What Bush did was something called "aiding the runner". NCAA rules committee secretary-editor John Adams did not see the play from his home in Colorado early Saturday night but told SportsLine.com by phone that a teammate cannot help a ball carrier in such a situation into the end zone.

While it is rarely called, a flag could have been thrown because there's no way Leinart gets in without Bush's help.

They knew it to the point that USC players were joking about it.

"I just shoved him in there as hard as I could," Bush said.

"I didn't want to spike the ball," Leinart said. "I made the choice. Reggie was like, 'You're welcome, man. I pushed you.'"

Get over it...there was much controversy in the end...but if you want to talk about cheap, how bout on sunday in the atlanta vs. NO game. A usually uncalled holding penalty giving the Atlanta kicker another chance at a perviously botched field goal. http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/recap?gameId=251016018

I'm just saying if you want to argue cheap calls, etc, go with a call that shouldn't ahve been made, not one that should...and yes i see the irony in the get over it statement.

It was cheating, and if they had replay it would have been overturned... but it should not have come down to that... ND should have won on that 4th and 9 :( If the corner turns around on that pass he knocks down the ball and ND wins the game, but he doesnt.. and we know how the rest of the game plays out.

Dragons has it right...unless it gets caught, "play it as it lies" in a sense.

They went to that as soon as the Cowboys game was over. I never see holding called on the offense or defense on field goals, but I did on Sunday. It was garbage.

It's still a part when you do get caught because everybody knows you won't get called everytime.

I think the Notre Dame rb would probably have done the same thing. I say play to win, so long as you do it with class and sportsmanship.

They should've taught Tech how to cheat!

I personally think Leinart, being 6'5" would have been able to extend his arms and break the plane anyway.

I just wish they would have spotted the ball correctly. From the proper spot it might have been an interesting turnout.
