Former Nebraksa running back and onomatopoeia enthusiast Thunder Collins has been convicted of first-degree murder in connection with a September 2008 shooting that left one man dead and another seriously wounded.
Collins now faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison.
To say he didn’t take the news well would be an understatement.
As Collins left the courtroom, he yelled at the jury of six men and six women, “Are you happy? Are you happy? You know I didn’t kill anyone!”
The former Cornhusker was a highly touted junior college transfer that never lived up to his billing while playing for the red and white from 2000-2002.
