The love affair that exists between University of Wisconsin basketball player Frank Kaminsky and his school is coming to an end.

It was four great years — as college life should be — and the seven-foot tank wanted to let everyone in Madison knows his feelings before he heads off to the NBA.

He did so in fabulous fashion here.

Check out some of the sweet sentiments:

To the fans…thank you for being the best fans in the country. I dont think any fan base compares to ours. Your loyalty and constant (sometimes overwhelming) support makes our teams feel like there is nothing they cant do. 

And finally to the University of Wisconsin-Madison…thank you for having me. You have no idea how much you have changed my life. I could not think of a better place in the entire world. I was born and raised in Illinois, but I am proud to say that Wisconsin has turned me into the man I am today. 

Leaving Wisconsin for the last time as a student and the first time as an alumni was very difficult, but I am very excited about my future and I know I will carry Wisconsin with me wherever I go.

As in The Tank’s college career, this is well played.
