1929-2006

Bo Schembechler died today.

The legendary coach of the University of Michigan football team died on the eve of Michigan v. Ohio State. The battle between the first and second-ranked teams in the nation. The day before what is being touted as one of the biggest college football game in recent history.

Unbelievable.

He addressed the Michigan football team just yesterday. Today he is dead. Tomorrow his Wolverines play the Buckeyes.

The timing of his death is surreal. Straight out of the script of a movie. The effect Bo’s death will have on the game tomorrow is intriguing, to say the least. I imagine that the Wolverines will play with emotion tomorrow, in honor of Bo, in celebration of his legacy.

God bless Bo.

Go Blue.
