Atlantic Coast Conference football championship games[edit]

This FTC is the culmination of a project I've been working on for several months now: To create a featured topic encompassing the Atlantic Coast Conference football championship games. The topic includes the umbrella article about the championship game, the individual games that have been played so far, and a featured list of ACC football champions that, while not directly affiliated with the topic, could be construed as being part of it. To be on the safe side, I worked it up to featured status anyway.

Astute editors will note that there is also a 2008 ACC Championship Game article that is not a part of this topic. That is because that particular game has not been played yet, and the information contained within it is as yet incomplete. When the game has been played, the article and topic will be reviewed according to the procedures in the Retention subsection of the criteria.

This will be the first college football featured topic on Wikipedia, and indeed the first sports-related featured topic (as far as I can tell.) I'm trying to break new ground with this and set the stage for other college football featured topics as well. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about this nomination, please feel free to ask them here or on my talk page. I eagerly await your comments and support. Thank you for your time.

  • Support—I would like to point out that a number of soccer teams have featured topics. Zginder 2008-05-10T13:30Z (UTC)
  • Support - Yeah, there's 4 soccer ones and a hockey FT. First American Football FT, though. Good job on it all! --PresN (talk) 16:44, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Comment - would it not make the most sense to include the 2008 article as an "audited article of limited subject matter", like season 4 of Lost or season 7 of Degrassi? - rst20xx (talk) 17:13, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
    I do not know it might be important. Zginder 2008-05-10T17:36Z (UTC)
    If it really bugs you, I suppose we could do that. I'm fine waiting for the game to take place, though; there's not much I can say in the article that isn't already there, particularly since the season hasn't even started. JKBrooks85 (talk) 19:31, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
    I think you need to give it a peer review... then when the game occurs, bring it up to GA. This way seems better to me as IMO the topic just wouldn't be complete without it - rst20xx (talk) 00:45, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
    I completely agree. Would you be willing to do the peer review, then? JKBrooks85 (talk) 04:19, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
    I don't have the knowledge of the MOS etc to do it, sorry - rst20xx (talk) 13:40, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Support No problems here. Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 14:54, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Support No objections from me. And good to see that some sport other than soccer is getting an FT. Noble Story (talk) 09:53, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Close as consensus to promote --Arctic Gnome (talkcontribs) 07:26, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
