Look, I don't doubt that what he did was wrong. I really don't. I just think it'd be really fucking hard to turn down a house or a car of $300,000.00 when I was 19 or 20... I'm just saying.
And I would not want that damned trophy NOW if I were Vince. It just wouldn't mean shit to me at this point. It's like a Milli-Vanilli Grammy....
ETA: Oh and I loved this portion of his statement:
For the rest of my days, I will continue to strive to demonstrate through my actions and words that I was deserving of the confidence placed in me by the Heisman Trophy Trust. I would like to begin in this effort by turning a negative situation into a positive one by working with the Trustees to establish an educational program which will assist student-athletes and their families avoid some of the mistakes that I made. I am determined to view this event as an opportunity to help others and to advance the values and mission of the Heisman Trophy Trust.
