Reginald Bush II won the 2005 Heisman Trophy, but due to theft, he got it taken away. Some say, the runner-up, Vince Young, should take it, and some say that the University of Southern California should keep their trophy, and that Reggie's heisman should just be taken away.
In 2005, Reggie Bush won the Heisman Trophy. Vince Young was the runner up. But Bush was made to return the trophy because he had accepted gifts from his agent which was not allowed.
