Chasing the players[edit]

There is a photo on this pages with the caption 'Former football head coach Greg Robinson "chases" the last of his players onto the field before the kickoff of his inaugural 2005 season.' Why is the word "chases" in quotation? He is actually chasing them. - Mdriver1981 (talk) 19:51, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

All Americans[edit]

Cuse has had 42 All Americans. The infobox syntax allows for links to players' articles, but 42 people is obv. too many to link. Should we just leave the number, or include some players based on certain criteria?Darry2385 (talk) 12:15, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Don't forget to sign your comments. As far as the infobox, the way I have seen it done on other college football pages is just to list the number. I would check out a few other team football pages if you need examples to look at. Hope this helps! Cardsplayer4life (talk) 00:32, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Split tag[edit]

Is there a notability criteria for having separate lists of results like this? I would have thought a college team would not be notable enough to warrant a separate article. Op47 (talk) 23:22, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

Venues?[edit]

Q. Where did the Orangemen play football prior to construction of Archbold Stadium? Thanks, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 16:37, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

A. "The Oval", on SU's campus, according to this article. Regards, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 17:35, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
Q. Anyone have a photo of "The Oval"? Thanks, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 22:54, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
A. Got one, courtesy of SU Archives. Kind regards, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 23:35, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

Football rivalries (updates needed)[edit]

At least a couple of updates are needed to the 'Football rivalries' section:

  • New subsection needed on SU's rivalry with Colgate - longer than any other (see 'Early history' section and footnote).
  • Subsection on Penn State rivalry needs to be updated to include their 2013 game.
  • Series totals may need updating.
