Today on the Valenti and Foster show (with Jamie Samuelsen sitting in for a vacationing Valenti) — the topic came up about who has the better legacy in college sports: Bo Schembechler or Tom Izzo?
Schembechler coached Michigan from 1969-1989 where his record was 194-48-5. He coached the Wolverines to nine Rose Bowl appearances while winning two of them. The Wolverines also appeared in the Orange Bowl, Gator Bowl, Sugar Bowl and Fiesta Bowl. The highest a Michigan team ranked under Schembechler was 2nd in the 1985 season when the team went 10-1-1 and won the Fiesta Bowl.
Izzo has coached Michigan State 1995 to the present, and led the Spartans to a 412-168 record. Izzo’s teams have reached the Final Four 6 times, winning the National Championship in the 1999-2000 season.
After looking at each coaches’ resume and what they have done for their university, who has the better legacy? Vote below.
