Added a new chart today. Been tracking conference strength based on total points of ranked wrestlers (inverted scale, 20-1 points). Top conference is obvious (Big Ten, der), but what’s the second best conference? The definitive answer is up for debate, but by this metric its clearly the ACC, at least according to the latest Intermat rankings.
EIWA started out as #2 but have since fallen, or more accurately been overtaken, by the MAC and the ACC. Rest of the conferences in order are Big 12, WWC, EWL, Pac12 and SoCon, in case anyone was wondering.
And here’s the updated point matrix by team.
Still super early in the season though. Plenty is going to change between now and March I’m sure.
