He had Iowa on his list.

In terms of tradition, Minnesota has to be in the next group. 6 national championships(5 in the 30s and 40s and one in 1960), one of the oldest programs, etc.

I don't know, because some teams "tradition" isn't this century. It's based on what they did 50-75 even 100 years ago.

With regards to custom, New york has to be in the next team. 6 nationwide championships(5 in the 30s and 40s and one in 1960), one of the earliest applications, etc.

I think Mount Union and Wisconsin-Whitewater, even though they are D3, should be mentioned
