    I went to the G during the glory years of D3 dominance. Though they haven't exactly been world beaters since joining D1, I still have hopes they'll be back at the top soon.

    WHO'S WITH ME???

    Dream on son, uncg will never wake up not if furman is still in the southern conference. They will always be second to furman (if at all they get their acts together)

    I have no allegiance to UNC-G but I think they have a good coach and some of their alum (more than a certain other SoCon school) have done well at the next level.

    Alejandro Moreno has had a very nice MLS career so far and appears to be improving all the time.

    And Chris Goos had a great rookie year in the A-League, becoming a starter and playing very well for the champion Charleston Battery. He certainly played well enough that I bet he gets an invite to an MLS camp next spring.

    Are there any current UNC-G players who have a chance to make it at the pro level?

    I disagree with your assessment of Michael Parker.

    I play on a men's amateur team with a couple UNCG guys who played there in the late 80s/early 90s.

    I haven't seen them in action, but based on their stats, Randi Patterson looks like the guy to watch.

    He's a freshman from Hackensack who has started every game, scored 5 in 7 and, by far, leads the team in shots.

    The rest look like solid players, but more strong squad guys than MLS futures.

    I'm trying desperately to recall the name of the keeper on the great mid-80's teams. Rich was his first name, but I can't remember his last.

    He was not only a superlative keeper, but a truly great guy.

    Anyone? Anyone?

    His name is Richie Schlentz. He still lives in Greensboro, married with two girls. You are correct about his skill and attitude. I played with him in '85.

    Thanks for that! I remember he had a wonderful girlfriend; sweet, smart, just a terrific girl. Did he marry her?

    I no doubt saw you play many times, if you played on the '85 team with Richie. Great to hear from you.

    That's great to hear. Thanks for the update. I think it's highly unlikely he'd remember me after all these years, but, if you should see him, tell him David Walker sends his highest regards.

    Those were some great teams you played on. Such creativity and spirit. So good at playing down the wing and getting in the cross. Great memories. I remember when you won the title in, I think, '85, at home, you guys taking a victory lap singing "here we go".

    I met Steve when he was working here for AEG, since Doug Hicks is a good friend of mine from college. We convinced him to join our men's team here, called -- get this -- Gildar, so I got to now him very well. He then got Dave to join. Even though I started Gildar, I've since left the team, but Dave is still on it (Steve played with my new team in an indoor league until he met). Our shared appreciation (his more than mine) of Bruce Springsteen and beer, also prove to solidify the friendship.

    I see him pretty much every time he's in town now and he's on the list for an E-mail I send out every day about soccer stuff.
