    Bo Schembechler rushed to hospital

    Former University of Michigan football coach Bo Schembechler was transported to Providence Hospital after a medical emergency Friday morning, a Southfield Police Department official has said.

    Schembechler is currently listed in critical condition with an undisclosed ailment, according to Providence Hospital officials, according to a WDIV Local 4 report.

    Detective John Harris said Southfield officers escorted an ambulance carrying Schembechler to Providence Hospital at about 9:30 a.m. Medical personnel were called to WXYZ-TV in Southfield after Schembechler apparently suffered a medical problem.

    Last month, the 77-year-old Schembechler had a pacemaker and defibrillator installed after he had dizziness and other symptoms while taping his weekly television show.

    Just came on TV that he's dead. Saw an interview with him a couple days ago where he said he thought he was a goner when he collapsed a couple weeks ago.

    I sit here and am just fucking numb... I worshipped him as a fan, I covered his team as an adult ...

    I didn't cry when my grandmothers died, but I am now...

    Don't know how many interviews he gave after Wednesday, but I think I'm going to hang on to the recording I have from that day. He had some interesting things to say.
