Bo: We Don't Need Notre Dame

How does Bo Schembechler really feel about Michigan's series with Notre Dame? "We don't need Notre Dame. They need us more than we need them." The former Wolverine coach, now 77, was just getting started. "Hell, we're playing all these Big Ten teams. When Penn State came into the league, then we should do everything we can to get this Notre Dame series over with. Now that's the way I feel." Schembechler, right, with former Notre Dame counterpart Lou Holtz, wasn't finished. "I would rather have an intersectional game than a Midwest game. Play Southern Cal. I don't care. Play Texas ... somebody like that. But not Notre Dame." Bo also questioned why Ohio State was regarded as the No. 1 team entering this season. "I find that hard to understand. What it tells you is the Big Ten is not as strong this year as it usually is because how can a team lose nine out of 11 starters on defense and be picked to win the national championship? I find that hard to believe."
