How in the world can anyone listen to Petros and Money ? I don't think I can handle 5 minutes of Petros' annoying voice.
I can also attest that Paul Davis is one of the craziest guys I knew at ISU. Came to ISU on a wrestling scholarship and lost it pretty quickly from what I remember. I am not sure if the streaking incident got him the boot or if it was fighting and drinking that did it. A friend's mom commented that she was pretty impressed with what god gave him considering how cold it was that day.
KSU looked SO much bigger than our squad back then....I thought they were monsters.
Bill Snyder from last night on the radio interview (true story) .....
"I've known the Rhoads family for a long, long time. I knew Coach Rhoads' father (Cecil) back in the day when he was a high school football coach in the Des Moines area and I was a coach at Iowa. I held Paul back when he was a baby".
Who'd a thunk?
Paul Kenneth Davis was the guy who always took the dare no one else would take. That KSU game was Dad's day my sophomore year. Dad's day the prior year was the historic victory over NE, so I thought things were headed in the right direction after the KSU win. Boy was I wrong. In any event, after drinking all morning at Tip Top, we went to the game with our Dads. Paul's was not there. We were all seated on about the 30 yard line, south east side. In those days it was common to have botas full of whiskey, schapps, you name it. People just walked around the stands (ample room) hammered. We dared Paul to streak. A couple of our dad's called him chicken. Next thing we knew, my Dad and another Dad were asked to hold his sweatshirt and shoes. We looked down to see Paul on the sidelines next to some players in his boxers. He turned and waved to us. Security didn't have a clue. Then he dropped the boxers and slowly ran across the field holding his hands up.
When he got cuffed at the other side - I think it was that doosh Oxley - he stood there for awhile. One of our buddies ran over with his clothes to see if the cops would let Paul put them on for the trip to jail. They wouldn't, but since our buddy was down there on the sidelines, he grabbed a mesh bag full of KSU official game footballs. He came back to our seats tossing them around. I had one for about 10 years, don't know what happened to it.
We kept calling the drunk tank all day trying to get Paul out. Finally passed the breath test around 11. Grabbed him and went straight to the bars, where he was understandably a hero. That dude did more in 2 years at ISU than most people could in 20.
I've been looking for that video on youtube for years.
The obvious questions, then, are where is Paul now, does he have a ticket to the game, and how much booze does he need to do it again?
