Iowa's record against BCS bowl teams is stellar. Since 2007, Iowa has gone 4-3 against teams that eventually played in the Rose, Sugar, Fiesta, or Orange Bowl or the BCS National Championship game (and that's with an 0-2 mark in 2010). That includes a 1-0 record against tonight's opponents, as Michigan faces Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl (7:30 CST, ESPN). The Wolverines opened as three-point favorites; that has comically been whittled down to a pick 'em.
Anyway, open thread is open. No racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, illegal internet streams of the game, general douchebaggery, or -- this is especially important tonight -- NO POLITICS. I know it's Caucus Night. Go elsewhere for discussion.
