The Heisman Trophy Trust is expected to strip former USC running back Reggie Bush of his 2005 Heisman Trophy and leave the award vacant, Yahoo Sports reported.

Two sources close to the trust said the organization is completing its investigation and will agree with the NCAA's finding that Bush accepted improper benefits while at USC and was ineligible during the 2005 season, according to the report. The NCAA cited USC for "lack of institutional control" and handed the Trojans four years' probation, a two-year bowl ban and a reduction in football scholarships.

"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.

"The status of the USC/Bush matter remains unchanged. Any reports to the contrary are inaccurate," Dockery said.

ESPN's Chris Fowler told "SportsCenter" that although members of the eight-person trust have had informal conversations among themselves about what to do about Bush's Heisman, "they certainly have not made any decision" about rescinding it.

"They haven't made a decision. No announcement is imminent," Fowler said Tuesday. "They have not had any formal meetings about this."

Many reports are saying they haven't made any decision yet.

To me it'd be stupid to take his Heisman, he didn't do anything to enhance his actual performance on the field. People just couldn't tackle him and he was the best college football player in 2005. He deserves it.

As a USC fan here's my take...

His family broke the rules. One of the main things that has been talked about but kind of ignored is that Reggie Bush never directly took anything for himself. It was his family who had the house, car, etc. Now according to the rules, that would make him ineligible. So really an ineligible player cannot receive any reward.

They can take his heisman away. But nothing he did off the field had any impact on the fact that he was the best college football player that season.

That's exactly why its funny when I hear people call Reggie a cheater and all that crap. He didn't take performance enhancing drugs, thats cheating. His family living in a house that was being paid for did not make him stronger or faster on the field. He simply broke the rules and has to live with the consequences. But nothing that happened should take away from his season that year. He was a beast that year, whether anyone likes it or not, thats a fact.
