Oregon[edit]

Hi, Oregon is the Pac-12 North Division Co-Champion with Stanford, because both will end with a 7–2 conference record. However, because Oregon lost to Stanford, Stanford goes to the Championship Game. Oregon is still North Co-Champion, though.
Cheers, BenYes? 00:01, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

That is actually not the case, the Pac-12 has made their rules so that there are no co-anythings, they have a motto of One Game. One Champion. Rules for tie-breaking procedures can be found at this link http://static.pac-12.com/sports/football/championship/index.html, and nowhere in the rules does it mention a Divisional Co-Champion, they simply do not exist, by design.

Athies22 (talk) 00:06, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

I'm not sure this is correct. Look at the 2013 Pac-12 Media Guide, page 19 for the Ducks' 2012 season summary. At the top of the "2012 Results" table, they show Oregon as having been tied for 1st in the Pac-12 North. Then on page 34, they have a footnote that says that based on tiebreakers, Stanford was the North division representative. So I'm not sure it's as definite as all that. The conference seems to be saying that yes, the teams are tied, but there is a procedure that breaks the tie. --Esprqii (talk) 20:10, 11 December 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the clarification as far as the tie goes, I'll admit I'm wrong there, I just sent a media request to the Pac-12 to clarify if that means they are considered Co-Champions. Athies22 (talk) 06:38, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
It's great to find editors who are willing to defer to cited material rather than what they think things should be. Though to be honest, the Pac-12 is not particularly consistent about how they list these things. For example, in our other edit discussion with Template:2012 Pacific-12 football standings, as you note, they do list Oregon on top; but compare that to Template:2002 Pacific-10 football standings in which Washington State (which won the tiebreaker with USC) is listed first both on the template and in the Pac-12 media guide, even though USC is tied with them, has a better overall record, and comes first alphabetically. Same thing with Template:1992 Pacific-10 football standings. And then there are situations like Template:1935 PCC football standings where teams were tied and the Rose Bowl invite was totally arbitrary. Bottom line is that while I agree we have to defer to "official" material, we should keep in mind that those listings are inconsistent as well. Might be another thing to ask them about if they respond to your request. --Esprqii (talk) 18:15, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

Pac-12 2011 title[edit]

Ted Miller of ESPN.com reported " ... from Pac-12 spokesman Dave Hirsch on whether USC can claim the South championship: "USC can not own that title. USC can say that it finished first, but not champion. Our division champions participate in the championship game, so UCLA will be considered champion, or co-champions should it finish tied with ASU." Ucla90024 (talk) 22:03, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for finding that, I've been looking for clarification on ties for first and co-champions vs champions for a month now. Athies22 (talk) 22:10, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

2013 Pacific-12 Conference football season[edit]

Why did you remove the draft table from 2013 Pacific-12 Conference football season?--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 20:58, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

I didn't remove it, I added it. The reason for adding it is to display the Pac-12 players from the 2013 season who were drafted for historical purposes. Athies22 (talk) 04:00, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
I guess you accidentally removed the summary table. See 2013_Big_Ten_Conference_football_season#2014_NFL_Draft. I will restore it. You may or may not want to do what I am doing with the Big Ten, which is just copying templates from the draft page.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 04:10, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
I see what you mean now, I removed it because I thought it was a misplaced attendance tracker based on the color scheme, but you're right it should stay on there.Athies22 (talk) 04:15, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Oregon Ducks football[edit]

You still haven't given a reason why you reverted the first time. Now, you revert 100+ lines of changes because of one win. What, you are too lazy to update the one win? You spending 30 seconds or me spending another hour, egads. Bgwhite (talk) 23:59, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

The reason I reverted the first time was because you made changes to tables that made them look worse than they did before, if you can figure out a way to accomplish your goal and leave the lines on the tables as then go right ahead. Athies22 (talk) 00:01, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
You never said that!!!!!!! Also, that becomes subjective and not a blanket reason to revert. You talk first and not revert for no reason. What tables were made worse? Bgwhite (talk) 00:04, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
The tables are worse because you removed the lines from them that make it easy to read them, whenever you revert you also remove a new table I made for the College Football Hall of Fame Inductees, as well as updates to tables about division championships, stick to editing pages that you have business editing.Athies22 (talk) 00:05, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
First off, anybody can edit any page. NEVER tell anybody not to edit. You do not own the page to where you can tell people to edit or not to edit. I have blocked people for saying that.
  1. I didn't remove any tables. You added your College Football Hall of Fame table AFTER you reverted my edit.
  2. I didn't remove any updates. You added them AFTER you reverted my edit.
  3. You reverted me. You reverted me with no reason given.
  4. What tables were lines removed from?
Bgwhite (talk) 00:27, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
The lines have been removed from the All-time record vs. current Pac-12 teams, Pro football hall of fame and super bowl winners, and oregon players currently in the nfl tables. I never claimed to own this page, it is simply a huge pain in my ass when some random person comes along and makes the page worse, causing me to spend hours of my own time fixing their mistakes.Athies22 (talk) 00:35, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
You would make a good politician or professor. Attack what you don't understand. So far, you've claimed page ownership... stick to editing pages that you have business editing, called everything I did mistakes, blamed me for things I didn't do (remove tables and updates), blamed me for your blind reverts and called me an ass.
I'm sure the 5 seconds it took for you to revert my original post was a pain. You brought this on yourself when you blindly reverted and assumed. Hopefully you will learn from this and not make the same mistake twice....
To add lines to a table, all it takes is to modify one line in each table. I know, hard.
Why I modified the tables. (1) page now loads just over 50% faster by reducing the size, removing redundant table parameters and correcting some bad syntax. (2) Tables are now much simpler to understand and edit. (3) if wanting to change how a table looks, for a majority of things, just change one line instead of multiple of lines. Bgwhite (talk) 06:25, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Civil War table[edit]

Sorry to revert you, but there has been an open (and forgotten) discussion about this on the talk page that you might have missed and I think it should be discussed before changing. Thanks! --Esprqii (talk) 15:05, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
