The administration has no clue how to run a Big Ten football program. Rah!

Love this. I've met Pres. Kahler. Very smart, down to earth guy. Making the right call here. A virtual "in your face" to Jim Souhan. To the "get rid of Kill" bunch. Remember, if you want people fired for getting sick...it might be you next. I LOVE that the U is seeing this thing through. And Minnesota will be exemplary to the nation in doing so. Some things are just more important than the "next win".

I do support the stand the U administration is taking with coach Kill. I also think he should be held accountable for his record, which is not very good when it counts(4-14). It's a great story about a coach battling Epilepsy, but in the end he needs to be judged by his win-loss record. Toss this year out, but at the end of next year a decision needs to be made. The progress of the program & that's counted in Big Ten Conference wins, not wins against the patsies on the schedule.

If the Gophers lose their remaining games Kill and staff will be 4 -20 after 3 years. Healthy or not healthy that is 'good-by' time in college football. I predict Kill will save the U the trouble and step down.

Of course the U will continue to support Coach Kill, but eventually this year Coach Kill will make the decision himself and step down. The Coach Kill era will end, with less Conf. wins than Brewster. What's next for this rodeo clown show called Gopher Football?

How long does it take to figure out what the best medication is for coach Kill? They said last year this was all under control and they have him on the right medication now. Apparently not.

Any ideas on how recruiting is going now that the "head recruiter" is relaxing at home? Actually, this story is a positive sign, because I remember a long time ago, when Pat Haden said he was "100% behind Lane Kiffen at USC."

@kev5115--good thinking. If you were "an epileptologist from MINCEP Epilepsy Care, a level-four treatment center in Minneapolis" and also a "University of Minnesota Professor of Pharmacy and Neurology and a former President of the American Epilepsy Society," would seek out any recognition in this case? I guess maybe, when it is all the University of Minnesota gets associated with.

Being a diabetic myself and having lost consciness (sp) a number of times, I react much better to the people who support me (like the U is doing for Kill) and it makes me work harder to fight this disease as opposed to when people who have no knowledge of diabetis who keep telling me I am doing wrong. I would guess Kill works harder than most people realize because he knows his AD and President are behind him. Gooid luck Coach Kill!!!

The doc could stop the seizures tomorrow by giving Kill a huge dose of meds, but he'd be so groggy, it would be hard to work. That's the art in the science; sort of like treating high blood pressure, enough to control the condition without disabling the patient. They deal with this trade-off all the time.
