Re: Say good bye to your Heisman Mr. Bush

Who cares, he's a rich mofo now...and if he is as good in the Pro as everyone thinks this will all be forgotten in a few years. I suppose the only people who should care are those involved in SC athletics department.

Re: Say good bye to your Heisman Mr. Bush

I wouldn't be suprised if it was happening to every college superstar out there right now. Sheesh. It's not like getting a little money is gonna make them play better, look at all the busts in the pro's that are still getting paid.

Re: Say good bye to your Heisman Mr. Bush

yeah seriously it happens at plenty of universities across the country, probably to most top players to be honest

USC cares, but bush shouldn't, he's already a multi-millionaire now with more goodwill in his new hometown and more endorsements than he knows what to do with.

Re: Say good bye to your Heisman Mr. Bush

why is this a shocker? just like thatguy said, this probably goes on at all the major colleges. and who cares anyway? why is usc allowed to profit off of bush while he doesnt make a dime? he gained no unfair advantage by accepting money, so more power to him

Re: Say good bye to your Heisman Mr. Bush

Im pretty sure that was sarcasm, dmek.

They need to make it so NCAA atheletes can get paid, Either have the universities who make tons of cash off them give them a little bit, or let them accept marketing deals. Most kids that age can go out and get a job to afford things they want -- but not these football players. My step-sister was playing D1 soccer till she got rear ended in an automobile and her career was ended. Luckily her schoolarship opened up a bit more room for my dad to give her spending money, but for kids with parents that can't necessarily pay extra, it can be tough!

Re: Say good bye to your Heisman Mr. Bush

Did you guys read the story about the Clemson player raising his little brother? He can't accept donations for the kid's education (even from people not associated with the school in any way) or little favors like rides to school from the coaches' wives because the NCAA says that's a violation.

I agree with you Daseal, they should be able to get at least some money for living expenses and that sort of thing.

They do get paid alot about 50,000 per year is about what it cost to send a child to an out of state college. In state runs around 18,000 in Va.. Look at the kids who work hard in school and receive nothing in the form of a scholarship for their hard work.

Re: Say good bye to your Heisman Mr. Bush

It'll hurt USC a LOT more than Reggie now. I doubt he'll care, especially after the selfishness he showed us by threatening to only give money to charity if he had the NFL jersey number rule changed JUST for him.

Re: Say good bye to your Heisman Mr. Bush

yep, the sanctions that will be held against USC will hurt them a lot more than Reggie Bush losing his trophy...

i read about the Clemson kid raising his little brother. i believe they are trying to grant him a temporary deal that he'll be able to get the help he needs for his little brother.

That's ludicrous - how much money do these other kids bring to the school? Football teams in the Big East get almost $40 million a year in revenue from the TV deal for airing their games. With even 75 players on a squad, that's about $4 million in scholarships at $50k/year. That's a lot of money that these kids are bringing to the school in exchange for the pittance they receive (and we haven't even touched on ticket sales or merchandising).
