Sources[edit]

Since this page only has one short paragraph of text, which is properly cited, exactly what is referred to by the "lack of sources" tag on the front page? Since I can't see anything requiring sources, whoever tagged it should say something about it here, or I'm going to remove it in a couple days. BigKennyK 18:42, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Since the presence of this box has gone unclarified, I have removed it. BigKennyK 23:54, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Quinnipiac[edit]

Quinnipiac hasn't been an associate member in lacrosse for a couple seasons now. How do we remove them from the AEC directory box? BigKennyK 16:11, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

I figured it out, Quinnipiac has been removed. BigKennyK 17:52, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

School type/religious affiliation[edit]

The religious affiliation or designation as "non-sectarian" is not so clear cut. For example, Duke University describes its ties with Methodism as "formal, on-going, and symbolic" [11] while Wake Forest University maintains "a dedication to the values rooted in its Baptist heritage" [12]. Both schools can be considered "non-sectarian" in that they are no longer under the direct auspices of their founding religious organizations. Likewise, Boston College maintains its Jesuit identity in spite of the fact that it severed its formal ties with the Jesuit Order (and thereby the Catholic Church) in the 1960s when it was independently incorporated under a lay board of trustees. Unlike the Catholic University of America, which is under the direct auspices of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, or the University of Notre Dame, which is governed by "fellows" who must be priests of the Congregation of Holy Cross, The Trustees of Boston College (BC's governing body) operate independent of any religious jurisdiction. This arrangement is probably similar to that at Duke or Wake Forest, except that the BC trustees have voluntarily chosen to elect members of the founding religious organization to the presidency (though they are not required to do so). In fact, similar arrangements exist at other Jesuit colleges and universities, where both women and non-clerics have been elected to presidency (most recently at Georgetown University). All of this is to say that I think the nature of a school's religious affiliation is beyond the scope of this article, and that "public" or "private" suffice in the context of the members table. --24.63.125.78 10:22, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

24.63.125.78 has coppied and pasted this on almost every college conference discussion board. Please refer to Talk:Atlantic Coast Conference so we can keep all the discussion in one place. Thanks. -- Masonpatriot

Logos[edit]

There is a discussion to clarify our policy/guideline on the use of sports team logos. Please see Wikipedia_talk:Logos#Clarification_on_use_of_sports_team_logos if you wish to participate in the discussion. Johntex\talk 16:44, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Proposal to make timelines more consistent[edit]

I noticed that conferences in List of NCAA conferences have articles, usually including a membership timeline. While some of the decisions made for each conference make some sense, there is a wide variety of styles for the various timelines, particularly involving color choices, but also other matters of style that could be more consistent.

for example, a school with a yellow bar means:

  • An associate member in one sport (if part of the BE)
  • A former member of the conference (in the SEC)
  • A future member of the conference (in the SEC and Big West)
  • A football only member (in the Sun Belt)
  • A team that has moved to another conference (in the WAC, NEC)
  • A full member of the Big Sky


Some graphs have captions, some do not, and none are centered. To see the variety of styles, review Current conference timelines

I think it would be worth discussing how best to provide some measure of consistency, recognizing that there may be legitimate reasons for some differences from a standard presentation (for example, some conferences show the name of the new conference for former members. In some cases, this makes sense, in other, it may not.)

I've produced a draft of how the timelines would look with some consistency added. Please see Draft proposal of conference timelines.

I propose a discussion to see if there is consensus on improving the consistency.

Because it would not be practical to have this discussion on each and every conference talk page, I suggest centralizing this discussion at the Talk page of Project College football SPhilbrick(Talk) 12:46, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Standardize facility sections[edit]

Discussion about overview maps for US collegiate athletic conferences[edit]

A discussion on the Project College Football talk page has been created to discuss the proper format of the overview maps that are used for the US collegiate athletic conference pages.

Additional nickname[edit]

Just wondering, does this term "AmEast" considered as an additional nickname for the America East Conference? jlog3000 (talk) 20:04, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
