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.
So... we're all on the same page now... Auburn is the best 1 loss team...?
I appreciate your style of journalism. Your're taking the viewpoint of a former athlete and delivering so that a casual and devoted fan can ingest and porcessit easily.
Michael; when I read the title to your article I thought I was going to hear another sports writer talk about the Ohio State Schedule and the dominance of the SEC. Thank you for writing an article that doesn't follow the bias of how unbelievable Alabama is and how over rated Ohio State is. Few sports writer investigate and run comparisons but if they did they would all agree that the SEC has been the best conference over the last 7 years. But, if they looked at this year the comparisons would show Alabama is still very good but beatable by Florida State and others. Your evealuation is true, there will be no blowout in the national championship game no matter if it is Any of the top 3 involved. There is not a Norte Dame in that group this year and regardless of how the SEC bias is laced through the sports media the SEC consists of Alabama, 4 other better than average teams, 5 really bad teams and the rest. The ACC has Florida State, 1 other better than average team and the rest, the Big 10 has Ohio State, 2 Better than average teams, 2 really bad teams, and the rest average or a little below. The issue is there in no conference that is totally going to dominate this year and the national championship will actually be a fun game to watch. I believe it will be Alabama and FSU.
Ha Baylor plays no defense....
QUIT DOUBTIN THE DUCKS BEFORE YOU LOOK STUPID AND BIASED MY FRIEND :) TRY WATCHIN A GAME OBJECTIVELY THEN TELL ME HOW STANFORD EVEN STANDS A CHANCE! WE ARE GOING TO ANNIHILATE STANFORD JUST LIKE WE HAVE BEEN SINCE 2009. LAST YEAR WAS A FLUKE AND Y'ALL GONNA SEE THAT THURSDAY NIGHT!
Ok this is taking it to far this Mami sucks situation to far. I do not care if you guys do not respect whet the U has done this year but I am going to be frank, look into them and watch them play, your respect will be right. Right now you are just assuming stupid shit, so please do not write what you do not know. Gosh just shut up man!
Why do you Hate Michigan? Get your bias outta here dude!!!
Nice job picking Michigan to lose.
Michigan losing 4 games? really? Can you tell me what four. While ND played against a MICHIGAN lead by Robinson, it was clearly different than playing against Gardner. You simply have no clue. Michigan wins 10 games this year if not 11, and you only show how much you do not know!
Maybe...an article on UGA's inability to beat ranked teams?
