Last week former Texas Longhorns quarterback, and current Tennessee Titan , Vince Young 's mother asked everybody to leave Reggie Bush alone. Just let the former Heisman winner keep his trophy and get on with the rest of his life. To be more specific, Felicia Young actually said "we're not interested in having no honor and no glory out of somebody else that they are tearing down."
The we she was referring to were her and her son, Vince. Well, Mrs. Young, you may want to have a talk with your son about that. You see, he went on Sportscenter on Monday morning and told Hannah Storm something a bit different than that regarding whether or not he'd accept the trophy .
"I definitely want it, I definitely want it,'' said Young, who guided Texas to the national championship. "But he won it fair and square definitely, and it's much respect to Reggie, man. He had a great career and he's already won a Super Bowl before me. I'm already mad about that.
"But at the same time I am definitely happy for him, man, and he is definitely the Heisman Trophy winner for that year. But if they send it over to me I am not going to say no to it," Young said.
Whether or not Young will ever be presented the opportunity remains to be seen.
The Heisman Trust is expected to meet on Tuesday and odds are that what they're going to do with Bush's Heisman will be a focal point of their discussions. According to a report from Yahoo! last week, not only will Bush be stripped of his Heisman , but the award will be left vacant.
Those reports were refuted at the time, but we'll likely know for sure in the next couple of days.
