    I have no ill will against James. This however furthers my belief that family members or really close friends posting on fan sites very rarely ends well. Capello made an *** of his kid. I hope James has a successful college career in Ohio closer to home (something Justin Hamilton could learn the meaning of).

    I guess didn't realize we were calling out the players' parents now too. Not cool.

    It's probably better for them all... The way his family posted and fretted about this stuff was unhealthy.

    Good luck James. Never would have guessed he would have scored more TDs in a career than Bo Williams.

    Exactly. There's a reason why athlete's parents posting on a message board (or at least being open about their identity while they do it) is the exception not the rule.

    IMO, they worried too much about what other people thought, and that's confirmed by the way they posted.

    Other family members of other players usually come on here and are like "we had a great time, you are great fans, etc", but his family came on here with an axe to grind, IMO.

    Re: Capello Transfering...

    I'm sorry to hear this. I really liked James' attitude and work ethic. Good luck to him. I hope his family continues to visit the board and lets us know how he is doing.

    Re: Capello Transfering...

    Good luck to James. He gave it his best shot and represented ISU well. I can fully understand his desire to transfer and wish him well wherever he goes. James did things the right way. He stuck it out through Spring ball and decided it was best to transfer at this time. Phil Bates did it the wrong way. Bates decided to quit the team during the season. Big difference IMO.

    That's your opinion. I don't recall him guaranteeing his kid was ever going to be an all-american, or even the starter. He said his kid was willing to work hard and wanted to be on the field and I don't see that as being inflamatory in any way. Like I said, it didn't work out and I wish James and his family well.

    There are plenty of people that should step away from the keyboard from time to time....that club isn't exclusive to family and friends of players.
