Great article, Jon. My child with epilepsy is also inspired by Coach Kill. I'm rooting for him to succeed as Gophers coach - for the University, for Gophers fans, and for people with epilepsy.

Coach Kill is an inspiration to many, with or without epilepsy. His attitude toward his kids is, without question, inspiring. As a long, long time Gopher fan (and a high school and college sports fan in general) I could not care less whether the Gophers ever contend for a national title. It would be nice, but not necessary. Coach Kill will teach his students to win in life as well as on the field. I am proud to say I am a U of M alum and Jerry Kill is our football coach. Go Gophers.

Dear Coach Kill, Just Win Baby. Al Davis didn't care about much else. Neither should we.
