Unbelieveably inspiring story about this young man who endured losing his mother at the age of 7, growing up with an alcoholic father, and overcoming homelessness on his way to gaining admission to Michigan's Nursing school and competing for a walk-on spot this coming year.

 

Just read the damn article.

Both OSU and MSU will be honoring Chad Carr with helmet stickers supporting the ChadTough foundations, per the Detroit News.

A classy gesture by both programs - a tip of the hat to both.

Sean Penn Can Help You Escape Bolivia

Sean Penn Can Help You Escape Bolivia

Currently stuck in Bolivia? Sean Penn can help you out with that:

It's a smoke and mirrors saga fit for Hollywood, complete with a major movie star, murky reports of a kidnapping and an American fugitive sneaking across the border of a nation unfriendly to the U.S.

Little is being revealed about Jacob Ostreicher's flight from house arrest in Bolivia and into the care of actor-activist Sean Penn.

The New York businessman arrived in the U.S. on Monday after an ordeal that began more than two years ago when he was jailed as part of a money laundering probe into a rice-growing venture.

No one is saying how the 54-year-old fled, or who helped him.

"You'll never find out," Peter Hakim, president emeritus of the Inter-American Dialogue in Washington, said Tuesday. If the U.S. was involved, "it was done through layers and layers of cover," he said.

Not OT, because Bolivia, obviously.

on Saturday as long as we stick together. No one man can win a war. And there is always a loser in every fight. But as long as Michigan fans stay true to the Maize and Blue, it will be ok. Some of the greatest legends of history were brave warriors going down in defeat. Do not disparage our men in blue no matter what happens. If someone around you boos, kick them in the nuts. If we stand by them, our men will deliver us a perfomance to be proud of, win or lose. And if we win, it will be the best of days.
