We’ve been patiently waiting for Reggie Bush to apologize for being the sole reason that USC will be on probation for the next few years. But up until now, Bush hasn’t apologized to anyone. So he decided that the time was right to call up new USC AD Pat Haden and apologize for what he maintains that he didn’t do. And also throw in how he would love to give back his Heisman trophy, but for some reason, he can’t.
Reggie Bush apologized to new Southern California athletics director Pat Haden and expressed tremendous regret for his actions that landed the school on NCAA probation.
Haden says that in a 15-minute phone conversation the two men had last week, Bush, the 2005 Heisman Trophy winner who was found to have received illicit cash and benefits from a would-be sports marketer while starring for USC, wishes he could make amends to the school.
“He’s really contrite,” Haden says of Bush, who plays for the New Orleans Saints. “He knows he made a series of mistakes. It wasn’t just one mistake. It was a series of mistakes.
“He told me, ‘If I could turn the clock back, I would. If I could give the Heisman Trophy back, I would.’ “
I guess we can commend Bush for apologizing, even if it took him some time to actually do so, but he certainly could’ve saved the Heisman talk. I mean, seriously, if you really wanted to return it, you just return it. USC was able to return their copy, what would prevent Bush from returning his? Oh, I know…..he doesn’t believe he should return it. Mainly because he doesn’t think he’s done anything wrong. So that whole apology that we just commended Bush on, let’s just throw that out the window.
