Next to the arrival of my daughter, nothing will give me greater joy than the following - former Texas senate hopeful Mr. Craig James is returning to TV to call college football games.
This is such a major win for college football fans, it is only a shame that his audience will no longer be national but rather limited to Fox Sports Southwest telecasts. James previously served as an analyst for ESPN.
James will be paired with Erin Hartigan and former Dallas Cowboys great Tony Banks on as a studio analyst for Fox Sports Southwest. As much as you may not like this, his return was always on a matter of when not if. Few college football announcers have annoyed the masses at any greater frequency than Mr. Craig James.
To have him back is bittersweet - it's a major score for college football fans who need a reason to throw something at their TV, but a crushing loss to the 10 Texan who wanted to see him represent this great state in Congress.
