I can't believe that this awesome kid would pose with Urban Meyer, the scum of the Earth who doesn't care about anyone but himself, for a picture...
All jokes aside, Grant just brightened my day tenfold.  Stories like this make you want to live each to the fullest.

You will be in my prayers for a full and lasting recovery, Grant. I've never wanted Michigan beaten so badly before.

This might be the most important time ever to beat Michigan! Great story, great kid, I'm gonna print this one out & hang it in the office so I have a reminder of something that really matters.

Get busy living.

This will inspire our guys even more this year. I mean, playing with a chip on our shoulder already, The Chase, Grant Reed, NCAA 14's cover, I mean we have a TON of motivation this year. I don't expect any half stepping. I hope we hang 50+ on everyone this year. #NoMercy

One of the best things I have ever read in my life. Absolutely amazing.

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Wishing Grant a long and happy life.
But if he does stray from the path of the straight and narrow, we know it will now be Urban's fault.

Wow. Just amazing. His fight he showed during this ordeal will lead to future success in his life and I wish him the best

That is very neat. What a smart kid. I'm very glad you shared this with us here at 11w. What a great story. 

Bury me in my away jersey, with my buckeye blanket. A diehard who died young. Rip dad.

Outstanding!  I'll be pulling for this kid to beat Michigan more than the games itself!!  Great kid.

This little guy and his family are from my old home town of Bellville, Ohio.  His dad (Troy) and I went to HS together.  This was such a sad story at first but now it's all turning around.  It was cool as hell to see Coach Meyer, Etienne Sabino and Frank Kangah visit Grant back when he was real sick.  Here's an additional article from our area paper about the story.  I love this kid!  And now, just may be some of you all will see why around where I grew up in central Ohio, we don't like TTUN;-)

This part brought tears to my eyes this morning...if you have kids you know why.

“He’s loved Ohio State since he was a baby,” Troy said. “(My wife) Denise and I met in the marching band at Ohio State and I proposed to her at the OSU/Michigan game in 1994. We just came off the field and I got down on one knee and proposed.”
Every Ohio State game day since, the Reed family spends the day watching the game and celebrating.
“The world pretty much stops on that day,” Troy said. “It’s sort of a rule that the kids have to stay and watch at home, and we have all kind of junk food and just spend family time together.”

"I want a hungry team. I want a team that can't wait to get out there. I want an angry team! You're the Ohio State Buckeyes. You're an angry football team. You're a hungry football team and I'm proud to be your coach." UFM

I thought this was classy of Michigan to do

Grant should lead the Buckeyes out of the tunnel at the Big Hose this year! And, yeah, have to admit, Jordan, that WAS classy of TTUN.
