USC could be in trouble after Reggie Bush allegations

If allegations that former college RB Reggie Bush had received gifts prove true, USC could forfeit games.

USC could be in trouble after Reggie Bush allegations The football team of University of Southern California may be forced to forfeit games and more, if allegations against their former running back Reggie Bush prove true in court. As reported, a lawsuit has been filed in Superior Court by sports agent Lloyd Lake yesterday, accusing Reggie Bush and his family of accepting almost $300,000 in cash, gifts and other benefits, which they accepted between 2004-2006, while Reggie Bush played at USC. According to court papers, the family was having hard time financially and Lloyd Lake with partner Michael Michaels provided them with financial assistance. Michaels reached a settlement last year with Reggie Bush.

 Those allegations would have never been brought up, but Reggie Bush, currently playing his second year at the New Orleans Saints, signed with a different agent. Those allegations first came to light two years ago and the NCAA and Pac-10 have launched their own internal investigation of the matter. If they prove true, USC could be forced to forfeit games during the time Reggie Bush was with the USC football team, and he could also lose his Heisman Trophy. And if it turns out that the coaches knew about the benefits Reggie Bush was receiving, the school could face even more sanctions. According to Yahoo, Lloyd Lake will meet with NCAA investigators to provide them with evidence of the benefits received by Bush.

 Reggie Bush has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing in his dealings with the sports agent.
