BTN's Samantha Goldwasser brings you Thursday afternoon's Big Ten Blast video update. What is the Big Ten Blast? Find out right now. In this afternoon's update we have news on Minnesota coach Jerry Kill, who has not yet returned to the team following a seizure on the sideline at the end of the Gophers' last game.

Defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys said he still expects Kill to coach the team for Saturday's game against Miami of Ohio and that he'd be "surprised" if he's not there. Claeys said Wednesday he spoke with Kill for 40 minutes about the game plan the night before. Claeys said Kill remained hospitalized, but that he sounded "roaring and ready to go," according to the AP.
