07:27 AM ET 10.21 | Coming off a win over Northwestern, Minnesota Gophers acting head coach Tracy Claeys met with the team's beat writers on Sunday, stressing that the team's head coach won't simply appear in full any time soon. Claeys said Jerry Kill is making good progress but isn't yet ready to return from his leave of absence. Claeys guessed that Kill would watch next Saturday's game against Nebraska from the coaching box, and that Kill might even want to stop by to watch practice this week if he's feeling up to it. Those would be considered steps in his progression toward returning full-time. "In my opinion," Claeys said, "I don't anticipate it'll be all of a sudden, wham, he's back going full speed. There'll be a build up to it, and when the time's right, he'll be ready to go."

QUOTE(#2):

Why is Kill allowed to leave the Mayo clinic? Stay in there Kill and listen up. and lay off the sauce as your face is beet red and ready to pop.

Here we go. Did you see the headline that a visit from Kill inspired the Gophers before the NW game?
