16. Bo went far beyond football
He raised millions for cancer research, especially the adrenal cancer that took his wife's life. He raised a ton of money for sick kids and at risk kids. Under his tenure as coach the UM Athletic Dept began their financial support the University's libraries and funded academic scholarships. He loved the University and he loved this town. He ran a clean program and was instrumental in working with the FBI to prevent steriod abuse in the 1980s probably saving thousands of lives. You don't have to be a football fan to appreciate what he did for this place.

I love Michigan football and I was a fan of Bo Schembecher, despite his politics (I even wrote him a letter telling him to stick with what he knew). He helped define the University of Michigan as a cut above and for that I will thank him forever.
