Reggie Bush — “There Will Be a Time and Place…”

Reggie Bush, who is officially part of Fox’s new pregame college football show (11 am eastern), was on Colin Cowherd today and just said, “there will be a time and a place,” when he will actually address what happened with him to ruin his USC ending, because he’s never really talked about it in any detail, to say the least. In reality, he’s never really spoken of it period, other than to say early on he “did nothing wrong” and much later that USC people bailed on him.

Reggie on USC today: “USC will always have a special place in my heart because I made so many relationships with players who are still some of my best friends to this day, with coaches, who are still some of my best friends to this day, you know — people who still work there at the university are people I still talk to. It was a great place for me. it was a great landing spot.

“It was truly meant to be. I believe that me going there was, was fate. I believe that it was meant for me to go there. And I go back to the recruiting trail, because I didn’t take all my recruiting visits because I had five and I only went to — Washington was first. I hated it, and didn’t like it. It was raining and cold.

“And then I went to USC and it just felt right. And there was something about the intuition and the feeling in my gut that, you know this is where I was meant to be, and I committed right there on the spot.

“And fast forward to a couple years, and you know I was able to win a Heisman Trophy, was able to play in a lot of great games. You know, I said in college, and I said in high school, that I was going to win the Heisman Trophy. So this wasn’t something that was just on my mind when I got to USC. This was something I was thinking about, and that I had put out into the atmosphere long before I got to USC. And it is true that words do have power.”

Reggie on Kyler Murray: “I think for Kyler Murray, all he’s been told his whole career, his whole life probably, is he’s too short, right, he’s too small and look how far he’s gotten to this point now. You don’t win the Heisman Trophy, you don’t get drafted in baseball, and soon to be the number one pick in football by not having tremendous leadership, tremendous work ethic.

“All the things that he was getting knocked for in the combine where he went and did some of those interviews…to me, talk to the people who know him. Talk to his head coach. Talk to his his family. Talk to the players who play with him because they all say something different. They all say that, ‘This guy can play and he makes the guys around him better.'”

And so to me, when I turn on the film, I see a great player regardless of his size. I see a guy who can create space with his legs, who can extend plays and extend plays to the point to where he can find open windows, right? If he can’t sit back in the pocket, he can move to where he can find that open window.”

Reggie on the new Fox CFB show: “I’m excited. I’m excited to be here. I can’t wait to help be a part of this show and hopefully take it to the next level. I’m lookin’ forward to it.”

There will be a place and a time to explain the events that took place with Reggie Bush’s actions that resulted in major sanctions and leading USC football to where it is today? There are some things we can blame Reggie on and some things we can’t. PC was on his way out whether USC got sanctioned or not. Who’s to blame for the questionable moves the administration made concerning the ADs & HCs? Who’s to blame for the NCAA naming Paul Dees the committee chairman who was out to get USC? What if Reggie’s mother & step dad made… Read more »

If Fox thinks they can use Bush on any news about USC without the USC fans throwing up in their mouths, they are wrong. How sickening, let Matt carry the news about USC, Bush can take a bathroom break until Matt is done.

I said this yesterday, I was a big Reggie bush fan. I might still have his autograph somewhere. But just like OJ Simpson, you just can’t trust those running backs. I mean look at Petros Does anyone trust Petros? I might take a stab at trusting OJ someday, but Reggie is just Bush to me.

That’s too funny. It’s quite the phenomenon with the future of USC running backs Petros is one of the biggest USC haters out there. LenDale White is another person who can’t get out of his own way.

Imagine Reggie Bush joining next year’s Urban Meyer coaching staff as RB’s coach…

Paul I don’t know if Meyer will come now. We will probably get sanctions again for this FBI dilemma. It looks like SC is going to be the red headed step child nobody wants Again. Hell, I don’t even think Kiffen will coach our team after NCAA gets done with us. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Dammit! Are we going to be stuck with Helton for another 10 years? It will be like Marvin Lewis with the Bengals.

If that came to be, Helton would be just about the luckiest dud in CFB ever.

That would be an understatement.

If Reggie could recruit and coach like he could play, I’d want him in a NY minute.

You never know until you try it. I would assume the recruiting would be easy for him. USC loves to give former players a try, so it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary.

I would like to hope there were some extenuating circumstances that have prevented him from being open about all that went on. Hopefully some day he can own up to his part and come clean on the whole affair. We’ll see.

I am glad that I entered USC and graduated from USC legally and above board. I can appreciate the fact that so many parents want their children to attend USC. But to go to these illegal means to be part of this family is embarrassing and shameful. In regards to Reggie Bush, no matter what people say about him, he is a Trojan. His legacy is left on the field and will be remembered by me forever. Whatever happened with his parents and how the university was punished for these assumed actions was extremely severe in relationship to other schools… Read more »
