DG salvaged his legacy by having a great senior season. His first three years were really really bad; however, most of his problems during this time were largely a result of the coaching system he was in, so it's hard to blame him entirely for how awful the first three years were.
Does he deserve to have his jersey retired? Ummmm...no, and it's not even close. He never even made a post-season appearance, let alone won a post-season game.
Having said that, I'm glad he had a good year and helped to lay the foundation for Fred's coaching tenure here.
Thanks to all the seniors. Especially to Diante for surviving the four years of termoil. I have seen a lot of players improve from year to year, but I have never seen a cyclone improve as much as Diante from junior to senior year. The first 3 years were pretty similar with small improvements, but this last year a little bit of a surprise. I definitely didn't see all conference it his future a year ago.
Two favorite teams, the Cyclones, and whoever is playing the Hawkeyes!
A big thank you to all 3 of our seniors. Diante stood out all year long, Jake had a big year, and JVB played a huge role in most of our big wins. Had Hamilton or Dendy stayed we would probably be in the NCAA picture, but this team gave us a lot of close entertaining games that set the stage for a bright future.
