When Reggie Bush made the announcement he planned to give back the Heisman Trophy to the Heisman Trust, it seemed like Bush's only option to save face in the eyes of the public. Bush issued a statement thanking the efforts of his teammates that led to the award, and while he admitted no wrongdoing while at USC - decided to follow the lead of the school and give back the trophy.

But this week on The Dan Patrick Show it was reported that Reggie Bush's copy of the famous statue had not returned to the Heisman Trust. In fact, there were conflicting reports as to where the actual trophy was currently located. Seeing as how there are lots of things to report on in the Summertime, James Varney of The Times-Picayune decided to crack this case.

So where in the world is Bush's trophy? In San Diego. (cue Carmen San Diego theme song) An executive with the San Diego Hall of Champions confirmed that the museum is currently in possession of the trophy. Arrangements are being made to return to the trophy to the Bush family, though the statue's path from there remains unclear. No one can force Bush to give the Heisman back, but after his public statement of well-being it would be awfully rude to stiff-arm the Trust at this point.

Reggie Bush's Heisman Trophy found in San Diego

I'm just laughing because the title of this article makes it sound like Bush's trophy is a living being.  Found in San Diego?  Was it half-nude or found in the woods?

I agree with the others.  He won it already.....So you officially take it back and the award is vacated?  Yeah, right.....that'll show 'em.

Even without the trophy,everyone will that follows College or Pro football will still know who won the Heisman Award for that year. I just don't understand that when something like this happens the NCAA think that by removing banners,taking away W's and any type of championships that people will forget what that team did for that year.

There is something about Heisman trophy winning USC running backs associated with the Kardashian family that is not good. I am not sure what that is.


Well played.  Laughing
