07:24 AM ET 10.09 | At some point, the question may revolve around what the Gophers would do if Jerry Kill can't get his seizures under control -- but that time isn't now. University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler is concerned about [Kill's] health, but he says the Gophers football coach should be given a chance to lead his team while getting his epilepsy under control. "There are thousands of people with epilepsy that have full and productive lives and careers," Kaler told the Pioneer Press on Tuesday. "I think Jerry deserves a chance to get his meds adjusted and have that happen. We believe he's got great medical care and that's what will happen." Kill did not travel to Ann Arbor, Mich., with his team Friday because he felt ill. He planned to travel the next morning but stayed home after suffering a seizure.

May the Good Lord Bless you, Coach Kill. I'll add that Kill himself said that he'd step down from the Minny HC job if he felt he had to. By all accounts in Minneapolis, he's done a great job with the football program up there. Wishing him the best.

Jerry Kill is a fricking national embarrassment to Minnesota football and should resign. Do you realize how easy it is to recruit against Minnesota?? Kill squirming and wringling on the ground frothing at the mouth ain't cool especially if front of national TV football fans and recruits. Dump the embarrassment of Kill immediately.

If you knew anything about people with disabilities, or Employment Law with respect to dealing with a person with disabilities you'd not make such a statement.

How many of us must tell you how many times to keep your politics off the boards and threads? Even dyed-red-from-childhood types disapprove of your incessant political sniping. Ween yourself of this addiction. You're coming across as imbalanced.
