Detroit Sports and stuff

My ranting of sports, life, and whatever I feel like...but mostly sports. Now in the un-daily variety.

"Those who stay will be Champions"

Today, the University of Michigan, and the entire college football world, lost one of the best coaches to ever teach the game. Glen E. "Bo" Schembechler passed away this morning at the age of 77. Bo was probably known best for his intense rivalry with then Ohio State head coach Woody Hayes, and the "10-year war" between the two schools when they coached their respective teams. I never met the man, but according to all of the stories that I've heard today, Bo was an inspiration to a lot of people, and a friend to a lot more people. He genuinely cared for people, and he had a passion for the game he taught for so many years. It is one of the reasons that his legacy in the sport, and the shadow he casted at the University of Michigan, will never be forgotten. Best wishes to the Schembechler family.
