The Heisman Trust said it would have no issues with that if the NCAA reinstated his status — but the org. declined to do so … and White said he LOATHES that it’s effectively barring Bush from getting the trophy by doing that.
“It’s despicable,” said the former Trojans tailback, who was in the TMZ office with former NFL star Chris Johnson. “When you think about it, obviously we know he made a mistake back then and he paid for it. He knows it. It was 20 years. Now, it’s time to just finally welcome him back. It’s been too long.”
Bush himself would clearly still welcome the award back to his mantle — in fact, he just recently starred in a Wendy’s commercial poking fun at the NCAA over the drama.
White says he’s optimistic the organization will eventually come around on the issue … and help return the trophy to Bush.
