"Actually, four of the Ivy League teams meet one or both of the requirements, but must go with their four sister schools into Division I-AA if they want to maintain a formal football league. All eight Ivy League athletic directors were present for the vote and said they would stay together. The four Ivy League teams that qualify with big enough stadiums are Penn, Princeton, Yale and Harvard. Yale and Harvard also meet the attendance requirement. The other four are Brown, Columbia, Cornell and Dartmouth." (NY Times)

Goldstein said in his book that only Yale met the attendance requirements.

Not that it makes any difference, because four of the eight Ivies exceeded the minimum stadium size at that point, and were qualified to remain in Division 1. The "Big Boys" unanimously voted to leave Div. 1 in order to stick with their fellow Ivy Leaguers.

Goldstein wrote a comprehensive book on Ivy Football history. If he says that only Yale qualified for IA status in 1981 but voted to remain with the other seven in IAA, then that's it for me.

Of course, if you can find other errors in his book, I'm listening. It would be odd if THAT is the only thing he got wrong, wouldn't it? I mean, that's pretty egregious....
