The Curse of Bo Tuesday, June 03, 2014 11:50 AM (permalink)

10. An end to the Curse of Bo
From the day that Bo Schembechler died in 2006, on the eve of No. 2 Michigan's 42-39 loss at its archrival, No. 1 Ohio State, the Wolverines have a record of 50-41 (.549). That's an average of 7-6, pretty much the definition of mediocrity. And while Michigan State has arisen over that period of time (64-30, .681), there's no rule that says both programs may not succeed at the same time. Although the fact that the Spartans went 13-1 last season while the other four FBS schools in the state (Michigan, Central Michigan, Western Michigan and Eastern Michigan) went 16-33 does make you wonder. Michigan needs to set aside the Curse of Bo this season, and I bet that the Wolverines do so, for state pride if nothing else.

Go Blue!!

Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.
