The 55th Midlands Team Points Based On Preseeds

The brackets for the 55th Midlands are out! Those brackets came with seeds, which means assuming no one gets injured and everyone makes weight, we can project finishes, and thus team points, based on those seeds. 

We ran the numbers just like we do for our team tournament top 20 rankings. Based off that scoring rubric and assuming everyone wrestles to their seed, our team scores turn out as follows:

This doesn't take bonus points into consideration. Additionally, more points will be scored for advancement, as seeding stopped at 16, and some weights had as few as eight seeded wrestlers. 

And obviously anything can happen between now and the end of the tournament. So make sure you tune in and watch LIVE on Flo! Action begins tomorrow at 9:30AM CT.
