Legendary Michigan football coach Schembechler dies; Dead Schembechlers band issues statement

The annual Michigan-Ohio State game is tomorrow, but a shadow has been cast over tomorrow's match-up between the nation's top-ranked teams. Former Michigan football coach, Bo Schembechler, died this morning.

The rivalry between the two teams had always been fierce, but Schembechler, and his equally legendary counterpart from Ohio State, Woody Hayes, notched the rivalry up a few notches during their momentous games during the 1970s.

Meanwhile in Columbus, Ohio, home of Ohio State University, there is a punk band called the Dead Schembechlers. Time for a name change, I think.

But they have issued a statement on their web site:

The band wishes to say, "We are crushed to learn of the death of Bo Schembechler, OSU's most valiant foe."
