Terry Bowden on SUC/Bushgate

HT to a BRO poster for pointing to this Bowden post on Yahoo Sports:

I saw where Reggie Bush's family agreed to a settlement and gave between $200,000 and $300,000 to Michael Michaels for unpaid rent and for benefits they received while Reggie was playing and winning a national championship for USC. Of course the family, including Reggie, always has maintained that it never violated any NCAA rules or regulations. The NCAA says it has made two requests to meet with Reggie Bush through his attorney and followed up with a written request, but didn't get a response. Bush contradicted this assertion while visiting a Southern California practice last week, saying that he had not been contacted and that if he had he would have hung up the phone. If Reggie Bush and his family continue to stonewall the NCAA like this, the organization has no other recourse but to go after USC as severely as possible and punish the institution for the actions of one of its players. This would include forfeiting games that he played in, even the national championship. If the NCAA does not act decisively here, it might as well forget about ever enforcing its rule against extra benefits. Terry is right of coures. If the NCAA doesn't punish SUC, then they might as well just give up on punishing teams for giving extra benefits.

ALSO NOTE THE TERRY CORRECTLY IDENTIFIES A SINGLE CHAMPIONSHIP CHEATY PETEY'S SUC TEAM WON.
