Infamous cyclist Lance Armstrong didn’t mince words when he attacked USC over its treatment of former football player Reggie Bush.
USC doesn’t observe its national championship game loss for the 2005 season to Texas as legit as the games were vacated because Bush was on the roster, and had taken illegal benefits.
Well, Armstrong thinks that’s a load of garbage, so he tweeted, “Negative @USC, we were there. You lost the game fair and square. Btw, @ReggieBush is a f*cking legend that you sh*t all over.”

Bush was one of the most electric football players in all of college football history. However, the sanctions that stemmed from his actions harmed the Trojans for many years afterwards.
He might have hurt the program, but the school’s decision to throw him under the bus so quickly wasn’t wise. He certainly wasn’t the only kid in college sports breaking the rules, and USC never would have been where they were at the time without him.
I have to agree with Armstrong’s assessment on this one, but it’s also funny watching him lecturing people on the rules given his shady past with doping.
