    What ever happened to Ed?

    Curious about the former halftime host at MBB games. He would always walk out onto the court in the same outfit, with that old-school corded microphone and say "HEY EVERBODY!" and the entire crowd would respond "HEY ED!"

    Remember that dude? IIRC he was still around when I was in school in the early 2000's and I know he had been around since I was a kid and Johnny was coaching. We should bring him back to Michigan game as well and let him on the mic (assuming he's still alive).

    that was always a great halftime! If you shot 5 for 5, you could win a car from 'Benson Motors'! Crowd loved that halftime show!

    Ed Gagnier was at one time the gymnastics coach at ISU. He used to be out next door neighbor when I was growing up. I'm sure he's retired.

    Wow, I was really young and vaguely remember that. What did he actually do during halftime? I remember a mini remote controlled blimp flying around too. What was all that?

    Ed must have golfed Veenker quite a bit at one time. He has a number of hole in ones.

    He is still a member and plays nearly everyday when the weather is good.

    According to this Daily article in '97, one person did.

    More than just a helpful halftime host - Iowa State Daily: Home

    Did some researching. Sounds like he and his wife still live in Ames, so I'm sure he still attends events, barring health issues. It would be nice if the University did some follow-up with him. After all, he was a part of the good ol' days.

    R.C Vaughn in 1991! That's impressive.
