      I think Reggie is doing the right thing.

    I think he returned the Heisman because he knew (or they informed him) the "Heisman Trust committee" would be taking it from him anyway. Personally, I don't think he should have had to give it back. It's not like he was taking performance enhancing drugs to get an edge on the competition. He was the best player in college football that year. Yeah, he got caught taking improper benefits, but I'd guess that most star players do the same thing-- they just don't get caught.

      I agree about Bush and most college players, but they were going to use the compliance obligation to strip him. I think when he met with them last week they gave him the choice of giving it back or having it taken away.

      He wasn't the best player on his team let alone College football.

        Reggie Bush's 2005 Stats in 13 games:

        Rushing:
        1,740 yards, 8.7 yards per carry, 16 TDs

        Receiving:
        37 receptions, 478 yards, 2 TDs

        Punt returns:
        179 yards, 1 TD

        Kickoff returns
        493 yards

        Best Game: 513 all-purpose yards vs. Fresno St. (That's pretty good)

        All together, that's 2,890 all-purpose yards, 222 yards per game, and 20 touchdowns.

        Reggie Bush was the best player in college football in 2005, although you are entitled to any opinion you want.

          Do you remember who came in 2nd in the Heisman voting that year?

          Some guy named Vince Young who was quarterback for the team that beat USC for the National Championship?

          19 Rush attempts 200 yards.

          40 pass attempts 30 completions for 267 yards.

          3 touchdowns.

          He accounted for 467 yards of offense by himself against a team that had 2 Heisman winners on it including Bush. 

          I will retract my statement about Bush not being the best player on his team.

          But, he was not the best player in College football that year.

          *Edit* And he wasn't paid to perform, thats the most important stat of all.

    I suspected that too, they talked to him, so that he can give it back or get it from him although I think that if that is the rule, then it should be applied to all.

    I don't know as much about NFL as I do about the Real Game - Rugby (where they don't wear crash helmets and padded undies smile ). But from what I've seen so far this new season Mitch State have a pretty good coach and it looks like the best player in the team is Rush.. who seems to have covered more ground than the others hmm

    Why do they call rugby tackles Horse Collars? hmm

    Wow PDH that's a nice couple of noughts on your stick! hmm

      They would if they played American style football.

      It is a far more violent sport than Rugby.

      Let one of your Rugby players carry the ball and see what a 350 pound lineman with 4.5 speed does to him.

      He'll want pads.

    Unfortunately Bush went down in tonight's Monday night game to a broken leg and will be out for at least 6 weeks. He has not shown the same stardom he had in college, but he is still a dynamic player who can make a big play out of nothing on any snap. Here's to wishing him a speedy recovery.

    At least it wasn't a major knee injury.

    I hope his knee will heal immediately.
