    So many smart-ass things I can say. But I'll let it go:

    If it gets him off ESPN I hope he wins.

    Isn't the issue of whether he received improper benefits at SMU going to come up if he stuns everyone and garners the nomination? He smirked his way through the Pony Express 30 for 30 when the issue came up.

    1. He's not getting the nomination.
    2. The hope is he says something so stupid/inflammatory during the campaign, ESPN won't be able to take him back. I'd say that's a pretty good bet for us football fans.

    I'd say it's a pretty good bet if you are running for the Senate in Texas - especially the GOP primary.
    Whatever happened to Lynn Swann?
    You run. You're done.

    Was hoping this was Rick James announcing a run.

    In what probably isn't coincidence, someone created a fake Sherwood Blount Jr. Twitter account.

    If James can convince anyone that a longtime business associate of his spread money all around the SMU program and Craig never got a taste - he deserves to win.
