Question about the rankings

I apologize in advance if my question is naive. I'm one of those wrestling mothers guest just took a gentle poke at - but I'm not writing to tell you how great my wrestler is, honest! I'm just trying to understand how all of this works.

So my question is, how do you get the information upon which you base your rankings? Looking at the site, I see that many of my school's matches aren't even showing up in the box scores. Am I correct in assuming that all the results are somehow reported somewhere (to you presonally or to some central location to which you have access)? I am truly awed by your knowledge but surely you'd have to be clairvoyant to know all of this without some formal reporting structure... where do you get your data?

I assume that Jason gets a lot of the results from reading the reports from the local papers or by loooking at the tournament results

Presnitz: If there aren't any boxscores from your team's dual meets, it's your fault. Well, someone from your team's fault anyway. I don't have time to collect boxscores all day. Submit them yourself if they aren't there! No offense but there's over 350 boxscores from this season alone and I submitted perhaps a dozen of them. I simply don't have time with a full time job already to handle that kind of volumous data entry.

I say `volumous' is close enough (we got the idea and, besides, who would think an ex-wrestler even knew such a big word?)

I too get a kick out of the teams that complain about rankings when so few of their own results show up in the box scores.

Wow

I'm sure "presnitz" won't ask another question on this site again...it seemed to me she was just asking a question, not complaining about rankings

Oops. You got me! At least I meant well...and get at least all my three syllable words spelled correctly. The question is, did you look up the word on dictionary.com? The first few results for the word I meant are all dictionary references.

Jack, thanks for the credit, haha...I've been reading more books lately, I guess.

Anyways. Sorry for being grumpy...I'm unhappy about the feedback on the video commentary now and I'm not getting the right hours of sleep.

I really did not mean to complain! (and as you can see I haven't yet been scared off...) My question was, whether the rankings you post here are based on the box scores as we report them, or whether you get the scores from some other, official, central source. It's simply my unquenchable thirst for knowledge. Just for the record I am awed by and grateful for the generosity and wisdom of so many of you on this list and I apologize if guest or anyone else thought I was whining.

Just havin some fun Mike...since you guys bagged me bein lazy at the keys a few weeks back... (I knew the spelling, but did check on definitions though...good call).
A few thoughts: I tried to download the dvx stuff on my home computer, but still cannot see the video...I know I did something wrong, but WHAT is the question.
But THANK YOU Mike and Jason your both doing great work and of course you know that many, many people log on and read/watch!!!
Jason: take what is valuable from the criticism (minus the insults) and you will get better at both the rankings and commentary...but most of all, do not lose sight of the fact that this enterprise is helping wrestling greatly in Mass. and some DO realise the time and effort you must be putting into the sport.

Guest regarding what sources I use for the rankings I use boxscores posted here, google news to find out wrestling news in Mass, tournament results posted here, suggestions posted online, and tons of emails that I get from Coaches, Wrestlers, and Parents from all over the state. I have contacts from all over the state that help me stay informed and occasionally I visited masslive.com if my W.mass soures havebeen quiet. Hope that helped!
