Let the finger-pointing start now.
Mr. Reggie Bush, on behalf of the freshman, sophomore, junior and senior classes of USC, I would like to personally thank you for destroying at least two years of their football program. The seniors and juniors will not have a chance to make it to the post season because of your greedy little hands. This may even affect enrollment for the next two years at USC as well thanks to you Reggie Bush. So in essence you may have entirely destroyed an institution of higher learning all by yourself.
Now I know people will argue and say “but Reggie Bush wasn’t the only culprit!” This I know, BUT Reggie Bush is the most prominent individual in this illegal activity that took place. He knew damn well what the rules of the NCAA were and are and he still decided to go against them to make himself better off, which benefitted himself and his family. if his family had any kind of dignity or self-worth, they would have talked Reggie Bush out of doing these things. So while you sit on your high horse in your nice house somewhere in Louisiana, a whole football program of young athletes are wondering what they are fighting for each Saturday, but hey lets face it, they aren’t making it to the post season, even if they go undefeated.
But do you REALLY care Reggie Bush, I greatly doubt it, you are making your millions and it seems you could care less. Point in fact, nobody has heard a word from you in regards to the sanctions put forth against USC by the NCAA. BUT! I doubt you would hesitate to speak out if say…. They were to strip you of your Heisman Trophy. Which they SHOULD!!! You performed under false pretense, performed illegal activity and disobeyed NCAA league rules.
I say take away the 2 year suspension of post season and strip Reggie Bush of his Heisman Trophy. The young athletes in USC today should not be punished for an iconic greedy individual who was going against the rules. Punish him instead.
What do you say about that Reggie Bush……. nothing that is what I thought.
