Reggie to be stripped of Heisman Award.

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Well he knows he won it. Sucks that they're making him give it back. Everyone around the world saw him win it though. You can't change that. That's what I don't get about stripping awards. I thought the same about ...

I thought the same about Brian Cushing's award. Even if you hate the guy, it doesn't change the fact that he won the award.

Yeah you're right, but it depends how they define "cheat". In Reggie's case, money has nothing to do with playing the game, besides maybe a little comfort.

You would have to shut down college football to put a stop to what Reggie did. The NCAA is a joke.

But I heard after the report initially came out, that it was reported inaccurately by Yahoo Sports. Someone on ESPN said they spoke with the committee that decides this (an independent panel of professionals), and that the report was untrue...that No decision had been made. Almost made me think it was propaganda intentionally leaked by yahoo sports (AKA viking fan)...

Did anyone else see this? It was on ESPN at around 11-ish, CST....

I'm all for the people who broke the rules to actually get punished in some way. For the most part that doesn't happen. The players left at the schools always get punished by not being able to play for titles and in bowl games. Reggie knowingly broke the rules. If they remove his name from the Heisman, oh well.
