    The Next Big Step - #4 CC

    Progress toward Goal 4. This isn't going to happen all at once.
    Have all of our teams fi nish in the
    upper half (fi rst division) of the Big 12
    Conference standings within fi ve years.
    Men's Cross Country finished 4th of 12 in the Big 12 meet. Their average over the first ten years of the conference had been 6.

    Women's Cross Country finished 7th of 12. Their average had been 10. Progress. Though by cummulative time the women should be fourth - I don't understand the points.

    Take the placing of each team's top 5 finishers. Add those placings together. That's your team point total.

    Men - 19, 26, 27, 33, 34 = 139
    Women - 3, 5, 44, 56, 67 = 175

    Thank you. I'm old. I'm sure it used to be cummulative time, but when it changed I don't know.

    way to go runners! ISU used to have very strong track and CC in the 80s/early 90s, would be nice to see them return to the upper echelon of the conference. I absolutely used to love running on the cross country course south of campus during my time at ISU... my knees and ankles enjoyed it to... no pounding on pavement!


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Looks like the coaching moves by JP were justified.

    Ihmels had been CC coach since 2001, but, Pollard gets credit for promoting him. I hadn't realized ISU won an NCAA Championship that recently.

    Corey Ihmels, a six-time All-America long-distance runner at Iowa State and a member
    of the school’s 1994 NCAA Championship cross country team is off and running in his
    initial season as his alma mater’s Director of Men’s and Women’s Track and Cross
    Country. Tabbed by ISU athletics director Jamie Pollard in May, Ihmels oversees the
    overall operation of both programs and hired a top notch coaching staff.

    As happy as I am about this, I don't hikn we can say that it's anyway related to the coaching move. Corey has had cross country completely within his control for some time. What he would have gained that he didn't have was perhaps control over some scholarships that might have been track (non distance) before. I don't know how these teams allocate those scholarships. I don't know if Hilary was a result of that sort of thing or not.
