UND Athletics' official podcast presented by Buffalo Wild Wings. Our fight song is Stand Up & Cheer but sitting down is much less work. Every week, Jayson Hajdu and Mitch Wigness talk about everything with the biggest personalities from all aspects of UND Sports, past and present.
Episode 82 - Eric Schmidt and Christine Engel
It’s THAT week. UND/NDSU football happens Saturday and we get you prepped with former UND linebacker and current defensive coordinator Eric Schmidt. He’ll give us the insight on THE game, his memories of the series as a player, some breakdown from the first-week rout of Drake and much more. He says it doesn’t matter what the scoreboard says as long as its UND in front, but we challenge him on that based on a 2001 playoff game vs. UC Davis. We also caught up with new UND head track and field and cross country coach Christine Engel to get her thoughts on their opening meet down in Fargo last week and a host of other topics to include: North Dakota topography, weather, jogging (it might be soft J), and if it’s Clem-son or Clem-zon. All that on the fifth season’s first episode of Sit Down and Cheer. Oh yeah, and we got a new co-host (Darrin Looker). You know him as the public address announcer at UND hockey games, you know, HEEEEERRRRRRRRE’S your University of North Dakota SCOOOOOOOOORING guy.
Episode 81 - Co-Host Search 2019: Paul Ralston
The search for a new co-host continues as Mitch brings UND Sports Radio man Paul Ralston on to the pod. Mitch and Paul talk about the 2019 UND Sports Hall of Fame inductees including Lee Davidson, Jessica (Neva) Gardner, Gene Roebuck, Robert Toftey, Tisha (Yantzer) Lezer, and the 1998-99 national championship women's basketball team. Additionally, current Minnesota State Moorhead head women's basketball coach Karla Nelson will receive the Tom Clifford Award, while longtime UND superfan Loyall Jahnke will be recognized with the Honorary Letterwinner Award.
Episode 80 - Co-Host Search 2019: Darrin Looker
With Jayson gone, Mitch starts his search for a new co-host. This week, he sits down with UND Hockey public address announcer Darrin Looker.
Episode 79 - I Bid You Hajdu Part III
Its the final part of the trilogy of farewell podcasts (See Bill Chaves Podcasts for parts I & II) as Jayson spends one of his final days with Mitch and special guest Brad Schlossman at Buffalo Wild Wings reminiscing about his career at North Dakota.
Episode 78 - Gene Roebuck, Kami Winger Danner, Tiffany Pudenz Mannausau, and Katie Richards
Paul Ralston sits down with members from the 1997, 1998, and 1999 women's basketball teams that each claimed a NCAA Division II National Championship.
Episode 77 - Dick Clay
In his 34th and final season at North Dakota, cross country coach Dick Clay reflects on his career as the longest-tenured coach in the history of UND Athletics. He discusses what went into his decision to retire, why his one and only season in The Summit League holds special meaning to him, what drives his former runners to give back to the program, what has changed for student-athletes since his career started, his fondest road trip memories, the innocuous conversation that sparked his team at the NCAA DII Championship, and so much more. Join us for this trip down memory lane with a UND coaching legend. Presented by Buffalo Wild Wings.
