    I don't have a favorite NBA team... But the one he plays for will be my favorite.

    An absolute all-timer. He plays with heart and amazing talent and represents our school with nothing but class. I don't know what more you can ask from a student athlete. Monday night is going to be rough. Thanks for everything Georges.

    Georges is one of us and always will be. I was playing some ball yesterday thinking about how hard it is to make those little hook shots consistently and he is automatic with any defender on him. I'll always remember his technique and touch. We might have had other players who can ball with him but no one else fully embraced being a cyclone like he did. Beating and trash talking the Hawkeyes, hating Kansas and beating them a fair amount too, and being a guy who always had time for fans.

    Dreading Monday, but glad to witness it. Thank you Georges. You will go down as one of the greatest Cyclone ever. You have been a wonderful representative of Iowa State. The way you embraced college life on and off the court has been a delight to watch. Blessings!

    It will be a sad, sad day; what a great Cyclone. I really hope we have a deep dance run for his sake; he needs to experience a good NCAA tourney.

    Dare I say "Greatest Cyclone Ever"?

    I'm almost 50 years old, and I'm having difficulty remembering any better one. Not only is he one of the best basketball players in the country, we've had several of those, but he also adds the entire package off the court as well. One of the nicest, gracious, compassionate, giving, funny, outgoing players we've ever had in any sport IMO.

    It is going to be such a rough night, and probably more so for him than anyone. He'll always have a place in Hilton Coliseum with his jersey hanging in there, and obviously he'll always be welcome back.

    There are a thousand things to say about Georges and I'll probably say them a lot of over the next few weeks. As Eric Heft said, there's probably no one who has combined talent with personality to play at Iowa State like he has.

    But I think maybe the best thing about Georges is I don't think he's ever forgotten that he's playing a game. Do I think he hates Iowa as much as he acts like sometime? No. But he's having fun. And I love that. I honestly have no idea how opposing fans feel about him---except I'm sure that they all think he's been here for about 10 years---but I'd like to think that while he's been a pain in their side for 4 years they'll remember him as a good natured trash talker who does it with a twinkle in his eye.

    I know he's had some bad luck in the NCAA tournament. But, I hope that whatever happens to end this year, that he (and all of us) remember just how many great, great memories he and his team are responsible for.

    I just put this in the game thread, but I think it really belongs here:

    Anyone else catch that when they had Georges & Jameel center court before the game and talked about their accomplishments, they gave them balls (probably with the numbers on them)...and when the guys headed back through the tunnel to the locker room, Georges tossed his up to 3 or 4 kids sitting right above the entrance?

    We're on the opposite end of the court, but I could see them showing it to everyone around them...so sweet. :)
