No, he hasn't given away his Heisman quite yet, but it is not looking good for Reggie Bush when it comes to the court of public appearance.
Reggie Bush failed to show up for a scheduled deposition on Monday, the latest twist in the civil lawsuit against the former Heisman Trophy winner who allegedly accepted cash and gifts from sports marketers during his sophomore and junior seasons at Southern California.
"He literally ran from his deposition," said Brian Watkins, the attorney for sports marketer Lloyd Lake, who is suing Bush.
Watkins said he received a fax from one of Bush's attorneys saying the New Orleans Saints' running back wouldn't be coming.
We know that Bush is pretty much guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in at least one department when it comes to the ladies:
I think the NCAA should grow some balls and strip away the Trojan's wins during the Bush period to at least get them to start talking. Bush, his family, his lawyers, and USC are rightfully and logically not going to say shit to hurt themselves unless someone threatens them with forfeits and stripping away his Heisman Trophy. Like the steroid era I'm tired of people dragging this garbage out and not confessing to doing what they did wrong. Everyone knows that MLB players were using performance enhancers just like everyone knows Bush took a lot of money while playing ball at USC.
Bush could at least gain some respect back, albeit a little, by just saying he fucked up and got greedy and took gifts and money like a lot of us would in his situation. He also could have avoided all this by cutting and weaving by giving Lloyd Lake his money back a long time ago. In other words Bush is an idiot. A rich one who could turn out to be like Michael Vick when all is said and done.
