    FSU has a lot to thank North Carolina for this year - not only laying an egg in the final, but also taking out Stanford's co-MVP earlier in the season.

    UNC had some field issues this season, but they should be on their new home field on their campus this fall. I didn't know that FSU was having any field concerns. NC State played there three days after Hurricane Michael hit, and it was in really good shape, including the press box and offices.

    They have a great field and location... so good that the football program has taken notice.

    Maybe in our daughter's daughter's lifetimes, that hierarchy will change.

    Couldn't figure where to drop this question but the most experienced posters keep up on this one. Does anyone have any insight on college rosters with goalkeepers? When we first started the process it seemed like three was mostly where each roster found its limit, but in our situation recently we have noticed coaches who have been open to the DD even though there would already be 3-4 keepers on the roster. I know it comes down to "the best player will play", but I wonder, do coaches try to limit the numbers? How does that situation work?

    You will find some of this discussed in the Goalkeeper section of the forum....under the tread : Goalkeepers and College Recruiting....
    I had wrote this in there a while ago....copied and pasted but added & edited it a bit:

    Yes, you will see anywhere from 2-5 goalkeepers on rosters (5 would be a lot though)...but it can/will change year to year (graduating out/5th years/redshirts/walk-ons/injuries/etc) Two years ago my DD's university had 3 keepers, last year was 2 keepers, this year is 4 keepers (one of those is a walk on) next year probably back to 3 keepers...so it changes year to year...and yes, pay attention to that. Also know it is very common-- although not talked about very much/kept quiet-- for freshman goalkeepers to redshirt...especially in a power 5 program and especially if there are older keepers/deep in this position already (who actually also probably redshirted their freshman year as well but not always mentioned in the bio...good question to ask a coach before committing.)

    As you know goalkeepers are such a unique position-- and seem get better & better with GAME experience especially quick decision making (the college game being much faster paced)-- so depending on school/coach & the culture there-- not always sure about the "best player will play" quote...I will say, many times-- if all other things being pretty equal (speed/distribution/shot stopping/etc) the older/more experienced goalkeeper - will play. So yes, sometimes there is a "hierarchy" so to speak. And usually only one goalkeeper -the whole season -out of the 3 will see the majority of minutes (pending an injury)...it can be mentally tough as a frosh or sophomore, but must be patient & just keep grinding. Another main reason-- you absolutely must LOVE the school you are at-- with or without the soccer --first and foremost--because when you are not seeing playing time right away--the awesome academics/professors & a great coach & teammates/friends get you thru it.

    Everything that soccer661 said, plus, keep in mind that if you are doing the math by looking at the roster as a HS freshman/sophmore, things can change a lot by the time the GK reports as a freshman, so no matter what you've been sold make sure your player LOVES the staff and school. Also, I've seen situations where three keepers were rostered and ALL THREE were sidelined with injury. Coaching staff had to train a field player!

    Hell, I think they should have awarded it to her last year, but I think there was very real reluctance to hand it to a freshman. (No disrespect for AS who was a monster in the same Stanford machine of 2017!)

    They could probably hand it to her the next two years blindly and she could still win or be in the mix.:D

    another question!! what happened during the ASU rebuild when Winkworth came in? Did some committed players uncommit? I know he brought in a massive group of girls, how did that all happen? Thoughts?
