This is article content masquerading as a navbox. Really not an effective use of navbox space. --woodensuperman 09:27, 14 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No transclusions. It may be able to be integrated into the articles which it links, but I am not sure how accurate or up-to-date the template is since the subject matter which this template represents is not something I am familiar. Steel1943 (talk) 16:23, 29 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This exists only to contradict MOS:COLHEAD and should be replaced with rows that have rowspans, not a row with colspans to make an internal header. ―Justin (koavf)TCM 04:17, 29 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Oppose; We can't just delete a template used as a core structure on nearly 7,000 articles. The reason it exist is also the wildly misrepresented by nominator. Instead, we should improve the existing template or create a new template to replace this one and its cousins (Template:CFB Yearly Record Start, etc).

  • Comment The only unique information presented by this template is the conference name the team is affiliated with for a given season. That could instead be placed in a dedicated column for the table (at {{CFB Yearly Record Start}}), and then have the conference name specified in each year's row entry. The table can also then be made sortable by columns if these irregular row headers are removed. {{CFB Yearly Record Subtotal}} rows being place in the middle of the related tables also seem to cause an accessibilty problem, again placing content mid-table that is not consistent with the column headers—namely, combining the year and team columns into a two-column row entry with just the team name for the subtotal.—Bagumba (talk) 02:16, 30 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Delete per nom. There is already a column that includes the team name and conference, and tenure is implied based on the year columns. This blatantly fails MOS:COLHEAD. –Aidan721 (talk) 14:28, 30 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Aidan721, There is no column for the name of the conference, only a column for the conference record. Without this template, the name of the conference would be lost. We'd also lose the display of team fight names and wiki-linkage to the program articles, which are distinct from year-specific team articles. MOS:COLHEAD is also not a policy. It's part of a tutorial that "is not one of Wikipedia's policies or guidelines, and may reflect varying levels of consensus and vetting." Jweiss11 (talk) 16:21, 30 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Arguing against accessibility is a weird stance to have. And the team fight name and wiki-linkage to the program articles are not necessary to the table. They are easily found elsewhere in the article. A column for the conference can very easily be added as well. –Aidan721 (talk) 19:57, 30 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Arguing in favor of the deletion of valid, important material from the visual display of the Wikipedia in the name of non-policy-based accessibility seems even weirder to me. Why you think team fight name is not necessary for these tables? They've been a standard part of these tables for over 15 years. Without them, how would you distinguish the Miami Hurricanes, as seen as Irl Tubbs, from the Miami Redskins/RedHawks, as seen as George Rider. Are you sure wiki-linkage to the program articles are not necessary to the table? What about when no relevant season-specific article exists yet for that program in the relevant date range, as in Lynn Hovland or J. Arthur Baird or hundreds of other examples. Such suggestions contravene long-established consensus concerning these tables. This nomination is premature and poorly conceived, as is this support for the nomination, which is unengaged with the relevant content. Jweiss11 (talk) 21:23, 30 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Oppose per JWeiss11. \\ Loksmythe // (talk) 20:47, 30 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Oppose I think all parties should agree on a suitable mock-up version first, then we can delete all five of the templates together. I know we don't HAVE to do it that way but I think it will be better not to rush things.   ~WikiOriginal-9~ (talk) 08:08, 1 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Comment Seems that WP:TFD doesn't provide any guidance for this scenario, where a template seems to need replacement, but the replacement solution does not yet exist. So we have this combative situation where one side is frustrated by the perception that the flawed status quo is acceptable, and another side is upset that outright deletion seems to be a disastrous possibility and miffed that this wasn't instead brought up informally before at a relevant talk page, where collaboration for a replacement might be more collegial.—Bagumba (talk) 08:39, 3 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Oppose / Keep for now, per Jweiss. BeanieFan11 (talk) 19:50, 7 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
