The Absurdity of Taking Away Reggie Bush's Heisman Trophy Award!

Taking away Reggie Bush's Heisman Trophy Award 5 years after the fact is beyond absurd! What's next, are they also going to take away the Pittsburgh Steelers' Super Bowl trophy from the 2005 NFL season because there were 3 bad calls in the Steelers' Super Bowl victory in February 2006 against the Seattle Seahawks that tipped the game towards the Steelers? That would be absurd, but not any more absurd than taking away Bush's Heisman Trophy award 5 years after the fact. Apparently, they have never heard of a little thing called statute of limitations. Why stop there? Why not take O.J. Simpson's Heisman trophy award away 42 years after the fact for chopping off the heads of two people? That would make more sense. What if Reggie Bush had passed away 6 months ago and then they found the evidence that they did that he was paid under the table? If that were the case, would they have taken away his Heisman's posthumously? I think it is safe to say that at least half of the Heisman winners were compensated under the table (in one form or another), just like it is safe to say that at least half of U.S. Presidents have been unfaithful to their wives. Why not take Thomas Jefferson's portrait off of Mt. Rushmore because he was unfaithful to his wife? The point is, in addition to being grossly absurd and petty, taking the Heisman Trophy away from Reggie Bush sets either a very bad precedent in which half of Heisman winners will be stripped of their trophies or a future manifestation of grandiose inconsistency. Obviously, both scenarios are unfavorable. I guess just like the poor will always be with us, so will the petty! It sure is a good thing that this football handicapper does a much better job of making NFL picks than the NCAA football rules committee makes stripping away a trophy 5 years after it has been awarded.
