Reggie Buch this week returned his 2005 Heisman Trophy after admitting that he won it while violating NCAA rules during his playing days at USC.

There are a lot more questions concerning this year’s Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship than there are competitors in the field. Perhaps sitting atop the heap of questions is the one which has been around for about three years now:
