Re: Women's Conference and World tournament computer rankings
I’m with you Gmelt. I wrestled for 17 years(freestyle, high school, college and then freestyle again)and never put any stock into what a person is ranked. Baseball/softball are a lot like wrestling. I call them “individual team sports” . Meaning although you’re on a team but when you’re on offense it’s one on one. Probably doesn’t make sense but the point is that in those sports an individual can get hot and change a game/sport.
Rankings....shcmankings!!! Upsets are why we watch sports and rankings help to manufacture excitement!!! In reality though they mean jack dookie!!!! Although in 20 years at a high school reunion you will inevitably hear “I’m homeless right now but remember when our JV water polo team was ranked 48th in the tri state, intergalactic milky way galaxy league?!
