Sit Down and Cheer is one of the University of North Dakota Athletics' official podcasts, and a member of the @UNDinsider Podcast Network. Our fight song is Stand Up & Cheer but this is less work.
Part two of the football media day frenzy sees three coaches run the gamut with Mitch and special co/host Greg Enkers. Defensive backs coach Travis Stepps chats about the talented secondary, the impact of losing Deion Harris and how that affects that group and some guys that are stepping up in his absence. We also get both coordinators, getting insight from defensive coordinator Eric Schmidt who gets to try to scheme against the wide-open offenses in the Big Sky Conference. We discuss that and how the shuffling in the linebacking corps is looking heading into fall camp. Offensive coordinator Paul Rudolph has a host of weapons at his disposal including a pair of all-league running backs in John Santiago and Brady Oliveira. Add Austin Gordon and James Johannesson to the mix and UND has a backfield that will be the envy of every FCS program. How to get those guys touches and some creative play calling are discussed as well as how the steady play of the receiver group equals success, both for the team and starting QB Keaton Studsrud.
