    Default OT - John Gagliardi dies

    Obviously not NSIC, but the winningest coach in College Football History, the most significant sports figure in Central Minnesota and a man who casts a very long shadow across all of lower-division football in Minnesota. He will be missed. Tom Linneman wrote a great article for The Athletic in his memory.

    I played for Coach Malosky in the mid 1970s we were still in the MIAC, had great games vs St. Johns. We went full go with pads everyday day, I heard SJU practiced without pads and did not hit in practice, I remember thinking why the heck was I at UMD. Gag was one of the few coaches that had a winning record vs Coach Mo.

    I loved John's coaching philosophy. "Winning with no" https://sites.google.com/site/coachj...e/list-of-no-s
