    Davis is a softy who will amount to nothing in the NFL. I sure hope that he is majoring in something good.

    Emanuel Davis is one of the great playmakers around. All those interceptions and pass breakups have been pouring on by Davis. He still has three more years of elgibility and has a legitimate shot at the NFL after College Football.

    davis is a beast..watch out for him in the bowl game and next year. he shut down deandre brown of southern miss. the only time brown got any yards was when marshall was covering him...the future is bright for mr. davis.
