They are losing some bucks right now by keeping her. He needs to clean up Bohn's mistake and let her go.
Chump change, maybe.
I cant find good data but it looks like here comp might only be 170K - is that right?
Thanks Bohn. RG cleaning up after his mess once again
You win or pack your bags imho, that's just me though. Some of those losses were just embarrassing.
From what I can find, Lappe is under contract until 2019 at a salary of $170,805. No extensions for her the last two seasons while Boyle has received extensions.
IMO, she has destroyed the program. If she stays, players like Kennedy Leonard and Alexis Robinson will transfer.
This team is going to end up as the team with the most losses in CU WBB history at 23. She has to go.
I'm not sure that Leonard and Robinson would transfer. They both seem to really love Boulder, and that class seems to have really developed a bond. That said, it would be sad to see Leonard's talents wasted toiling for a cellar dweller for four years. I think she is the most exciting player that the team has had in many years.
Need a new coach. Not sure if it is a priority for RG though?
Just a completely unsubstantiated hunch, but I don't think RG replaces Lappe this year. I feel like he is more focused on the football program. Unless there's some kind of behavior problem, I don't think women's basketball is on his radar.
Please be wrong sackman.
Kennedy Leonard has not been recognized for her talents until last week by the Pac 12 and she won't be playing for the last place team.
Leonard is by far the most exciting player the team has had for a long time--probably since Brittany Spears. Her talent was wasted under KMM who only told her to shoot. Cost her when it came to playing professionally. Chucky Jeffery was an exciting player also, but also recruited by KMM.
I would find it hard to keep Lappe. However, who do you want to replace her? I have no clue about the women's game and coaches. Are there certain coaches that you like and think may be interested?
There are a lot of good coaches out there. One I thought of who would win is Keitha Adams of UTEP. Took a quick look and she's one of the lowest paid coaches in C-USA despite being a multiple winner of conference COTY.
I believe you have it
You have it backwards concerning the Freshman. All of them. Plus the transfer.
She will not be fired. Just like Tad was not fired after the CBI and the portland state fiasco and in fact the whole last year. She gets another year. At least.
KMM and her husband were a disaster.
She is coming off a losing season, though. And let's not compare her achievements at CU to Tad's. He's in a completely different league.
Agree, but KMM could recruit. Lappe hasn't until this class shown she can recruit.
Agree with Nik. Tad has not gone downhill every season since he has been at CU. Lappe has.
Kennedy has been nominated for conference freshman of the week multiple times by CU. But unfortunately she has been up against two other VERY good freshmen most of the time... Oregon PG Maite Cazorla, who is second in the conference in assists per game and Cal F Kristin Anigwe who is in the top few in points per game in the conference.
Lappe hasn't gone downhill every season she's been here. She had her first two teams in the WNIT and her third in the NCAA tourney. Her fourth also made the WNIT. That's three trips to the WNIT and one to the NCAA in her six seasons.
However, last season and this there have been no post season.
Her best record came when most of the key players were recruited by the previous staff, in '12-'13. Since all recruits have been hers things have gone south.
Hasn't he made a statement about being competitive or elite in all sports? And I don't get how at this time of the year the football program could be occupying a lot of his attention. He isn't making a coaching change in football, so what else is there to occupy his attention there?
If he isn't at least looking very hard at Lappe than he really doesn't care about the program.
This is my point. Until the current freshmen class, I don't think she has recruited well.
"At CU, we’re trying to create a culture of being competitors and winning championships—in all of our sports.”
Attending to his hair coloring?
I think they will give her one more year.
I'm starting to agree with your call for a change, but for discussion, this team is young overall and its best talent is in the freshman class. They'll probably be better next year regardless of who coaches them. Can Lappe develop those players and improve recruiting in the next class? I would also guess that Ceal still has Lappe's back and would argue to give her another year.
If any key players transfer (as you have predicted) next year could be pretty rough. I think that this season may have looked different if other players hadn't transferred out the last couple of seasons.
The players transferred for reasons we do not know. Roberson is playing her graduate year at a school where she will get to play in post season.
I am hoping that George does not listen to Ceal. I am positive that Ceal has her back, but I hope for the sake of the program that Ceal can't save her.
We do not have a good incoming class for next season, imo. I know Leonard and Robinson enjoy playing together and they seem to like Boulder.
Aside from the freshmen, I see only Swan and Smith as Pac 12 level players.
We don't have a decent post player for next year. Haven't seen much improvement from Correal this year and she can't do that position by herself anyway.
RG is a man of excellence. Lol at anyone thinking he only cares about football
