Should Reggie Bush be stripped of the Heisman?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Do the crime and you do the time. If Pete Carroll wants to deny the program knows nothing about what happened thats fine, it even makes them look more stupid because they should've known what was going on with Bush....

Re: Should Reggie Bush be stripped of the Heisman?

He was by far the best football player that year, Young was good for 2 games while Reggie was a football gawd that whole season. His cherry on top was his 500 yards against Fresno St. Its a player award and not a team award so let him keep it. Some how I doubt he was the only player on that team that was getting money from an "unnamed" source at the time

What ever rules are in place for these situations are what should be followed. Personally, the Heisman is about individual performance so while I don't care either way, he at least earned the trophy, unless it was somehow provided by alumni.

Ahhhh some logic and principle! I like it. Well done Cruize.

I think this is a little strong. I can imagine a lot worse things a young man could do besides accepting gifts or letting his parents accept gifts that people are willingly trying to give them so he can get a college education.

I don't mean to take the focus off of hot chicks and stripping, but if you have a second you should check out this "article"..ranting, raving nonsense would be a better description for it, but anyway.

To think that it was ever about the "college education" for Reggie is laughable. He wanted to be a super star, he thought he was above it all, and that he didn't have to follow the rules like everybody else. The rules are in place so that there is a level playing field; just like with steroids, or PEDs.

If you think it's just a harmless, stupid rule, imagine what college football would look like if colleges could pay their players outright. Texas would never lose. Ever. They have the second largest endowment in the country behind Harvard, and their athletic program makes the most money. They could offer more money than any other team and could get primo talent (as if they already don't, but still). There would never be an upset like Boise State v. Oklahoma. College football would suck. I'm all for keeping it amateur, and I think they need to crack down on this type of crap more.
