Fun fact: Professor Swidler continues to chase the ghost of John Heisman. Professor Swidler’s two alma maters, Brown and Oberlin were where Heisman was a student and then coached his first college football team. Professor Swidler has also taught at Auburn (Heisman, 1895-99) and Rice (Heisman, 1924-27). He’s not completely shed his intertemporal overlap as Lafayette beat Heisman’s 1921 University of Pennsylvania team, 38-6.
