One of the worst sports stories of all time. Philips was one of the first athletes that showed me that just because a guy is great on the field doesn't mean things are good off of it.

He was always troubled even when he started dominating for Nebraska. I remember how talented he was, I think the Rams drafted him? Never panned out but it was mostly because of his off the field issues. Goes to show you the game is mostly mental.

Hope he has found his peace.

He owned my Gators in the national title game.

R.I.P.

Deeply troubled man.

Would have been a blow out with or without him in the game.
