MU Colors[edit]

MU's colors are black and MU gold, not black and old gold as stated on the page. See the MU Office of Publications and Alumni Communication for more information. 208.141.107.44 16:44, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Removal of information[edit]

I changed some things on this page that were not accurate, and added some new things, but they were taken off immediately. I am wondering why?

Homecoming[edit]

I know homecoming is a sensitive subject and I think the conclusion we came to a few months back on the Homecoming page works well. Several schools claim to have held the first homecoming. we avoided saying anyone held homecoming on certain dates as the use of the word is obviously POV. The Trivial Pursuit, Jeopardy, and NCAA citation is in the Columbia Missourian reference. Grey Wanderer | Talk 21:10, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

Sorry I should be more specific, replying to "That Illinois held a homecoming game on Oct 15, 1910 is not in question, only if it should be considered first." What is in question is if it should be called a homecoming game. If you call it that with out any question then it was obviously first. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Grey Wanderer (talkcontribs) 2007-07-03 16:15:41
I certainly am not trying to start an edit war.. I detest them. And I do see that there are several conflicting claims. However, where dates for given games that were called homecoming at the time can be adequately supported by citations, those dates are clearly not mere claims but actual facts. The question of if they qualify as the game that started the homecoming tradition is entirely separate and not likely to be resolved easily. I see now that the newspaper article does contain the language about the NCAA, etc... it'd be nice to find additional support for them if possible. -- Upholder 21:17, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

I guess its really a conflict about the meaning of the word homecoming. I'm pretty sure Illinois had the actual first game called "homecoming" but when the word homecoming is used it means homecoming as we know it today. Thats why the homecoming article says homecoming-like celebrations. If you want to change the wording to something like Illinois held a non-annual game called homecoming in....... I would have no problem with that. Thanks for talking, not everyone does Grey Wanderer | Talk 21:23, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

If you check the PDF reference I provided, you will see that Item 200 talks about "first annual" homecoming program. It was previously claimed to be every year since 1910, but there was one homecoming cancelled due to a flu epidemic in 1918 (this is discussed in detail). Baylor's Home-coming (as it was called in 1909) was not an annual affair, as their 2nd was not until 1915. I'd very much like to come to a reasonable wording that is generally agreeable. -- Upholder 21:33, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

As an aside, perhaps this discussion is better suited for Talk:Homecoming with a link back to this discussion? -- Upholder 21:35, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

Don Faurot[edit]

I am editing the Don Faurot item to state that the football FIELD is named for him, not the stadium, which is separately named Memorial Stadium. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.88.64.222 (talk) 15:12, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

Civil War in 1854?[edit]

The first paragraph states that the Tigers defended Columbia against Confederate guerrillas during the Civil War in 1854. The Civil War was from 1861-1865. It should say "Civil War period" or "Civil War era." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.143.122.209 (talk) 02:29, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

[edit]

I was under the impression that the tiger head in the oval shape is now the primary mark used for Mizzou athletics. If so, someone should change the logo on the article. I don't want to do it yet though because I'm not 100% sure. Anyone who can confirm or deny this? BlueGold73 (talk) 03:53, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

It's on the official athletics site so I wouldn't hold back on uploading it. →Wordbuilder (talk) 04:16, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
Does anyone know why the athletics logo was changed back to the "M" with the tiger head in it. The primary athletic logo, as seen on playing surfaces, uniforms, marketing materials, and television is still the tiger head inside the oval. BlueGold73 (talk) 23:04, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
The tiger head in the oval shape is still the "preferred athletic mark".....Sometimes, universities use multiple logos depending upon the aim. They pay a certain amount of money to a marketing firm and get to keep all the associated efforts. Link: http://licensing.missouri.edu/logos/ .... Sometimes, universities have difficulty reproducing a logo, so they may have other ones which have more flare/more gloss, etc..Obamafan70 (talk) 12:41, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Big 12 WikiProject[edit]

I'm trying to gauge the interested in created a Big 12 WikiProject and wondering who would like to be involved. There are already pages for WikiProject Big Ten and WikiProject ACC. A Big 12 project would cover the schools themselves and anything to do with conference sports including: events, rivalries, teams, seasons, championships and lore. There is already quite a bit of activity here on Wikipedia regarding the Big 12, and I think a project could help coordinate and unify our efforts. Please see Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Proposals/Big 12 if you are interested, and add your name to the list. Grey Wanderer (talk) 00:29, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Big 12 was a new conference[edit]

The third introductory paragraph makes it sound like the Big 12 is simply an expansion and continuation of the Missouri Valley- Big 6,7,8 Conference. However the Big 12 article states that the Big 12 considers itself to be a totally new conference and does not consider the history of either the Big 8 nor for the matter, the SWC, as part of their history. This should be cleared up and all relevant articles aligned accordingly. Wschart (talk) 16:21, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
