) 38 SPOUTS TV WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 9. 1985 LINCOLN, NE, JOHH Davis' agent wants special NFL draft By The Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) - Mike Trope sees little difference between Roosevelt Snipes and Kenneth Davis, except that the National Football League allowed Snipes to go through a supplemental draft while, for now, it is closing the door on Davis. Davis, Texas Christian University's star running back, was one of seven players suspended on Sept. 20, one game into the 1985 season, when it was determined they had taken illegal cash payments from boosters. Davis said in a Wednesday Dallas Morning News story that his payments amounted to $18,000. Now, he wants to play in the NFL. "I'll be in shape next year, but I want to play now," Davis said Tuesday after he and Trope met for 75 minutes with NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle to present their case for a supplemental draft. .The league has a rule prohibiting a player from playing in both college and professional games in the same season. Trope reiterated Tuesday that he' plans to take the NFL to court to force it to conduct a supplemental draft for : Davis if Rozelle refuses to grant one. ; Snipes was a Florida State running back who, in a supplemental draft this summer, was picked in the eighth round by the San Francisco 49ers. He remains' 'unsigned. ! "Roosevelt Snipes was allowed, to go 'professional through a supplemental 'draft," Trope said. "He had only com-jplcted three years of college. He had not gotten to his fourth year. He was 21 years old. He was kicked out of school. ! "Kenneth Davis, on the other hand, is 23 years old. He is a fifth-year senior." ' According to Florida State, Snipes actually sat out a year of school after being graduated from high school, then attended junior college for a year, then transferred to Florida State for his sophomore and junior years before flunking out His senior year in college would have been his fifth beyond high school ! "In my opinion," Trope said, "it is totally arbitrary to say that Roosevelt Snipes could be allowed a supplemental draft because he got kicked off the team on time and that Kenneth Davis made the big mistake of getting kicked off five days too late," after the Horned Frogs had played a game this year. "We are going to use the Roosevelt Snipes situation to show that a precede ent has been set," Trope said. Trope said he had asked Rozelle whether, from a moral standpoint, he felt Davis should be able to play in the NFL immediately, "and he said yes, but that the real question was whether or not they could get around this particular rule." " ' -V--.' ''''T Joe Browne, the league's director of communications, denied that Rozelle had said that. "There would be no point having the meeting if his mind was already made up, which is what this implies," Browne said. " The provision barring a collegian from playing in the NFL in the same year he has played in college is known around the league as the Red Grange Rule, named after the Illinois halfback who in 1925 signed with the Chicago Bears and played for them on Thanksgiving Day, right after his final college game. "I can't think of any other cases since then," Browne said, "but it's very possible that other guys have Called over the years and said, 'Hey, I just dropped out of school after four games,' and we said, 'No, we have rule that says so-and-so,' and in a less litigious society they said, 'All right, I'll wait until the draft.' " In the Dallas Morning News story, "Davis said football coach Jim Wacker was wrong in suspending him. , The newspaper, in a copyrighted story published in Wednesday's editions, reported Davis' payments began with $1,000 when he signed a national letter of intent in 1981 and ended in August 1985 with a $400 payment. "I didn't know it was wrong when they were paying me the money " Davis told the newspaper. "I thought it went along with the package. All the colleges that recruited me offered me money. Mr. (Dick) Lowe paid me the money. "He was on the board of trustees of TCU, so I thought it was OK to take the money. In alL I got about $18,000, give or take" a little. Where did it go? Good question. I have $30 in my pocket now," Davis said. In another report, television station WFAA reported that Davis estimated he had been paid $23,000 during his years at the Fort Worth school. From page 35 Iba Devaney said he called Iba. "He told me that he did not supervise practice. He Ed he only came in to conduct the rkout, which is OK. 'From what I have heard, I believe it tapes are very inconclusive. I'd go land of slow in accusing him (Iba) on the basis of the sounds of a basketball bouncing and some voices, one of which may or may not have been his. You would be blasting a man's reputation on the basis of something that may not be legally admissable. Moe says he was not coaching. That's the only thing I have to go on at this time," Devaney said. Only NCAA basketball teams are limited to the Oct 15 practice starting date. NAIA teams Doane, Kearney State, Wayne State, Midland, Concordia, Cha-dron and others have no practice starting limits and have already begun practicing. Three Big Eight games set By The Associated Press ' The Big Eight conference football season officially gets under way Saturday With six Big Eight teams playing conference games.
