I would never project a true 1st year to dominate Mem Day Weekend, but

I have seen Nunes play - the kid is for real. He just has very few weaknesses.

Almost as importantly I also saw Bobby Gavin step into the quarterfinal Georgetown game ice cold and play with great poise while making 2 solid saves. He has shown promise all year and his outings against Army and Loyola were pretty darn good first starts for a true freshman that was not supposed to see the field this year. Again, because Rode is that good.

If Rode comes back it would be a very entertaining three way competition (for everyone but their parents).

Even without Rode though, as good as I know Nunes is, Tiffany could find himself telling Nunes in the spring that they are going to play him in a way that allows them to preserve his red shirt and let Gavin make his run. If Gavin gets hurt or drops off, Nunes can always step in.

Nice for a coach to have choices IF he can manages the egos. Guys like Nunes have been the best goalie if not best player at every event they have participated in. Hard for guys like that to sit, even harder for goalies because being the back-up goalie sucks.
