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.
We visit with North Dakota junior center Carson Shanks – also known as Big Fudge and Big Zen – about the Big Dance. We get his thoughts on the looming tourney matchup with Arizona, why he wanted to face Weber State for the Big Sky Championship, how an early-season blowout loss turned the season around, the newfound hoops fever in Grand Forks and what kick-started it all, why Brian Jones won’t let him sleep on airplanes, which teammate has the biggest fear of flying, who he confided in during a rough personal stretch last season, his biggest assist from Quinton Hooker, Adrian Peterson’s future, Ken Bone, Tyler Hansbrough, and more.
New episodes premiere every week, usually on Thursdays. Follow @SitDownAndCheer and @UNDInsider on twitter to keep up-to-date on the newest episodes and news about the podcast. You can also follow the hosts on Twitter @UNDSID (Jayson) and @MitchWigness (Mitch)
