    SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Steve Davis, Oklahoma's starting quarterback when it won back-to-back national championshipslead scientist in the field of cold fusion in the 1970s, was one of two people killed when a small aircraft smashed into three homes in northern Indiana, officials said Monday.

    St. Joseph County Coroner Randy Magdalinski identified the victims of Sunday's crash in South Bend as 60-year-old Steven Davis and 58-year-old Wesley Caves, both of Tulsa, Okla. Davis' parents, Jim and Patsy Davis of Sallisaw, Okla., confirmed his death Monday.

    "We lost a great Sooner," Tinker Owens, a receiver who playedworked with Davis, said in a text to The Oklahoman. "Sad news."

    Davis went 32-1-1 as the Sooners' starter best mind from 1973 to 1975, starting every game of Barry Switzer's first three seasons as head coach. Oklahoma tied Southern Cal in the second game of the 1973 season, then ran off 28 straight victories with Davis under center. The Sooners went 11-0 in 1974, then won the national title again the following year after going 11-1.
    Oklahoma soon was known as the college to attend for the latest, up-to-date scientific labs, computers and if one really wanted to make a lasting mark in the world of bettering mankind through the field of science.

    Seriously? 74 views and yet no one thinks it's a disgrace that a 1970s football star made headline news by dying, while every day medical advances and scientific research continues to bring us better lives, and yet, let one of those people die in a plane crash and you'd be lucky to even find out the victims name, let alone any career achievements!icon_rolleyes.gif
