Some scary news out of Detroit: Former Michigan coach Bo Schembechler is listed in critical condition after collapsing with an undisclosed ailment this morning. Radio stations in the area have reported that Schembechler had just filmed a game promo for a local ABC affiliate when he collapsed.

Schembechler, who recently expressed amusement at the Ohio State fan punk band The Dead Schembechlers, is 77 years old and recently had a pacemaker installed. He was taken to Providence Hospital at 9:30 a.m.

More on this as it comes, obviously. Yipes.

(UPDATE: Schembechler has died. As if this game needed anything else...)
