    I love DG and think he might even advance. But top 66 in the country itself doesn't sound that awesome. Still I think he has a definite chance to make the top 20 and that would sound a lot better!

    I think he'll get past the first cut at least. He means a lot to this team.

    If he keeps up his shooting from the other night he won't be cut from the list anytime soon.

    Congrats to DG.
    I don't think it's fair to harp on people who were critical of how DG played prior to this season. He was inefficiently used by a coach who won't be named, and thus appeared to be subpar.

    Cousy Award goes slightly overboard - College Basketball Nation Blog - ESPN

    I thought it was a nice honor until I read the above. Man, college bball sure has some messed up award processes.....first the wooden award and now this. Hopefully DG makes the cut to 20, i'm a fan.

    Congrats are in order. He has really shown himself to be a player this season. How much of that was due to Fred and how much is due to Brackins leaving, who knows. This is his team now, and he's responded.

    Can we bring up all the threads from the past three years constantly bashing DG? I've always been behind him, and knew if he continued to progress year to year like he has, that he had a lot of potential, and now hes the key to our team....

    To the haters from the past, told ya so! Congrats to DG

    Re: Iowa State's Diante Garrett Nominated for the Bob Cousy Award

    I'm all for any ISU players getting national recognition, so congrats to DG. With that said, anyone who's seen video of the last 2 minutes of both of our losses would seriously reconsider this nomination. These nominations are purely based on preseason expectations or stats on paper(mainly against weak non con games), not the "eye" test so I think the first cut is very broad and includes guys because they're seniors with lots of games under their belt. I'd wager the people doing nominations haven't watched half of these guys play. This helped DG up to this point, but from here on out it will be more about how sucessful the teams of these guys than their individual play, so DG could play lights out and it may not matter. I will say DG is looking more comfortable in this offense and with balancing his scoring/PG duties, a big game or 2 in January could allow him to make the cut but we'll need to knock off one of the big boys in the conference play to keep his name relevant in the Cousy conversation. So he'll need some help from his supporting cast.

    "Paper-Tiger"

    That seems to be the word of month and that is how to describe DG. Ripping up severly weak opponents. When the game is on the line single handedly lost both of our loses. Tried to lose the Iowa game for us too. The guy is simply not a Big 12 caliber PG plain and simple.
