Maps of the hometowns of the qualifiers of the 2015 NCAA Wrestling Tournament

These are always fun, except I am not a fan how these conversations often veer into “MY state can beat up YOUR state” territory. We’re taking about subnational political territories. A bunch of arbitrary, imaginary lines on a map. Let’s not make too big a deal out of it.

Or lets and check out all these cool maps, whatevs!

BTW Multiple guys from the same hometown only get one pin. Sorry, that’s all the software and my laziness can do. But you still get the idea. Maybe I’ll do heat maps or something later.

That’s all I got time for now. Lots of info to unpack. Just eyeballing metropolitan areas, I’d say Cleveland wins the Awesome Wrestler Per Capita award. Well all right Cleveland!
