I don't feel like this one is hard, even though Miami and Washington were down in the last decade, there is plenty of history there, especially with Miami's 5 national championships from 1983-2001.

Washington should get the nod over Iowa for many reasons, including the fact that Washington is 2-0 against Iowa in Rose Bowls.

Another trivia note.  It was almost Iowa vs. Miami for the 2002 national championship.  Iowa was 8-0 in the Big Ten but did not play OSU that season, so OSU was also 8-0 in the Big Ten and 12-0 overall,  so OSU got the nod over Iowa and Georgia for the NCG.  Who knows what might have happened if the Big Ten had a CCG in 2002.   Anyway...

If Miami plays a game and nobody shows up, did it really happen?

Miami is tough because they sit in the most fertile recruiting spot in the country.  Do they really have a national presence?  Do they even seek one out.  They have almost no fan base, and very little success now in 15 years despite whatever they did in the 80s, early 90s, then again under Butch.  Their history basically is totally tied to about 15 years of being great, which seems to hold very little capital today.


Washington has no business having the history they have.  They are a very underrated helmet IMO.
