Bush Knows Texas Tax Code
On Sunday night the USC Trojans took part in their half of the annual Beef Bowl at Lawry's the Prime Rib restaurant in Beverly Hills. Each year, Lawry's separately hosts the teams in the Rose Bowl for a complimentary prime rib dinner, a tradition going back 50 years.
Before the event, Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush spoke to the media about the results of the so-called "Bush Bowl," the game between the two worst teams in the NFL. The loser of that game, the Houston Texans, got the first pick in April's NFL Draft, which many predict they'll use on Bush if he declares himself eligible after the Rose Bowl.
Bush said the fact that the Texans have the top pick won't influence his decision whether to turn pro, but he did say he was familiar with the team. "I do know a lot about the Houston Texans."
When pressed to elaborate, Bush spoke of his familiarity with the state's financial regulations. "I know Texas doesn't have [personal] state [income] tax."
Bush reiterated that he's still undecided about turning pro. "I haven't made my decision yet," he said. "I've talked to people. As of right now, I'm focused on [the Rose Bowl] and helping us with this game. It's a big game. We've got our work cut out for us."
Bush did say that the outcome of the Rose Bowl would not affect his decision. "No, not at all."
