Keep coaching Coach Kill as long as your docs are okay with it and it's what you want to do. People are making too big a deal about it affecting recruiting. If a kid doesn't want to come to the U because of your disorder then we would rather have someone else anyway, someone who lives in the 21st century and not the middle ages. The team is getting better. You are a great example to people of all ages to not let a disorder stop you.

Like you say Souhan, "No one knows if Kill or anyone else can.........." So, just leave it alone, will you. Kill will figure it out without your biased so-called 'reporting'.

This is the article you should have written the first time around, Jim.

And so goes the endless merry-go-round of dread and shame that accompanies elite-level sport in Minnesota, with the exception of the overachieving Lynx. Rarely in one place do so many major league level teams stink, or do so at both pro and college levels; even more rarely do the efforts to fix such problems fail so spectacularly and so often. I like Jerry Kill -- he's a class act, he knows how to turn around a football program, he has a loyal team of assistants and he's not looking for the next gig -- and an immediate six months of medical leave would determine whether he can overcome this completely while keeping his methods intact. Tonight, however, the comments here will drift either toward saccharine well wishes or spiteful nihilism...neither of which serves any constructive purpose.

Souhan's first column - which most readers read into what they wanted to - is more relevant now than two weeks ago.

Sorry Souhan, you lost your credibility on your 1st shot. Jerry kill needs to win football games no doubt, but you are more distracting to this issue then his epilepsy ever could be.

Kill should step down. Sadly, he can no longer do his job. Every game like this that happens more recruits walk away. I like the guy a lot, love his style and wish this wasn't the case. Would be better for all parties.

Souhan, Perfect column. Ab-so-lute-ly perfect. I cannot believe that Coach Kill will not remedy the situation in the appropriate manner. If you will notice, there is nothing---nothing---in the air about this. Dead. Silence. The next voice you hear.................................................................

As unfortunate of situation as it is, it's time to face reality people.

Norwood - make a call and prove you're no Joe Maturi. Spend the money to get a big-time coach. A Lou Holtz-type hire.
