You don’t have to be a full-time sports reporter to investigate athletes. This week we’re looking at sports investigations on several levels: college, military and professional. Join us for tips on getting around secretive athletics departments and digging deeper when players get in trouble. Here’s the lineup:

  • Tom Roeder of the Colorado Springs Gazette discusses “Broken Code,” his investigation into the Air Force Academy’s athletics program.
  • Jill Riepenhoff of the Columbus Dispatch explains how she tracked speeding tickets of Ohio State athletes.
  • Brent Schrotenboer of USA Today Sports talks about investigating football team doctors.
