Schembechler, 77, collapses while taping TV show

There is almost something eerie about Bo's passing the day before the big game at OSU. There is no question that coach Schembechler intensified the rivalry between University of Michigan and Ohio State University. The images in my memory of the sparing between Bo and Woody are vivid to this day.

The Detroit News Online:
"One of the greatest hearts in the history of collegiate football ceased beating Friday.

Legendary University of Michigan coach Bo Schembechler is dead at the age of 77.

Schembechler fell ill while preparing for the taping of a television show at Channel 7. Station officials said police and fire officials responded immediately, and escorted Schembechler’s ambulance to Providence Hospital at 9:25 a.m."
