Bo, Woody coin to be used before Ohio State-Michigan game


ANN ARBOR - Bo and Woody will play a role in Saturday's showdown between Michigan and Ohio State.

A commemorative coin featuring legendary Wolverines coach Bo Schembechler and iconic Ohio State coach Woody Hayes will be used in the pregame coin flip at Michigan Stadium.

Schembechler died a day before Ohio State beat Michigan in last year's game in Columbus, Ohio. Hayes died in 1987.

The coin, which is being produced by a company owned by former Michigan quarterback John Wangler, offers a unique way to honor the anniversary of Schembechler's death, Wangler said.

The former Wolverines QB said the rivalry was a great one before Schembechler and Hayes walked the sidelines, "but they were the ones who really took it to the next level. They put their stamp on it, and they were the ones who made it special," he told The Ann Arbor News.
