The regime change in the athletic department at Southern Cal has already claimed its first victim, and he stands about 13 inches tall and is composed of solid bronze. No, it’s not Matt Leinart’s penis, but I like the way you’re thinking.
The University of Southern California will return the Heisman Trophy won by former star tailback Reggie Bush in 2005, incoming university president C.L. Max Nikias announced Tuesday.[..]
The Heisman Trophy Trust’s eight voting members will meet July 27 to determine what to do with Bush’s trophy. Members of the Trust declined comment on that meeting, and as of Tuesday afternoon they were still unaware of USC’s plans to return Bush’s Heisman. Whether such an unprecedented move will sway the Trust’s decision on Bush’s trophy remains to be seen. –Y! Sports.
Between new president Nikias and incoming AD Pat Haden, the school seems determined to put and end to what was jokingly called the last pro football team in Los Angeles, which is probably news to incoming football coach Lane Kiffin, who will have to deal with severe sanctions over the next two years. So even though the Trojans won’t be eligible to win the national championship for two years, they have a better chance than the 49ers do of winning the NFC West.
