    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Coming off a 12th-place finish at the NCAA Championship and its third top-25 effort in the last five years, the Indiana University men's cross country team were ranked 12th in the 2004 Mondo/NCAA Division I Preseason Men's Cross Country Poll.

    Head Coach Robert Chapman's charges, which produced a third-place finish at last season's Big Ten Championships, tallied 236 points to earn a spot among the nation's preseason top 15. Joining the Hoosiers in the rankings are fellow Big Ten members No. 1 Wisconsin, No. 6 Michigan, No. 16 Minnesota, No. 22 Ohio State and No. 28 Iowa while Illinois also received votes.

    The Badgers earned nine first-place votes for a total of 414 points to pick up the season's first number-one ranking. Stanford garnered four first-place votes of its own for second with 403 points. Rounding out the top-five were Iona (384), Arkansas (378) and Colorado (363).

    Indiana will look to improve on its ranking next weekend as it travels to South Bend, Ind., on Oct. 1 for the Notre Dame Invite at 4 p.m.
