...the University of Southern Cal has returned (the school's replica of) Reggie Bush's Heisman Trophy to the Heisman Foundation but still displays O.J. Simpson's?
Yes, in my opinion Bush should be omitted from the record books, and yes, even be asked to hand over his own Heisman for being exceedingly greedy and thinking solely of himself and none of his teammates, future teammates, coaches and fans who are unjustly paying the price for him now.
But, as far as I know, Bush never lost a civil trial connected with the murder of his ex-wife and her alleged boyfriend, did he?
My point is, it is painfully obvious that the only reason the brass at USC made the decision to remove any and all connection with Bush (they're even removing all of his jerseys, murals and any other likenesses of him on campus) is simply because they are currently scrambling to try and bolster their appeal to the NCAA for the penalties recently handed down to the school.
But O.J.'s blood-stained stuff is allowed to stay?
I'm not for one second defending Bush or making light of the stain he has left on college football.
But it certainly puts a different perspective on what it apparently takes to get a former football player vanished from a program, doesn't it?
I'd like to hear what you think.
