I guess that means all the VY brown nosers will start saying he deserves it in 5,4,3...
I read last night VY said he'd take it. I could have sworn he said a few weeks ago he would refuse it. He must have gotten a death threat from Mack Brown and changed his mind.
Let the NCAA look into VY's time at Texas first and make sure no money changed hands.
Because, extra money in your pocket makes you that much better on the field.
He did .
Good words from Bush, IMO.
It's probably a mute point since I read somewhere that the Heisman Trust did not intend on awarding a second trophy.
That's what I read. Probably should just have a blank and an asteric (*did I actually spell that right!?!?). Saying player received the most votes but was later determined ineligible. Something like that anyway.
Why does the statement have to be all grand and sappy? What's wrong with everybody? Can't we handle a "Hell yeah I took ___________ because it was handed to me, oh and I like money. I realize this is a mistake and my apology is to give back a trophy I worked my ass off for." I think that would mean more to me than this statement that was prepared for him to sign at the bottom.
I spell it *. If not I'm screwed.
As I think they should.
Reggie Bush singlehanded ruined the USC football program (atleast for a few years), and now he's basically ruined the 2005 Heisman year. What a selfish little loser.
But in last night NBCs Nightly News this story was mentioned by Brian Williams who, and I kid you not, actually referred to Bush as "the great New Orleons running back" ! Say what ! This guy is a fair to midland NFL reserve running back. Even to this day, after everything Bush is still getting the hype, the exaggerated description and overratings ?
Don't worry! Be happy!
yeah, VY should get it after receiving 9% of the vote compared to Reggie's 88%. riiiiight...
Cool. Vince can put the default Heisman in the trunk of the SUV the UT Boosters gave him and call the "tutors" who took exams for him at the athletics academic lab on his cell phone. Unfortunately all programs cheat Mack's argument that Vince should get it because He and Vince didn't get caught is BULL$h:t.
Must spread rep
Meh, the Heisman's become a joke anyway. Who cares what they do with it
Is it not supposed to be awarded to the most outstanding player in College football? I mean, any award that refuses to consider Olinemen and Dlinemen is a joke. Suh deserved it this past year
You have to hand it to Reggie Bush. You really do. As elusive as he might be on a football field, he is at least equally talented at eluding responsibility away from one. Is it really possible to be the first person to give back a Heisman Trophy just ahead of it being pried from your hands by the Heisman Trust after having obliterated N.C.A.A. rules and paint yourself as a noble, selfless teammate and role model? Of course it is! If youre Reggie Bush.
Chris Dufresne of The Los Angeles Times marveled at how little contrition Bush has shown. John DeShazier of The New Orleans Times-Picayune writes that you cannot minimize what Bush did at Southern California, even if you think the N.C.A.A. rules are a sham. He will not be able to wiggle out of the fact that he will always be known as the player who had to give up his Heisman, writes Stewart Mandel on SI.com, but Ray Ratto writes on CBSSports.com that nothing has really changed and we will all go back to pretending college sports are an honorable enterprise. Thayer Evans writes on Foxsports.com that it would have been more satisfying to see the Heisman Trust strip it from him instead of allowing Bush to put his magnanimous spin on giving it up.
