One Of The Best

Bierman undoubtedly deserves a place in the pantheon of elite college coaches. He guided Minnesota to six Big Ten championships, five national championships and five undefeated seasons. His Gophers won league titles in four of five seasons between 1937-41, going 8-0 in each of the final two years. Bierman had average results in early stops at Montana and Mississippi State before guiding Tulane to a 28-2 mark between 1929-31. He then returned to his alma mater at Minnesota and cemented a Hall of Fame career. Bierman once said he "never made an emotional speech" in his life. Judging by how much his teams won, he had no need to. -- Adam Rittenberg
