November 17-- Legendary college football coach Bo Schembechler has died. The winningest coach in Michigan football history collapsed Friday while taping a television show one day before Michigan's game at top-ranked Ohio State. He was 77.

During a news conference earlier this week to discuss tomorrow's
game, the seven-time Big Ten coach of the year discussed the device
that was implanted to regulate his heartbeat after he was
hospitalized last month. He said that doctors still were adjusting it.

Schembechler, who had a heart attack on the eve of his first Rose Bowl in 1970 and another one in 1987, and had undergone two heart bypass operations, did not plan to attend tomorrow's game in
Columbus, Ohio.

Schembechler compiled a 194-48-and-5 record at Michigan from
1969 to 1989-89, including an 11-9-and-1 mark against Ohio State.
His record in 26 years of coaching was 234-64-and-8.
