Head coaches lists[edit]

@Jrcla2 and Rikster2: Hey, guys. It's long overdue that someone creates a List of Florida Gators men's basketball head coaches. Can you provide three or four examples of college basketball coach lists that you believe are well done and among the better examples out there? Thanks. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 05:33, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

@Dirtlawyer1: I would say List of North Carolina Tar Heels men's basketball head coaches is the standard to use among the existing college basketball head coach lists. Jrcla2 (talk) 14:59, 5 January 2016 (UTC)
List of Oklahoma Sooners head basketball coaches is aso a good one. But feel free to browse Category:Lists of college basketball head coaches in the United States Rikster2 (talk) 23:38, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Lewisthejayhawk and Orangetycoon41[edit]

Jrcla2, happy new year. I think User:Orangetycoon41 could be a sockpuppet of User:Lewisthejayhawk. Thoughts? Jweiss11 (talk) 06:31, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

@Jweiss11: There certainly seems to be enough supporting evidence to think that. If so, wouldn't he be technically a sockpuppet of User:Dereks1x? Jrcla2 (talk) 15:15, 22 January 2016 (UTC)


Got our first 2000/1000 guy of the season - Shawn Long of Louisiana-Lafayette scored his 2000th point this past weekend. He had 1000 rebounds as of last year. Rikster2 (talk) 11:15, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Wow good catch. So early into the season, too. Most guys don't get that achievement until close to the end of their senior season. Jrcla2 (talk) 20:56, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
Jameel Warney may also hit this in his next game. He's 15 points shy and already has 1000 boards. Rikster2 (talk) 21:14, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
Added today. Jrcla2 (talk) 17:06, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

Erv Staggs[edit]

You really think he's the same as the NC A&T coach? He would've been a player on that team. More likely a junior/senior deal in my opinion. Rikster2 (talk) 15:32, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

I don't know if he is, I couldn't find a definitive source one way or the other, but the media guide lists "James Staggs" as the team's leading scorer in 1967–68, the same season that the NC A&T coach navbox had James Staggs as head coach. Can you find a source? Jrcla2 (talk) 16:25, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
What's the source that says Staggs coached there? It is a 1-year tenure between two of Cal Irvin's - this source says Staggs played for Irvin. When I search coaches with the name Staggs in the NCAA database, nothing comes up. Could it be the navbox is a mistake? Rikster2 (talk) 16:37, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
This source shows James Staggs as the coach in 1967–68, but this shows he was their head coach for 18 years, which would include the 67/68 season. This also shows an 18-year head coaching career. Maybe the ESPN College Basketball Enyclopedia is wrong, since every other source indicates that Irvin was the coach that year? Jrcla2 (talk) 18:39, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
I think ESPN is wrong. Notice for most years they list leading scorer as well as coach. I think for this entry they used the wrong name. Rikster2 (talk) 19:01, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I think you're right. I've definitely found misinformation in that book before, and it doesn't make sense to think that Staggs would be a player-coach. I'll adjust the article and navbox accordingly. Jrcla2 (talk) 19:25, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
For the record, ESPN absolutely sucks from a research perspective. Just today they had a tweet extolling Kay Felder's PPG while leading the country in assists. They credit "Jason Jordan" of Davidson in 2006-07 as having the highest PPG while leading the country in assists. They of course meant Jared Jordan of Marist, while Jason Richards of Davidson led the country the next year. Rikster2 (talk) 21:57, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
DraftExpress isn't much better as far as basic player info is concerned. I primarily use that website for the high schools, which are normally reliable, but beyond that it's a waste. Jrcla2 (talk) 01:01, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

CAA tourney[edit]

Hey - are you going to the CAA tourney? I have business in Baltimore Monday and may go to the final if W&M makes it - won't pass up possibly seeing history. If you are going let me know, we should catch up. Rikster2 (talk) 02:13, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

I'm bummed that I can't go because I'll be out of town on business myself actually. Please bring your good camera and take some photos of Tony Shaver if you can! Jrcla2 (talk) 16:19, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

NBL articles[edit]

Hey - Thanks for creating these by the score! I have one request - as you create them, can you add their deaths to the relevant year in basketball article (eg - 2016 in basketball). A user went through and created a ton of these but didn't populate them fully. I add deaths as I can, but it's helpful if as the creator you can add it at the time just as you would for a high school alumni list or adding onto a list of surnames. Thanks! Rikster2 (talk) 14:28, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

Ok sure, I'll keep that in mind going forward. For whatever reason I got the itch to knock out all of the Pittsburgh Raiders players since the team only existed for one season. It's now fully populated (still needs a parent article though). It was kind of fun discovering the head coach for the Raiders in the process, Joe Urso. Jrcla2 (talk) 14:34, 31 March 2016 (UTC)


Thanks for helping with the sort settings for the 1999-2000 Temple Basketball men's basketball team page I started. It can be tricky for the 1999-00 season. Bruinfan12 (talk) 21:03, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

You're welcome. Side note: when leaving messages on talk pages, please remember to use four tildes (~~~~) at the end to produce your signature. I added your name in this time though. Jrcla2 (talk) 13:21, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

Help stubbing out bio articles to preserve navboxes[edit]

Jrcla2, how's it going? Corkythehornetfan is in the process of identifying NCAA Division I coach and athletic director navboxes that have few blue links and are therefore potential candidates for deletion. He's compiling a list here. Given your focus on college basketball, I thought perhaps you would be able to attack the basketball coach navboxes on the list and see about creating new articles such that each navbox has at least four blue links. I plan to tackle any athletic director or football coach navboxes that appear on the list. Let me know if are able to chip in here. Thanks, Jweiss11 (talk) 01:11, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Ok I'll try to knock out a couple. Jrcla2 (talk) 01:21, 4 April 2016 (UTC)



I saw your deletion of the Villanova bench players. I believe that WP:NNC or WP:NOTEWORTHY governs - notability does not apply within article content. Otherwise, the list should be called something like "2016 Villanova Wildcats who played in the title game," or "Partial list of 2016 Villanova Wildcats." Not even all those who played in the final are necessarily notable beyond what might be relatively short time.

For many other teams, players who barely played are included on their team lists.

Let me know what you think.

Regards, Ira Ira Leviton (talk) 20:32, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Notability is not temporary. If they are notable now, they're presumed notable forever. And a lot of players on other teams become notable for non-playing reasons, but still warrant articles. Literally every single college basketball, college football, and college baseball championship navbox only contains players who pass WP:GNG, even if those players are notable for reasons entirely unrelated to the sport itself. Those championship navboxes are not supposed to be banner-hangers and memorials to every player and coach who happened to be on the roster (that's what the season articles are for); they are supposed to include only links that help navigate between articles. Sometimes, as in the Villanova navbox, certain notable players do not yet have articles, hence the red links. But no, not every player or coach deserves to be on them.

Anthony Anderson FA nomination[edit]

I have nominated the Anthony Anderson (basketball) article to possibly have it be promoted to a featured article. Could you please leave some comments on areas that you would want to fix so that it meets the FA criteria? If so, add your opinion on the article on the nomination page. TempleM (talk) 00:06, 19 April 2016 (UTC)


Isn't there a clause with SEAOFBLUE regarding tables? I swear there have been discussions regarding OVERLINKING and SEAOFBLUE in terms of tables and how they are an exception. Would you consider doing the same to All-NBA Team (too many entries I'm guessing is a reason why not)? Why so set on implementing SEAOFBLUE on All D-League Team? I personally don't see the big deal in having them all linked, looks patchy to me with black and blue scattered. In saying that, I will NOT add them again :-) DaHuzyBru (talk) 16:01, 30 April 2016 (UTC)

I would definitely consider doing the same to All-NBA Team. By keeping players and teams linked only the first time they appear, it is cleaner and less arduous to sort through who's been selected before. Plus, keeping duplicate entries unlinked saves kilobyte space on the article, helping it to load faster. Jrcla2 (talk) 15:47, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Category:Cal State Los Angeles Golden Eagles football[edit]

Jrcla2, I have a name change in for Category:Cal State Los Angeles Golden Eagles football and its subcategories. Since you created this category, I thought you may want to chime in here. Thanks, Jweiss11 (talk) 03:05, 11 May 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. I just supported it. All that I ask is you add clarifying descriptions to each of those categories explaining why they're called the Diablos, so that nobody in the future erroneously tries to name them the Golden Eagles again. Jrcla2 (talk) 03:09, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for commenting. The clarifying descriptions sound reasonable. I also added Cal State Los Angeles to List of college nickname changes in the United States. Jweiss11 (talk) 05:35, 11 May 2016 (UTC)

Scott Darpeau source[edit]

The article needs more sources. I don't have Highbeam access, but here is a Boston Globe article specifically about Drapeau if you want to add it. Rikster2 (talk) 13:57, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

Thanks! I added that. Jrcla2 (talk) 21:21, 19 June 2016 (UTC)

Conference POY article?[edit]

Hey - I am making a push to finish last year's CPOY articles (at least as stubs) and wondered if you might be willing to create Juan'ya Green, the 2016 CAA POY? I know you have slowed down your article creations, but frankly so have I. There are 7 CPOYs left so I figured if I could farm out a couple I could finish them off. Rikster2 (talk) 00:11, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

My new career took a huge chunk out of my ability to knock out good articles, and I just recently got into Temple's online MBA program which starts for me at the end of August. I'll try to continue to do what I can but real life has been getting in the way. As far as Juan'ya Green, I will try to take a stab at it within the next week! Jrcla2 (talk) 14:08, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
Done. Jrcla2 (talk) 15:41, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

2016 McDonald's All-American Boys Game images[edit]

Since you have contributed to this discussion in prior years, I am requesting your input at Talk:2016_McDonald's_All-American_Boys_Game#Image_voting.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 14:14, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Keep in mind that our readers could be looking at these as the main image for a few years. The top 3 selections in the 2016 NBA draft still have McDonald's A-A game images as their main images and a half dozen players from the 2013 McDonald's All-American Boys Game still have MDAAG images as their main image.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 23:24, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Years moving around in infobox[edit]

The IPs are not doing it on purpose, it is a glitch with using visual editor to edit infobox information. Rikster2 (talk) 14:25, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

List of NCAA Division I men's basketball season scoring leaders[edit]

Hi! Looks like something is missing from the 1986/1987 season. Kevin Houston has scored 953 total points, but if you multiply 311 by 2 and add 268, the result would be 890, not 953. I don't really get why the website doesn't have the statistics on 3-point field goals, although it's available starting from 1987 (not 1988 as it claims). Taking this into account, we shouldn't consider the website an ideal source, and honestly I think the authors could have made a mistake in 1944/1945 season in Mikan's points.
