Michigan v. Virginia Tech - Sugar Bowl Open Thread

What a crazy day of football yesterday! Perhaps the insanity will continue today as Michigan takes on Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl:

While there’s controversy surrounding the fact that two SEC schools will play for the BCS championship in New Orleans, there’s also some about the game taking place at the Superdome six days earlier.

The Sugar Bowl will pit No. 13 Michigan and No. 17 Virginia Tech in a matchup of marquee programs that received invitations to Tuesday’s contest ahead of higher-ranked teams.

The decision by the Sugar Bowl to bypass teams like No. 8 Boise State and No. 11 Kansas State in favor of Michigan (10-2) and Virginia Tech (11-2) has sparked anger from those that were snubbed. These high-profile programs are expected to draw interest to a game that will be overshadowed by the Jan. 9 championship between LSU and Alabama.

Leave your thoughts on the Sugar Bowl in the comments. GO BEARS!
