Berwanger name crops up amid Reggie Bush controversy

The name of Jay Berwanger, subject of my current biography project, is hitting the papers and Internet a little more than usual lately, thanks to the the current Reggie Bush controversy. Should Bush return his Heisman trophy -- or should the Heisman committee rescind the award?

Gordon White, writing in The Pilot, of Southern Pines, N.C., tells some Berwanger history in light of It's largely accurate, though the "coward" reference is a bit out of context. Berwanger was usually the most hard-nosed player on the field.
