Any video of Oosterbaan ceremony?

Submitted by Wolverine Devotee on September 9th, 2012 at 2:12 PM

I was looking at the photo gallery on the Michigan Photo Store, and I saw they had pictures of the pregame ceremony for Bennie. Does anyone have any videos of the ceremony or have the video they played on the scoreboard? They have the one from Desmond up on youtube.

Not sure, but it was a lot shorter than the ceremony for Desmond.  They talked a little about how he was an accomplished athlete in three sports (football, basketball and baseball) and one of his relatives was presented a framed jersey with a Legends patch on it.  That was about it.

Marginal threadjack, but it seems strange it went to an LB.  I thought there was a positional continuity thing with this, although I guess there is no tight end/wr (is that the most apporpriate parallel?) who has earned it.

Yes, but they weren't called linebackers back then. They were called "Defensive Halfbacks"

Older position = Modern definition

Ends= WR & TE on offense, DE on defense

Tackles= OT on offense, DT or NT on defense.

Guards= OG on offense, MG on defense

Halfbacks= Left/Right HB or FB on offense, LB on defense

Backs= FB on offense, DB on defense

But the scoreboard video appeared in Inside Michigan Football today, as well as some footage of the framed jersey and featuring Jake Ryan a bit. So when that video is ultimately uploaded you can see/get it there.
