Reggie Bush Returns Heisman

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: http://twitter.com/reggie_bush

Too Little Too Late

Its happen to all of us, the boy that comes back to apologize for messing up. But most of the time, by the time he realizes what he did, we think it’s just too little too late! Reggie Bush decided last week, it was finally time to start mending his broken relationship with USC.

The new USC Athletic Director Pat Haden, told US Today that the former Heisman Trophy winner apologized to him in a phone call last week. “He’s really contrite. He knows he made a series of mistakes. It wasn’t just one mistake. It was a series of mistakes,” Haden said. Bush said, “If I could turn the clock back, I would. If I could give the Heisman Trophy back, I would.”

Even with this apology, one of the greatest players to come out of the USC football program has been banned from visiting the school. The school has completely disassociated itself from the Saints running back. They took down all images of Bush and sent his trophy a packin’.  Bush is now focusing on New Orleans Training camp and said this about repairing his relationship with his alma mater: “I hope someday at some point it can be repaired, we’ll see what happens. That’s all I can do.”

Well it seems that USC isn’t the only one trying to forget about Reggie Bush. Sexy reality TV star and Reggie’s Ex, Kim Kardashian, has moved on to yet another football player.  Clearly, you can see that she has taken the title of our blog, Literally!  but can you blame her??

Enter: Miles Austin (note to self: keep drool off of keyboard)

Austin is a 6’3, 214 lb, 25-year-old wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys. Not too shabby KK. I know Reggie won a Super Bowl, but this new beau is still a winner in our book. In the ’08 season Austin was able  to emerge as a deep threat as he averaged 21.4 yards-per-catch on 13 receptions for 278 yards and three touchdowns.

It’s reported that the couple met the old fashion way, by exchanging numbers when running into each other at a LA restaurant.  After going on a few dates, the two have decided to make it official. And C’mon, Can you blame her?? Lets go ahead and look at him again:

It must be noted that the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star was linked with Portuguese soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo, 25. Her last boyfriend was Reggie Bush, 25, running back for the New Orleans Saints, the couple reportedly split at the end of July 2009. And now she is linked up with yet another 25-year-old footballer…… TOUCHDOWN!

PS. Latest Update: Not so much of a touchdown as Reggie and Kim ran into each other over the weekend at a friend’s wedding. VIA Life & Style Mag: “The two came face-to-face at the July 17 LA wedding of her actress pal Khadijah Hagg and his New Orleans Saints teammate Bobby McCray, reports Life & Style”—“Reggie’s been spotted out partying with various new women, both she and her ex arrived solo and spent the reception in their respective corners doing shots with their friends. “But as the wedding was breaking up, Reggie finally walked over to Kim, and they talked for 10 minutes,” says the insider…I guess it doesn’t matter who you are, that is always an awkward one.
