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.
Mitch and Jayson go back to school with popular UND sociology professor Frank White. The guys discuss the many issues facing today's student and athlete, including race, politics, the use of performance-enhancing and recreational drugs, and the ever-changing classroom environment. Frank also talks about how sports led him directly into the teaching profession, his favorite athletics memories spanning 30-plus years at UND, why his sociology classes are so popular among athletes, the time Mike Commodore crashed a lecture with the Stanley Cup, and more! Do you know another professor who has his own bobblehead? We didn't think so, so you better give this a listen.
