Your Nov. 28 college basketball cover was your best effort of the year. Indiana State's Larry Bird does indeed look explosive, but the two ISU cheerleaders appear even more exciting.
Indiana State is guaranteed at least one winning team this basketball season.
Forget Larry Bird. Who are those beautiful cheerleaders?

THE TOP 20
I want to thank SI twice. Once for ranking the Kentucky Wildcats No. 1 in college basketball (Scouting Reports, Nov. 28) and a second time for not putting them on your cover.
The Marquette Warriors should have been ranked first.
How can you have teams like Syracuse, Holy Cross and Cincinnati ahead of UCLA and North Carolina? And where is Nevada-Las Vegas?
Sun Valley, Calif.
North Carolina 10th? No way. Dean Smith's Tar Heels ( Phil Ford, Mike O'Koren and all) aren't about to settle for that.
You are truly going to regret your decision not to put Michigan in the Top 20. With or without Phil Hubbard, the Wolverines will be heard from this year.
Ann Arbor, Mich.
THE TOP 10
In Nancy Williamson's preview of the women's teams (The Women Cash In, Nov. 28) the emphasis was on large colleges taking over the game on the national level. But don't bury the small colleges yet.
