Virginia Tech and Michigan both travel well to bowl games.  The same can be said for WVU.  Not always the best matchups for nonfans of the teams but they sell tickets, fill up hotel rooms and someone is watching.  Michigan fans would watch the End Hunger bowl in SF if Michigan was in it.

True, but any bowl game wants to get teams that will buy tickets beyond their allotments to ensure a sellout and to get as many fans as possible from the teams in question to fill local hotels, bars, restaurants, and cabs. Not speaking of any teams in particular, but a team that sells its allotment plus thousands of extra seats is more valuable than one that will only sell the allotment alone.

All Mich State had to do was win & theyd be in instead of Michigan. Michigan is still.a marquee name/program, the Sugar Bowl folks are trying to draw eyes to their game, they went w/the resurgent Michigan "big name", to draw in folks, nothing wrong with it imo. Nkce to see my Wolverines back to prominence

If this was in reverse, and Michigan State or Ohio State got the call over Michigan, you would be throwing a fit.

Nah, it worked out the way it shouldve. Ohio States playing in the shit/toilet bowl, where they belong. State blew their chance, they dont deserve to go. Amazing how "great" OSU looks now that they cant cheat ?

State BEAT Michigan, on the field, where it's supposed to count. They get penalized for making the conference title game and losing by 3 to a team that would shitstomp the Wolverines? Bunch of crap.

But, State lost their conference title game, which cost them the Rose
Bowl. Michigan has 2 losses, State has 3, so they (Michigan)go. Had State beaten Wisconsin again, no arguements they deserve to go. Wisconsin can just as easily want to play Michigan, as Mich can them. I think the Badgers got tired of getting owned by the Wolverines, so thats why they havent played them lately? Wisconsin can always put them on their 2012 schedule? Doubt that happens though.

Dewar, State also lost to ND/Neb, both teams Michigan beat, rather handily too. State ended up w 3 losses, and blew a trip to the Rose Bowl, had they beat Wisconsin, but they didnt. Plus, Michigan most likely beats Wisconsin, if they play. So, State needs to blame themselves, for blowing it, not the process.

The Sugar Bowl chose also rans Virginia Tech and Michigan over more deservin teams such as Boise and Kansas State.

No Kidding,this is a marquee BCS bowl,one of the Big 4 and they chose two half assed teams like that? 

No wonder there have been calls from time to time for Congress to get involved in college football postseason in the past. This has to be one of the most boneheaded and head scratching decisions in a long long time,and has me wondering if the same type of corruption that brought down the prestige of the Fiesta Bowl isn't going on here too.

Now way there weren't under the table payoffs here,at least Ohio State's scandal was players trying to get something for nothing,not
high level corruption.


So, you want a 3 loss team, who lost their conference champ. Game, to go over a 2 loss team, who beat BOTH Neb & ND(who State has 2 of their 3 losses against) instead? State blew their shot @ the Rose Bowl with their loss, hows that Michigans fault?

Even as a Michigan season ticket holder I agree with you. MSU was penalized for winning their division and playing in the Conf. title game. Michigan was rewarded for not being good enough to win their division.

Despite Michigan having a better record, and beating BOTH teams, that beat State.

You keep missing the point. The only reason Michigan had a better record is because Michigan State had to play an extra game. And the reason they played an extra game? They kicked Michigan's ass.
