Reggie Bush has come clean — sort of.

Bush finally spoke publicly for the first time Wednesday about the sanctions that Southern Cal received from the NCAA as a result of a four-year investigation that centered largely on the former Trojans running back and Heisman Trophy winner. Bush didn’t admit any wrongdoing — his oft-repeated theme over the years — and said he couldn’t talk specifics. But the New Orleans Saints running back says it’s his responsibility to deal with the fall out.

Troy, of course, continues to smolder. The NCAA hit USC with severe sanctions and ruled Bush retroactively ineligible for the 2005 season for receiving improper benefits.

“For the people who say … well I’ve heard people say that I don’t really care about this too much and I just brush it off my shoulders. Those people don’t know me. Because this thing regarding USC and the NCAA is to me the closest thing to death without dying,” Bush told the New Orleans media.
