Michael Felder, B/R's Lead college football analyst, is one of the world's few 29-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. Michael has appeared on Fox Sports Live and contributed as a college football analyst to radio shows from NYC to LA.Follow

Whether working as a blogger, freelancer, editor, Lead Writer, video analyst or host, Josh Zerkle’s takes on the world of sports are unmistakable. Josh will settle in to co-host Bleacher Report Radio’s morning show, along with Dan Levy. He joined Bleacher Report as one of the five original Lead Writers, along with Dan, in 2011.
Josh’s work is primarily opinion-based commentary on current sports news. Sometimes contrarian, sometimes off-color, Josh is always entertaining. Although he has described his writing voice as that of “the deranged uncle at the end of the sports bar,” the tone of his work depends largely on the outlet for which he is producing, whether it’s writing for the NFL blog at WashingtonPost.com, or editing the sports site on the Uproxx network formerly known as With Leather.
He also co-hosted the 2013 video productions of B/R Fantasy Live, a weekly last-minute fantasy football show with Anita Marks, and Draft Bash ’13, B/R’s live coverage of the 2013 NFL Draft with Aaron Nagler, Matt Miller and Michael Felder. Josh has also covered two Super Bowls, a Final Four, and everything in between, from the main event at the 2010 World Series of Poker to a 2009 pole dancing competition.
Josh is sometimes recognized by his large bald head (he wears a size 7-3/4 cap) and short, manicured goatee. He holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from Ohio State. He currently lives in the greater Atlanta area. Follow him on Facebook at facebook.com/JoshZerkleNFL.
