On December 3, 2006 I took my seat in the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana and watched Reggie Bush score not one, not two, not three but FOUR DAMN TOUCHDOWNS in a single game for the Saints against the San Francisco 49ers. A few months later, a friend of mine was chatting with Mr. Bush about that game and Mr. Bush told him "I could have had FIVE." Since then I have always wondered what would Reggie Bush have accomplished on the hallowed grounds of Kehoe Field at Georgetown instead of honing his skills at USC, and this $pon$ored po$t pre$ented the opportunity to write about it.

Reggie Bush Goes to Georgetown After The Jump:

Let's go to the stats, shall we? Over the course of his legendary career at USC, Reggie Bush managed to finish tenth in NCAA Division I-A history with 6,541 all-purpose yards, racking up 3,169 yards and 25 touchdowns on 433 carries (7.3 avg) and 1,301 yards with thirteen scores on 95 catches. Bush also returned 67 kickoffs for 1,522 yards and a touchdown, adding 559 yards and three scores on 44 punt returns. He also completed one of three pass attempts for a 52-yard touchdown.

Applying a scientifically determined multiplier of 10 to those stats as a result of playing in the rough and tumble Patriot League, I have therefore determined that Reggie Bush would have finished first in every single relevant offensive category for running backs in the history of the NCAA with approximately 65,410 all-purpose yards, racking up 31,690 yards and 250 touchdowns on 433 carries (a modest 70.3 avg) and 13,010 yards with one hundred and thirty scores on 950 catches. Bush also would have returned every single kickoff and punt return for a touchdown, and since he would have also played QB for the Hoyas he would have completed every single pass that he ever attempted and all would have indisputably gone for touchdowns.

Clearly, Reggie Bush made a mistake attending USC. Then again, if he did go to Georgetown the school would have likely been slapped with the Death Penalty for all of Reggie's off the field antics, and that would prevent us from playing perennial powers such as Lehigh and Colgate each season.

Both Reggie Bush and Hoyas fans around the world can watch the Georgetown Football Hoyas on TV this season, as ESPNU will be broadcasting Georgetown's game against the mighty Tigers of Princeton on September 21st.

Hoya Saxa!
