Reggie Bush No Longer Listed as Heisman Trophy Winner on Heisman Website
When Reggie Bush forfeited the Heisman Trophy, I was curious to see how the Heisman Trust would handle his name in the record books. Would they list an asterisk by his name and explain that he forfeited the Trophy for being ineligible that year? Would they wholly strike his name from the list? I thought such an action would be extreme and that listing an asterisk would be the proper way to address the situation. I checked the Heisman site on Tuesday after Bush made his announcement and there was no change to the list. Returning a few days later to see if an adjustment was made, it appears as if the Heisman Trust took as strong a measure as possible — they’ve completely wiped out the 2005 year from the Heisman list:
Like I said, I think an asterisk would have been more appropriate to explain the situation. What do you think was the right thing for them to do?
