It’s official: The University of Southern California has declared Reggie Bush to be a non-person.
Incoming president C.L. Max Nikias announced that the school will return its replica of the 2005 Heisman Trophy awarded to the great all-purpose running back, whose elusive forays into rival end zones produced both victories and untold amounts of money for the Trojans. The school will also remove commemorative murals of both Bush and tainted one-and-done basketball star O.J. Mayo from the campus grounds. That will show the world how deeply sorry we are, and how committed we are to seeking athletic success in the Right Way, won’t it?
I wonder if Mr. Nikias also plans to forfeit victories or redirect some of the money the school made because of Bush’s exploits toward charity? Yes, of course, I’m being facetious.
