1979 SEC Baseball Tournament[edit]

Thanks for working on the 1979 SEC Baseball Tournament article. I noticed you requested help on the bracket. I can relate. I have been looking for a 4-team (for early SEC tournaments) and 6-team (for NCAA Regionals prior to 1999 & SEC tournaments from 1993-1995) double elimination bracket template but have been unable to find one. I don't know where I could request one be made. For the time being what you have done will have to suffice. It looks good enough. I'll edit the headings a bit (change "Semi-Finals" to "Finals"). If you come across the templates we need them please let me know. Also, if you're into editing SEC tournament stuff or NCAA baseball tournament stuff then let me know. Thanks again!

Hey, thanks again for helping out with college baseball stuff. Right now the 2007 SEC Baseball Tournament is going on. I'm going to do my best to keep the article up to date but if you want to add stuff to it then please go ahead. Also, the 2007 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament will be starting soon. That one requires a lot of work to keep up with. I'd appreciate any help you would be willing to give on that. It'd be awesome if we could get all of the SEC tournaments done, also. Quick question for you: I created the 1992 SEC Baseball Tournament article and got halfway done with the bracket only to realize that it's not a real tournament bracket like the CWS uses. It's convoluted in someway in the way it matches up teams to play each other. I just gave up on it. If you have any idea as to what the SEC was doing back then with tourney brackets then please let me know. I was only 12 years old back then so I don't really remember it. Anyway, if you're interested in editing other college baseball stuff then check out: NCAA Division I Baseball Championship, College World Series, and SEC Baseball Tournament. Those articles should be able to link you to most college baseball articles here on WikiPedia. Thanks again for your help! Seancp 20:42, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

College Baseball Project Reminder[edit]

I just wanted to let you know that the Wikipedia:WikiProject College baseball is back up and running just in time for the college baseball season. I noticed you had worked on season articles for Mississippi State baseball (2005 and 2007). We've worked on standardizing new college baseball season pages. Right now we only have three editors working on 2008 articles. (2008 LSU Tigers baseball team, 2008 Clemson Tigers baseball team, and 2008 Vanderbilt Commodores baseball team). If you're interested in created and maintaining a 2008 article for Mississippi State then by all means please do, and join us at the discussion page: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject College baseball. Thanks. Seancp (talk) 14:18, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Working on it! Jhn31 (talk) 19:07, 24 August 2014 (UTC)


Hi Jhn31. It appears that although you updated the points after the recent conference reallignment, you seem to have forgotten to change the legend. For example, right now it says the red schools are a member of the CCHA, whereas they are actually part of the Big Ten. Thanks again for your work on the map of NCAA DI hockey teams.--Prisencolinensinainciusol (talk) 23:37, 24 October 2014 (UTC)


Thanks for you comment here: [1]. I don't expect everyone to know the history of every Division I football program, but I do expect most experience editors to understand the WP:GNG notability standard. This topic clearly fails that standard, and it's odd to me that some folks want to fight that. FYI, your comments about the historical Auburn-Georgia Tech rivalry were dead on point; that was a real rivalry, and it is fondly remembered by Auburn and Tech alumni here in Atlanta. There is periodic talk about reviving it as an annual or at least regularly scheduled series, but the difficulty of the 8-game SEC schedule and the recent weak performance of Tech makes that unlikely. No one remembers Auburn-Tulane, fondly or otherwise. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 18:58, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Yes, it's very strange that people are seriously arguing over this one. Jhn31 (talk) 16:55, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Mississippi State colors[edit]

Per this edit: Mississippi State has an accent color of gray -- those hex codes can be found here. I think an accent color is needed, and either the #777777 or #CCCCCC should be used. C is seen better than 7, but they use both on their Athletics website. So it is not the wrong color. 🎄 Corkythehornetfan 🎄 21:56, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

Maybe I'm misunderstanding the point of the color list, but the school's official colors are maroon and white only, not grey or black -- that's all over the website. That link you provided is the same one I used to confirm the official maroon (660000). Along with the greys, it lists an "official" blue, yellow, green, orange, brown, purple, etc., but it's not like every color of the rainbow is an official school color -- it's just that those are the shades to use if you're going to use one of those colors. What brought this on was navboxes in the "CollegePrimaryStyle" for Mississippi State having an awful grey (the darker one) border around them that's definitely not one of the school colors. In addition, the letters on the navboxes would come in with that dark grey and be impossible to read (on maroon) if it wasn't overridden to be white. I see no reason why Mississippi State navboxes should have grey borders when that's not a school color. Jhn31 (talk) 02:02, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
Just because the official colors are maroon and white, doesn't mean we can't use an accent color. This logo sheet for the university shows PMS 428, a.k.a. CCC. The blue, yellow, green, etc. is for academic purposes, not necessarily for Athletics, which the source even says "Along with the official MSU maroon being Pantone 505, below is a sample of approved support and accent colors that can be used in promoting the academic side of the university". Athletics uses grey on their logos, according to the logo sheet, so I don't see why it can't be there. They grey is used a lot in their logos, on their website, etc. CCC is compliant if it were to override the white font -- so that means it's readable. 🎄 Corkythehornetfan 🎄 03:15, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

Maps on college football season articles[edit]

Jhn31, I think these maps you are adding to the college football season articles are pretty ridiculous and cluttering. You've also got a big problem with articles like 1950 college football season, where your map is missing all the small schools that played together with the big boys essentially in one division before NCAA classifications were created. @Lizard the Wizard:, thoughts on this? Jweiss11 (talk) 02:01, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

I think maps on articles work best when there's only a few locations listed, that way the map can be reduced to a reasonable size and still be readable. See the map on 1987 Masters Tournament for example, which I'd consider reasonably sized; stuffing 80 or so schools onto a map that size would just be silly, but blowing the map up across the entire page is arguably an even worse option. It's way too obtrusive. Lizard (talk) 02:09, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
There are already a number of similar college football maps on various pages here. And putting a nationwide map on a season article is pretty standard in other sports where the alignments aren't the same every year (such as European soccer and hockey). I agree that it doesn't look very good on mobile, but nothing in that template ever does.
As far as the long ago years like 1950 go, I used the "major" teams only, according to sports-reference. Jhn31 (talk) 03:08, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
To clarify, someone put 4 maps up on NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision#Maps of teams. However, it doesn't make a lot of sense to just have them for 4 random years, since there's a change almost every year. I did tidy the maps up a bit though and at least gave them their own sections without words running through them. Jhn31 (talk) 03:18, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
Jhn31, it's not clear to me how sports-reference makes their determination of "major" teams or if that determination would be encyclopedic. Do you have any sense about this? Jweiss11 (talk) 21:52, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
Not sure, especially when it lists which Independents counted as major. Jhn31 (talk) 22:47, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
