NCAA Men's Cross Country

The University of Iowa's mens cross country team competes in the Iowa City Invite this weekend. UI's men's team finished last year unranked, so there is a lot of room for improvement this season.

Looking at the financial data, we see that the men's team in 2005-2006 had a per student loss of about $4,600 which is about a $2000 per student savings over the women's cross country team. Also the Iowa men's team on a per student basis is much less expensive than the average of the "super" conferences - ACC, Big 10, Big 12, Pac 10, SEC.
