New webinar: Watchdogging Lions, Tigers, Bears, et al: Inside college sports

Jill Riepenhoff of The Columbus Dispatch shares tips on investigating college sports, from how to examine the rule book and find story ideas to using the NCAA's infraction database and digging into athletes' mysterious departures from their teams. Watch it here.

Riepenhoff has worked at The Columbus Dispatch since 1985 and as a projects reporter since 2004. She has investigated issues ranging from naughty teachers to naughty college athletes and coaches to naughty mortgage brokers. She's spent the past year peeling back the onion on the shadowy operations of the national credit-reporting agencies, which largely ignore complaints from consumers about errors on their credit reports. As a result, she's quite certain that her credit score now is somewhere south of 500.

"Watchdogging Lions, Tigers, Bears, et al: Inside college sports" is the latest in a series of webinars from IRE. You can view them at
