He la's ball, King Louis on the way s?orei 15 touchdowns In his last tn th onillntinc Nannlonn nr. Is1" games. He SCOred SIX tOUCh- downs against Notre Dame, more than the Irish usually give up a season. He averaged 154 yards in his last six games. He returned kickoffs 468 yards and averaged 39 yards per punt re-' turn. And he was only a sophomore. This year, they figured they might have to ban him. Tell him to report directly to the hall of fame or, at least, the Green Bay Packers. THEN IT was 1973, and all over ,the country football coaches thought something had gone wrong with their projector. "Wait a minute," .they said, looking at USC films, "How come they're not playing Davis?" "They are," an assistant would say. "That's him No. 28." ''That can't be him," the coach would grumble. "He's lying down." Elba. The party was over. The glass slipper was too tight. All Anthony had left was an old dance card. You would find him sitting by the fire in old clothes. All the trophies and pictures on the wall showed someone else wearing No. 28. The roses were faded and crushed in an old book. The music had stopped, the air had gone out of the balloons.

I went out to USC to check the mysterious disappearance o f Anthony Davis. The only clue I got was that some people pointed to an auto accident Davis had last spring and an operation on his legs. Some say the guy who walked "LISTEN " he said. "I haven't changed, the team has. We're in a rebuilding phase. Take those guys last year. They have been together three years. That was one of the very great college teams ever put together. That team didn't open up holes, they opened up tunnels. Freeways, man, in non-rush hour."
