    For the College Football fans out there the world has lost a legend on the eve of the Biggest of the Big Game.

    Bo Schembechler passed away at 11:42 am this morning in Detroit. I must say I am just blown away. I actually cried when I found out. I had to call my sister (69mach1) and break the news to her. Bo is a legend in this state and for college football all together. But to have it happen the day before the biggest game between OSU and MI ever, it's just eerie. Bo and Woody Hayes made that rivalry what it is today.
    His cardiologist was on tv earlier and said that Bo had actually had an appt with him yesterday but postponed it so he could address the team before they left for Columbus.

    Bless you Bo and may you shine your greatness down on us tomorrow while we fight the good fight.

    I thought it was cute too. I was cracking up at that commerical on ESPN that the guy jumps out the car when she says she was born in Michigan and says GO BLUE! That's just hilarious, but that would honest to god happen ! We really do hate each other THAT much! Did you look at my myspace page? I found some other good one's there too.

    Your neice has been taught to say Go Blue now and when I say "who do we hate?" she says, "OHIO STATE!"
    I know, I'm bad. But hey, I gotta make sure she is brought up right!

    If I have any extra money, I'll try and find you a Michigan shirt to wear. HOpefully I can find you a nice National Title winner shirt!

    I don't know, I think they are waiting until after the game to make any arrangements. It would be cool if he were

    married in the Stadium somewhere.

    Lord knows the place is big enough. You know actually they have 1 seat at the Big House reserved for Fritz Crisler? The capacity right now is 107,501. I'm betting it will be 107,502 from now on.
