Wiscougarfan, Hamson and Plouffe are both the winners in this picture. The only
ones that aren't: those that squabble and posture about them.
There aren't any "losers" when you get drafted and someone tells
you they will pay you to play a sport for your job. Congrats to both these
The ute was projected as Top 10 pick and was #19. The BYU player was supposed to
be mid-third round and ended up #23. BYU came out alright in this one.
ceebeeHamson lead her team to the Sweet Sixteen, before losing to
one of the best women's team in history.Plouffe lead her team
to a losing record, and no post season.Hamson is a two-sport
All-American who, even after declaring that she was returning to BYU to finish
her final season of volleyball, was still drafted 23rd, only 4 spots lower than
Plouffe, whose college athletic career is finished.Clearly, Hamson
and BYU are the overwhelming winners.
Congrats to both players!@ChrisB, leave these poor women alone and
celebrate their victories.
"If she would have passed on volleyball and gone straight to the WNBA she
would have gone even higher."Conjecture. Regardless, congrats
and best wishes to them both.
Chris b, whem people have agenda people don't see anything. I am Utah fan
but BYU definitely won this one.
In fact, BYU wins with this draft. Jen Hamson will sit out all of next year to
concentrate on volleyball. So LA took a flier on her and are willing to let her
sit a whole year to then have her play. If she would have passed on volleyball
and gone straight to the WNBA she would have gone even higher. Congrats to Jen
and her remarkable accomplishments in both sports...ALL AMERICAN!
How low has the ute athletics become?Talking smack about
Actually Chris B, you don't have ANY idea who wins until they actually play
and show who's a more successful pro. The real winner is Weber State who
has claim to the best player in the NBA from a Utah college--Damian Lillard--who
just signed a 100 million dollar shoe contract.Go Wildcats!
Once again Utah winsBig sister, little sister
