Rest in Peace, Bo Schembechler

#2 Michigan (11-0) at #1 Ohio State (11-0)

It doesn't get bigger than this, a national title on the line, but
The Game has been overshadowed by the passing of former Michigan coach Bo Schembechler.
Bo, 77 years young, had heart problems. I hope he and the late Ohio State coach Woody Hayes, enjoy The Game together.
Bo was a straight up guy, a Michigan Man to the core, but an honest coach who had winning records at Miami University and Michigan.

Everybody should note the grief and sadness his passing has caused in Columbus, Ohio at The Ohio State University. From The Ohio State University website:

Ohio State mourns death of Bo Schembechler

Beloved Michigan coach will be honored at Ohio State/Michigan game

Bo Schembechler, one of college football's greatest coaches, will be honored with a moment of silence at Saturday's Ohio State/Michigan schembechler

"This is an extraordinary loss for college football," said Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel. "Bo Schembechler touched the lives of many people and made the game of football better in every way. He will always be both a Buckeye and a Wolverine and our thoughts are with all who grieve his loss."

This is at the school where one wall of the locker room reads: BEAT MICHIGAN.

Respectful Rivals - Ohio State and Michigan, the way rivals should be.
