Matt Leinart, Brady Quinn Feud on Twitter over 'Bush Push'

In October 2005, USC quarterback Matt Leinart scored a late rushing touchdown with some help from running back Reggie Bush to lead the Trojans to a 34-31 victory over the rival Notre Dame Fighting Irish.  

It seems Brady Quinn, the Notre Dame quarterback on that fateful night, still isn't over the "Bush Push." 

While appearing on an episode of the BTN Take Ten Podcast released on August 4, Quinn discussed that famous play: 

"They cheated. They know it. He knows it. I've always told him, though, that if you ain't cheating, you ain't trying. I would hope my running back would've done the same thing for me if I couldn't have gotten in on a quarterback sneak. But given my track record of quarterback sneaks, I think I probably would've been more successful than that."

Leinart elected to respond via Twitter, and a playful online feud between the two former signal-callers was on:
