This is such a great experience for the athletes and to share their time with these special people.

Having a sibling that had special needs, this makes me appreciate the time given to make these folks feel really worthy and appreciated. 

They know they are different than others and are much more aware of what is going on around them than what some "normal" folks think.

God bless those athletes who took the time to make special memories for these really "special people".

Those are just a few of the names that come to mind.

I want a t-shirt or sweatshirt with a list of names to go with that "worst state ever" they wear up north with all the names of Buckeyes who went up there to coach or play.

Of course you would have to have many editions as there are so many who have done this.

As I watched the TSUN play Wisky on Saturday, many times during the game, 40% of the players on the floor were from Ohio, 20% for each team.

Have been watching the Buckeyes-Hoosiers on Classic this AM from February, 1991, double overtime win by the Bucks,

What a difference with the game being played in St. John's area.

I know the game will be played in Bloomington, but this was a nice memory and maybe will be a lucky omen.

Thanks so much for noting this important moment in time.  It is important for this history and the people involved to be recognized.

I often wonder if young athletes are fully aware of how much later in time the SEC schools had integrated teams. (I'm looking at you Bama).

Know things were not great for athletes on integrated teams back in the day but at the very least they had the opportunity to play and change football forever.
