From the Publisher:

"I took so much from Bo when I became a head coach: 1. Winning by the rules is the most important thing. If you cheat, that equates to losing. 2. Work harder than anyone else. If you did it harder and you did it right, you are going to be more successful than your opponent. 3. Make decisions on just two criteria: Will it help us win? Is it good for the team? Everything else is irrelevant and a distraction." --Jim Harbaugh, from the foreword

"I swear it was like Bo was in our huddle. He knew everything we were going to do. When did I get over it? I never did." --Rex Kern, Ohio State quarterback

"He thought of himself as a cross between chief executive officer of the corporation of Michigan football and the patriarch of a family. He was always demanding, but at the same time he took an interest in you and remembered the small details of everyone's life and family." --Stan Edwards, Michigan running back

"He was the best coach coaching anything in college sports." --Bobby Knight

From the Inside Flap:

What are your favorite memories of the University of Michigan's football program under the coaching direction of Bo Schembechler? The 13 Big Ten championships? The 17 bowl games? Or the fact that in his 26 years of coaching, the Wolverines never had a losing season?

In I Remember Bo, read recollections from some of Bo's most famous players, such as Dan Dierdorf, Jamie Morris, and Jim Harbaugh. Go inside the huddle of the Michigan Wolverines, into their locker room, and onto the sideline. Peek into the private world of the players and their relationships with their legendary leader. Remembered as a man who made as many sacrifices for his team as he made demands of his players, Bo often masked his loyalty, generosity, and compassion with a gruff demeanor. But Bo gave Michigan and his teams his all, as his success record and the voices of his players attest.

Read about how Bo's tough persona played out with other coaches, including Lloyd Carr, Bobby Bowden, Ara Parseghian, Cam Cameron, John Robinson, Bobby Knight, and others. Discover the impact that Bo's coaching style and philosophy had on college coaches across the country, including his fiercest rival and former mentor, Ohio State's Woody Hayes. Entangled in a "10-Year War," the competition between the two teams was so intense, and their respective records so impressive, that the winner of the annual Michigan-Ohio State game would also inevitably win the Big Ten title. As Bo said about Michigan's legendary feud with Ohio, "If that was war, you can sign me up anytime."

Included within I Remember Bo are some of the fondest memories, funniest stories, and best firsthand accounts of what it was like to play for, and against, one of the best college football coaches of the 20th century.
