Welcome to stat city. Watch how Jack Bauer brings statistical backed facts to the realm of shit talking, showing who's hot and who's not in OCR...as well as some super controversial heated arguments between Beni and Brakken at the end of the episode covering: -How (with cited sources) Isaiah Vidal is by FAR the athlete with the most complaints filed against him for mid race unsportsmanlike conduct (and the juicy deets of those instances)... -The argument that Hobie Call is NOT the greatest OCR athlete because he's just been riding the title of "godfather" to his victories... -Defense of the statement that Robert Killian has greater range than Ryan Atkins does... ...and muuuuuuch more!

Jack Bauer, the mind behind the massive Spartan ranking system, joins me on the podcast to talk all about the top women in the elite field. We begin with talking about the "Fab 5" elite women and who it has consisted of, and how it might be changing. We have a long discussion full of stats about most all of the top women currently in the field, and where we think they'll end up by championship season. This leads me to ask for Jack's opinion on whether the wide variety of course types in the Spartan USNS will affect the top placing. Jack then gives me plenty of head-to-head stats from the women's field, and I ask him if he thinks that some of the slower starts this year are due to the fact that the series started so early. We get briefly sidetracked by some of the men's competition, and we then discuss the women that dominated the field years ago, and how they would stack up against the top women's field today. Jack goes one to tell me which women had the most podiums each year. We then get into the topic of dark horses, and Jack gives me some names to look out for this year. Lastly, we end with a discussion about the recently announced OCRWC ranking system, and how we both feel about it.
Jack Bauer sits down to explain the new Spartan Race Rankings Systems. We will learn all about how he developed it, and have some fun looking up present and historical Spartan race data. We'll throw some fun questions out there like: Got an idea who has the most wins in Spartan Race history? Betcha it's not who you think. PS The guy you are thinking about isn't even 2nd. What if we told you that Brian Gowiski has more Spartan Race podiums than Atkins or Woods in the last 3 years? How about who Matt and Jack say belong on the OCR Mount Rushmore?
