Reggie Bush is firing back at the NCAA for its decision to drop the hammer on his alma mater USC -- a decision mainly based on an investigation centered around Bush.
In a statement Reggie says "I very much regret the turn that this matter has taken, not only for USC, but for the fans and players."
He also states "I am disappointed by today's decision and disagree with the NCAA's findings."
Bush says he will cooperate with investigators if the university decides to appeal.
UPDATE: USC says it will appeal the NCAA ruling.
