Confirmed: Leach Accuser Is Son Of ESPN'S Craig James

Two of college football's weirdest personalities are on a legal collision course, as ESPN confirms the player accusing Mike Leach of abuse is Adam James, wide receiver for the Red Raiders and son of Craig James (yes, that Craig James):

A source close to the James family told Schad that Leach directed a trainer to confine him to an equipment room for three hours and, days later, told a trainer to place James in an electrical closet. An attorney for Leach said that while James was secluded twice, the circumstances were not as portrayed by the James family.

OK, so Leach locked an injured player in a room ... but not in a bad way? That clears everything right up, doesn't it?
