Weird OGR Error using MMQGIS to geocode

I am trying to geocode the addresses of about 100 high schools using the NCES's Common Core of Data file. When I browse to it and try to run the MMQGIS plugin on it I get the following error:
Failure creating output shapefile: creation of field hi11f failed (OGR error: Can't create field hi11f in Shape DBF file. Maximum record length reached.)
I have Googled this, and salient subparts of it, and can find nothing. The shapefile components themselves get created, but they do not seem to contain any information.

- Resolution set to invalid
- Status changed from Open to Rejected
This bug should be reported in the plugin bugtracker.
BTW, error message is clear: your shapefile exceeded maximum allowed number of fields. You need to delete some fields or use modern format e.g. SpatiaLite
