Podcast: Reaction to Jerry Kill situation
By Adam Rittenberg
If you missed "Outside the Lines" on Thursday, be sure and check out the following podcast, which looks at the reaction to Jerry Kill's latest game-day seizure and the impact epilepsy has on those in the sports world. Kill has suffered four seizures during his 22 games as Gophers coach -- all at TCF Bank Stadium -- and some believe after his latest seizure that he should no longer occupy such a high-profile position.
Former presidential adviser David Axelrod, who has a daughter who suffers from epilepsy, joined the program, along with former Minnesota linebacker Keanon Cooper, neurologist Tony Alessi and former NFL players Alan Faneca and Samari Rolle, who both played the game with epilepsy. They spoke about the condition and the way to approach those who have it.
