Bo Schembechler: 1929-2006

One the eve of the big game in Columbus college football received some sad news, as former Michigan coach Bo Schembechler has passed away.  He was 77 years old.

I think Jim Tressel put it really well:

"This is an extraordinary loss for college football," Ohio State coach Jim Tressel said in a statement. "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."
