For those of you who never got to see Rick Leach play, here is a glimpse into what he did as a true freshman in the 1976 Orange Bowl. No wonder some Sooner went head-hunting to try and take him out of the game.

I read about this plane crash near South Bend earlier, but they announced the names of the dead and injured today.

Sadly, one of the dead passengers was Steve Davis, star wishbone quarterback for the Oklahoma Sooners 1975 team that played Michigan in the 1976 Orange Bowl.  Davis also performed sideline reporting for ABC college football, including one with Bo Schembechler (don't remember the game) as the teams went in before half-time.

You can catch the full footage of the 1976 Orange Bowl on youtube, a game famous Michigan's all-white uniforms. Oklahoma won the game 14-6.

Condolences to Mr. Davis' family and OU.  I'm sure a little No. 5 may be on the Sooners' helmets this fall.
