Former USC running back Reggie Bush is determined to “expose” the leadership at the NCAA after it refused to revisit past penalties, thereby preventing Bush from getting his 2005 Heisman Trophy back — despite the Supreme Court NIL ruling that enables amateur athletes to now profit off their likeness.
Earlier this month, the Heisman Trust determined that Bush’s trophy would only be returned if the NCAA reversed USC’s vacated records. The day before, following the NIL ruling, Bush lobbied for the return of his Heisman.
On Wednesday, the NCAA announced that it will not reverse past penalties nor vacated records. In response, Bush’s attorney posted a letter on Bush’s Twitter account vociferously decrying the decision.
