So the man who started this whole mess to begin with, Reggie Bush, has finally spoken out in the wake of various media reports stating that USC will receive a two-year bowl ban and a loss of at least 20 scholarships stemming from violations committed by Bush himself during his three-year stay at USC from 2003 and 2005. The current New Orleans Saints running back said the following in a statement that appeared on ESPN this morning.
"I have a great love for the University of Southern California and I very much regret the turn that this matter has taken, not only for USC, but for the fans and players. I am disappointed by today's decision and disagree with the NCAA's findings. If the University decides to appeal, I will continue to cooperate with the NCAA and USC, as I did during the investigation. In the meantime, I will continue to focus on making a positive impact for the University and for the community where I live."
Granted, it'd be nice if Bush had seemed a little more remorsful throughout this whole ordeal.
But in reality, what's done is done. It's time to move on. Heck, at least he didn't kill anybody.
