Bo Schembechler dead at 77

As if The Game needed more subtext...

For the second time in the past week, Bo collapsed while taping a show to discuss the game, this time, Bo was pronounced dead on the day before the most important matchup of the rivalry he helped create, Michigan at Ohio State.

As the picture above shows, Bo liked to carry a big stick, and he earned it as Michigan's all-time victory leader. I wonder if the Dead Schembechlers feel guilty? Or will they find a way to stay classy given the revelation of the new truth of their name?
