Vince Young on Reggie Bush's Heisman: 'I'm not going to say no to it'

The Heisman Trophy Trust will hold its monthly meeting today and, although members have not indicated whether stripping Reggie Bush of the 2005 award will be on the agenda, Vince Young has decided he'd take it after all.

"I definitely want it, I definitely want it,'' Young said in a "SportsCenter" interview. "But he won it fair and square definitely, and it's much respect to Reggie, man. He had a great career and he's already won a Super Bowl before me. I'm already mad about that.
"But at the same time I am definitely happy for him, man, and he is definitely the Heisman Trophy winner for that year. But if they send it over to me I am not going to say no to it.''

Really, who can blame him? It's a perfectly good Heisman and it seems a shame to let it go to waste.

If you're keeping track, score it this way:

People who think Bush should keep his Heisman: Young's mother, Felicia Young;

People who think Young should get the award if it's taken from Bush: Young's coach at Texas, Mack Brown.

Reggie Bush is 10 lbs. of stink in a 5 lb. bag. What good is an award you cheat to win.
