Today Reggie Bush returned his 2005 Heisman Trophy. Earlier in the  year, the NCAA determined that he and his family had accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars in gifts from two California agents while he was in college. His alma mater, U.S.C. has been given serious sanctions and earlier this summer returned a replica of Bush’s Heisman Trophy.

In a statement, Bush said: “The persistent media speculation regarding allegations dating back to my years at U.S.C. has been both painful and distracting. In no way should the storm around these allegations reflect in any way on the dignity of this award, nor on any other institutions or individuals.”

He added that he wanted to establish an educational program to assist college athletes and their families so they could “avoid some of the mistakes that I made.” He also tweeted a long statement today regarding the issue:

    Hey, great blog you got over here, keep it up! To be honest I don’t think that Bush giving up the Heisman is all that big a deal. The thing is that you can’t take away the fact that he still did all those great things. It wasn’t steroids it was something else, not specified which to be isn’t a big deal in the big picture. Also, you think you could check out my blog cuz I really wanna hear your thoughts on mine.
