Campbell and Dillon will stay home

UConn announced on Friday that freshman defensive end Marcus Campbell of Bloomfield and sophomore defensive tackle Brandon Dillon of Rochester, N.Y. will not travel with the football team to the Meineke Car Care Bowl due to personal reasons.

It's not due to an arrest, they weren't kicked off a team and they haven't been suspended. It's simply a personal matter, and they aren't being allowed to travel to Charlotte, according to the UConn sports information department.

"It's simply a personal problem"

A personal problem that doesn't allow a player to travel to the biggest game of the year should NOT be labled simple.

Don't get me wrong, this doesn't help the Huskies chances, but at least its not anything against the law or NCAA rules. And, if it is personal, its also not a violation of team rules. So I guess there is some sort of bright side to the issue, even though it is really dim.

Ran across this link on the Meineke website - http://thumpbowl.com. Cool site for an old grade school game.
