    Wait. What? I can't think that the WNBA pays better than the SEC does.

    "Blair said he intends to add two post players in the late signing period with Bone leaving."
    Must be nice to just be able to grab a couple late signings like that.

    When I shoot, it is a jumper. When Bone shoots, do they call it a Bone*?

    Anyone who leaves college early to play in the WNBA is an idiot. The players don't even make enough money to have a career. You'd just as well leave college early to work at McDonald's.

    She is going to have her degree, so what the heck are you running your mouth about?

    Bone, who started her career at South Carolina and sat out the Aggies' 2011 national title season after transferring, said she's on schedule to graduate in May with a degree in university studies.

    Maybe you should actually read the article before commenting.

    Rookie minimum = 35k. Average salary = 72k. This plus the fact most WNBA players supplement that by playing overseas for salaries higher than they get in the WNBA means she might be able to make close to six-figures right out of the gate.

    Ah, well then. Don't I feel like the ****in' *** hole.

    And that's for about 4.5 months of work. 5.5 months if your team makes the finals.

    And a transition into coaching, athletic management, or other related fields afterwards.

    Failing that, a nice little nest egg to get a "real job" like the rest of us.
