#1 Auburn vs #4 USC: Marc'ed for Battle

Auburn and QB Marcus Black take to USC and QB Marc Lockwood in a battle for the first spot in the natty.

#2 Oklahoma vs #6 TCU: Third Time Tiebreaker

Oklahoma and TCU meet for the third time this season to claim the Big 12's spot in the natty. TCU won the first, but OU won the second to win the Big 12 title. OU RB Maurice White and TCU QB Felix Luck are keys in the matchup.

AFC CCG: Titans @ Dolphins

The Titans knocked out the defending Super Bowl Champion Raiders, while Miami destroyed Pittsburgh 38-10 in last week's slate. Two aerial attack based teams will try to make it to Super Bowl IX in this exciting matchup.

NFC CCG: Eagles @ Packers

The Eagles won a crazy 41-38 game over the Falcons while the Packers won a slugfest in the snow against the Lions in the last round; another snow game might favor an Eagles victory if they can keep up the run game from the prior week, but it will be tough against the well-rounded Packers.

    Wiki Tutorial #1: Templates

    Recommended Posts

    Templates are a series of pre-defined tables that will show up via a reference linked to a common source.

     

    Why do you want this for stats? If you recreate a table for, let's say standings, on every page that needs them it will be an absolute disaster to make sure everything is kept up to date.

     

    The way you prevent this is with templates. A template is a page like this: http://cfbhc.com/wiki/index.php?title=Template:2020_AFC_East_Standings

     

    To reference the table in any page you create you would simply put {{NAME_OF_TEMPLATE}}. In this case {{2020 AFC East Standings}}.

     

    Frequently templates can also be used as an easy way to reciprocate data you want to display with a common layout but different inputs. For example, maybe you want all CFBHC players to have the same player profile box. Obviously each player has his own info so you wouldn't just copy one template over and over. Wiki markup language makes that simple!

     

    You simply invoke a template that's created for this express purpose (maybe leave creating this to the experts for now) and then a series of inputs go with the template reference.

     

    Invoking a template, as you learned before: {{NAME_OF_TEMPLATE}}

     

    These secondary types of templates will generally be called infoboxes for our purposes. Take a look at the one for player profiles: http://cfbhc.com/wiki/index.php?title=Template:Infobox_college_football_player

     

    So the way you invoke it is the same as before:

     

    {{Infobox college football player}}

     

    The difference this time is that there are several parameters that can be changed from the default template, the full list is here:

     

    {{Infobox college football player
    | name            = 
    | image           = 
    | image_size      = 
    | alt             = 
    | caption         = 
    | school          = 
    | currentnumber   = 
    | currentposition = 
    | class           = 
    | major           = 
    | birth_date      = 
    | birth_place     = 
    | height_ft       = 
    | height_in       = 
    | weight_lb       = 
    | highlights      = 
    | highschool      = 
    | pastschools     = 
    | bowlgames       = 
    | cbs             = 
    | espn            = 
    | si              = 
    | yahoo           = 
    | rivals          = 
    }}

     

    If you don't care about any part of it you can just remove that line and it'll still work! For example, the below code still works:

     

    {{Infobox college football player
    | name            = 
    | currentnumber   = 
    | currentposition = 
    }}

    That will help a lot. I learned a lot of things on the fly doing stuff for the spring game last offseason. But this will be immensely helpful. I think a lot of the reason people don't do wiki stuff is not knowing how.

    There's also http://cfbhc.com/wiki/index.php?title=Template:Infobox_college_football_player/sandbox if you want the exact infoboxes you'd find on college football player articles on Wikipedia.
