   For the Yalies on the list.  Maybe Yale has info on this writer?
   The NEW YORK TIMES obituary of George S. Trevor does _NOT_ state that he coined "Ivy League," but his columns are worth looking at.  From 18 November 1951, pg. 90, col. 3:

   A graduate of Yale, Mr. Trevor became one of the country's leading authorities on Ivy League football.  He recently was introduced to the Yale squad by its coach, Herman Hickman, as "the man who has done more than anyone else for Yale football."
   He was generally credited with creating the catch phrase, "Mr. Inside and Mr. Outside," to describe the two Army backfield stars, "Doc" Blanchard and Glenn Davis.
   Mr. Trevor was a former president of the New York Football Writers Association, the Track and Field Writers Assoication and the Touchdown Club of New York.
