Passed this morning at 87. FWIW I met coach Bruce several years ago when I got invited to play golf in the Scarlet & Grey golf classic. I was wearing a Michigan polo (so I was obviously loved by all the OSU players that day) and on one hole coach Bruce and I were waiting to tee off and we both were having a beer while we waited.
I told him "hey coach - I was at your last game rooting obviously for Michigan. You were down 14-0 and came back to win. I thought you got hosed by OSU so it didnt bother me as much that we ended up losing that day."
He looked at me for a second and then barked loudly. "IT WAS 13-0. I REMEMBER EVERY GOD DAMN PLAY OF THAT GAME." Then he stopped for a second and said softly "you know - Bo told me that was the only game he didnt mind losing to OSU. I've never forgotten that."
He was our rival but I respected the hell out of him. RIP coach Bruce - say hi to Bo for us today.
