    R. Bush recieved gifts USC

    Old news resurfacing...why does it matter anymore?
    A little late, he already gave his Heisman Trophy to John Madden so he would quit making late-night phone calls to his residence.

    ==========================

    Saints | Taped conversations could confirm R. Bush received gifts
    Wed, 24 Jan 2007 21:52:36 -0800

    ESPN.com reports taped conversations between New Orleans Saints RB Reggie Bush or members of his family and an investor in a failed sports marketing agency could confirm Bush received gifts and cash while playing for USC, according to Yahoo.com. A federal investigation into extortion claims by Bush and his family revealed the taped conversations. The U.S. Attorney's office in San Diego has issued grand jury subpoenas to multiple witnesses in the probe. Lloyd Lake, who founded a sports marketing agency with hopes Bush would be his first client, is the subject of a grand jury probe into extortion claims. Multiple sources told Yahoo.com that Lake made the tapes in 2005 to protect his financial investment in case Bush backed out of a deal to sign with New Era Sports & Entertainment. Bush signed with agent Joel Segal and marketing agent Mike Ornstein in January 2006. Lake's mother, Barbara Gunner, recently testified before a grand jury, according to a Yahoo.com report. She claimed she had heard portions of tapes made by her son in which LaMar Griffin, Bush's stepfather, says Bush intended to repay New Era Sports "their money," as well as for a car that was purchased for him.

    Because if it is found that Bush accepted money, then USC is going to have to give back National Championships and money and stuff, as well as face sanctions like no bowls, loss of scholarships, etc.

    How does the school take the hit, if it is the agency that was paying him?

    I am asking a serious question, not being a smart ass.

    Wouldn't they have to prove that the sports agent was paying him for the school?
