Originally written July 22, 2013 on Diehardsport:
Michigan Wolverines Head Coach Brady Hoke came through and showed why he is one of the classiest coaches out there and got four tickets for Grant Reed and his family to the Ohio State-Michigan this year.  For those of you that don’t remember, Grant is the 12-year-old boy that beat cancer and named his cancer “Michigan.” According to NBC, Grant didn’t hesitate to accept the offer: Grant’s father, Troy, said his son did not hesitate to answer the coach. “He gave a very clear yes—he’s very excited.” Troy said. Hoke did not say where the tickets will be in the stadium, but Troy says it’s no big deal. “Sad to say, in Michigan Stadium there’s no bad seat.” “There was no way we could have pulled off getting tickets otherwise.” Troy said. The Rotary Club of Jackson, MI has offered to pay for the Reed family’s hotel stay. Troy says Hoke told Grant that he needs to keep on working hard to beat Michigan and that the two made some small talk on the phone. “It’s getting hard to keep my dislike for them, because they’ve been so classy and unbelievable to us.” Said Troy, who played in the OSU marching band along with his wife, Denise. “But it won’t be hard to cheer for the Buckeyes in November.” This is the best part about rivalries, when the classy members of each side outshine the idiots who yell the loudest.
