As someone who has had seizures like Coach Kills's I can concur that I would actually be shocked if he doesn't coach this week. The aftermath of a normal seizure bugs you for just a day or two usually. I'm guessing that they are playing it slow and safe because he is a public figure and this happened with such high public visibility. But I'm also guessing that Kill feels ready to be out there tomorrow. By the way, Mr. Kill, I know what it is like to feel "embarrassed" by having public seizures. Thank you for putting a human face on it. I have no doubt that in the coming days in weeks this situation and your recovery from it will help in the process of more people becoming educated about what seizures really are.

So we hired a no name guy that might keel over at any time. That is not smart with the history of this team! I am laughing at all you people with rose colored glasses who thought the Gophers were going to beat New Mexico St. Get realistic please!

I have nothing but admiration and respect for the people who face their afflictions and pursue their dreams regardless. Likewise, I admire and respect people who can commit so fervently to what they do. I resepct Jerry Kill for his passion and commitment and hope he can find a balance that also protects his health. Finally, I also respect true U of M Gopher fans who find joy in the event of Gopher football. Yes, I'd like the team to win every game but seeing them play hard, smart and with passion is all I need to keep coming back.

I know everyone has heard this before. We need to give coach Kill some time. The team he inherited has little talent. Coach Saban couldn't win 2 games with these players. Despite what Brewster says he DID NOT recruit very well. This team may win 2 games (I hope)

I've got nothing but respect and hope for Kill. On the other hand, I don't think Maturi could guess right on what time to go to the bathroom

This Smith guy looks [and sounds] believeable!

Everyone is pulling for coach Kill and hopes for a quick and safe recovery. That said a fan fron N.M. state said he and others didn't think their team could beat UMD, let alone the Gophers. How could they not score on the 3 and later on the 1? Big option QB could'nt get them in? Poor coaching, the game should not have been close, which would have taken pressure off the terrible defense.

Ya gotta love Jerry Kill. He will turn around this mess of a program handed to him by Brew. However, Markweese Gray definitely AIN'T the guy that should be QB... He has already proven that.

I'm happy for you, that a guy having a seizure on the sidlines would make you laugh, can only imagine how happy you were when MSU's coach had a heart attack. Oh yeah, 27-24.
