We, the college basketball fans of America, believe that Gus Johnson deserves to be given play-by-play duties for CBS' coverage of the 2011 NCAA Men's Basketball National Championship Game. For years, fans have been enthralled by his high-energy calls punctuated with signature phrases like Rise and fire!, Cold-blooded! and Ha-ha!

In fact, Johnson has become perhaps the only play-by-play announcer in the country that fans make special effort to tune in for. By placing him on the call of the final game, CBS could not only ensure that fans will be entertained but that they will make an extra effort to watch the game in the likely event of an exciting, Gus-fueled finish.

Sincerely, The Undersigned
