I remember Ron Mishler at Peoria Spalding HS

In fact, I had the unpleasant duty of covering him in the freshman football game between Spalding and Bergan. It was played in a driving rain storm on a Saturday morning (since it was a Spalding home game, it took place, I think, at Glen Oak Park). Bergan won 6-0, but Mishler was tough! Bergan lost in the varsity game when Mishler and I were both seniors, 1977. That game was the night before I drove to South Bend to see the ND-Georgia Tech game.

Hilarious bit about Fourcade's encounter with Dan Devine (eating cereal?) I'd heard Devine was a bit of an odd duck.

Thanks, Olson, great history as always.


Great Review-‘78 was my ND Frosh FB Class- worked as FB Mgr

with each of those gentlemen. They were All Great Guys!
As Juniors - they were ranked (#1) and eventually lost 17-10 to Herschel Walker & the Georgia Dawgs in the January 1, 1981 Sugar Bowl.


Thanks olson. Great stuff. Did Tripp ever play?

He was from a school that we played regularly in HS and I barely remember him.


I started at ND in 1979 and I don't recall the name. *
