WIN’s 2010-11 Preseason Tournament Power Index (TPI)

Updated: October 7, 2010

September 22, 2010

NEWTON, Iowa — Wrestling Insider Newsmagazine (WIN) released its first preseason NCAA Division I Tournament Power Index (TPI) and individual rankings for the 2010-11 season.

The Tournament Power Index (TPI) predicts where teams will finish in the NCAA Tournament.

The TPI is compiled by awarding points to each team for the ranked wrestlers listed in WIN’s current individual rankings. Teams are awarded points based on how many potential All-Americans they could have and get advancement points for wrestlers ranked No. 9-20.

Point totals associated with individual rankings are as followed: 1st – 20 (16 AA points + 4 advancement points); 2nd – 16 (12+4); 3rd – 13.5 (10+3.5); 4th – 12. 5 (9+3.5); 5th – 10 (7+3); 6th – 9 (6+3); 7th – 6.5 (4+2.5); 8th – 5.5 (3+2.5); 9th/12th – 2; 13th/16th – 1.5; 17th-20th – 1. TPI points do not match the final NCAA tournament points because it does not include bonus points for pins, technical falls, major decisions and forfeits/defaults.

WIN will release an updated preseason rankings and TPI in late October once coaches have determined what weights their athletes will compete. In January, WIN will also announce a dual meet ranking, separate from the TPI.
