Report: New Orleans Saints Reggie Bush To Be Stripped Of Heisman Trophy
Written by  {ga=admin}


Update: ESPN contacted the Heisman Trust and that Bush report is false. No decision on Bush has been reached and trust won't meet again for a bout a month..11:03 am

The Heisman Trophy Trust is expected to strip  the New Orleans Saints and former USC running back Reggie Bush of his 2005 Heisman Trophy and leave the award vacant, Yahoo Sports reported.

Two sources close to the trust said the organization is completing an investigation and will agree with the NCAA's finding that Bush accepted improper  benefits while at USC and was ineligible during the 2005 season, according to the report.

Bush would become the first player in the 75-year history of the Heisman Trophy to have the awards taken away.

Bush is expected to play this Thursday as the New Orleans Saints play the Minnesota Vikings in the Superdome.  The game is pitted as the NFC championship game, which the Saints won earlier this year enroute to the Super Bowl.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
