Boy this program really doesn't have a clue. He doesn't need to be coaching. Manageable? How? Coaching along the sidelines of college football at the D1 level is about as stressful as you can get. Guess what one of the "triggers" are for epileptic seizures? stress...dur?

Boy, the U sure hired the right guy in Thurgood Norby. He can spin it with the best of them--did he ever work for the Clintons? 5 years ago Norby would have made the I35 bridge collaspe to be a "minor traffic" inconvenience "with nothing to worry about" At the U of M he stepped into it, and now he's wondering how to get it off his shoes.....he knows Kill is a fraud but apologizes for him because his 400K+ taxpayer paid salary tells him to do so. Wow, what a sham. What a phony program.

I support Coach Kill.

Here we go again- Another AD with the complete ineptitude of Maturi. Kill's condition not a distraction? Manageable? You've got to be kidding me!

What top player is going to sign with this team when they don't know if their coach can even make it through a game with out having to be carted off the field? This is a VERY serious recruiting problem. Give him a medical disability and move on!

An improvement is not continually winning only 2 Big Ten games every year. An improvement would be when the Gophers win at least 4 Big Ten games. Every single Big Ten loss this year was an embarassment. They didn't just lose, they got clobbered.

Did he not suffer these health issues at his previous job? Has something changed? I'm all for giving a guy a chance but this can't keep happening without it impacting the program.

Teague said what he HAD to say! The Kill hire is a problem for many reasons. Wait until next year when the attendance is about 30,000. Better to fix this now and move on.

What else is he going to say? He's the one who tied us to kill for a minimum of 5 more years.

Yes, gue, something has changed! The stress level has increased 10 fold and Kill is older. Seizures become more frequent and more easily triggered with age.
