NCAA Women's Basketball

The leaves are falling here in Iowa City, so NCAA basketball season is here - although the forcast for tomorrow is sunny and a high of 75! Anyway, here is my take on women's basketball using data from the 2005-2006 academic season.

As you can see, both Iowa and Iowa State incurred losses in the women's basketball programs. Iowa's loss is almost $100,000 per student on the team, while Iowa State lost about $62,000 per student. As you can see in the table below the average Division I school at each conference lost a lot of money.
