Conference Player of the Year article effort – progress updateEdit

It's been years since this project has had an update on CPOY articles. We've knocked out so many more dozens of player biographies since then, but we still have a good amount of work left. But hey, how do you climb to the top of a mountain? One step at a time. The following CPOY templates are complete: A-10, American South, ACC, America East, AAC, American West, Big 12, Big East, Big Eight, Big South, Big Ten, CAA, C-USA, Great Midwest, Great West, Horizon, Metro, Midwestern, MVC, Mountain West, Pac-12, Patriot, SEC, SoCon, SWAC, West Coast, WAC

Below are the number of articles needed to complete the rest:

Does anyone wish to volunteer to "adopt" one of these conference and then create one or two (or more, if inspired) corresponding CPOY articles? I'll adopt the American West, since I recently created that and I know I can knock out the only two needed. Thoughts? SportsGuy789 (talk) 23:43, 22 October 2021 (UTC)

I don't know about adopting any conferences, but I will try to create a few missing player of the year articles. Several weeks ago I created George Cale, who was the MEAC player of the year in 1987. I'll see what else I can dig up for other players. ~EDDY (talk/contribs)~ 22:28, 23 October 2021 (UTC)
Thanks Eddy. Whatever articles you might feel inspired to write, regardless of conference, please do! I knocked out one of two remaining for the American West (Ben Larson). SportsGuy789 (talk) 23:59, 25 October 2021 (UTC)

I have a couple on my radar that I can do from the OVC and MAC. Sorry, I don't have as much concentrated time to write articles as I once did so my pace has slowed considerably. Rikster2 (talk) 13:49, 27 October 2021 (UTC)

Neither do I, unfortunately. I hit spurts where I can make a couple, but then life gets in the way and then the most updating I can do again is drive-by stuff. I think a good, attainable goal would be to finish out American West, Gulf Star, and Southwest all before the end of 2021. SportsGuy789 (talk) 15:03, 28 October 2021 (UTC)
I recently created Thomas Terrell, a 2002 ASUN recipient. It's difficult to find sources for players' pro careers from 15 years ago and earlier. Like I can see "he played in Israel, France, Spain, Italy, etc" but it can be challenging to find the specific teams. That said, it should be reasonable to knock out the American West, Gulf Star, and Southwest by the end of the year. ~EDDY (talk/contribs)~ 01:08, 29 October 2021 (UTC)
Just finished the American West. SportsGuy789 (talk) 00:14, 1 November 2021 (UTC)
Nice. Just created Louis Dale, the most recent Ivy PoY without a page. ~EDDY (talk/contribs)~ 21:33, 5 November 2021 (UTC)
Recently created Anthony Winchester of the Sun Belt and Antoine Brockington of the MEAC. ~EDDY (talk/contribs)~ 02:44, 6 December 2021 (UTC)
David Patten of the Big Sky done. Might not be a bad idea to focus a little on the 21st century ones since sources are easier to find. Rikster2 (talk) 21:39, 14 December 2021 (UTC)
Kind of a different way to look at these, but for the 2007–08 season we are only missing 4 CPOYs - Thomas Sanders (basketball) (ASUN), Scott Cutley (Big West), Jamar Smith (basketball, born 1985) (MEAC) and Josh Alexander (basketball) (Southland). All seasons after that one are completed. Rikster2 (talk) 16:47, 19 December 2021 (UTC)
I like digging up the more historical players' information because of my access to newspapers.com. I'm not opposed to creating more recent players' articles of course, but the older guys' pro careers are done by now and so their infoboxes are usually complete. I haven't had nearly the free time I thought I'd have around the holidays to work on more creations, but come hell or high water I will try to get at least one more bio done before 2022.

Paige Bueckers FACEdit

I have nominated Paige Bueckers for featured article consideration, and would appreciate any comments at the FAC page. Sportzeditz (talk) 17:09, 5 January 2022 (UTC)

NCAA transfer portalEdit

An article on the NCAA transfer portal was long overdue. I took a shot at starting the article today, but it's an important topic and welcome any help in developing the topic further. Among other things, it would be good to include data on the number of athletes entering the portal each year. Cbl62 (talk) 01:27, 7 January 2022 (UTC)
