  • Naming conventions for college football articles. Geologik (talk) 01:05, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose: "football" by itself means (1) the ball used in the game, (2) the game of football as a whole; to mean one particular team the word "team" should be kept. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 10:24, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Support: The main football article should follow the standards set by the college football wikiproject - ie. Michigan Wolverines football, Florida Gators football, Appalachian State Mountaineers football, Grand Valley State Lakers football, etc. Individual seasons follow the team format - ie. 2010 Florida Gators football team, 2008 Iowa Hawkeyes football team, etc. Really, this is a non-issue as these articles have always been moved uncontested. Not sure why the fuss now. Geologik (talk) 18:05, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Support: In accordance with Wikipedia:Article titles "Eastern Washington Eagles football" is preferable. It is "concise," "consistent," and ""precise." It is Concise because the word "team" is redundant. These articles are about more than just the team. They are about all the surrounds a college football program: facilities, traditions, and coaching. It is Consistent because as Geologik pointed out, all the other college programs use this shorter format. It is Precise because the shorter title is enough to identify the subject unambiguously. No one is seriously going to think that an article title "Easter Washington Eagles football" is going to be about one particular physical football as Anthony Appleyard suggests. It is clear from the title what the subject of the article is: the football program at Eastern Washington University. —Ute in DC (talk) 18:25, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Support - This name change would bring this article in line with the standard naming convention used across college sports articles. cmadler (talk) 18:44, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Support - Ute in DC is right, and the word "team" is usually only used in specific years, e.g. 2010 Eastern Washington Eagles football team. Nolelover It's football season! 19:14, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Support move. If you want to contest the naming conventions of college sports articles, that should be taken up separately with respect to the entire class of hundreds of such articles. Jweiss11 (talk) 20:38, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Support - As per Ute in DC, Jweiss11, cmadler, et al. DeFaultRyan 17:23, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Support matches standard layouts for other articles, makes for ease in finding--Paul McDonald (talk) 04:19, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
