Great write up, my favorite part of the article:
My relationship with Schembechler didn’t start on as warm and fuzzy a note as that with Ufer. In 1976, my job at WJR took a twist when I was moved from my role as an investigative news reporter to the station’s sports department. The newspapers had carried a story on the switch and the first time I went to Michigan Stadium to cover one of Bo’s games, I was introduced to the coach afterward. While shaking hands with the legend, he looked me in the eye and said sternly, “Beckmann, huh? So you’re the investigative reporter. Well there’s nothing to investigate around here, you got it?”
Ed-S: Thread about Beckmann locked becauce politics. Who could have seen that coming, eh? (article is non-political, also doesn't say why he stepped away).
