    I say no.

    I think it's ridiculous how much money schools make from sports while the players are essentially slave labor.

    So fucking what if his family got paid. He was still the best player and earned the award on the field.

    No, Bush should not be stripped of his Heisman.

    Yes, he should be.

    The rules might be idiotic, but they are still the rules. I am very much in support of the NCAA changing the rules.

    However, I must say that I don't know much about this case, and could possibly be persuaded differently with more information.

    I don't see why he should be stripped of a trophy he clearly earned.

    If anyone should be penalized, it's the school.

    Just the fact that his name is Bush should be reason enough.:eusa_angel:

    If I was Bush I'd just sell the Heisman:

    From OP

    I bet he couldn't give a shit at this point one way or the other.

    Colleges make billions off these athletes and the athletes receive nothing. I'm suprised the system has lasted this long.

    I hope reggie doesn't care.
    As a life long suffering now joyously happy saints fan and LSU fan.
    Reggie went from the arch enemy USC to the promised land.
    He is a football god now and needs to be above the ghestapo NCAA reprisals bothering him.
    The saints wouldn't have won the big one without him being such a beast and moving the chains in the first half before Brees and our D bitch slapped Manning and the Colts.
