Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament: Bud Grant Advances

David Boss-USA TODAY Sports

In what really doesn't come as very much of a surprise, the greatest coach in the history of the Minnesota Vikings made it a clean sweep for the number one seeds in our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament.

Bud Grant scored a relatively easy victory over Chris Doleman to move on to the Elite 8 of our tournament. When the vote totals were finalized, Coach Grant managed to come out with 145 "recs" from our readers, while Doleman could only manage 38 "recs." A lot of folks expressed a lot of respect for Doleman and his accomplishments while wearing the purple and gold, but there was no way they could deny what Bud Grant has meant to Minnesota Vikings football over the years.

In the Elite 8, Bud Grant will take on a top-notch defensive player, as he'll be taking on the winner of the battle between defensive tackle John Randle and defensive end Carl Eller for a trip to our Final Four.

Half of our Elite 8 is set, ladies and gentlemen. We'll work on figuring out the other half when our "2 vs 3" match-ups start on Monday, August 5.
