Just in time for the polar vortex of death, here’s what the doctor ordered.  How about a look at a shirtless General Bo out for a run in the summer of 1976, as featured in the Sunday Magazine?Bo is cut! Thanks to the keen eye of Dr. Sap for spotting that on eBay, up for bid right now.   I assume this was a product of the Detroit News.

Bo’s in tip-top shape after having open heart surgery in late spring of ‘76.   Here’s Schembechler sitting down with Bob Ufer (also thanks to Sap) not long after that Magazine cover was released, just prior to the opener against Wisconsin.   Bo talks about his surgery, his level of fitness and a little bit about the 1976 season as his Wolverines were ranked #1 heading into the campaign:

Go Bo!

P.S. I love Bo’s adidas kicks — not unlike the lucky McNasty’s I wore to the BWW Bowl?

  1. Interesting…Bo’s sneakers are the same shade of blue as the Pumas that Dr. Billy Taylor (who had a birthday yesterday) wore. And look at Bo’s stride! Very strong, not overstriding…solid technique.

  2. No matter what photo I look at of Bo, I simply miss him. Thanks Greg.

  3. Thanks for posting this. Loved listening to the Ufer interview.
