The first recipient of the Heisman (rhymes with Theismann) Trophy passed away at the age of 88.

He also the first players drafted by the NFL, although he never played (due to the miserly nature of George Halas).

FYI: It was actually not the Heisman until the year after he won it. That year, 1935, it was called the Downtown Athletic Club Award.

Not to be ghoulish, but when you're in the media, you learn that sometimes you have to be the bearer of bad news. And when you are a junkie for reading the wires, you find the news as soon as it breaks.

Plus, if it someone that deserves memorializing (or in the Darryl Kile, when it is NEWS), it shouldn't be 'swept under the rug.'

Ed: And hey, it didn't post about Ann Landers or Dear Abby, whichever one of the sisters that passed away last week.

Can someone explain this to me: Quoted from an ESPN.com article When Owens failed to file the request to void the contract, it was believed he had three seasons left. However, Gene Upshaw, the union's executive director, said there are two years left....
