The crew at MatStats continues their study on potential changes on team scoring.  This Episode examines the concept of continuing the Margin of Victory dual meet scoring with the inclusion of Placement Points for tournaments.  Using the data from Men's D1 Championships (1988-1992 & 2017-2022), MatStats contends that we should change the scoring at tournaments to enable more fans to understand it and increase scoring and action.  Wade Schalles joins the show to add his perspective.Get the PDF of the slideshow: https://www.mattalkonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/09/matstats-13-1.pdfAbout Mat Stats & State of WrestlingWelcome to the NWCA’s latest venture to help our favorite sport.

The dual meet is one of the great features our sport has to welcome new fans, to pack arenas and to see how one team matches up with another. While dual meet scoring has undergone some changes over the past 50-plus years, does the team scoring metric adequately represent the scoring that takes place within the men’s college structure of 10 weight classes? Glenn Gormley, Kevin Hazard and Jason Bryant dive into the topic with Gormley’s Margin of Victory method. Some suggested practices have a point scored is a point earned factoring into the team score. Wrestling journalists Andy Hamilton and Kyle Klingman did a deep dive on this several years ago on that method and Hall of Famer Wade Schalles has offered versions of it for well over two decades. Well, what did the MatStats crew uncover? The study includes two 5-year periods (1988-1992 & 2017-2022). We also look at three memorable college duals in history and see how the scoring could have impacted those meets. MatStats analyzes yearly changes, weight class differences, and scoring changes as the rounds progress through the tournament. A great way to learn about changes in the sport in the last 30 years.Get the PDF of the slideshow: https://www.mattalkonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/MatStats12ss.pdfAbout Mat Stats & State of WrestlingWelcome to the NWCA’s latest venture to help our favorite sport.

There are 32 conferences in the Division I athletics landscape. Among the 350 Division I schools, there will be 81 that have wrestling at the start of the 2023-24 season. Those 81 teams will be spread across 28 different all-sports conferences and collected into seven conferences that sponsor wrestling. All 14 Big Ten schools sponsor the sport. Six of the ACC’s 15 schools sponsor the sport. The other five conferences are a collection of conference names with affiliate schools populating them and one 17-team wrestling-only conference. According to host Jason Bryant, It’s time we stopped the contraction of wrestling conferences and create more conferences with more qualifying tournaments, aligning schools with peer institutions instead of putting giant geographically inadequate conferences together for the sake of qualifying and get to having conferences that promote competitive dynamics and have the potential for growth. This episode of the Mat Stats show is Jason Bryant’s plan to renovate college wrestling and he’s starting with the conference structure. While this show is part of the NWCA’s offerings, Bryant’s proposal is his own and not on any NWCA agenda. Download the slideshow: https://bit.ly/renovatelink
