07:23 AM ET 10.07 | On Jerry Kill's immediate horizon is a return to the football offices in Minneapolis. One day after [Kill] had another setback in his eight-year battle with epilepsy, missing his first full game as Gophers coach, there were no hints of a coming end to his tenure. Kill has said he'd walk away if seizures continued to force him from games, but after missing Saturday's 42-13 loss at Michigan, he was expected back to work soon inside the Gophers football offices. ... Gophers athletics director Norwood Teague continued to voice support for Kill at Michigan Stadium. "It's unfortunate that [Saturday's seizure] happened, this timing, but we're driving on," Teague said. "I mean, I see improvement in this program every day, and it's because of Jerry and his staff and the kids they're bringing in."

I commend Teague for his outspoken support. He could easily use some weasel words to give himself some wiggle room at the end of the season. Kill is a good coach. Don't discriminate because he has a manageble conditon.

I'll bet the Minnie football program has contingency plans and has practiced them for times when Coach Kill has a seizure. Probably not as big a deal for them as it is the media.

He will probably get some type of medical disability settlement from the university in the next few months.
This is a life threatening situation, needs to be resolved.

This one time, at band camp, the other campers stripped me naked, hung me from a tree, and pelted me with spaghetti and paper plates from the trash cans. I became aroused, and the kids laughed and screamed and ridiculed me.

TMI.

Kills face is redder than his jacket. Is Kill an alcoholic?

Each comment you make is more rude and ignorant than the last I think.

I've heard his condition is exacerbated by stress. Maybe his doctors need to adjust his meds during football season.

The Uni needs to walk him into an Emeritus position. His situation is too much of a distraction, but he has value to the organization and wants to contribute.

That's very funny, but its humor seems to have evaded its target.
