  • Vince Young wants Heisman

    I think he deserves it

    "I definitely want it, I definitely want it," VY told ESPN "But he won it fair and square definitely, and it's much respect to Reggie, man. He had a great career and he's already won a Super Bowl before me. I'm already mad about that.


    "But at the same time I am definitely happy for him, man, and he is definitely the Heisman Trophy winner for that year. But if they send it over to me I am not going to say no to it."

    Just like a Long Whorn. Take it as sloppy seconds. I just think they should take it away and not have a winner for that year.

      And just saw reported on the ESPN bottom line that Bush is going to forfeit his Heisman.

        Given that KSU owns Texas, Vince should just go ahead and forward his incoming package ahead to Manhattan :dirtybird

          So Vince says Reggie won it fair and square. And deserved it.

          Yet, he wants the sloppy seconds?
          What a moron.

          Now that Bush has forfeited it, I think they just shouldn't give it to anyone.

            Statement from Reggie Bush issued via the Saints:

            One of the greatest honors of my life was winning the Heisman Trophy in 2005. For me, it was a dream come true.

            But I know that the Heisman is not mine alone. Far from it. I know that my victory was made possible by the discipline and hard work of my teammates, the steady guidance of my coaches, the inspiration of the fans, and the unconditional love of my family and friends. And I know that any young man fortunate enough to win the Heisman enters into a family of sorts. Each individual carries the legacy of the award and each one is entrusted with its good name.

            It is for these reasons that I have made the difficult decision to forfeit my title as Heisman winner of 2005. The persistent media speculation regarding allegations dating back to my years at USC has been both painful and distracting. In no way should the storm around these allegations reflect in any way on the dignity of this award, nor on any other institutions or individuals. Nor should it distract from outstanding performances and hard-earned achievements either in the past, present or future.

            For the rest of my days, I will continue to strive to demonstrate through my actions and words that I was deserving of the confidence placed in me by the Heisman Trophy Trust. I would like to begin in this effort by turning a negative situation into a positive one by working with the Trustees to establish an educational program which will assist student-athletes and their families avoid some of the mistakes that I made. I am determined to view this event as an opportunity to help others and to advance the values and mission of the Heisman Trophy Trust.

            I will forever appreciate the honor bestowed upon me as a winner of the Heisman. While this decision is heart-breaking, I find solace in knowing that the award was made possible by the support and love of so many. Those are gifts that can never be taken away.

              I think he could be a little less sincere in that statement. He could have also apologized for all the damage his actions have resulted in for USC and the players that have to wait two years to be in a bowl game.

                You know... I don't have too much issue with his statement. Granted it is completely fabricated to make him look good, it still has some good things in it. The fund to help poor athletes for example. Now, he did some bad things, and got caught. However, do any of us honestly believe he did them on his own? That no one else knew it was happening/set them up? So to put the entire blame on Reggie for USC going bowless for 2 years is a bit of a stretch.

                  Or that other players all over the country are not doing the exact same thing.
