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.
