Hello WrestleStat Friends
First thank you to everyone that has helped us with the testing of the draft system for the upcoming FCW season. Your feedback is valuable and much appreciated.
If you have completed a draft and go into your league home page you will see a few tabs. If you click the “Schedule” tab you will see your teams weekly match-ups. From there if you click “View” you get a detailed view of that weeks match-up. You will see projected points (though a very crude formula is being used right now), and how many duals and tournaments your wrestlers team is scheduled to wrestle that week. There will be changes/additions to the information displayed on this page, but it’s just a starting point to get something out there. And if you are like me, you would have seen that you didn’t have a full roster starting for the week. If that is the case, you can click “Home” and “Update Roster” and make any changes you wish to. Obviously there have not been many schedules released yet but as they are released and we update them to WrestleStat, projected points will change.
Remember these leagues you drafted are only beta and they will be cleared out before we go live closer to the season so play with the trade function and don’t worry if a trade isn’t equitable, we just want to make sure the process works. And there is still time to set up additional leagues and do more drafts. We have drafts happening everyday it seems. Click the link to go to our draft page FCW Draft Page if you don’t have a registered account you can set one up for free.
If you drafted a league and you were the only “live” player we may have purged your league just to clean up the number of leagues we see on our end. If that is the case, you can start a new league or join one that is open to the public and draft a new team.
Also we are finalizing how the scoring will work as we are talking with many wrestling fans getting their input and sharing our thoughts. We would like to have that out to everyone by the end of August.

Hello WrestleStat Friends
You are getting a sneak peak at our Fantasy College Wrestling page, the latest addition to WrestleStat.com. At this point we just ask that you play around with setting up a league and going through a draft. After the draft you can propose trades with other members, or add and drop wrestlers via Free Agency. Remember you are only testing the system don’t worry about making trades that are amicable. The league you set up now will NOT come over when we go live with the FCW system.
We purposely did not give you rules or instructions as to how this works because we want to see how user friendly it is now and how hard it might be to figure out. I assure you we will have rules well before we go live. Also you will not find how the scoring works or anything like that at this point. At this point we just want you to test setting up a league and going through the draft process. You can also join any league that others have set up that don’t require a password.
After setting up a league you can invite others to join your league or just go ahead and click “Fill With SIM Users” to get you to 10 league members (at this time we are set up for 10 team leagues). Our system will draft for any non “real” players. That is the only instructions I am going to give you at this time.
We really want to get your feedback so please email us as many times as you would like, please send all emails to email@example.com. This is a work in process and we are planning on your feedback and implementing changes that our users recommend.

Here’s our last set of rankings for the season. Reminder, this is NOT just a copy/paste of where the wrestlers finished; this is just like any other week where there are additional results that need factored. No additional weighting is applied to NCAA tournament results either.
One thing I’d like to point out with the rankings. This year, WrestleStat placed 6th out of 9 in the 2nd annual “Rank the Rankers”, put on by a user on “The Mat” forums. Here’s a link to the thread showing the results if you’d like to look at those. One comment on these results, if you take out the results from 157 or 285, WrestleStat would have finished 1st. I know, manipulating numbers to support an argument…..I think it just shows that the WrestleStat algorithm made HUGE strides since last season and performed quite well.
So, here are the rankings:
