Another Stanford alum here, though had the misfortune and stupidity to come during the Brooks Johnson era. I realized I don't know my Cardinal/Indian running history all that well when I saw that Marshall Clark was your coach. I only knew of him as the San Jose State coach. But I remember reading in Kenny Moore's Bowerman book that Payton Jordan was the Stanford coach in the '60s and how disdainful Bowerman was of him (sort of an early version of Brooks Johnson). Was Jordan the track coach and Clark coached the distance runners?
Great reading, by the way. I look forward to the book!
