I tried looking for these videos online for a while but couldn't find them...does anyone have a link to the heisman presentation videos for howard and/or woodson?
Thanks a bunch!
Woodson isn't on YouTube? That's surprising.
One thing that always gets me about his speech is that, if I'm not mistaken, he never says "Michigan" once. Never thanks his coaches, never really talks about his teammates. Nothing. I know it's definitely something where you're put on the spot with a million TV cameras in your face, one of the defining moments of your life, etc. etc., but geez... At least say something about the University.
presentation videos for Wuerfel and Cappeletti, among others, but I also can't find anything for Woodson's or Howard's presentations. Where did you see it?
In Woodson's day there were not even close to a million TV cameras anywhere near the Heisman presentation. I'm pretty sure the award was presented in a rotary club with maybe 100 people in the room. It was nowhere near the event it is today.
A million cameras, no. But it was definitely on national TV, as I watched it from my parents' house in MKE.
In any case, OP, maybe file a request with WolverineHistorian on YouTube?
1997 lol not 1967
It was held at the Downtown Athletic Club in New York City, which was damaged in and subsequently closed after 9/11, not some "Rotary Club." And, yes, there were a lot of cameras and media in the room.
Find the best quality picture and video possible from that night. Then find a second quality picture and video. It's tougher than everybody thinks. For being 1997, there is hardly media out there for the first and only defensive player to ever win the Heisman. Even the video ESPN always shows during the Heisman hype sequences are sketchy.
What's your point? Are you trying to argue it wasn't heavily covered by the media? Because you'd definitely be wrong.
Yeah. I can only find four avatar sized pictures on Mike D's picture pages, there are no videos of it on Youtube, the only video is a forty minute torrent which I'm hoping someone will post screencaps of because I'm legitimately interested to know the quality of the footage. This thread has been up for a day and change and still no one has posted multiple quality pictures or streaming videos. People have yet to disprove my point.
Everybody keeps saying it was covered heavily but can't post pictures or video links to support their stance. I'm open to being wrong, and if I am then so be it, but getting four or five people to say that it was heavily covered then not be able to show proof doesn't make it true. The fact that there is nobody posting pictures or posting links to videos helps to prove MY point. I can find more copies of Budd Dwyer killing himself than I can of Woodson winning the Heisman. Just sayin.
you think you can get hold of these videos???
