  • Symbol question.svg Articles are all new enough and long enough with the two All-America articles being fivefold expansions. Most of the facts in the hook are well referenced but the "27 out of 33 Ivy League" statement in the 2 main articles are not. The other problem with the hook is that James Bloomer went to Yale and not Harvard. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 12:47, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Thanks for being patient. Have not had much time for Wikiwork this month. I've added in-line citations to show that 13 of 15 in 1900 were from Ivy League and 14 of 18 in 1901. Adding those up, you get 27 of 33. I've also fixed the misplacement of Bloomer on the Harvard side of the ledger. Let me know if there's anything else. Cbl62 (talk) 05:45, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol confirmed.svg Now that these things are fixed, this is ready to go. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 05:53, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
