    I cannot believe that after what his family has gone through, the unbearable acts that were committed against his son, what his family has gone through, he is able to broadcast this game. What toughness and determination.:jimlad:


    I wish Jessie Palmer would lay into him.

    Craig James is a scumbag. Always has been... always will be.

    He got SMU put on the death penalty when he was a player there by accepting cash, and now, by nearly all accounts, his son is a total whiny, crybaby, loser. Like father like son I guess?

    Pretty interesting what some assistant coaches and players that have played with Craig's son have to say about him. Not good.

    Leach was royally screwed over, but I love it because it should benefit us.

    Fowler had to hold back as you could tell he wanted to say something. Espn should pull him off the air until this whole thing blows over.

    Better yet, ESPN should hire Leach to do commentary with James!

    I feel sorry for Chris Fowler and Jesse Palmer. JP has actually become a fair, good analysts and has to work with a little ***** like James.

    First, check this out
    E-mails in support of Mike Leach - CBSSports.com

    Second I would love to see Mike Leach in the both or studio. that would bes the best TV you have ever seen. Better than Barkley, better than Knight.

    I wish Fowler would have com on and said "Mike Leach out today as coach of Texas Tech due to some ***** ******** about being sent into a pretty decent size garage during practice.Back to you James."

    Wow, those emails were great. That AD better get his resume updated, he is going to be out of a job soon! Maybe the new AD will bring Leach back.

    What the hell was that cheesy piano lounge music while Bruce Feldman did his piece on talking to Leach? It was like a Lifetime drama, or something.

    Mark May and Holtz were just as bad, blaming Leach.

    Did he die or get fired? I wasn't sure from the music in that piece.

    I'm guessing that is the company line, supporting their guy. They weren't as one sided yesterday.

    Considering James' own personal actions while in college is one of the major antagonists in getting SMU the death penalty, probably the single reason why they're not in the Big 12 right now and definitely a reason why this year was their first bowl game in some 25 years, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that James is about the last person that gets the privilege to be a morality barometer.

    My first thought was that it came off like they were doing the "cry me a river" type thing.

    Probably only could've been worse if it were cheesy violin music.

    Hey, I was almost tearing up during that. "Cheesy" my ***...


    But seriously, that did seem incredibly over dramatic.
