    This is an interesting article on yahoo investigating Reggie Bush at USC...here is the first part:

    An eight-month Yahoo! Sports investigation has revealed that Heisman Trophy-winning running back Reggie Bush and his family appear to have accepted financial benefits worth more than $100,000 from marketing agents while Bush was playing at the University of Southern California.

    The benefits, which could lead to NCAA sanctions for USC and retroactively cost Bush his college eligibility and Heisman, were supplied by two groups attempting to woo Bush as a client. Current Bush marketing agent Mike Ornstein and one of Ornstein's employees were involved. So were Michael Michaels and Lloyd Lake, who attempted to launch an agency called New Era Sports & Entertainment, pursuing Bush as their first client.

    So, if he is found guilty of wrongdoing and has to give up the Heisman, does that mean that Vince gets it?

    but IF found guilty, would he have a choice in the matter? Has anything like this ever happenned before, where the heisman winner had to give up the award? sortof like when an olympic runner has to give up a gold for using steriods...

    doesnt matter if he gives it up or not, he wouldnt be the winner when it's looked at in the record books. he also wouldnt have a vote for the next heisman canidates.

    with that said, i doubt vince would want the heisman given to him.

    wrong

    O.J. Simpson's Heisman Trophy fetched $230,000 Tuesday night at auction to benefit the estates of the former football star's slain ex-wife and her friend. The proceeds would barely "put a scratch" in the $33.5 million judgment owed to the estate of Simpson's ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and the family of Ronald Goldman, said Gary Caris, a lawyer for the Goldmans. The winning Heisman Trophy bidder is an East Coast collector who wanted to remain anonymous, said George Noceti, a vice president at Butterfield & Butterfield. The winning bid was made by telephone.

    why? its kinda classless to take it. he didnt win... it was given to him by default. its not like he's vice-president or anything.
