    Re: R. Bush recieved gifts USC

    Oh man.

    I'm sure he cant afford to pay his tuition now that he is making millions.


    Who cares if he took money, who care, who cares, who cares.

    There are politicians and police officers, government officials etc, who take bribes everyday and this is such a big deal.

    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 jiggly butt.

    Wouldn't they have to prove that the sports agent was paying him for the school?
    I do not think it will effect the school at all.

    Absolutely not.
    Booster money has always gotten the schools into trouble.
    The player is under contract with the school (letter-of-intent, scholarship) and it is their responsibility to ensure that no illegal (NCAA illegal) conduct takes place.

    Reggie Bush takes money.
    Reggie Bush, thus, was an ineligible player.
    Thus, USC used an ineligible player in winning games where he played.
    To the NCAA, it's cut and dry.

    I would bet money that if this comes to pass USC will not be held out of bowl games, they will not lose scholorships. Reggie Bush may lose his awards and there may be a fine levy'd on the school, but nothing that drastic. They deal in degrees of punishment as well. There will be an investigation and if USC comes out clean minus the Reggie Bush acting on his own with an outside agent I am sure USC walks away with a fine maybe.

    It will be interesting to see what happens.

    No reason to bet money on it.
    But I do think that USC will pay some sort of penalty if these tapes are real proof that he had illegal benefits.
    It's USC's job to police this sort of thing, like it or not.

    Here we go:

    If such taped conversations involving Bush become public, Bush and USC could face penalties from the NCAA and Pacific-10 Conference, which are conducting ongoing investigations into reports of extra benefits.

    If the NCAA rules that Bush received extra benefits during his playing career at USC, he could be ruled retroactively ineligible. Since some of the benefits date to the 2004 season, the Trojans' national championship that season could be rescinded. USC could face further NCAA sanctions and Bush's 2005 Heisman Trophy could be in jeopardy. The Heisman ballot indicates that an athlete must meet NCAA eligibility requirements to be considered for college football's most prestigious award.
