If what you say is correct, then how and when is a 5th year allowed?
I've always believed that a 5th year is allowed only if an Ivy player was injured within the first x amount of games. In Vecchio's case, his soph year he only played 2 games. However, for those many freshmen that never get any playing time with the varsity, those same players are not allowed to play a 5th year because that would be considered redshirting.

The rule actually applied to injuries or other unusual extenuating circumstances. In all cases submission of the facts must be submitted and approved by the League Office to get that 5th year.

In the early 2000's, Penn QB Mike Mitchell was granted a 5th year that was not injury related. I believe this has not occurred very often. Whether the rule has been subsequently amended or eliminated I wouldn't know.

Thanks, and I guess the Ivy could make exceptions. Just like FBS schools sometimes grant players a 6th year, exceptions are granted.
But I never heard of players simply picking up an extra year simply because they didn't play one season.
My hope would be that the Ivy would allow players to graduate early and continue playing as graduate students while earning credit towards their Masters.

It ususally happens when players take off a year for a Mormon Mission.

I'm not recalling any other context...
