As we count down the days until the football season, we continue to increase the count of football players arrested. If you thought Aaron Hernandez did a poor job of planning his alleged crime, then meet 20-year-old Korey Harris, formerly a defensive end for the West Virginia Mountaineers, which kicked him off the team for allegedly breaking into a home and robbing two people at gunpoint.
How did the cops catch him? Cell phone records? DNA evidence? Jailhouse snitch? No, the victims told police they remembered Harris’s Mountaineers-issued sweatpants — with his number, 96, printed on them. Dude, why not just glue your license plate to your forehead?
Whether or not Harris has a future in the NFL, this case is a great argument for why we should pay college athletes.
