I can't even fathom this. Absolutely speechless. The timing is just surreal.

Wow. Probably the first "recognizable" coach that made an impression on me at a young age and I grew up in Kentucky (Adolph Rupp was still the most famous coach around these parts for those of you not familiar with UK Basketball).

Rest in Peace Coach. I like both teams (again I'm from Kentucky), but this has tipped the scales. Go Blue!

It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.

Shock. Speechless. I can't think or anything. I heard the news in between classes, and I just couldn't focus on anything during that second class. This is beyond surreal.

Bo has done so much for the Michigan program that to express in words how revered this man is would be impossible. With so many other greats and legends from Michigan's past gone, Bo was the titan still around. He was there for '97. He was gonna be there for this year. To not think of Bo stalking the Wolverine sidelines, of not being involved, of not being here to be that tangible piece of Michigan tradition that people could reach out and talk's just.....I can't do it.

Tomorrow I'll be worked up into a frenzy for the Game of the Century, but today is going to be a quiet day of attempting to get to grips with this powerful loss.

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

The big question stemming from this is whether the Wolverines will be depressed, or be inspired. Knowing what Bo means to that town, I'm firmly betting on the latter.

Go with the grace of God, Bo.

And go Blue.

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

*wipes tear* That was...awesome. Better than the version I wrote in 2000 for my indy fed...wish that was still online somewhere. Rock on, fellow citizen of Cheesehead Nation.
