@j.e.f.f you’re a star!
I don’t know if this helps: https://github.com/eikeco/pointstreak-leauge-table
@Krisalexroberts-0 it does. Seems to be hit or miss as to which leagues have data feeds. Are there specific leagues that you’re looking to see incorporated? Doesn’t look like I can just incorporate blanket pointstreak support.
I’m selfish so only care about EIHL
@Krisalexroberts-0 An API key is required, but I can’t see anywhere on Pointstreak’s site to get one. Nor can I find any documentation on the endpoints (The link you provided was for standings, not for scores). At this point I’m not sure it’s going to be possible…
@Spankythemusical @onetwankyfive I’m in the process of gathering everything I need for NCAAF. I’ve managed to source all of the logos for Division I (FBS 1-A, FCS 1-AA). Forgive me if this isn’t obvious to me –
college football is not really a thing in Canada – but does anyone care about Division II and Division III? From what I can gather, Division I seems to only be what people generally follow.
Sourcing logos for Div II and III looks like it will take some time and work, and I’d like to avoid it if it’s not really something people care about. Even ESPN’s web site only has a few logos for those teams.
@j.e.f.f I believe that division 1 is the one that’s followed by the most people. I don’t even know f it’s possible to get info from the other divisions through the major sites.
Thank you for doing this. I’m curious to see how far off my attempt is from what you come up with.
@Spankythemusical Actually now that I look at the feed I’m using, it appears that it’s only returning games for FBS (1-A) teams, not FCS (1-AA) unless they are playing a FBS team. This is the feed I found. Is this the same feed you’re using?
datesis specified to query for a specific day
limitsets a maximum number of returned games)
In the above example, one game gets returned for September 7 – Idaho State Bengals vs Utah State Aggies – which corresponds to the one FBS game scheduled for that date. However, if I switch the schedule (say on ESPN’s website) I see four games scheduled, one of which is an overlap with the single FBS game, as Utah is an FBS team, but Idaho State is FCS.
So it appears that FBS teams play FCS teams, and such games will show up in the ESPN feed. However games that feature FCS-only games do not. It appears that FCS teams play games against Division II or III – I see one game on Sept 7: West Alabama Tigers vs Samford Bulldogs. West Alabama is a Division II team.
I have learned from this Wiki that FBS teams don’t play Division II/III teams, only FCS teams, as victories against anything below FCS don’t count for bowl eligibility.
Is this a hard and fast rule? I wouldn’t want to go through the effort of sourcing Div II/III logos if they will never appear against FBS teams.
In any case, it appears that I can only support FBS (1-A) games at the moment. Is this good enough for the college football fans?
@j.e.f.f Code written for FBS, but also having FCS logos in the folder (for overlapping game types), should work for 99.9% of the people. If that’s possible.
I’ll have to look in morning to see if that’s the website that I’ve been using. It does seem about right.
@Spankythemusical yeah certainly doable. I have already sourced all the FBS and FCS team logos. So if the feed only covers FBS games then we should be covered for all team logos.
I’ve learned so much about American college football over the last few days!
@j.e.f.f This excites me! Div 1 is what I was looking for
