    Epic Failure in SEC Land

    How could Virginia Tech with their great following be having problems selling their allotment of Sugar Bowl tickets?

    Do you want the mods to amend the thread title, or just close the thread?

    Yes, Hawk, Tech is an ACC school. We all also know of the strong traditional ties between the Sugar Bowl and the SEC. Surely the Sugar Bowl and SEC would see no reason to select and pay BCS money to a Big 12 team after A&M and Mizzou have been held financial hostages.

    Now we have a working link, but I don't get the "SEC Land" part of it.

    More like a Sugar Bowl fail. K-state would have easily sold that allotment.

    Sugar Bowl is in New Orleans, which makes it SEC country. Also, sweet tea is a favorite drink in the south, sugar makes tea sweet, so the failure to sell tickets by an ACC team in New Orleans makes it an epic failure in SEC land.

    You see, bees usually make a lot of noise. No noise ... suggests no bees!
