Report: Reggie Bush Expected to Be Stripped of Heisman Trophy by End of Month; He’d Be the First Player in the 75-Year History of the Heisman to Have It Taken Away

Sep 7, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Reggie Bush, who has been a star with the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints, will likely have his Heisman Trophy–which he won while playing for the USC Trojans–taken away from him, Yahoo! Sports reports in an exclusive story.

"Two sources close to the Heisman trust said the body’s investigation is coming to a close, and will ultimately concur with the NCAA’s determination that Bush was ineligible during his Heisman-winning season in 2005. Because of that independent conclusion, sources said the trust will relieve Bush of the award and leave the honor for that season vacant," the article notes.

According to the story, the Heisman trust has been looking into this matter since "the NCAA ruled in June that the USC star had committed multiple violations by accepting cash, gifts and other impermissible benefits while playing for the Trojans."

The Trojans have historically been one of the most popular college football teams in the nation, and a good draw on TV. Because of the Bush violations, the Trojans are on four years of probation, from June 10, 2010, through June 9, 2014, and are banned from postseason football play for the 2010 and 2011 seasons.

  1. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  2. Really good info I was browsing Google for something and discovered this weblog of yours. By the way, is there any way to subscribe to new posts?
