I've also had a little seizure problem the last couple of years that I now take medication for. I continue to function well in a full time (50+ hours/week) professional position. The naysayers need to leave Coach Kill alone in regards to his own personal medical situation. You can laugh about this now, but the other football teams/coaching staffs in the Big Ten recognize that the Gophers have finally got a head coach and staff that have a chance to improve their program. Quite frankly they're not happy about it. Kill 'em all!

From what's happening in all the other major B1G programs right now, I'm glad we at least have a coach to be proud of. Even losing, watching the Gophs has been more fun that in the last 5 years.

Good Grief!! More seizures?? The UofM football program is a complete toxic culture! 50 years and counting.

Can Jerry Kill drive a car? The reason that I ask is I thought that people that have seizures can't, and if so that would be a problem for someone that is trying to recruit.

THE EXISTENCE OF THIS PROBLEM WILL MAKE RECRUITING DIFFICULT. I WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF THE NEW SEVEN YEAR CONTRACT RESULTED FROM PEOPLE ACTING ON BEHALF OF RECRUITS WERE CONTACTING THE UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATORS ABOUT KILL'S HEALTH ISSUES WHICH BECAME NOTORIOUS. THE PRESENT TEAM PLAYED MUCH BETTER AFTER THE NEW CONTRACT WAS PUBLICIZED TO TRY TO SHOW THE PUBLIC AND THE GOPHER FOOTBALL PLAYERS THAT KILL WILL KEEP HIS JOB. UNFORTUNATLY, YOU MAY FIND NEW RECRUITS MAY FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE TO DEAL WITH KILL'S HEALTH ISSUES AND GO ELSEWHERE.

True or False, since the deep thinks had Mason fired 5 years ago, we are averaging nearly 9 losses per season?????

There is no story here, so let's move on. As a person with seizure disorder myself (as does my son), I understand what he goes through. People always make a bigger deal of it than it really is. Of course, if it repeatedly happens within a short period of time (several within a day or 2, which doesn't appear to be his case) than it's more serious, but unless it really detracts from his job, which it does not appear to happen, leave it alone.
