Va Tech was twice as good as Michigan in last nights Sugar Bowl. Twice as many first downs, twice as many total yards, twice as many touchdown chances.
And of course twice as many missed opportunities, field goals and mistakes, none more crucial than an inexplicable fake punt late in the 4th quarter.
Yet after all the comedy of errors in regulation time, just when victory was in reach with a certain touchdown catch and reception in overtime, the replay official unbelievably robbed Virginia Tech of the 2012 Sugar Bowl.
There was no doubt WR Danny Coale maintained control 100% throughout the entire winning catch in the endzone.
Sometimes the best team doesn’t win on the scoreboard. Congrats Michigan Wolverines, you played the system.
The horror for the fans of Virginia Tech University. The horror for the bettors in Las Vegas on the wrong side of a half point. The horror.
