Vince Young Wants Heisman Trophy, If Taken Away From Reggie Bush
Vince Young Heisman Trophy Comments: Would Accept 2005 Heisman Trophy If Taken Away From Reggie Bush
Tennessee Titans Quarterback, Vince Young has weighed on the Reggie Bush Heisman trophy scandal.
Speaking to ESPN, Vince Young says if the Heisman Trust takes the trophy away from Reggie Bush who won it in 2005, then he would accept it.
"I definitely want it, I definitely want it,'' said Young, who was runner-up for the Heisman that year, when he guided Texas to the national championship. "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.''
Reggie Bush, the star running back for the New Orleans Saints won the Heiman in 2005 while playing for the USC Trojans.
An NCCA investigation revealed that USC violated league recruiting rules and Bush was at the center of the scandal. USC has essentially stripped Bush from its records books and the Heisman Trust is considering a course of action against Bush.
