Bo- God Bless you! 1929-2006

AP-ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Bo Schembechler, the winningest coach in Michigan football history, died Friday after collapsing during the taping of a television show, according to three Detroit TV stations. He was 77.

The only news bigger than the Michigan (2) and Ohio State (1) football contest tomorrow, could be the passing of the beloved iconic former football coach, Bo Schemblechler. On the eve of arguably the biggest college football game in history… Bo Schembechler went off to the big stadium in the sky.

In the over century old rivalry between the two teams, this might mean more to both sides of the field than all of the previous contests combined.

Coach of the Michigan Wolverines from 1969-1989 he was the winningest coach in Michigan history. The seven-time Big Ten coach of the year compiled a 194-48-5 record at Michigan from 1969-89.

Bo, who reportedly did not go to road games any more, will no doubt be in everyone’s hearts and minds tomorrow. I have not doubt this is a road game he will not miss as he will be looking down on everyone giving his blessing to his beloved Maize and Blue. I have no doubt that come tomorrow he will be ejoying the game as he always did with love for the sport that is rarely seen in even the most die-hard fan, the most dedicated coach, the oldest alumni… We will miss you Bo.
