Reggie's Got Some Splanin To Do

Incredible to think that guys that are on the verge of raking in more money than they could ever imagine, still jump the gun and break the rules. Being the first overall pick in the NFL draft almost guarantees that kind of money. Everybody’s All-American, and soon-to-be #1 overall pick, Reggie Bush may have been a little jumpy in Cash Collection 101 while at USC.

Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports is reporting that Bush’s parents promptly vacated a 3,000-square-foot house in a San Diego suburb over the weekend after the website approached Bush’s mother with inquiries about why they were living in a house that was linked to Michael Michaels, a sports marketer. Mr. Michaels is alleged to have tried to steer Bush to an agent.

USC has referred the matter to the NCAA.

"Rather than jumping to conclusions, we need to determine the facts before commenting on this report," Trojans athletic director Mike Garrett said in a statement released by the school on Friday. "We have asked the Pac-10 to look into this."

The school will need to do everything in its power to demonstrate that it had no knowledge of Bush’s dealings with Michaels, so any impropriety be proven. While Bush is raking in millions starting next week, the school gets to do the NCAA sanction-shuffle. What is it with SC running backs and their holier-than-thou attitudes?

Plus, Reggie's kin etched their family name into the concrete outside the house. Way to keep a low profile, Buhses!
