Copyedit[edit]

I'm the editor copyediting this piece. (Feedback enthusiastically encouraged!) I removed the copyedit and a couple of related tags at the outset to discourage other copyeditors from stepping on me while I do so. Another editor reverted those changes. I would like to make them again, but I don't do edit wars so I will hold off. I will add some comments as I go. Cheers. Lfstevens (talk) 03:52, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

If your done the go for it, if not complete the copy edit first then remove the tag.--Dcheagletalkcontribs 04:01, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
Copyedit complete. Comments:
  • Still way too much detail on the machinations and rumors assorted with membership. I gotta believe there is more to the conference than that and championships.
  • How does the conference compare to others in "power", # of sports, academic standards, attendance, # athletes.
  • I took out the sportsy writing ("chaos"), etc. that appeared to be some editor's opinion.

KSU Colors[edit]

There is an open question of whether KSU has one or two (more?) colors.          

The existing citation (pg 20): [1]

References "Official Kansas State University colors"

"Official Kansas State University colors The only color to be used for the logo mark is Pantone Color 268 or color build as shown below. All trademarked images may be displayed only in black, white and Kansas State University official purple (Pantone 268 or hex code #512888 for Web)."

and:

  • PMS 268 (purple)
  • WHITE
  • K/BLACK
  • 20 PERCENT K/BLACK
  • 40 PERCENT K/BLACK

Thoughts? UW Dawgs (talk) 17:31, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Well if K-State list only one color then thats what we should go by.--Dcheagletalkcontribs 19:03, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
I think it's clear that Kansas State University has only one school color, which is purple. The below citation states it clearly, and I've never seen any contrary language. I believe purple is the only color that should be included on this page's chart of school colors. Other schools' entries show only official colors – crimson and creme, crimson and blue, etc. – so it would be inconsistent to include any unofficial complimentary color for KSU's entry. (It's certainly rare to have only one school color, but Syracuse on the ACC page similarly shows only one color on the league chart. Harvard is another school with only one color.)
The school color Royal Purple was adopted in the fall of 1896 by a committee of "Miss Minnie L. Copeland, Jr. and Miss Winnifred Houghton and Miss Ina E. Holyrod, of the senior class, and perhaps one or more others." Although K-State’s only official color is purple, white has been used as a complimentary color for many years. Silver is also a common second or third color. Former head basketball coach Cotton Fitzsimmons incorprated gold during his two-year stint (1968-70), but gold or yellow has not been used since that time.[2] --Kgwo1972 (talk) 19:07, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

lacking a conference football champions article[edit]

FYI, this conference does not have a List of Big 12 Conference football champions article, as seen for many other FBS conferences in Category:Lists of college football conference champions. It would be much appreciated if anyone would like to take up the project and create this article. Cheers, UW Dawgs (talk) 15:07, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

I've got some free time coming up later this week, so I'll take a crack at then.--Dcheagletalkcontribs 19:20, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
I've put together a basic set of tables that lack sources (working on that next) take a look and let me know what you think (Link)..--Dcheagletalkcontribs 02:54, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
