Why Was Craig James Dropped So Quickly by Fox Sports Southwest?

Fox Sports Southwest announced a couple weeks back that former ESPN analyst and failed U.S. Senate candidate Craig James was joining its college football coverage this season. James appeared on the network on Saturday night. But it was just as quickly announced that would be James’ last appearance. According to, “the hire had not been fully vetted at the highest levels of Fox Sports management.”

What was it that gave Fox pause?

Is it because James said during his political campaign last year that gay people “will have to answer to the Lord for their actions“?

Is it because of his reportedly insatiable hunger for panda steak?

Or because of the persistent rumors (however unfounded, untrue, and warrantless) that Craig James killed five hookers at SMU?
