Tell Me You Didn't See This Coming

It was the adventures of former Cornhusker Lawrence Phillips that made the whole Maurice Clarett affair somewhat predictable. We lived in a simplier time in the 90's, when the exploits of young master Phillips were shocking and damn near exciting to watch unfold. Well, the unfolding has stopped and Phillips is going to prison, possibly for 20 years for driving a car at a group of young men and hitting "two boys, ages 14 and 15, and a 19-year-old man, and narrowly missed four others between 15 and 24 years old."

Deadspin has a great rundown of the highlights and higher-lights of Phillips' career. Amazing he was able to play for THAT many teams and commit THAT many crimes.

All I know is, if they put Clarett and Phillips on competing jail football teams and scrimmaged, tell me you wouldn't pay $29.95 for that?
