    Thank You Diante and Jake.

    Thanks Diante for sticking with ISU over your 4 years. You showed amazing class and will always be a true Cyclone. Good luck on your future endeavors.

    Thank you Jake for choosing ISU to play your final college season. You went out with an amazing game and had an outstanding season. Your hustle and fight helped a Cyclone team that wasn't expected to compete, have a chance in almost every ball game. You, as well as Maquis Gilstrap are two of the best 1 and done players anyone could ask for.

    Diante deserves his jersey to be retired. He stuck with Iowa State for 4 long years. I wish he could have played under Freddy for another year.

    While he was a great player, only 6 or 7 Cyclones have their jersey retired. Just cause he stuck it out during some rough times does not bring him up to this level. Thanks for a great 4 years DG. Hope you make it in the NBA.

    When he gets to the NBA, then you can retire his jersey when he comes back.

    And thanks to Jamie too.

    We'll miss all 3 next year, but when this program is turned around and I think it will be, it will be in large part to the examples that DG and Jake were.

    Tinsley and Fizer haven't got their jerseys retired and they're some of the top players in Iowa State history.

    I agree, Jamie isn't the most well liked player but he gave it up for the team and the coaches he played under. He isn't your traditional 6'11" player and I think thats why a lot of people don't like him, along with his defensive skills but everyone including DG and Jake has had those lapses and cost us games in other ways.

    That may be one of the most ridiculous things I have ever read.

    Re: Thank You Diante and Jake.

    I am going to miss watching these guys play.

    I really wish we could have Diante play next year where he wouldn't have to be the main focus of the offense and be a true point guard. I think with a whole lineup of capable scorers he could have a special season allowing him to run an offense and distribute the ball instead of having to be the whole offense like this year.

    I also have a big soft spot for Jake. I have been rooting for him since this summer. At fanfest this summer he spent alot of time talking with my 4 year old son. He asked him if he was in pre school, if he likes his little sister, showed him how to play defense, etc. Just went way out of the way to make sure that my son had a great time and Jake really seemed like he enjoyed spending time with the kids instead of just taking a pic and moving on to the next one. Railey also was there talking to my son and they were both great with him, he still talks about it all the time. He even had to have his picture of him, Jake, and Railey framed and hung up by his bed he was so proud of it. Every game we go to he wants to know where Jake is right away so he can wave at him (I then play along that Jake waved back when he wasn't looking). So anyways I will miss Jake for what he has meant to my son as well as I've never seen someone play with more heart.

    I'm guessing this is a joke.

    Re: Thank You Diante and Jake.

    I can only imagine what Diante would have looked like under this staff all 4 years - and with better talent around him.

    He's the fan favorite whipping boy - but all he did was reach some amazing stats and is now mentioned alongside Jeff Hornacek.

    Bingo. Those that don't realize what DG accomplished here need to get a clue. I shudder to think what this team would have been like the last 4 years without him. If you don't think it could have been worse you are wrong. WAY WRONG.
