USC Football 'Vacates' Nat'l Championship Win

6/10/2010 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The NCAA just blew up USC football's world by forcing the Trojans to vacate their victory in the '05 Orange Bowl ... a win that earned them the National Championship. 

USC Football  trojans  reggie bush

This all comes after an NCAA investigation concluded Reggie Bush got improper benefits while at USC.

According to the NCAA findings Bush received a car, and his family received a house and other financial benefits.

In addition to the National Championship game, USC must also vacate its 12 victories from the '05 season -- Reggie's last before turning pro -- and the university is banned from bowl games for the next 2 seasons, and on probation for 4 years.

Fight on.

NOTE: The NCAA specifically uses the word "vacate" instead of forfeit because the Trojan's opponents in those games don't get the win.

I agree Reggie is an overpayed athlete & more a media whore. But all of this came about from USC & their football program. I think they should clean house of everyone involved, however they choose to blame it all on Reggie! Typical of these people to jump ship. And for those of you making racial comments - USC is run by good ole white boys, the same good ole boys who threw $, cars & everything else at Reggie, including a house for his parents. Sure he should give up the Heismann Trophy, but those good ole boys are the real criminals and should be charged as such.

Why did it take 5 years for the NCAA to admit what we all have known for years---the USC are cheaters. I feel badly for the teams that were beaten and could not enjoy their victory at the time. Another team was cheated out of being natoinal champions. Sad day for collage sports.

Its all KK's fault. Bad karma will follow Reggie and USC forever because he was doing the horizontal limbo with that piece of trash. All of those Kardashians are prostitutes and their mom is their pimp.

Why blame him. The school made the offer when they knew they were not suppose to . Any of you would have taken the offer to.
