I think the issue that seems to concern some here is whether Iowa has a legitimate claim to Back to Back regular season championships, not whether one is better than the other. At least that's what started the back and forth.
On that point, Iowa is in posession of a red and gold trophy that reads something to the effect, "2008/09 MACHA Regular Season Champions". The will soon be in possession of one that reads, "2009/10.....". This is unequivocal recognition by MACHA of the importance of the regular season final standings and clear validation of Iowa's claim.
You can now continue to state your opinions about which is more important, but Iowa's claim to Back to Back championships stands.
