    Re: Bo Schembechler is hospitalized before the Big Game.

    ESPN News is carrying the local Michigan Channel 7 Feed. They did show some of the interview that he had just been taping. Nothing abnormal. Pretty neat career highlight montage being shown as well.
    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.

    Honestly this guy is loved more in Columbus, OH than some of our coaches since Woody.

    RIP

    RIP Bo Schembechler. I wonder how this will play into the big game tomorrow. I will always remember him when he was the Michigan AD in a press conference after Bill Freider had left to go to Arizona State. He was telling the reporters he didn't want Frieder to stay on for the NCAA Tournament because he wanted a Michigan man to coach not an Arizona man. I kinda of admired him for that. Schembechler said he would coach the team if had to but we all know what happened. Fisher caught a bolt of lightening and won the NCAA championship.

    I wish that Ohio State and Michigan along with ABC would do something unprecedented tomorrow, beyond showing respect, I wish that they would show heart and soul and set the game aside for more than the traditional moment.

    To see both schools agree and both coaches and teams come to the middle of the field, and for the coaches to speak before millions, for both to dedicate the game to Bo.

    Bo made this game what it is. Without Bo a big part of Woody would have never been, a big part of Michigan vs. Ohio State never would have been, in a very big way Bo made the show that is to be played tomorrow what it is. Both schools owe Bo a great deal so it would be appropriate for both to express that while setting the game aside for a bit, for Bo.

    And his replacement led them to the championship. Good times.

    I would think that Tressel and Carr have this covered for tomorrow.

    I agree. Lloyd, one of Bo's best friends, and Tressel, a noted believer in traditions of the game, are two people I would expect to do no matter what it takes to make sure that Bo is remembered in this game.

    As a side note, no matter what NCAA sanctions are put in place, I expect Michigan to have a patch or a sticker on their jersey or helmet for tomorrow's game to remember Bo. The University will undoubtedly pay huge dollars for any fines incurred as a result just to make sure a tribute is carried out.

    Not only do I hope to see a fitting tribute tomorrow for the game by both schools, I sincerely hope that Ohio State fans and students are respectful and quiet for the ceremony or moment of silence whatever they decide to do. I know most fans will, but the majority of the students will be liquored up and might not understand the magnitude of Bo's impact on college football and the rivalry between OSU and UM.

    RIP

    Oh, I'm quite certain that most OSU students and fans are aware of Bo's place in this rivalry. Whether they'll be respectful or not, I don't know. I hope they are.

    I am stunned. The sad news, the timing... just shocking to me. I am a huge OSU fan, but I have always respected Bo. He was a great coach and seemed to turn many boys into men. He will be missed. RIP.

    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    I hope so too. I hope the OSU fans exhibit the class that they believe they have.
