this upcoming weekend should he wrestle against Mike Thorn, and Mark Ballweg will not be in the rankings at 149 unless and until he wrestles in his national qualifier.
As far as the dual component ranking, that's comparing the duals based solely on the rankings. Bear in mind that the dual-result ranking doesn't include performances at events such as Midlands, whereas the dual-component ranking does. I think even the staunchest Iowa supporter would tell you that Iowa's Midlands performance was substandard, and it affects them in the dual component ranking.
