Kill out of hospital

| Sunday, Oct. 14, 2012, 12:33 p.m.

Minnesota coach Jerry Kill was released from the hospital Sunday, a day after he had a seizure in the locker room after a loss to Northwestern.

University physician Dr. Pat Smith issued a statement saying Kill is “in excellent health.” Kill has struggled with seizures for years, including several times last season.

School officials did not provide a status for next Saturday's game at Wisconsin. But Kill has never missed a game because of seizures, and Smith said the coach plans to be back in the office Monday.

No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Oregon held the top two spots for a fourth straight week. The changes came behind them, where the Gators moved up a spot to No. 3, and the fourth-ranked Wildcats and fifth-ranked Fighting Irish jumped two places each.

At No. 25, Ohio is ranked for the first time since 1968.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
