Yea, I know that the 2011 season is not yet finished for 8 other teams, but I am looking forward to the 2012 Tarheel season! I expect it to be a good one. The incoming talent is substantial, and if the key talent from 2011 is ready to go, we should have an excellent season. There are, of course, some realistic problems which will have to be solved. One is that it seems to take about half (or more) of the season to get the line-up pretty well stabilized and to start working well together. Another is to get a good season going without serious injuries. Another is to get the ACC (and other signs of parity) lined up psychologically so as to continue to play well should a loss occur. Here's a cut at a line up with potential alternates who could end up starting (not necessarily subs.) Roughly in the order that I see strength, not by L,C, or R position.) I am postulating as starters: 3 seniors, 3 juniors, 2 sophomores, and 3 frosh. (I know Parker has been a forward, but given Ohai, Rich, and Horan, if she starts it may have to be at right mid. Wood could realistically play forward or in the back, given her history.) Keeper: Haeberlin, (Daly, Sieloff, Harris) Backs: Brigman, Morris, Ball, (Linquist, Murray, Ramirez) Midfield: Brooks, Dunn, Nigro, Parker (Lubrano, Anania, Elby, McFarlane, Premji, Bruce) Strikers: Horan, Ohai, Rich, (Burchenal, Cowie, Wood, Grey) This list presupposes for the moment that Ohai, Lubrano, Wood, and Burchenal will be back, that no further announced 2012 recruits will de-commit, and that no additional new recruits will show up who have a realistic chance of playing in 2012 (although there may be a transfer in or a foreign player who could change things.) Also, as in 2011, there may be some 2012 recruits that come on strong and surprise! Other thinking about 2012?
