We are all overjoyed about the Buckeyes big win last Saturday in Dallas. And just as overjoyed about the Browns big win last night against the Jets.

Then life intervenes.

In a very sobering piece of news, the Golden Gophers of the University of Minnesota lost a member of their family when former RT Nick Connelly succumbed to Burkitt's Disease on Wednesday. He had walked away from the game last year due to concussion issues.

Nick was just TWENTY TWO years old.

May you rest in peace.
