Michael Felder is one of the world's few 28 year old curmudgeons. He subscribes to the pro style offense, believes wholeheartedly that defense wins championships and was raised on the mantra "film don't lie." The former defensive back truly enjoys the minutiae of film, doesn't share everyone else's zeal for stats and doesn't live on the pro-playoff side of the college football world. In addition to running InTheBleachers.net Michael has had work appear on Scout.com and contributed as a CFB analyst to radio shows from Raleigh to Houston.
Please rewrite your article "Why the Creep in Stadium Expansion?" with actual facts. You clearly didn't even bother researching Kyle Field's Expansion/Renovation. I'm shocked that Bleacher Report published this nonsense.
So that "Why the Creep in Stadium Expansion?" article....probably best to do some research and reconsider your whole premise there bud. You specifically made the entire article built around the fact that A&M was only adding 20,000 cheap seats while everyone else was adding facilities, amenities and luxury boxes...hate the tell ya but A&M is doing all that and considerably more. Go to kylefield.com, actually research, watch the video, read the facts, and rewrite the article. Terribly irresponsible piece you wrote there, and it seems by reading through your other articles, it's not the first time you've written pointed articles at or about A&M that were completely unfounded. Stick to what you know because A&M is clearly outside your comfort zone.
As a professional with a Masters Degree and knowledge of the Kansas State University football program I am some what surprised at the lack of research you did in your article on Bill Snyder's CFB Remarks Are Disingenuous.
Everything you mentioned from Academic All- Americans of Athletes to Giving Back to the University. Coach Snyder has donated millions of dollars into the renovation of the KSU Library and local and state charities.
I am not sure what college or university you went to but please go back and take basic research and statistical classes so you can learn how to produce a good fundamental article. This article really hurt your writing and research skills as a sports writer.
Could you please write an article explaining what a greyshirt is in CFB? Thanks
Nice chalkboard piece on A&M, except Thomas Johnson is no longer on the team. He dropped out of school after the Alabama game, and he has not returned, nor is he expected to do so. It's very odd that you would miss that.
I certainly enjoy reading your articles and appreciate your insights, Mr. Felder...I look forward to more!
Love reading your articles! keep it up!
Where did you play defensive back? Did you go pro?
Well agree to disagree on most of those points, except for the JuCo transfer point. If it really was the case that Snyder was playing a different game, and other coaches "aren't allowed" to have that many JuCo players, do you really think that Snyder would be the only coach doing it? JuCo players are the same as any other player; their time playing JuCo ball counts against their elligibility the same as if they had been playing anywhere else and they have to keep the same grades as all the other players too. Snyder has consistantly done more with less throughout his tenure, and if that doesn't qualify someone as a great coach, i don't know what does.
Bill Snyder good coach not great? Are you just trolling or are you willfully ignorant of what you're talking about? Plus, K-State has one (if not the) best defense in the big 12 and you still think the Fiesta bowl is gonna be some shootout with no D? I look forward to you not even acknowledging all the crow that will be served to you Jan 3rd.
