Mike "Pup Dog" Ellis is one of those Alabama Crimson Tide fans you know who eats, sleeps and breathes Alabama football. You can imagine how big of a thrill Alabama’s national championship season has been for him. You probably cannot imagine how big of a thrill for him it was to get a surprise visit from one of the biggest stars from that team, defensive lineman Terrence Cody. "I was in tears right off the bat when he walked in through here. By no means did I expect Terrence to be coming through the door. It was just kind of more than we could stand at the time. He was smiling the whole time," Ellis said. Ellis is battling a life-threatening cancer, and though he was not expected to make it through last September, he continues to fight on to this day.
