08:02 AM ET 07.09 | How times have changed for Michael Oher and Sean Tuohy Jr., who have both grown dramatically in the 10 years since Oher was brought by Tuohy's family into their home outside Memphis. If those early years became the genesis of a best-selling book and a hit movie that documented Oher's transformation into a college football star at Mississippi and the No. 1 pick of the Ravens in 2009, this year takes the brothers' relationship to another place. ... Since Tuohy arrived [to play basketball at Loyola University last month], Oher seems as excited to have family nearby as Tuohy did when his parents took in Oher. The younger Tuohy is living on campus, but said he usually sees Oher "two or three times a week".

I'm glad you were able to find the real story here, DD. I work in Westminster; wish they'd bring training camp back here. The city really misses it.

The NAACp should give the Sr. Tuohy their man of the year award for what he has done for the black kid all of these years, but it won't happen because they are still color blind.

Could have just left a good story as a good story. I'm sure that Tuohy doesn't care about that (at least the Tim McGraw version).

Good story regardless of racial undertones people always want to attach. A nice family helping a disadvantaged youth into recognizing his potential as a person and a professional. Movie was well done and loved Sandra in it.

Good Humble people who have their feet on the ground, and charity in their Heart, they taught Michael the lesson of his life, he taught them that given an opportunity that guy from the Street was nobody's fool!! They both won!

1) Sandra Bullock was smokin' hot (and that lady is hot in real life too).

2) The best thing about this is that Oher will have sensible people around him helping make sure he doesn't waste his money.
