Should Reggie Bush be stripped of the Heisman?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Every college athelete that's worth a grain of salt receives some sort of compensation at some point and time during their years in college. Whatever money he may or may not have received didn't make him explosive on the football ...

Re: Should Reggie Bush be stripped of the Heisman?

Every college athelete that's worth a grain of salt receives some sort of compensation at some point and time during their years in college. Whatever money he may or may not have received didn't make him explosive on the football field. He deserves the Heisman for that year and for the record I didn't like him before he became a Saint and I damn sure don't like USC but he deserved the award.

Let him keep it. I'm in favor of a college sports stipend anyway. They should get paid...they are getting paid anyway. Money is funneled through boosters and alumni and every other creative channel that can be found. They should just clear the air, put it on paper, and give the guys (and gals) some pocket change.

I'm glad there was an "I don't care" option.

Re: Should Reggie Bush be stripped of the Heisman?

Since he didn't do anything performance enhancing I say let him keep it. Its not like getting a suit and a house for his family to live in will make him a better athlete.

Re: Should Reggie Bush be stripped of the Heisman?

Reggie knowingly broke the rules. Whether or not you agree with the rules is irrelevant. Now, innocent young people have to suffer the consequences of his selfish actions. Reggie should have to give up his trophy and pay USC back for his scholarship. I like Reggie. I'm glad he's a Saint. I'm really tired of their not being any consequences for doing wrong in this country. And we all wonder why things are so screwed up.

Re: Should Reggie Bush be stripped of the Heisman?

Whether or not Reggie gets to keep it or not is irrelevant at this point. Theres nothing the NCAA can really do to Reggie and they can only hurt the school involved way afterwards. The peole involved will not be punished, the ones that paid Reggie are not going to get in any trouble. They are getting off scott free. Maybe the Ncaa should look at filing suit against them?

Let him keep the damn thing! He did the job on the field give him the award. It wasn't a performing enhancing drug, so the NCAA can shove it! Ask yourself this question, right or wrong, if you were broke, in college, and your family was poor, would you take some money to take care of them. This is football guys and girls, one hit and it's over, no big pay day. I'd damn sure take the money, to take care of my family.
