Reggie Bush Releases Statement
Current New Orleans Saints and former USC running back Reggie Bush released a statement regarding the NCAA sanctions on USC.
I have a great love for the University of Southern California and I very much regret the turn that this matter has taken, not only for USC, but for the fans and players. I am disappointed by [Thursday's] decision and disagree with the NCAA's findings. If the University decides to appeal, I will continue to cooperate with the NCAA and USC, as I did during the investigation. In the meantime, I will continue to focus on making a positive impact for the University and for the community where I live.
The NCAA will officially release their findings and sanctions later this afternoon. It is expected that USC will face a two-year postseason ban, a loss of 20 scholarships, a restriction of contact with recruits and forfeiture of wins including the BCS National Championship in the 2004 season.
