Gophers Coach Jerry Kill Collapses On The Field

With around 30 seconds left in the game and the Gophers driving, Gophers head coach Jerry Kill has collapsed on the sideline, and there is concern among the players and fans for his safety.

He was not hit, and apparently just fell to the ground and started convulsing.

A stretcher has been brought over and he is being attended to by trainers and paramedics.  They are currently administering an IV to him, and he has an oxygen mask over his nose and mouth.  It is being reported by the television announcers that he has been put onto a stretcher and will be transported to the hospital via ambulance.

TCF Bank Stadium is so quiet you can hear a pin drop, and players are weeping and holding hands, as are many fans.

This is a very serious situation, and we will update you as soon as we find out more.

Please keep Coach Kill and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
