Here's a guideline to what the numbers all mean:
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.
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.
Dual-Component: Based on the Individual Ranking numbers, each team is compared side-by-side with each other team. Teams are given three points for their wrestler being ahead of another team's wrestler, plus one additional point for being 40, 50, and 60 points ahead, to signify major decisions, technical falls, and falls. Teams are scored based on the numbers of such comparisons won, with ties broken by head-to-head comparisons, and then by, if the teams are tied, dual-advancement tiebreak criteria.
