Revisionist history says the voters screwed up by giving Reggie Bush the Heisman Trophy.
But look on the bright side, NCAA, it is better to give back a personal award than to vacate a national championship.
What if Reggie Bush hadn't made that stupid lateral (thank you, karma)? What if Vince Young didn't take Texas on his back and win the national championship?
We would be staring at a vacated national championship and the sports world could fall apart.
So far the NCAA has avoided that apocalyptic event, but it has come perilously close a few times.
Here are the times when karma has saved the NCAA's tail in light of controversy.
