  1. Sorry it took so long, some things take longer than you would like (including going through every wrestler on Track Wrestling to get their scoring contribution), but here are the results for my fantasy wrestling side project. LINK TO RESULTS Some notes: I appreciate Everyone who gave feedback. I plan to do this again and I will certainly take all feedback into consideration. I wish I had more time to do some more analysis on teams and wrestlers, but I can't right now (I may add a comment later if I find the time) What I found for now is: L. Aiken at 220 was the best bang for your buck (unless I missed someone). 7 out of the top 10 teams had L.Aiken 11 of the top 12 teams included K. Montgomery at 120 The top team in the state tournament (Cathedral) would have placed 72nd in this competition Average team score was about 83 with a standard deviation of about 19.4. (average is about where I wanted it, but more variance always makes it more exciting I might do a similar set up for the NCAA tournament coming up, but I have an idea that may make it easier and possibly more enjoyable for everyone The simulation that I coded for the state tournament predicted the exact outcome for the heavyweight bracket 12 times which was probably the least likely of all 14 (I've only checked a few) D. Keys won about 11% of the simulated brackets and won about 48% of the times he made it to the finals. next year, I plant to improve this simulation (or at least try to) I did not do tie breaker criteria, so there are ties (a lot actually) I'll take the blame for the amount of ties, the budget was lower than I meant for it to be, but by the time I realized, it was too late, and the abundance of DNP's lowered the variation There were some issues with bracket changes this year, but those cannot be avoided. Thank you for dealing with those and letting me know There were some other issues with the process of collecting and analyzing teams and their scores, i plan to find a better way to do all of this next time. Thanks for welcoming my little experiment and thank you to everyone who took part! Can't wait til next time!! Cheers, "MAT"-lab_R2017a
  2. Results should be up tomorrow. Sorry about the wait, but my meeting today lasted longer than it should have, leaving me little time to work on the scoring.
  3. IMPORTANT: there was a change to the 182 bracket, a transform if you will. Some may even call it a Laplace Transform 😂, but it has affected pricing as N. Brown (that name may be wrong) and J. Laplace was a pretty substantial change. You are free to change your submission at any time. This should be pretty easy if you gave an email. If not, PM me your team name and I can get you the edit link (if the team has a indianamat account associated,that must be the account that PMs me). If N. Brown remains as a choice for a team, He will be replaced with a random wrestler at 182 that costs 125 (N.Brown's cost). This is the best solution I could come up with on short notice, if you have any other ideas, PLEASE let me know.
  4. Should be at the bottom of the email. If you still do not see it, let me know and i can send it to you.
  5. If you did not include an email, I can PM you the link to edit your team. If you do not wish to edit, I will post a spreadsheet on Friday with team names and team members only so everyone can see their team. I have since added a message under the email section letting people know that they should include an email if they wish to see or edit later. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
  6. NOTE: none of that info (other than team name) is required. If you win, I will only list Indianamat username. If there is no indianamat username, I may use first name (maybe last initial) so people can Identify if they have won. If there is only team name, I can only list team name, obviously.

  7. Great Question! Your team will receive the team points earned by the wrestler as given by trackwrestling. (including team points that are taken away)
  8. Update: I just became aware of the change in the 138 bracket. It should not make an insane change to most things. I don't have time to run the simulation for the new bracket, so I will add M. White with an estimated price based on a wrestler from another weight in a similar situation and remove Schoeff. This is the best I can do as to not change too many prices for 138. Just an FYI, you can edit your submission until 6 PM on Friday
  9. Information Here is a little side project I've been working on. I've done it in previous years with just some friends and family, but this year I decided to open it up to anyone. The idea is pretty simple. You're given a certain amount of "money" and you are then able to "buy" one wrestler in each weight class. Everything was based off of the Indiana mat brackets with rankings. The accuracy of the pricing is only as accurate as the rankings provided. The winner may receive a small prize, but no guarantees. If you have any questions or concerns please let me know. (Especially if there are major mistakes and/or problems) Pricing: The pricing of wrestlers was determined by a Monte Carlo simulation of the entire tournament that was ran 1,000,000 times per weight class. The price is based on the average placement of the wrestler, causing some interesting outcomes. To be honest, this was probably overkill, but I enjoyed it. If people are interested, I can post more later about this simulation and elaborate a little more. LINK P.S. The form will close on Friday Night at exactly 6 PM
