If USC, Bush cheated, should they lose BCS title, Heisman?

  The 125-year NCAA investigation (okay, that’s a SLIGHT exaggeration) into the University of Southern California football program and star running back Reggie Bush is expected to mercifully come to an end soon. There were rumblings that the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions would release its report last week but it didn’t. The investigation has been going on since 2006 so what’s a few more days? USC went before the Infractions Committee in February. In the old days they used to come up with a decision about six weeks after the hearing. Not any more.  Hey, it’s complicated and this is one of the most complicated cases ever.

This all happened a long time ago so let’s recap: Bush, the 2005 Heisman Trophy winner, allegedly received $300,000 in cash and other benefits from a two “gentlemen” (Lloyd Lake, Michael Michaels) who wanted to be Bush’s agent. But Bush stiffed those guys and went with another agency. They sued. NCAA investigators hoped that Bush would be put on the witness stand or, at the very least, have to sit for a deposition. Lying to NCAA investigators has no consequences unless you’re a current college player (ask Dez Bryant). But lying under oath gets you fitted for a striped suit and tin cup. It came as no surprise when Bush settled the case out of court rather than be compelled to tell the truth about his relationship with the two gentlemen in question.

I don’t have to tell you that a lot of people are watching this case and are handicapping the outcome. Opinions differ.  Former USC coach Pete Carroll, who got out of town (Seattle Seahawks) in January just ahead of the NCAA posse, said last week that he would be surprised if tough sanctions came down.

But elsewhere in the college football universe, this is seen as a big case test on whether or not the NCAA has the stomach to take down a high-profile football program that is not named Alabama.

If only half of what has been reported about Bush is true and USC skates on this one, there will be a nuclear eruption in Tuscaloosa, Ala. The Crimson Tide program was hammered for rules violations in 2002 and the penalties came with a considerable amount of finger wagging from the NCAA. Who could forget infractions committee chairman Tom Yeager saying that the committee considered giving Alabama the death penalty? He said that Alabama was “absolutely staring down the barrel of a gun (death penalty)” but the committee settled on a two-year bowl ban and the loss of 21 scholarships over three years.

Will the NCAA have the same righteous indignation for misbehavior and lack of institutional control, if proven, that takes place on the West Coast?

It is going to get pretty nasty if USC just gets a slap on the wrist.

Here are two big questions to keep in mind as we await the USC verdict:

No. 1: The qualifications for winning the Heisman Trophy clearly state that the recipient must be NCAA eligible. What if the NCAA proves after the fact that Bush was NOT eligible when he competed and won the Heisman in 2005? Many Heisman winners have had brushes with the law after winning the award but none has ever been stripped of the honor. On its website it says that the “Heisman Trophy Trust ensures the continuation and the integrity of this award.” But would the Heisman Trust want to open this can of worms? My friend Tom Shatel of the Omaha World-Herald suggests that if Bush cheated his Heisman Trophy should just be “vacated” or just stricken from the record books like it never happened.

Here is what I would do. If it is proven that Mr. Bush was ineligible in 2005, rather than set the precedent of vacating the award for that year, I would simply send Mr. Bush a letter telling him he is no longer welcome at any function honoring past Heisman Trophy winners. You can keep the hardware, Reggie, but you are out of the club.  Of course now that Mr. Bush has been paid handsomely by the NFL I’m sure he feels the ends justify the means. In short, shame is probably no longer part of his makeup.

No. 2: Even if the NCAA puts USC on double-secret probation and takes away a bunch of scholarships, that body cannot strip USC of its 2004 BCS national championship. That’s because the NCAA doesn’t award national championships in Division I-A football. And what the NCAA does not giveth, it cannot taketh away.

The BCS does not have an enforcement arm and really doesn’t want to get into the enforcement business. But BCS officials have told me that they would have to consider it if the NCAA proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that USC cheated.

So I’ll put it to you. If the NCAA Committee on Infractions gets the goods on USC—and I’m talking about lock-solid proof– should the BCS take away the 2004 national championship and should Reggie Bush be stripped or otherwise publicly separated from 2005 his Heisman Trophy?

And what happens if, after four years of investigating, the NCAA comes up with nothing?

Those early years were the same amount of games that every other team played. Blame it on the lack of football teams.

As far as 1913 goes, they were one of the only teams in history to have not allowed a single point the entire season by an opposing team. Bama can not say that.

“Tough luck the trojans didn’t get the pleasure of pounding you for the 3rd straight year after raping you 23-0 the year before in Jordan-Hare and 28-14 the year before that.”

Um, nice rhetoric there. Too bad you gals are still reeling over a 6 year beat down by Auburn.

Auburn 2004 and the 2009/10 Bammer squads both had similar numbers. Except for the fact that Bammer almost lost twice.

Just saying, ma’am.

“Not impressed mam.”

Even then in the 80s Florida had points being ranked #1, did finish 1st in the SEC twice and never had a losing season in the decade. But whatever makes you feel good. As for Gator players in the pros. Yeah who won the rookie of the year last year? Who is the all time leading rusher in NFL history? What school did those pro bowl defensive players such as Wilber Marshall, Jevon Kearse, Kevin Carter, Jack Youngblood, Alex Brown, Louis Oliver, Mike Peterson, Lito Sheppard ect..play for? Or those offensive pro bowl players such as Fred Taylor, Jeff Mitchell, John L. Williams, Lomas Brown, Neal Anderson ect..play for? Sorry I couldnt continue with more names for you since I dont feel the need to name every single player from a school who ranks in the top 5 over the last 25 years in producing NFL players.

Now lets look at Bama’s unbeaten seasons

2009 14-0 Only 2nd team ever to do that, 1992 13-0, 1979 12-0, 1966 11-0, 1961 11-0, 1945 10-0, 1934 10-0, 1930 10-0, 1925 10-0. The difference between your seasons and ours is that in all of these seasons we were unbeaten and UNTIED. That would be 9 undefeated, untied seasons of 10 wins or more and at least 5 of them coming from the modern era of college football from the 1960s and forward. None of this crap from the 1800s or early 1900s when people played 3 to 5 games a year.

Now for our Auburnesque unbeaten seasons. 1936 8-0-1 oops- a tie plus we didn’t even win 10 games, 1926 9-0-1 another Auburnesque season,

and drumrolll please,

1897 we finished a blistering 1-0 for an undefeated season which parallels Auburn’s torrid undefeated seasons of 1893 3-0-2, 1897 2-0-1, 1900 4-0, and 1904 5-0.

Forrest Gump,

Its quite funny to watch you try to rationalize counting 2-0-1 and 3-0-2 as undefeated seasons. Quite amusing. I’m sure the neutral posters on here are getting a kick out of it.

What was that about us trying to get over 6 straight beatdowns? I’m sorry I didn’t realize we were living in the past. Since you want to livin in the past we can talk about whupping you 11 in a row at one point in the 70s and early 80s. But I just assume look at the current streak which is 2 in a row and about to be 3. What is it something like 900 days since you guys last beat us?

What was that about the AU 2004 team and the Bama 2009 team having similar numbers except that Bama almost lost twice? Shoulda, coulda, woulda, if, if, if. Sorry dude all I know is that when the final horn sounded we had more points at the end of the UT and AU game. Sorry that you couldn’t stop us on that epic 72 yard drive to finish you after we spotted you a 14 pt first qtr lead. We won 2 close games by 7 pts.

Sometimes I have to wonder just how stupid you really are. Did AU not have any close games in 2004? Uh, you might want to check your revisionist history there buddy. You beat LSU 10-9 in a game in which LSU just plain ran out of time. And what about edging an okay but not great VT team in a bowl game 16-13? Do we need to talk about the VT tight end dropping a 1 yd td pass in the 4th qtr that would have won the game for VT? No. We don’t need to talk about it because I don’t play that shoulda, coulda, woulda crap that you play. Seems to me the 2 close games you won by 4 pts is worse than the 2 close games we won by 7 points. Or is that math too complicated for you?

Patrick is some idiot from out in California. He drives tractor-trailers for a living and posts non-stop with stats about how great Coach Richt is over in Athens. He’s tried to sell him to anyone and everyone that will listen. Not calling you an idiot, but arguing with you is about the same as trying to argue with Patrick. It’ll never get anywhere. He keeps spilling “facts” (as he sees them), while you just keep hurling insults. I pretty much find both amusing.

Forrest Gump,

We may have accidentally stumbled upon one small point of agreement. I don’t make fun of AU for scheduling the citadel in 2004. I do point out that AU had a really weak noncon schedule that year and that ultimately that double aa opponent hurt them in their bcs points. The experts also largley seemed to agree that the ooc schedule ultimately is what did AU in that year. The fact of the matter is that we all play 2-3 patsys a year. Florida gets a break because they play FSU which in year’s past has been a national power and in the future probably will be again. We played VT last year, penn state this year, and then have 3 patsys. Pretty much every one does it. Georgia played a little tougher schedule the last 2 years with both Tech and OK state out of conference and then 2 patsys. Bottom line we can all make fun of the patsys each of us play but we all play them along with normally 2 decent ooc opponents like what Georgia did the last couple years or one big time ooc opponent and 3 patsys like we’ve been doing and like Florida normally does except that FSU has been down these last few years.

The winner will more than likely win the national title again and since we don’t know yet which of the 2 of us will win the game and hence the bcs again go ahead and bring him back up. If we win I’ll take him home to let him shine a yet to come 2010 bcs trophy and if you win then you just take him back to Gainesville to shine a future 2010 trophy. Deal?

“Hope you enjoy cheering for our rejects!”

But I don’t cheer for Chris Leak or Rex Grossman.
