For the last few days, I had to listen to commentator after commentator praise Reggie Bush as a hero for having the courage to give back his Heisman Trophy, but let’s get real here folks.

Reggie Bush is not some hero for being forced to give back his Heisman Trophy and FINALLY someone has had the courage to come out and call out Bush for being what he truly is; an idiot.

University of Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian who used to be on Pete Carroll’s staff while Bush was at SC, called Bush an idiot for not apologizing for what he put SC through.

Sarkisian told Shelly Smith of ESPN "He had a chance to apologize, look like the good guy, but in giving it back and not apologizing, he just looks like an idiot again."

Amen Coach Sarkisian. People need to stop making this guy out to be the victim in all of this when it was HIS selfishness and his parent’s selfishness that brought all this trouble to the program.

The fact that he still doesn’t have the balls to apologize makes him no hero or victim to me. Bush would have garnered more respect had he just admitted he messed up.

You can debate all day whether or not Bush deserved to have his Heisman taken away. What you can’t argue is that he has handled himself throughout this whole process like a coward, or an idiot, like Coach Sarkisian said.
