With the #47 making it's first appearance on a Michigan Football field since 1927, the opening year of Michigan Stadium, MVictors caught up with Bennie Oosterbaan's godson. Really cool article. He was given the game ball of the 1958 Michigan-minnesota game as a Christmas gift to his Godson, Ben McCready (named after Bennie Oosterbaan). It was a game played on 10/25/1958 and it happened to the game ball from Coach Oosterbaan's last victory.
I'm really glad they are honoring Bennie and keeping his legacy and memory alive. Despite the criticisms about the patch "cluttering the jersey", this is a great way to keep fans educated about great players from the past.
