The first official media availability for the Allstate Sugar Bowl between Michigan and Virginia Tech occurred Sunday evening with Hokies coach Frank Beamer, Wolverines coach Brady Hoke and Sugar Bowl CEO Paul Hoolahan.
What else you might have missed? That's right here in convenient bullet form:
Hoke has never met Beamer, which isn't surprising since they have never really been in the same coaching circles. Hoke has been in the Midwest or West Coast for much of his coaching career. Beamer is a Virginia Tech stalwart.
