Young Ohio State fan names cancer 'Michigan,' beats it


Ohio State fans keep their focus on beating Michigan. Every day, in every sport. In the case of Grant Reed, the rivalry took on a new meaning during his battle with brain cancer. Reed, 12, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2011. As a Buckeyes fan -- his parents were reportedly members of the Ohio State marching band -- the young Reed decided to nickname his disease, "Michigan." (CBS Sports)
