Kill, in particular, remembered when the Gophers beat Nebraska in 2013 at TCF Bank Stadium, their first win over the Huskers since 1960. Kill, while recovering from his battle with seizures, watched the game from the press box. He rode the elevator down to field level with Hartman afterwards, and recalled how happy Hartman was.
