BREAKING NEWS: USC To Return Bush's Heisman Trophy


Future-Incoming, and Currently Interim, USC President Max Nikias said the school will return Reggie Bush's trophy to the Heisman Trophy Trust next month.

The HQ thinks, along with most conventional wisdom, that the trophy may be vacated and that this is a move to extend what goodwill USC has left in the college football community.

The school also said that it will take down anything, and the HQ means anything, with Bush or O.J. Mayo on it, the other major figure in the four-year NCAA investigation that ended about a month ago.

"The Trojan Family honors and respects the USC sporting careers of those persons whose actions did not compromise their athletic program or the opportunities of future USC student-athletes,"
Nikias said.

This is all setting up the idea of a house-cleaning in the USC Athletic Department. OSG Sports reported earlier today that Pat Haden is taking over for a "retiring" Mike Garrett in early August as AD, and that JK McKay will be given the newly-created role of a university "liaison" between the Athletic Department and the individual teams themselves.

More when we know more...

Here's some highlights of Bush, that might have to be vacated or turned into "un-highlights..." by the time the NCAA is done...
