Great statistical analysis. 

http://www.wrestlingcoachacademy.com/depth-analysis-2012-2013-2014-division-1-ncaa-wrestling-championships/#sthash.w56LGzwb.ifsgoe4u.dpbs

Some highlights from article:

In this chart, the total points scored are used to calculate percentages.  But if we look at scoring opportunities (regardless of point value) the breakdowns are as follows:

63 scoring situations occurred from neutral
84 scoring situations occurred from bottom

24 scoring situations occurred from top
5 scoring situations occurred from penalties (stalling & locked hands)

The most frequent scoring position in college wrestling is clearly the bottom position, with neutral coming in second.  Coaches, it might be time to rethink your practice design and program some more mat work.

Some take aways:
1) Drill Stand Ups

2) Drill Mat Returns
3) Drill Single Legs.

In that order.
At least 10,000 of each technique every year.

Start rewriting your practice plans now.

If you want to be NCAA champion you better start wrestling at an early age,have well above average strength,have access to really good coaches throughout carer,and have the kind of body that can take the rigors of borderline inhumane training.

The training day in and day out coupled w/ weight cutting every week is extremely taxing and most people's bodies simply break down. Several guys at that level are freaky strong and athletic whether they look it or not.

From an MMA perspective I think the above shows why wrestlers are so damn good at getting up off the bottom. They have spent their whole life learning how not to be held down by someone trying to hold them down that weighs the same as they do and is just as strong. Phone Post 3.0
