All sports have a following around the UI campus, but none as big as football. The wrestling program is known as one of the best in the nation. In fact, UI attendance records have been set at wrestling meets in the Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The men’s basketball team also plays in the Carver-Hawkeye Arena, but student support is dwindling after several disappointing seasons. Intramurals are quite extensive at UI. There are dozens of sports offered, so there’s generally something available for everyone. Most IM sports have two leagues: a competitive league and a more recreational one. Anyone of any skill level can get involved in intramurals, and many use them to fill the void left by high school athletics.
Overall, athletic programs are the center of non-academic life at UI. Sports are always chatted about amongst friends, and it is rare that you’ll go to a house party or a bar without hearing somebody talk about an Iowa team. Hawkeye teams are rarely at the bottom of the standings, and when they are, it’s never for long. With no professional sports teams within any reasonable distance, UI not only provides sports entertainment for the student body, but for the entire state, as well.
