Reggie Bush -- Regrets and Disappointment

6/10/2010 3:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0610_reggie_bush_BN_TMZReggie 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.

Geoff you're speaking moron...



It comes out of the pockets of every other kid going to school. Why don't you go fluff Terrell Pryor to go to your school?



As for USC let them pay the piper, they are clearly corrupt if there is an investigation for Mayo, as well, they play clean until they get caught.



TMZ, can you acquire Reggie Bush's School Transcripts and see what he may have got for Business Ethics class?

I never understood why the colleges are the only ones that get screwed in these situations, leaving the remaining players without a chance to go to a National Championship. VERY UNFAIR! They should have less harsh penalties for the school (unless the school knows it's going on), and more penalties to the individual players that are the ones doing the wrong thing. Such as suspend THEM without pay in the NFL/NBA for a year or 2. THEY are the ones who are to blame!!!

Nice job, Bush. You're arrogance and selfishness just cost your teammates. It’s terrible that those student-athletes who worked so hard and to them football was/is everything and now that has been taken away. What did he think would happen? The NCAA would just punish him with a slap on the wrist and it would all go away? Unfortunately there are other colleges in similar situations…it only takes one ******* to screw it up for everyone. Strip him of the Heisman and give him the “I’m a f***tard” trophy.

People look up to these athlete like they are god just because they can run or shoot a ball ,when in reality if they weren't in sport ,most would be common criminal .They are the most selfish human being on the planet,they think are not accountable for their action .I wouldn't want my kid to look up to these fools .

I'm absoulety certain the day Reggie admitts to all of the NCAA vilolations, is the same day that Barry Bonds admitts to taking steroids. But, then again, it took Pete Rose a few decades to finally admitt to gambling in major leaque baseball. Reggie's denials will go on for as long as he could hold out. Perhaps a Gongressional hearing is in order, and hear him lie under oath. In fact, having good old Pete Carroll and Mike Garrett on the stand as well would be epic. You could cut the tension in the room with Tommy Trojan's sword.
