It appeared, on paper, to be one of the closer battles of the second round of our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament, and it didn't disappoint. In a battle between two legendary offensive linemen, one of them had to get sent home, and this match-up determined which one it would be.
Randall McDaniel was triumphant over Ron Yary in their second round match-up in our tournament. When everything was finally totaled up, McDaniel found himself with 102 "recs" from our readers, compared to just 80 "recs" for Yary. The match-up was relatively even throughout, but the big man from Arizona State eventually pulled away to best the former #1 overall pick.
McDaniel's victory gives us what would have been a heck of a match-up to see in the trenches between these guys in their prime, as he will face off against defensive tackle Alan Page for the right to move to the Elite 8.
We're nearly through the second round of our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament, ladies and gentlemen. Keep your eye out for more action!
