Greg Anderson and Dan Seifring get their geek on with WrestleStat

Several years ago, Greg Anderson was thinking about the Iowa wrestling lineup and wondered how to compare Thomas Gilman and Cory Clark. Then he put some stats to work, some automation and then got some help from Dan Seifring out in New Jersey.

Almost five years later, WrestleStat is proving another computer resource for fans to compare teams, compare wrestlers and also provide an engine for fantasy wrestling leagues around the country.

Anderson and Seifring talk about the meeting of the minds, where it's gone from its genesis and how it's expanded to Division II as well. The pair explains the data entry that goes into it, the automation that kicks out of it and the computer rankings that it provides.
