We've told you repeatedly about the Dead Schembechlers, the Ohio State fan punk band that features thrash ditties like "Bomb Ann Arbor Now" and "Chad Henne is A Motherfucking Joke." (Their official site is right here, though someone should probably mention that no one does splash pages anymore.)

Anyway, with the monstrously huge Ohio State-Michigan, No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchup less than two weeks away, it's becoming rather heated over there. How heated? Well, it appears the real Bo Schembechler — who was awfully close to becoming a dead Schembechler himself a couple of weeks ago — has weighed in on the band.

[Schembechler] reminisced about Woody Hayes, talked a little about the showdown Nov. 18 between the No. 1-ranked Buckeyes and No. 2-ranked Wolverines, and had a question, too. "Hey, have you ever heard of the 'Dead Schembechlers'?" he asked. "What the hell is that? "

Schembechler first learned about that so-named Columbus punk band the previous day when shown their Web site, featuring such songs as "Bomb Ann Arbor Now" and "We Don't Give A Damn For The Whole State of Michigan." "Holy smokes, I couldn't believe it," a smiling Schembechler said. "They're all dressed like Woody. I think it's crazy."


So, to recap the events, in chronological order:

• Bo Schembechler coaches the Michigan Wolverines for several decades.
• "Dead Schembechlers" band formed.
• Bo Schembechler almost dies.
• Bo Schembechler finds out about "Dead Schembechlers" and smiles.


We love this world sometimes.
