Clemson doesn't report its football team being a conf member in this year. Only one of four games involved possible conf members. And we've repeatedly seen that a school can be a conf member without one of its teams in a given sport being a member for a specific season. UW Dawgs (talk) 08:43, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Well, we haven't seen that for sure yet with SIAA or SAIAA schools; it's mentioned in the aub yearbook with the football coverage, and the bloody president of the SIAA at one point was W. M. Riggs. I trust a contemporary source more than the media guide. Cake (talk) 09:05, 14 December 2016 (UTC)
pg 200. What's your RS? UW Dawgs (talk) 16:12, 14 December 2016 (UTC)
The Glomerata, as linked in the article.... It's a contemporary source unlike the media guide citing nothing a century after the fact. Cake (talk) 07:34, 15 December 2016 (UTC)
It is so very apparent your source only remembered the years they were SIAA champions, not just in the SIAA, as I've stated multiple times now. Cake (talk) 07:36, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

addition of unsourced contentEdit

@MisterCake: Your edit asserts Clemson football is a member of the SIAA conference in 1898 and also reverts my tagged request for a Template:Better source. My citation of Clemson's 2016 Media Guide, pg 200 shows 1898 Clemson football was not part of SIAA or any other conference -contrast the 1898 visual treatment with 1900, 1901, 1938, 1953, and later years where the conference name and conference W-L-T record are explicity broken out.

Do you have a WP:RS which supports your change asserting 1898 Clemson football participation in SIAA? UW Dawgs (talk) 08:35, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

This has to mention football explicitly because...? Cake (talk) 10:14, 15 December 2016 (UTC)
Please produce a link to whatever source(s) you believe support your contested 1898 Clemson/SIAA edits so they can be reviewed. UW Dawgs (talk) 16:44, 15 December 2016 (UTC)
