Mack Brown: Young should get Bush's Heisman

Posted by Will Brinson

This is only tangentially related to the NFL, I suppose, but I'm writing about it anyway, because I think the fact that Reggie Bush is so sad about not being able to give back his Heisman Trophy is hysterical.

Mack Brown, current Texas Longhorn coach, agrees with Reggie , although he doesn't seem to find it as amusing as I do.

"I think you have to go back and really give that choice to the Heisman Trust. If they take it away, I think Vince should be awarded the trophy . . . Vince was second in the voting, so even if they re-voted I would like to see Vince get it," the Longhorns football coach told Dan Patrick.

"At this point it's irrelevant because the Heisman Trust has not decided to take it away," he added.

Brown's right -- if the Trust decides to let Reggie keep it (and maybe they just don't want to deal with the whole process of having to try and take it away), there's little chance he'll give it back voluntarily.

Of course, Young supposedly said he doesn't even want the thing , and if that's true, Brown probably knows that -- he's probably just trying to make a point that not only did he win a BCS title legally, but that his best player didn't get the props he deserved.

Reggie Bush apologizes to USC AD for 'mistakes'

Posted by Will Brinson

A 'series of mistakes' is actually the phrase Reggie Bush used when he apologized to new USC athletic director Pat Haden, but you get the point -- Reggie did some bad stuff, it's all come to light, USC got in trouble and everyone involved is being contrite.

That's the simple explanation, anyway. The full quotage is a little different, as Bush also told USA Today (via our friend John Taylor at College Football Talk ) that he'd love to return the Heisman trophy he won ... if he only could.

"He's really contrite," Haden says of Bush. "He knows he made a series of mistakes. It wasn't just one mistake. It was a series of mistakes.

"He told me, 'If I could turn the clock back, I would. If I could give the Heisman Trophy back, I would."

Um, now, I don't own a Heisman Trophy, so I can't be 100 percent sure about its ability to be transported, but if I had to make a guess, I'd lob out the possibility that Bush could either a) mail that puppy back or b) taking it back to its home via his personal automobile.

Or even c) pay someone to drive it for him. Whatever, the point is that if Bush is saying he'd LOVE to return the Heisman but just can't, well, that's wrong. Of course he can.

The only thing he's not allowed to do, according to Haden, is step on USC campus. But that doesn't prevent him from tossing that stiff-arm in the mail and sending it back to the Heisman Trust.
