Bo, Jim Harbaugh and the Spirit of Christmas Past - Tuesday, December 24, 2013 8:59 AM


Many may scoff at the phrase “Michigan Man” and debate exactly what it means, but Bo Schembechler more than just talked about it; he lived it.
He had an impact far beyond the game; years after his passing his spirit continues to inspire his fans and former players.
Someday when Jim Harbaugh finishes in the NFL, I believe that he will return to the collegiate ranks. The NFL may be the highest level of football competition, but coaches have the greatest impact on their players at the collegiate level. It probably won’t be at Michigan, but Harbaugh is a “Michigan Man” and someday he will inspire people just as he was inspired by Schembechler.

Great article, Phil!! I thoroughly enjoyed it and can feel the enthusiasm you felt upon meeting Bo the first time! I, too, experienced the thrill of meeting Bo and then having my picture taken with him.

I will share my favorite Bo story that you and many of the older fans here will appreciate.

Thanks again as your article brought back so many great memories from the "good ole days!"
Go Blue!
