    Such a nice story Doc we may need a few more threads about it.

    Too lazy this morning to find the other thread. But, aren't they talking about un-retiring Bush's jersey too?

    I don't know if they are going to un-retire the number. But they are going to remove all memorabilia of his from display.

    I didn't read the article. Will the trophy be passed on to Vince?

    I honestly think that Bush should be totally stripped of the award by the Heisman group, but not VY or anybody else should replace Bush.
    The 2005 Heisman award should be permanently vacated, which would be more than a symbolic gesture as it would serve as a caveat to schools in the future to make a real effort to prohibit the kind of improprieties that occured at USC with Bush instead of just turning a blind-eye to such activities.
    We'll see if the Heisman group is interested in making their own statement about cleaning up collegiate sports ?

    I agree. Because all that might happen is that the NEW guy ends up havig some sort of scandal, which means you have to pass it onto the 3rd place winner.

    Just vacate the thing. Call it good. Over and done with. Chalk it up to a bad year.

    And hey, maybe this is a good time for them to even consider just doing away with the awards completely? What's the purpose of the award? It's an arbitrary thing, based on opinions.

    The trophy that matters is your conference trophy and your bowl trophy. Team trophies based on team achievements. As dirty as Bush was, his whole team wasn't dirty...and it took the whole team to help the dirty guy (Bush) do what he did. I think that's why I favor the team-oriented trophies.

    Ron Dayne. Didn't HE win the Heisman Trophy? And let's see how that worked out. It didn't. Maybe the individual honors are past their prime.
