Innovating in sports

The WSJ Law Blog has this great post entitled "The Heisman Trophy, Archie Griffin & the Law," which provides a link to this great New York Times article about John William Heisman.  The post spotlights that Coach Heisman earned an L.L.B. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1892 and thereafter became a football innovator largely responsible for the forward pass, the "hike" vocal signal, the audible, and even the scoreboard.  Especially as I anticipate another Heisman Trophy for a Buckeye, this post got me to thinking about whether and when a "forward pass" type innovation might arrive at law schools.
