Nearly five years after Reggie Bush won the Heisman Trophy, Mack Brown is still campaigning that it should have gone to Vince Young.
“I think you have to go back and really give that choice to the Heisman Trust. If they take it away, I think Vince should be awarded the trophy . . . Vince was second in the voting, so even if they re-voted I would like to see Vince get it,” Brown said on the Dan Patrick Show Monday.
The Longhorn head coach also believes that had voting been moved until after the bowl games, VY would have won the prestigious award. Honestly, Bush’s Heisman should have been revoked after the national championship when he decided to lateral the ball to his teammate like a nincompoop.
USC has returned its copy of Bush’s Heisman and stripped the university of everything that reminded anybody of him. Ever. The Heisman Trust has not yet asked Bush to return his personal copy of the Heisman and it’s unclear as to if or when they will.
“The Trust will be considering the issues raised in the USC/Reggie Bush matter, and after reaching a decision will publish it, but due to the complex issues involved and the Trust’s desire to reach an appropriate decision, no definitive timetable has been established,” said William Dockery, president of the Trust. “Until the matter has been fully considered and a decision is reached, the Trust has no further comment.”
Other than Mack Brown, does anybody think Bush’s Heisman should be given to Vince Young?
