    I like it. She was a terrific teacher/coach when she was here before and brings a lot of experience with her. She obviously thinks highly of Lappe and vice versa since Watson coached Lappe here as a player. Coach Watson should still have most of her connections with the Colorado high school/club coaches for recruiting since she was at CU thru 2005 and also coached the Boulder Rockies (a local club team) that season. She also gives the coaching staff a minority presence, which can't hurt.

    Thanks, BeBe.

    I like having an experienced coach on the bench. We needed another vet on the bench. Excellent hire, IMO.
