He was a piece of crap all the way back when he played at Nebraska.  He beat the hell out of a girlfriend at the time and was kicked off the team only to be reinstated.

And was the star in the national championship game.

Then they booted him again, once they had the title in hand.

Tom Osborne was a scumbag. Yeah, they consider him a saint in Nebraska but the guy brought in thugs and criminals to that campus. Osborne protected rapists so they could play on Saturdays. He bent over backwards to accommodate Philips, who beat the crap out of his pregnant girlfriend.

Sad that Phillips ended that way, but he dug his own hole.

He beat another girlfriend later, then hit a bunch of pedestrians with his car.  He also killed a cellmate in prison.

Yeah, they kept him isolated after he murdered his cellmate. The wiki article on the guy said he was getting 25 years tacked onto his sentence for crimes he'd committed against a previous girlfriend.

He had issues 20 plus years ago and should have been put in jail then.  The guy he murdered was no saint either but still.

I know enough that he was a sorry excuse of a human being.

He murdered a cellmate, had a history of domestic violence, and ran down pedestrians.  What aspect of his life negates this?

I only served on one misdemeanor theft jury.  It was a three person panel for shoplifting.
