Episode 31: Matt Roberts, D1.Ticker



Matt Roberts has been quietly building a news and information business serving the needs of college athletics administration. The D1.Ticker, a daily curated newsletter serving Division 1 schools, is now in its 5th year. There’s also a D2 ticker serving Division 2 schools and a new service targeting Division 3 schools is 9 months old.

In addition to that there’s the 1Question podcast which I highly recommend for those in college sports administration, but it’s usually great for generalists like me too (here’s a link to the podcast with Glenn Wong, Sports Law Professor at Arizona State University.)

Topics discussed include:

— Is a pivot to video coming? (spoiler: no)

— Origins story of Matt’s newsletter empire and D1.Ticker

— The “sports rights bubble” and the broader college sports media landscape

— Louisville/Adidas/Pitino/Jurich

— All the turnover with athletic directors
