Haden, after a long pause and sigh, replied:

If I were Reggie Bush with Pat Haden’s soul, yes.

Patrick: “Does he have your soul?
Haden: “I don’t know Reggie Bush.


Bush has given no indication publicly that he plans to return the Heisman Trophy. The organization that oversees the award, the Heisman Trust, has not asked Bush to return the award.

USC returned its copy of the award last month, making the announcement on the day Haden was hired.
