What's so hot about the Top 20 anyway, Coach? You don't have to live anywhere near that neighborhood to get invited to the party of the year. Give your point guard time to complete that quantum mechanics project he's so hot on. Send your big hosses to Grenada for the winter. Get yourself on the guest list for the Bing-Bob-Glen-Andy-Crosby-Hope-Campbell-Williams pro-am. Just be back here with your kids in March. There'll be room for almost everybody now that the NCAA has increased its field by 11 teams to 64.

Charge, you CAMPBELL Fighting Camels!
