    Updated: Bo Schembechler passed away

    From theozone.net -

    Earlier this morning former Michigan Head Football Coach Bo Schembechler collapsed during a television taping at WXYZ television in Detroit.

    Schembechler was taken by ambulance to Providence Hospital in the Detroit area. We have no report on his condition, but onlookers at the television station said that the situation appeared to be serious.

    Schembechler is a native of Barberton, Ohio, and one of the architects of the Ohio State vs. Michigan rivalry. His 10-year competition with the late Woody Hayes is considered by many as the highpoint of the rivalry. Schembeckler played for Hayes at Miami of Ohio and later was a member of Hayes' OSU coaching staff.
    More details when they are known.

    Re: Bo Schembechler is hospitalized before the Big Game.

    Best of luck to him to get well soon. I know he had already said he wasn't coming to the game because of health conditions with the heart problems he had earlier this year.

    Edit: Just read over at Bucknuts someone heard on the radio he is in critical condition.

    Re: Bo Schembechler is hospitalized before the Big Game.

    One of the Michigan blogs I read had this:

    Word around the hospital is a severe heart attack. Bo, seriously: you gotta make it one more day.


    I'll be praying for Bo and his family and hope that he fully recovers.

    The man has had a bad ticker since 1969, hold on Bo.

    Here's a link to the ESPN.com story that I'm sure will be updated.

    And to echo Red Leader, Bo has to make it one more day no matter what. That would be terrible to see him go the day before arguably the biggest game in the rivalry.

    Report out of Detroit's Channel 7 are now saying that Bo Schembechler has passed away at the age of 77.

    R.I.P, Coach. You'll be missed and thank you for the memories.

    RIP Bo, as great a coach as there ever was.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Re: Bo Schembechler is hospitalized before the Big Game.

    My friend at work sent me an email and said "Now Bo and Woody can watch the game together tomorrow and scream at each other until they both lose their voices."

    Probably true. I can't image either of them doing anything else.

    You have to wonder how worked up he was getting over this game. With his heart condition the stress could have been too much.

    What do you want to bet Woody just wanted a buddy to watch the game with?

    Edit: Just saw we posted the same thing Red Leader
