Lightbulb Reggie Bush ineligible?

That would make for some interesting news...

NFL | R. Bush's family being investigated by PAC-10
Sun, 23 Apr 2006 12:21:28 -0700
Charles Robinson, of Yahoo Sports, reports USC RB Reggie Bush's family is being investigated after they were found living in a 3,000-square-foot house linked to Michael Michaels, a man alleged to have tried steering Bush towards an agent and who has ties of his own to a sports marketing company. NCAA statues prohibit student-athletes or their families from receiving extra benefits from professional sports agents, marketing companies or their representatives. A breach in statutes could result in the athlete being ruled ineligible and all games in which they played could be forfeited. USC athletic department officials looked into it following reporters' questions about the matter. USC athletic director Mike Garrett said, "Rather than jumping to conclusions, we need to determine the facts before commenting on this report. We have asked the Pac-10 to look into this."

No, but if the NCAA gets their ass in a bunch over this it sounds like they could take away all of the USC wins that Bush played in or who knows what other sanctions they might punish the Trojans with.

Forget it. The Trojans won't forfeit, and the program might suffer a few scholarships. It's too high profile a program for the NCAA to come down on too hard.

I don't know!! The NCAA can be unpredictable pricks.

There was even some loose mention that the Downtown Club of New York that awards the Heisman could revoke Bush's trophy if they found just cause.

Never happen. The Trojans may lose BCS eligibilty next year at the most, more probably they'll lose a few scholarships.
