He had Golic towards the end and that was about it -as far as Indiana State ,their program went Kaput a year or 2 later -after producing Bruce Baumgardner -ISU had a hell of a program but both ND and ISU went belly up thanks to title IX.
ISU has a kid named Geib who was a mean man at 132 ? A kid out of Carmel,In.Geib had only one loss his senior year in high school-a good friend of mine -David Thomas was behind 10-12 points and caught him with a pancake in the 3rd and stuck him -that was 75-76. dam i am old .
