@ARamspacher
Frank Martin says everyone is on board with Felder returning to school, but "I have made the decision for Rakym not to play this year." "He is eligible to play, but I chose not to play him."

He will return to the university, but he will not return to the basketball team this season.

It has been announced that Felder will return for the Spring semester. Frank will redshirt him and he will NOT play this season. I don't know if he will even be allowed to practice with the team this season. But, he is back, and I expect he will be on the team at some point.

Welp.. good for next year I guess.

Might as well close it up for 2018. Looks like predictions will be true on where we end up in the SEC. Just too much inconsistency and inexperience.

Just seems like a waste for these JUCO guys to come in and basically float a .500 season.

While it sucks athletically, this decison by Frank makes me a proud alumni.
It shows he is more than just basketball.

Felder made a mistake, and he is fortunate to be back with the team.

And to be honest, Felder is not in shape, and won't be in shape by February at the earliest, and by that point this team will likely be out of a dance card situation.

Transition year. Let the young players get some stripes on their sleeve. Keep focused and keep fighting for wins, but I think even Frank knows this team does not have IT.

Default Re: Felder's return

Wow, I definitely respect Frank Martin's decision. Also I think some of y'all are giving Felder too much credit, in that his return would have automatically solve all our problems. The most important part of the season starts in the coming weeks and I truly believe that our team this year can still do well if we can figure out our roles as a team soon. If we do, then everyone better look out, because we can really make so noise this year.

He may not have been able to have made much of contribution this late in the year. By the time he was back in game shape and in the flow of things, it probably would have taken until February.

I agree. CFM knows a lot more about this situation than any of us.

We don't have any 'JUCO guys' - we have 2 grad transfers. Booker is playing 10 minutes more than he did last year at FAU of all places, and has greatly improved whatever stock he has. He's been good, consistent, and gets to play near his hometown. I doubt that Myers is missing the trainwreck that is Maine basketball (3-11), but I'm still waiting for him to take a step up here. He has gotten more minutes and looked better vs. Clemson and Limestone, so maybe good things are coming.

JUCO, grad transfers... my point was they won't be here next year and can't provide enough to overcome the losses.

They are playing on a .500 team. I'm hopeful they can make a little run here, but not likely with our inconsistent and terrible point guard play.

Also, I'm not against his decision, just sucks we can't benefit this year.

Regardless of time missed, he would boost that position immediately.

Yeah, I think the one takeaway from the early season games is that Gravett is not ready to be the main PG. That leaves some combination of Myers and Holden (when healthy) with Gravett as back-up.

I also think that Beatty will get a look. That is a lot of "lead" type guards and no true points, which is why everyone wanted Rah back.

We will be fine. Let Myers start, then give Holden a chance to beat him out when he can go full speed, keep using Gravett in reserve. Point Guard by committee, we will be fine.

Next year is Gravett, Holden and Rah.

It is good Felder is back in school. It is bad that he can't play this season. I hope he can keep his record clean from here on out.

Next season Felder should be in the mix at PG. I don't like it that he will now be in the same class as Beatty, Minaya, etc. That make six guys in that class, which is too many. But, someone might transfer (I hope not). Having basically half the team in one class is not a good thing and something that should be avoided if possible.

Default Re: Felder's return

There's basically two schools of thought on what to do about him:

1. Take him back, let him play until he screws up again, and then throw him under the bus after we have used him up. There are plenty of other programs that do stuff like this.

2. Or do what Frank did: Take the high road and give him a chance at success in life after basketball.

We're going to do much better than people think this season, too.

Maybe you have not paid attention to the transfers and grad players that have really helped Dawn's team and many other teams. Booker is a great addition to Frank's team, so would Holden if he can ever get healthy. Also look for Myers to help this team.

Another great example is the Clemson team as they are loaded with transfers and have the best team they have had in years. In short, I completely disagree with you.
