Over the past couple of weeks I have been doing some self-admitted 'browsing' of the tenure of Bump Elliot. At first glance Coach Elliot had five losing seasons, some 5 and 6 win seasons (9 game schedule) and a 8 and 9 win seasons respectively. Ohio State had a 50-14 win against Bumps '68 team which caused him to resign shortly after. Don Canham hired Bo. Bo and Canham were both quoted that they were "loyal" to Bump and "supported" Coach Schembechler during his early tenure.
I was not around during this time and I am curious to know the perspective from someone who was there or has historical references during the Bump to Bo transition.
Common knowledge tells us Bo was an outsider, was he initially accepted?
Any story, fact or comment would be gladly accepted to help me fill in this void of Michigan Football History.
