Some things are bigger than football, and there was a tremendous example of it Saturday night.


Following Michigan State's 35-11 win over heated rival Michigan, both bands took the field and formed #chadtough, the hashtag created in support of Chad Carr, the 4-year-old son of former Michigan quarterback Jason Carr and grandson of former Michigan coach Lloyd Carr who was recently diagnosed with an aggressive, inoperable brain tumor.

It doesn't get much better than this.

Seriously. We have two schools that don't like each other coming together to support something that is so much more important than any game, any rivalry, pretty much anything. That's excellent.

The only thing that could have made this tribute better would be to do it pregame or at halftime, when the stadium was full.

Lloyd Carr, who came to Michigan in 1980 as a defensive assistant, compiled a 122-40 record as Michigan's head coach (1995-2007).
