We've lost another giant

Bo Schembechler, ex-football coach at University of Michigan, has died on the eve of an epic battle between his beloved Wolverines and the Ohio State Buckeyes. A seven-time Big Ten coach of the year and member of the National Football Hall of Fame, Schembechler never had a losing season in his 29 years of coaching. According to Associated Press sports writer Larry Lage,

"In the end, Michigan vs. Ohio State may have been too much for Bo Schembechler's failing heart. The man with half-century-old roots to The Game died at age 77 Friday on the eve of perhaps the biggest matchup in the storied rivalry's history, No 1 vs. No. 2, and his doctor said it might have been because of all the excitement."

Another sad day....
