Is this really defining? SportsGuy789 (talk) 06:35, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

I think not. Ostealthy (talk) 15:29, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

South Atlantic Intercollegiate Athletic Association standings templatesEdit

CFB warehouse had these standings from 1907 on, but it seems the conference did not begin until 1912, and that from 1907-1911 these were independent South Atlantic regional (i. e. Virginia and North Carolina, and Maryland and DC sometimes) titles. The 1907 to 1911 templates should be deleted. The All Southern teams show starting in 1902 and through 1905 there was something of a changing of the guard in Southern football power from the South Atlantic schools (basically the ACC, with the exceptions like FSU and Clemson and Georgia Tech) to the Deep South ones (basically the SEC, minus Mizzou and aTm and Arkansas). In 1897 UVA and Vanderbilt tied. Nobody wanted 1906 Vanderbilt. Thus, it seems, 1905 VPI was a Southern champ, but 1907 NC State was only a South Atlantic champ, and this was confused for a conference title. The Southeast champion seems to be the Southern champion after that. Not so unlike today with those who prefer SEC to ACC scheduling, etc. Cake (talk) 01:08, 24 February 2020 (UTC)

Articles for deletion: independents football standings listsEdit

Per the restructuring of the independent college football record templates by geographical region, I have nominated List of Division I FBS independents football standings (1869–1905) and List of Division I FBS independents football standings (1906–1955) for deletion. Please see the discussion at here. Thanks, Jweiss11 (talk) 22:51, 12 March 2020 (UTC)

PROD of former Villanova co-head coachEdit

There is a PROD placed on Timothy O'Rourke, who was the co-head coach for Villanova football in 1902. I am unable to find sources outside of a couple passing mentions that merely state he was their coach. Eagles 24/7 (C) 14:14, 15 March 2020 (UTC)

FWIW, I added contemporary sourcing to the article indicating the O'Rourke was the team captain (rather than co-head coach) and Richard Kelly was the head coach of the 1902 Villanova team. Cbl62 (talk) 19:37, 15 March 2020 (UTC)
I removed the PROD here. Should be taken to AfD. Jweiss11 (talk) 20:28, 15 March 2020 (UTC)
