    Dick Kazmaier, last Ivy League Heisman Trophy winner, dies at 82

    I hope folks don't mind these more obscure obits of late, but this one struck me as very interesting. Won the Heisman and then passed on playing in the NFL. It was a different time to say the least. Some interesting quotes, including one from his fellow Princeton alum, Bill Bradley.

    Frank Deford had a piece on Kazmaier on NPR's Morning Edition today. Interesting portion about him being a tailback and what that position was back then.
