Saints RB Reggie Bush did the courageous thing today and talked to the media – come to think of it, he’s been pretty forthright with reporters throughout the late stages of the USC/Heisman Trophy debacle; that’s a move I can respect – and the most interesting thing he said was that the fact he gave up his hardware didn’t mean he was guilty of anything.

It’s just, as he said, the best way to put an end to the controversy.

"It's me showing respect to the Heisman Trophy itself and to the people who came before me and the people coming after," Bush said in comments recorded by the Associated Press. "I just felt like it was the best thing to do, the most respectful thing to do because obviously I do respect the Heisman. I do respect all the things it stands for."

His parents, Bush said, didn’t agree with the notion he should return the trophy.

"That's just the motherly and fatherly nature of parents,” he said. “They understand it at the end of the day. They understand I'm a grown man and I've got to make my own decisions and this is a learning experience for me and anybody else coming after me. ... All I can do is grow stronger from here."

Luckily, he no longer will have the heavy Heisman memento strapped to his back impeding his growth.
