Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush is apparently seeking out a conflict. According to CBS Sports, he took a swipe at New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis Tuesday evening. Said Bush:

What goes around comes around...They talked about all week about putting hot sauce and this and that, and they ended up losing their best player for the rest of the season.

Last week, Jets head coach Rex Ryan commented on the necessity to tackle Bush, saying the Jets need to put some "hot sauce" on him. Apparently, Bush's feelings were hurt by this.

Revis—one of most respected players around the league—tore his ACL in the game and is gone for the season. Most players have shown great respect in response to the injury, including former rival Randy Moss. Bush has decided to take another path.

Ironically, Bush does not exactly have a clean history himself. He is only a few years removed from one of the biggest scandals in USC college football history, which ultimately resulted in him losing his Heisman Trophy.

On the other hand, Revis has always been viewed as a clean and soft-spoken player. Bush is the first player to suggest that Revis did anything unclean in his Week 3 performance. There is nothing at all in the game film to suggest that he did.

It took Bush six years to finally start to build a name for himself in the NFL and become known for something other than NCAA corruption. One has to wonder if he is building the right name for himself now.
