BO SCHEMBECHLER 1929-2006

We're reasonably certain we weren't the last to rip Bo on the Internet but it still feels a little creepy. (We did wish him a fast recovery, for all the good that did). Two observations:

1. You're a real football program when your coach dies and it's the lead news story on CNN.

2. Michigan/OSU just became the biggest college football game ever.

RIP to the last of the true Tough Guy college football coaches.

It is also stated that he had a heart-attack the night before the Rose Bowl in 1970. Schembechler was a seven-time Big Ten coach of the year, compiling a 194-48-5 record at Michigan from 1969-89. His record in 26 years of coaching was 234-65-8. He never had a losing season. Impressive! Read More...
