Bo Schembechler

Miss Lopez: Any chance we can find out where Mr. Moore found that great Bo Schembechler quote in hisMonday 4/1 column?

("I saw a preposterous quote by Bo Schembechler(former Michigan football coach) who was criticizingthe Fab Five for failing to win the nationalchampionship....")

To Bo's credit is a story I understand he tells on himself: When he was announced as new UM football coach at some gigantic M Club luncheon, he concluded his acceptance statment with "And now we're gonna get rid of those stripped helmets." He said the room went absolutely silent (and they still have those helmets that Fritz Crisler directed maybe 60 years ago. [Still using them in 2008, too, I think])
