Bo Schembechler, the most beloved coach of the Michigan Wolverines, passed away yesterday on the eve of today's big game with the Buckeyes. Even though he was born in Ohio and coached at Ohio State under Woody Hayes, I didn't like Bo because he coached "that team from up north". But I did admire and respect him.
I remember someone from my days in business saying that whether someone likes you or not is up to them. Whether they respect you is entirely up to you. I respected Bo. I admired the way he lived with passion and became one of the best at what he loved to do, coach college football.
To you, Bo. Thanks for showing us what it meant to live our lives fully.
May we take that same passion and put it into making our own dreams come true, and be remembered at our passing.
