    Thunder Collins gets life plus 110 years for his role in killing one man and attempting to kill another in a drug deal gone wrong.

    Man, Osborne recruited some really cruddy human beings.

    He got arrested out this way a little while back for burglary and assault at the apartment of an Oregon State player - at first I was worried the Beavers were considering adding him to the team - but he was just visiting an old girlfriend in Corvallis.

    Thunder's lucky he's not getting any lightning while sitting in a chair.

    He recruited this guy who got to Nebraska a couple years after Osborne left?

    Pretty sure Osbourne was gone by then, right? Collins played in the early 00s.

    I thought Rozier's only crimes were against fashion.

    As many convictions as Phillips has racked up, he might as well be.

    As on old friend of mine says;

    "Lawrence Phillips has been behind more bars than Jack Daniels."
