Dirty Daum. Daum Daddy. Big Daum’s Dong. The Daumster. The Dauminator. Dunking Daum. Drizzy Daum. Double D Daum.
Mike Daum is not the most athletic looking dude. Honestly, it looks like it hurts his body to run up and down the court. But Daum Daddy has secured the top spot on my man crush list. AND HE’S STILL GOT ONE MORE YEAR LEFT. He could leave South Dakota State but he won’t. Should he? Daum’s a loyal dude and I don’t think he should but then again leaving to play somewhere else next year against stiffer competition could prepare himself even more for the next level. But he’s a Jackrabbit for life and even though I’m a Bison hair to the tips of my toes, Daum Daddy is killing the mid-major college basketball game and I love everything about it. The dude is laying down 22.6, 8.7, 1.6 and just about a block per game in 31 minutes per contest. He’s scored 30-plus six times this year and twice in SDSU’s last four games. Drizzy Daum was just named to the Oscar Robertson Trophy Midseason Watch List and there are some talented ass kids on the list.

Daum is a player and even though he wears the blue and yellow, I’m part of the Daum Diamonds.
And I mean look at that smile, my goodness.
