Over the last few weeks, Reggie Bush has been under fire about the Heisman Trophy award and whether he'll be able to keep it or not. I find it sad that they would even be THINKING of taking this trophy back, something they've NEVER done in it's entire history. Whether Reggie Bush took money or not, his performance was what won him the Heisman a few years ago. He was the most explosive, dominating, aggressive running back to watch that ENTIRE SEASON. He deserves it.
Now here's where the bad part comes in. The NCAA punished USC with a few fines, taking away a few scholarships and bowl games, AND VACATING ALL THE WINS from that Reggie Bush season. This, is where we have a problem. As I mentioned up above, the Heisman Trophy Awards Trust has NEVER taken back an award from a player before, now I would also like to mention, NO PLAYER HAS EVER WON a Heisman Trophy without playing ANY GAMES. That is how things are looking now. If Reggie keeps the Award, he will become the first person ever to hold the Trophy without playing a game. No receptions, no yards, no touchdowns. That season is WIPED AWAY.
However, I still do not like the fact that they are trying to take it away, but I feel it needs to be GIVEN BACK. I think they are stalling because they want Reggie to feel this way as well. They've given him enough time. He should take the classy way out, beat them to the punch, and offer to give the award back.
