  • Odd placement of the note. I'd include it as real text in the lead/main article.
  • I moved the information from the note to the end the paragraph in the Background section.
  • "variously "Alabama", "UA" or "Bama"" is this necessary? It's interesting, but is it referenced?
  • Removed
  • "with being the person responsible" don't think you need "the person" here.
  • Removed "the person"
  • Could link "prep school".
  • Linked
  • Why is it called "1892 Alabama Cadets football team" and not "1892 Alabama Cadets football team season"?
  • "1891–1892" -> "1891–92" per WP:YEAR.
  • Fixed
  • "there that first played" that _he_ first...
  • Corrected
  • "his brother passed away" died.
  • Changed
  • "he enrolled at Alabama. After he enrolled" repetitive.
  • Reworded
  • Looks like there's a spare line at the bottom of the schedule table.
  • The spare line is part of the schedule template used. As this is such an early season, what would normally be listed here (time zone, homecoming, non-conference opponent) does not apply in this article.
  • I see one result ended 4–5. Can you explain the scoring at the time this was played?
  • There is a link to a note explaining this with the source citation in the Schedule section.
  • The "Drop kick" hash link isn't correct ("Drop kick#American_football)")
  • Fixed the link
  • Could consider adding an image or two down the right-hand side to brighten it up a little. I see some of the images in sub articles are PD...
  • Images added
  • Quarterbacks, guards, tackles etc, all jargon I'm afraid, especially for non-US/non-expert readers. Links?
  • All linked now
  • What is The Corolla and why should I care what it said about anything?
  • Added that The Corolla is the university yearbook to the prose
  • " team until Eli Abbott was" no need to relink it, and also no need to repeat first name.
  • Done
  • No need to relink Alabama here.
  • Done
  • We don't need (in English) for English-language sources, it's kind of assumed that since this is English language Wikipedia sources without a language parameter will be in English.
  • Done

It's in good shape, but pending the resolution of the above comments, I'll place it on hold for the moment. The Rambling Man (talk) 16:57, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
