I'll review this over the next couple days, since this is currently the oldest nom awaiting a review. Wizardman 23:01, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Here are the issues I found:

  • "who claimed eight national championships in ten years. Only Yale presented any form of challenge, claiming four national championships in the same time period" so there were 12 titles in 10 years? If so that's fine, just making sure I'm not misreading.
  • Yes, you're reading that right. I think there were actually more like 15.
  • "Hopkins first team was assembled in 1881," Hopkins'
  • Corrected.
  • "Navy returned the favor in the second half of the game, when" rm comma
  • Comma removed.
  • "The next year, in 1885, Naval Academy officials finally approved of the playing of football" How were Navy able to play up until then? Or was it just a situation where they allowed it but just looked the other way?
  • It was pretty much they just looked the other way, with the policy that, if anything happened, the students, not the Academy, would be held responsible.

Only a little bit that I found to be an issue. I'll put the article on hold and will pass when the above is fixed. Wizardman 00:09, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

I have attempted to correct or clarify all of your concerns. Thanks for the review. - A Texas Historian (Talk to me) 15:30, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
