Bo Schembechler: one of Michigan's most legendary coaches. In 1969, when he proclaimed to his players that "those who stay will be champions", he meant it. Of the 140 football players that showed up for that first training camp, 75 stayed on. And they did become champions. They won the Big Ten that year. Since that first year, every Michigan football player that was coached by Bo for 4 years earned at least one Big Ten Conference title.
