Minnesota became known as the "Gopher State" in 1857, the result of a political cartoon ridiculing the $5 million Railroad Loan which helped open up the West. The cartoon portrayed shifty railroad barons as striped gophers pulling a railroad car carrying the Territorial Legislature toward the "Slough of Despond". By the 1920s, Minnesota's athletic teams became widely known as the "Gophers", football coach Clarence “Biggie” Spears appears to have been given credit, as he called the football team the Gophers in 1926. However, it was not until 1934 that Halsey Hall, great Minnesota sportswriter and broadcaster, dubbed Bernie Bierman's all-gold uniformed team "The Golden Gophers". Bierman was a legendary Minnesota coach who changed the team’s jerseys to match the color of a football—gold.
