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)
