Bush vows to help ’SC

The Spokesman-Review

METAIRIE, La. – Though Reggie Bush admitted no wrongdoing he did express regret on Wednesday over his involvement in an NCAA probe that resulted in major sanctions for Southern California’s football program.

“This thing, regarding USC and the NCAA, is the closest thing to death without dying because I have such a great love and respect for the university,” Bush said. “This has been one the toughest things I’ve had to deal with in my life.

“I believe that there’s a lot of untold truth to this matter … Ultimately, it’s a responsibility that’s placed on USC and my shoulders. … So all I can do is continue to try to help them and move forward with the situation.”
