    Reggie Bush, family tied to scandal?

    From Charles Robinson, Yahoo! Sports:

    SPRING VALLEY, Calif. – In this sprawling hilltop community with a breathtaking view of Sweetwater Lake, it was no secret who lived in the 3,000-square-foot house at the corner of Apple Street and Luther Avenue.

    That home, residents would tell you, was where Reggie Bush's family lived.

    That is, until this weekend, when the family abruptly packed up and vacated the residence – less than 24 hours after Yahoo! Sports approached Bush's mother about information linking the property to Michael Michaels, a man who is alleged to have tried to play a role in steering Bush toward an agent and who also has ties to a sports marketing company.

    Days before Bush is expected to be the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft, unanswered questions about the residence and how his mother, stepfather and brother came to live in it within the last year have prompted the University of Southern California to refer the matter to the Pacific-10 Conference for an investigation.

    From the looks of it it probably won't effect his draft dreams. But it sure could be an embarassment to USC if there were some under the table things going on.
    Pro-Football Talk says this:
    Regardless of how it might affect Bush, this whole thing could get very interesting for the folks at Southern Cal. Since the Griffins apparently were living in the house during the 2005 season, the NCAA could eventually rule that Bush was ineligible -- and likewise could require the Trojans to forfeit all of their 2005 victories. Though we doubt for now that such an extreme outcome will result, Robinson reports that USC has referred the matter to the Pac-10 for an investigation.

    I don't see anything coming of this.. If they want to make a big deal about it, they could, but what would that prove? This will do nothing to diminish his draft stock..

    You know, now that this has come up, people are going to try and make his family look like they're bad people. And the sad thing is that they're NOT !!! His Step-dad in particular is a very nice man. I had the oppurtunity to meet him in Hawaii for the season opener at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel and he sat with me and my friends for a long time . He was NOT full of himself. He spoke of how proud he was of Reggie. And low and behold , he saw us at the game, and came over and chilled with us. When we went to the home opener against Arkansas, he and former Trojan gaurd Fred Matua's dad, came over to us and tailgated with us too. I really hope this man dosen't get villafied. He really IS a good guy...
