If you went to Yahoo Sports yesterday, you could not have avoided seeing the story about the Yahoo Sports Exclusive investigation on Reggie Bush and his family receiving payments while he was at USC.
It is important to note that pretty much every other sports news outlet had a ‘brief mention’ of it only. Does that tell you something? I don’t know – you decide yourself.
What interest does Yahoo Sports have in doing this investigation when Pac-10 and USC are also doing it? Is there an investigation team bake-off? And how can Yahoo come up with their findings before the rest, and be bold enough to create a stir?
I don’t know what is true and what is not. But stripping the Heisman and the National Title is certainly childish. So what, is ESPN going to start saying ‘USC, the winner of the national title which was taken away 2 years later, won its game against so-and-so’? Will you refer to Reggie Bush as the Heisman winner who gave up his trophy the following year after he was chosen #2 in the draft? Its pointless.
