Craig James: the Most Hated Man in college sports?

Last week, Fox Sports Southwest made the curious move of hiring the alleged murderer of five prostitutes, failed Senate candidate and the most hated man in West Texas: Jesse Craig James. It must be assumed multiple sentient people were involved in the hiring and Fox Sports Southwest doesn't run any background checks.

James appeared on the network's college football studio show this weekend, even though his contract was not officially finalized. That's what Fox Sports management is saying anyway, because once they got word of James hiring, they buried James faster than he allegedly buried one of those five slain prostitutes. Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated was the first to report:

SI.com has learned that the veteran broadcaster will no longer appear on the network. Fox Sports executives were not happy with the hire by the regional network, according to sources, and the hire had not been fully vetted at the highest levels of Fox Sports management. A formal agreement had not been finalized, even though James appeared on FSS on Saturday night. "Craig James will not be making any further appearances on Fox Sports Southwest's football coverage this season," said a Fox Sports spokesperson, when asked for a comment.

We at Eleven Warriors would like to say Craig James is an upstanding citizen, and we wish him the best in all future endeavors, but then we would be lying through our teeth. #RIP5DeadHookers

It was Mike Leach's fault.

Hey, I'm in the heart of WASSU (Wash St. territory) and that was pretty funny.  I shall pass that along.
Interestingly, only about 80% here are still Leach supporters.  They think this dismal team from 2 years ago (like 8 wins in 3 years) should have been bowl bound last year because Leach got his 1st year here.   If you thought tOSU fans are delusional you should hear a bit of some of the irrational Cougar fans.  Add to that, Leach , being Leach, told it like it was which pissed off even more people.   I actually called in to a cougar (never did it before or since) talk radio show to remind them that Urban called his team a "clown show" and then we went 12-0.  It shut the haters up from that point but only for the remaining hour.

Between "The Hooker Butcher", and that picture, I might pass out from laughing.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

I heard that Mark May killed SIX hookers while at Pitt, he did it to get their underwear, which he proudly wears to this day, as serial killers are known to collect trophies from their victims!

I didn't realize how far Craig James has fallen.  I always thought he did a great job on CBS for college football.  This "killing hookers" thing is bizarre!

I don't know anything about this guy. I clicked the link and it said that there is a rumor going around that he killed 5 hookers. He got a coach fired. He is a failed politician. And most ppl dislike him. He must be a SCum grad.
