The goal is to have all teams finish in the upper half of the Big 12. The AD just set this goal, so this years achievements are, to a large degree, the base line. In the Big 12 cross country meet, the ISU men finished 6 out of 12, same as they finished each of the last two years. Mission accomplished? ISU women finished 9 out of 12, same as last year and up from 11th in '04. Room for improvement. This isn't a high profile sport, but, each sport counts in the overall. If I remember correctly, years ago, ISU was was quite good in track and/or cross country.
