Who says that college athletes don’t get paid? Because apparently Reggie Bush did pretty well for himself while at USC, considering that his parents were able to move from an apartment outside San Diego to a $757,000 house on Apple Lane. The Pac-10 says that they are investigating the Bush family home, but this is about as obvious as it gets. Michael Michaels (what kind of name is that anyway) is the registered owner of the house and has ties in the sports marketing world. If this violation holds up, USC would have to forfeit all games Bush played in while this infraction took place, although I am not sure how much good that really does, especially since they lost the only game that really mattered against Texas in the Rose Bowl.

Reggie Bush's Posh Family Home

What I don’t get about this whole thing is how something like this can go unnoticed for a whole year? Didn’t anyone go and visit Reggie Bush’s family and notice that they are suddenly living like royalty? It seems kind of hard to cover up a three-quarter of a million dollar home.

But honestly, I am really not all that surprised, considering they have a history of committing NCAA violations. And now that we know that Reggie Bush has no integrity, I wonder if this will affect his draft status? Probably not, but I can still hope that Vince somehow makes it to the Texans or Cowboys.

    Keep in mind that a $750,000 home in California is probably a $250,000 home in Texas. Still not chump change of course and still blatantly illegal.

    I was wondering how it would affect the draft too. I doubt it causes Bush to fall out of the top spot, but then again a little weed made Warren Sapp plummet so you never know. Maybe it’ll make the Texans weary of taking him and more likely to accept a trade offer for the pick now. They should be trading down with the Jets anyways, now they have another reason to.

    PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND UNLESS IT IS ADDRESSED TO YOU WHICH 9 TIMES OUT OF 10 IT IS NOT! Thank you!

    Hi My name is KRS 1, and this is addressed to Bush’s Aunt… I wanted to inquire about possibly meeting Reggie. I am not after his money!!! Ihave my OWN! I have 2 degrees and will be working on my Ph. D. But I have been interested in him before he played for the Saints. I am a God fearing women by the age of 24, no kids, came from a good family background, and is looking to become a lawyer in the future. I don’t know if this will get to you, but I am leaping out on faith and faith alone. This may be even called a desperate attempt, but I do not want to come off as a “Groupie!” I have class, morals, and standards that sets me apart from other girls. I am very interested in Reggie and we have a lot of things in common. I too was a Political Science major, and I love Football. I know all and I mean all of his stats and would just like to simply have a chance to meet him and see if we are a good match, that is if the rumors are not true about him and Ciara. But again I am simply leaping out on faith with this, don’t know if this will work, but I’ve got nothing to lose. P.S. I am not a Stalker, I reside in Chicago, never been to California nor New Orleans! Again this is not about money by any means my family does pretty well for themselves and so do I. Please, Please contact me if you would like to fulfill my dream. Thank you for your time and consideration.

    This may not be the appropriate place, but I’ve searched & searched for a site to email Reggie Bush.

    My son, Orlando, who is now 13, is probably Reggie Bush’s #1 fan. Since he lost his father 5 years ago, his only dream is to become a professional NFL player. He shared many special football moments with his dad & although I love football, I’m not a father. I do all I can to keep him pursuing his goal, but after he attended a summer football camp last year, it’s become more important to me to keep him focused on his dream.

    If he would just have the chance to meet his hero (after his dad is no longer here), I think that would make his dream more realistic.

    If anyone can help me find any contact information for Reggie Bush, I would be forever in debt.

    After losing my husband and the father of my 2 boys, my only dream is to see them fulfill theirs.

    This weekend he asked me to drive by his H.S. just to see the field where’s he’s going to play H.S. football to prepare him him for College, then, God willing, drafted to the NFL.

    It’s not just a dream, it’s a passion!

    Just a mere response from Mr. Bush will keep him focused.

    Please help.

    hi, Reggie I’m a huge fan just wanted to stop by to c what was good with you. And to see also would I actually get a comment back from you and not your agent nor your publist. hope you have a great season this year keep up the good work. hey keep you boy Vick in your prayers he needs them later. We know he’s not guilty

  29. reply to  #29

    Reggie B.

    Hey Stephanie, thanks for writing, but things arent so good. I am in trouble for violating ncaa rules and I am getting ready to have to give my Heisman trophy to Vince Young. Oh well, considering how bad he out-performed me in the Rose Bowl he deserves it. As for “my boy” Vick, he is innocent like you are smart. Too bad he cant be more like Vince Young, a class-act and incredible athlete.

    Ha. Reggie your honesty is refreshing. Finally you’ve admitted how bad you suck. Maybe you should mail Vince your Heisman so he can put it up in his house where it belongs. 🙂

    HI REGGIE, WAS HOPING YOU WOULD GET THIS, I HAVE PAINTED A 16″X 20″ PORTRAIT OF YOU WHEN YOU SHOT THROUGH A HOLE IN THE FALCONS’ KEVIN MATHIS. YOU RUSHED FOR 53 YARDS ON 13 CARRIES. I AM A “STARVING ARTIST” IN LOUISIANA AND THOUGHT YOU MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN THIS ONE OF A KIND “PAINTING. I HAVE TWO ADOPTED CHILDREN AND PAINT FOR HOPES OF PAYING MEDICAL BILLS. I WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO SEE THIS PAINTING. WILL SEND PHOTOS. THANKS, SANDY

  32. reply to  #32

    Reggie B.

    Thanks Sandy, I have always wanted a portrait of myself doing that. For your next painting would it be possible for you to capture the shock on my face when Vince Young dominated the Rose Bowl. If you really want to make some cash, Sandy, you should paint portraits of a winner like Vince Young. By the way, is McDonalds hiring? If you are short on money, get a real job. Stop paying for internet service, stop painting and start paying medical bills. If you are not capable of getting hired at McDonalds, I would be interested in knowing the name of the agency that gave you two kids.

    Hey, thanks for commenting on my page everyone. I appreciate the love. I’d like to address one of the earlier comments on this page from Royce-Lucas Taylor. As much as I’d like to come up to Urbana to hang out with you bro, Kim’s got me pretty tied down now that the super bowl is over. Keep repping the Hillclimbers. I’ve already got my eye on some film of yours. Pretty impressive. You got a real shot at going D1. Keep up the hard work and god bless.

And Bobby, no the name Adenia Bush doesn’t ring a bell with me. Who knows, she could be distant family though.

    Sincerely,
    Reggie Bush ……M.D.L.
