Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament: Bud Grant Advances

Darryl Norenberg-USA TODAY Sports

Steve Jordan could very well be the greatest tight end ever to put on the purple and gold. But when you get matched up against one of the greatest coaches of not just his time, but any time, you're going to have a pretty rough go of it, and that's what happened in this second round match-up in our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament.

Bud Grant cruised to a relatively easy victory over Steve Jordan in their match-up to punch his ticket to the Sweet 16. When the votes were finally counted, Grant had received 177 "recs" from our readers, while Jordan got just 16 "recs." The name of Bud Grant is synonymous with Vikings football for pretty much every generation of fans, and he certainly deserves to be at this spot in the competition.

Coach Grant will be staring at a pretty tough match-up in the third round of our tournament, as he will be facing off against either wide receiver Anthony Carter or defensive end Chris Doleman.

All four of the #1 seeds in our tournament made it to the Sweet 16 in relatively easy fashion. Who's going to join them? Keep an eye on our tournament to find out!
