Reggie Bush Scandal: Reggie Stripped of Heisman Trophy?

The Heisman Trophy Trust is expected to strip Reggie Bush of the Heisman Trophy by the end of September.
Also the Heisman Trust is likely to keep the award vacant instead of offering it to runner up and former Texas Longhorns quarterback Vince Young.
Can anyone explain the details of this scandal? Has this decision been confirmed by the Heisman Trust?

It hasn't been confirmed yet. "I can tell you the Heisman Trophy trust has made no decision regarding the Reggie Bush situation," Robert Whalen, executive director of the Heisman Trophy Trust, told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

If it happens, Reggie Bush would become the first player in the 75-year history of the Heisman Trophy to be stripped of it.
The NCAA and Heisman trust have been conducting investigations into Bush's eligibility after allegations of accepting cash and gifts while playing for the University of Southern California.

If the Heisman Trust wants to create a new standard of behavior for its winners, then it shouldn't start with Bush. It should start with players such as Sims, Simpson and Cannon.
