"Iowa selected for the Orange Bowl, not the Rose Bowl [in 2002]" ... "Orange Bowl takes the Big Ten co-champion before the Rose can. Hawkeyes leave with a loss to USC and without flowers." I found this interesting, because I don't remember this being an injustice, so much as a point of frustration. Many of the other "injustices" Iowa passed over included being left out entirely of the BCS or undefeated teams not playing for the title. *I think the link requires a subscription to view it all, so I included all that mentioned Iowa in the quotes above.
