FORMER USC RUNNING BACKS MEETING UP MONDAY NIGHT: Reunited, and it feels so good. Sort of:
USA TODAY runs in with news that when Tennessee battles New Orleans on Monday night, it’ll be the first time former tailback teammates Reggie Bush and LenDale White square off on the pro turf.
Since their fun-loving days together at USC, Bush and White have taken separate paths in the NFL. Bush had a stellar rookie season and got some backfields in motion, while White suffered through some first-year frustrations.
This year, both their football fortunes have turned around. LenDale scored his first TD last week for the fightin’ Titans, while Reggie is still waiting to set foot in the end zone for the 0-2 Saints.
But just because they’re wearing opposing jerseys, it doesn’t mean they can’t still be pals. White explains, “We text each other before every game good luck, and talk after every game to see how it went.”
So, it should be a touching moment when Reggie & LenDale meet face to face in the Superdome. Keep those tissues handy.
