"In for the Kill"
The Gophers mens football team scored a 36-18 victory over Indiana Saturday at TCF Bank Stadium, and players afterwards said they were motivated by the courage displayed by coach Jerry Kill, who kept the team focused and prepared all week despite a painful ear infection.
"Coach was battlin' it all week," said junior lineguard Lance Shuggs. "Sometimes he would just wince in pain, man, he said swallowin' was real hard and stuff. We all decided 'bout Tuesday or so that we were in it for the Kill, you know, like Coach Kill. It kinda became our theme for the week. We even had t-shirts made at Evolution."
