Hi, welcome to College Football Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Big Ten Conference page.
NCAA football schedules
Just as an FYI, I've spent several months thinking about it, and have decided that your style of doing the football schedules is much simpler and easier than the grid pattern that I learned from doing the NFL stuff. So while I will keep the pros in the grid pattern, we should no longer be butting heads (much) in the college stats. And I apologize for any grief that I have caused in the past.

Hi there Hugbear-
I just wanted to ask if this wiki also includes articles about NFL football? If not, do you know if there is another wiki dedicated to that? I can't seem to find one, and I'd like to start one if there isn't one already. NFL.wikia.com just links to this site. :P
Disregard the above message... I just checked and this site does indeed have pro pages. :P My bad! I'll just edit here, I suppose.
Pages that were erased
Hoping all is well. For some reason, there was a user called Twistedmental, who erased seven pages, including six of my own, stating that it was not American football. I was not sure if you could please look into this. I understand that not everyone likes women's football (including LFL) but I would like to help build a database for it. Thanks for your time.

List of college team seasons
I have what might be a better way to handle a long list of seasons for a college team. I took the template that the NFL teams use to list all of their seasons in the main infobox, and I adapted it for Stanford. Eventually I could have those for all of the teams.Will49 (talk) 18:38, November 8, 2014 (UTC)
I'm going go delete your Providence Park page, but not for anything that you have done. A few weeks ago I created an almost identical page under the name of Multnomah Stadium, and was going to change the name several times (leaving behind redirects), so that we could allow for all of the names used for the place. My earlier one is already used for a bunch of Oregon and Oregon State games, and has some pix included, so I think that would be the better one to keep. But if I had gotten myself in gear, this would not have come up, so my apologies on that. Will49 (talk) 10:47, November 22, 2015 (UTC)
Proposal: Changing Florida International to FIU
I had a thought. "Florida International" is a pretty big and clunky name, and almost everywhere else that school is referred to as "FIU". How would you feel about us changing to FIU? I'd be willing to do most of the work of converting. Will49 (talk) 06:27, August 21, 2016 (UTC)
FYI, after some poking around, I found out that Florida International's teams were originally the "Sumblazers". They became the Golden Panthers before the 1987-88 school year, and the word "Golden" was dropped before the 2010-11 school year. Will49 (talk) 19:24, August 21, 2016 (UTC)
Virtual game ball
I've long known that you do the lion's share of the work here, but I never realized how much that amounted to until I created Category:College teams by year the category below. At which point I kind of said 'holy crap.' You've been keeping more than 700 teams current for several years now. So I started thinking about what I could do to recognize the amount and quality of work you do, and I came up with this. It might be a bit maudlin, but what the heck. And they do this sort of thing on the real Wikipedia, but never with this exact award. So I thought it would be fitting to give you a virtual game ball. You deserve it.

FYI Name Change
I was getting tangled in all of the different "Ottawa"'s that we had floating around, so I made a change. Following convention, as of now the NAIA Ottawa Braves of Kansas are the 'Ottawa (KS) Braves'. I think that I got all of the changes and redirects lined up. Should smooth things slightly.

- Hey hugbear. Can you please delete this category as i've created a new one in the old ones place. I've also, fixed the categories so no need to worry about that. Starkiller131 (talk) 20:50, September 18, 2017 (UTC)
Bureaucrat rights part two
- Hey hugbear. I have a question for you and Will. Do one of you want Bureaucrat rights? If you do not know the difference, a bureaucrat is essentially a Sysop (Administrator) that can promote regular editors from regular status to a user with rights. I just looked and the only Bureaucrat this wiki has is this user. We can either ask him to grant one of you two rights, or you can ask them yourself. Thanks, and happy editing.

wasup wat do u need help with Jdh87 (admin) 02:28, February 18, 2019 (UTC)
Hey, I was wondering if you would consider appointing a new Administrator? As a HUGE Football Fan I would love the opportunity to serve on this Fandom. I'm also Admin on the Lost wiki, and the Flash/Reverse Flash wiki so I guess I know what I'm doing ;) Thank you for your Consideration!
FYI Name Change >> Penn
I was rummaging around in the Penn Quakers media guide, and they have a specific directive in there asking media people to refer to them as "Penn", not "Pennsylvania". Since we are kinda sorta media people here, I'm going to spend some time making the appropriate changes. Will49 (talk) 20:37, October 29, 2019 (UTC)
