In Bush's case, the memo says the school intends to return his Heisman Trophy: The Trojan family honors and respects the USC sporting careers of those persons whose actions did not compromise their athletic program or the opportunities of future USC student-athletes. Accordingly, I have instructed the senior vice president for administration to remove athletic jerseys and murals displayed in recognition of O.J. Mayo and Reggie Bush by mid-August -- before the incoming class of students moves on campus -- from Heritage Hall, the Galen Center and the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The university also will return Mr. Bush's 2005 Heisman Trophy to the Heisman Trophy Trust in August. http://content.usatoday.com/communities/gameon/post/2010/07/usc-reggie-bush-heisman-trophy/1 && This is confusing and needs some clarification, but this clearly says that USC is cutting all ties with Bush, but whether or not Bush himself is stripped of the award, dosen't sound like it but I'm unsure ? && http://blog.newsok.com/berrytramel/2010/07/20/usc-penalty-banning-bush-no-small-punishment/ USC is giving back Bushs Heisman. The Downtown Athletic Club of New York hands out two trophies. The winner gets one. The winners school gets one. Bush, who won the 2005 Heisman but has been found guilty by the NCAA of taking benefits and money from agents, can with his Heisman whatever he wants. But the Trojans are getting rid of their Bush Heisman. The Bush Heisman no longer will sit in USCs Heritage Hall with those won by outgoing athletic director Mike Garrett, O.J. Simpson (gulp), Charles White, Marcus Allen, Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart. && OK that clears it up. The Heisman group hands out 2 trophies, one to the player and one to his school and USC is returning the one they received from the Heisman group. So this means that Bush remains the Heisman winner for 2005, I guess ?
