Default Reggie Bush is forfeiting heisman trophy

Running back Reggie Bush has decided to hand over the Heisman.

Under pressure since his award winning 2005 campaign at Southern California was vacated, Bush said in a statement on Tuesday that he will forfeit the Heisman Trophy.

"One of the greatest honors of my life was winning the Heisman Trophy in 2005," the statement released by the New Orleans Saints reads. "For me, it was a dream come true. But I know that the Heisman is not mine alone. Far from it. I know that my victory was made possible by the discipline and hard work of my teammates, the steady guidance of my coaches, the inspiration of the fans, and the unconditional love of my family and friends. And I know that any young man fortunate enough to win the Heisman enters into a family of sorts. Each individual carries the legacy of the award and each one is entrusted with its good name.

"It is for these reasons that I have made the difficult decision to forfeit my title as Heisman winner of 2005."

The NCAA passed down sanctions on USC relating to improper benefits received by Bush and basketball player O.J. Mayo. The Heisman Trust has been reviewing whether Bush should have his award taken away but had not made a decision.

Good on him. Even if it wasn't rightfully his, it's still hard to admit you did something wrong and giving back the actual trophy.

You coach a team that cheats you get an NFL job

You win the Heisman on a team that cheats .. You play in the NFL with a good team and have tons of money and give back the trophy 5 years later.

You are USC... you get burnt while the biggest contributors of the cause leave for greener pastures.

Great system that NCAA has
