Back in 2005, USC’s dominance was undisputed on the field. In present day, the disappointment is the only thing that’s unquestionable. In a move that he felt was the best one, Reggie Bush has voluntarily forfeited his Heisman Trophy.
“I have made the difficult decision to forfeit my title as Heisman winner of 2005,” Bush said in the statement. “The persistent media speculation regarding allegations dating back to my years at USC has been both painful and distracting. In no way should the storm around these allegations reflect in any way on the dignity of this award, nor on any other institutions or individuals.”[Via]
Whether you’re a fan, rival or neutral-minded, this is an unfortunate circumstance, seeing that the award was earned regardless of the NCAA’s wishy-washy rulebook. Let us all pray that the Super Bowl win is valid. Because if not, it may be fire that takes the city under this time.
