Former Ohio State linebacker Cie Grant is one of the most beloved Buckeyes in school history - and really for two reasons. One - his pressure on Miami (FL) quarterback Ken Dorsey during the final play of the 2003 Fiesta Bowl led to Ohio State winning the national title. And two - during the ensuing championship celebration, he sang an absolutely beautiful version of the school's famous song 'Carmen Ohio.'

Well, ahead of Monday's national title game, Grant has reappeared. Ohio State released a video of Grant singing 'Carmen Ohio' yet again - this time as a special rendition for the big game.

If Ohio State fans somehow weren't already pumped up for the game, this probably did the trick.
