Fair use rationale for File:Sugar Bowl Logo.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

File:Sugar Bowl Logo.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Couple of interesting sources[edit]

I used the AP Poll for citing how USC/OU stayed at the top of the polls all season long, but if you want more, here are some credible sources about brewing problems for Auburn at the end of the season. --Bobak (talk) 17:59, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Pre-FAC review[edit]

I was asked on my talk page for my thoughts on this before it goes it FAC, and I will give a review similar to what you would see there:

  • "In the second quarter, another field goal resulted three points for the Tigers." Always watch out for missing words, just in case. :-) Another issue is the field goal; I think this should be mentioned by the first score. There are redundant earlys when in that sentence, so some work is needed there.
  • Virginia Tech: "the final game of their season that year" could be considered redundant due to "culminating with" preceding it.
  • "With late-season wins over perennial rival 16th ranked Virginia and fellow ACC newcomer ninth ranked Miami..." This could use a couple more commas for readibility.
  • Does the SEC Championship Game have its own article? If so, it wouldn't hurt to link it.
  • Pre-game buildup: The last two sentences of the first paragraph seem directly copied from the lead. A little variation would be nice.
  • Controversy: I'm a BCS-hater, so I will have a lot to say on this. First, please be careful with the title, because Controversy sections can be controversial themselves.
  • The last paragraph of the section is partially inaccurate and should be removed. The true tipping point was the Cal-Texas controversy, where Mack Brown successfully appealed to voters to move them up in the rankings after the team's final game, in effect gaming the system. The reference provided says as much.
  • "Some pundits and fans considered Auburn's slight to stem from..." I'm not sure this works grammatically, and slight is more than a little POV. This system forced three teams to vie for two spots; someone was always going to be left out.
  • "tougher conference schedule when compared to the conference schedules of USC and Oklahoma." Try "tougher conference schedule when compared to those of USC and Oklahoma."
  • Offensive matchups: Jason Campbell's first name doesn't need to be repeated with the running backs. Cedric Humes also doesn't need his first name twice.
  • Italics for the Roanoke Times, which could be The Roanoke Times. Why pipe a link if you don't need to?
  • Can this stubby paragraph about a Tech lineman be moved?
  • Perhaps link the 2000 Sugar Bowl?

I think that should be plenty for now. If/when this reaches FAC, I will definitely review it further. Giants2008 (17-14) 20:27, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
