Auburn: All they do is win

In case you missed this one yesterday, Auburn just continues to find ways to win games.

Highlights are available in video below compliments of the worldwide leader.

 

In short, after a gritty come back effort, Mississippi State, down 7, was on the  1 1/2 yard line facing 2nd and goal with 10 seconds on the clock and no timeouts.  Dan Mullen said, "Chris made the call on the last play of the game.  We gave him two choices (pass or run). I put it in his hands and he made the right call. I like that. I like that confidence.  Chris said, 'I feel great about this run call.' It looked like he had it and the kid made a heck of an open-field tackle."

Auburn head coach Gene Chizik said, "We'd prefer to win football games a lot different than we are, but there's something to be said when you can fight down to the end when it doesn't look good and still win the game."

This is what football is all about

Jerry Kill update

At the end of yesterday's game against New Mexico State, Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill dropped to the ground and experienced a seizure.

Last night the University announced that he was in stable condition at a local hospital and expected to make a full recovery.

Kill has had seizures before, and in 2005 was diagnosed with kidney cancer.  In 2005 Kill had a seizure towards the end of a game versus Illinois State.  Kill credits that seizure with the ultimate diagnosis of his cancer, which is now in remission.  Kill's words at the time, "I was unfortunate that I did go down in a game.  It was a situation where it was a seizure, but you know what, I don't really remember it. I didn't remember much at the time. But that's how I was diagnosed with cancer. I was able to get into remission. The good Lord works in mysterious ways. I'm fortunate and blessed. He must feel like I have some work to do. That's a good thing."

Coach Kill speaks openly about his health and has previously discussed it with his administration, the coaching staff and his players.  Senior safety Kim Royston had this to say last night, "Coach Kill made us aware that he does have this condition and that it's possible that it could happen," Royston said. "But the doctor told the team that he was stable. It really shows his fieriness and his will to compete. He's a fiery guy. We've got to represent him now."

We're all hopeful Kill is able to bounce back from this one quickly and that all is well with his health.

Sunday morning update> This morning, the University has provided further update that Coach Kill is resting and recovering comfortably at the hospital and is expected to recover fully.
