Michigan honors Bo Schembechler … with Coke cans

Every Michigan football fan knows about longtime coach Bo Schembechler. In 21 years with the team, he went 194-48-5 (143-24-3 Big Ten) with 13 Big Ten titles, and was more or less the definition of Michigan football during his tenure there.

It just so happens that current Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh played quarterback for Schembechler, and gave a unique tribute to him via conveniently placed cans of Coca Cola in the team refrigerator.

Sure enough, a picture of said tribute was posted on Twitter by ESPN’s Dan Murphy.

This is a reference to a famous speech that Schembechler gave back in 1983, which can be seen below.


Clearly, Harbaugh has a lot of respect for his former coach and could be trying to channel him as he looks to bring Michigan football back to prosperity. With that kind of attitude, only good things can happen.

Michigan opens the season on the road against Utah on September 3.
