Why Reggie Bush Shouldn’t Have to Give the Heisman Back
Reggie Bush didn’t take performance-enhancing drugs.
So why should he be forced to give up his highest accolade of individual achievement?
He still hasn’t apologized. I guess forfeiting the Heisman Trophy is his form of “I’m Sorry”.
If Reggie didn’t give up the trophy on his own, however, the Heisman committee would have stripped him of it and that is far worse.
As for Vince Young, he should be ashamed to accept a “second place” Heisman Trophy if such a thing were to happen. To me, it would be more embarrassing for the Heisman committee to reward a guy that was not the best player in the country that year.
It’s fine to take away the championships and all the things that the team accomplished, but to strip him of individual awards is taking it a bit too far.
