Former Southern Methodist tailback Craig James will file for a spot in the Republican primary for the United States Senate in Texas, according to Gromer Jeffers of the Dallas Morning News.

His son Adam James is currently a wide receiver for Tommy Tuberville at Texas Tech.

James was one half of the famed "Pony Express" at SMU, joining fellow top RB recruit Eric Dickerson in the Mustang backfield and leading SMU to a combined 29-5-1 record from 1980-1982. In James' final game as a Mustang, SMU beat Pittsburgh 7-3 in the Cotton Bowl to preserve an unbeaten 11-0-1 record.

After graduating from SMU, James played for two seasons in the doomed USFL with the Washington Generals before spending five seasons with the New England Patriots, rushing for 2,469 career yards and 11 career touchdowns and making the 1986 Pro Bowl. 

James retired from the Patriots after the 1988 season.

From a very reliable source in college football> James son had the talent for Div 2 football but Leach did James a favor and made a spot on the team for him. And that is how Dou**bag James repaid him?? So if James would become a Seantor he could then get the loser son a job he is not qualified for.

If James would make it to the gneral election(we all know he wont) but if all the other candidates die or something
I will be donating to his opponent. I dont care what party they are from, i dont care if they have been in prison for murder or if they juggle kittens for a hobby, they will be getting my $$  Just think if James becomes Senator James and he can get his loser son a job.

I'm a Republican and I certainly don't want this loser on any Republican ticket. He is a terrible human being.

Craig James is a dishonest POS. He is a biased hypocrit. He used his position to get Leach fired when his lil girl shouldn`t have been playing college football in the first place. But when you got paid to play at SMU, well the apple does not fall far from the tree. He runs down good players and good teams for no reason. His picks this year on his top 25 ballot were a proof that he is paid off. He is a horrible human. ESPN should be ashamed for hiring this criminal!!!!! Do us a favor and take Mark May and Robert Smith with you! One other thing, he should never be mentioned in the same catagory and/or sentence as Eric Dickerson. He couldn`t even hold up one of Eric`s socks,

I guess "know it all" James will hire Mike Leach as his campaign manager, to get back a bunch of votes he wants from TEXAS TECH fans. Sounds like he's got an uphill battle on becoming a Senator from the Great State of Texas, and just maybe he might be in a little over his head. Who knows about all the BULL in this one ??
