THE INTERCOLLEGIATE IS A COLLEGE SPORTS MEDIA OUTLET COVERING THE ISSUES THAT TRULY MATTER.

We believe college sports deserves the kind of investigative and explanatory journalism and elevated analysis befitting any other multi-billion-dollar industry that touches every important part of our society and prevails over our public institutions of higher learning.

We produce content on three different platforms: 

  • This website, where we publish our long-form journalism and maintain an archive college sports-related public records and other documents.
  • The Intercollegiate Podcast, a weekly show that critically examines college sports, featuring conversations with experts, academics, athletes, journalists, advocates and other interested parties.
  • Extra Points, a freemium newsletter covering off-the-field college sports issues four days a week.

Behind-the-scenes, we actively collaborate with academics, students and other media outlets, in the hopes of bringing greater illumination and understanding to the factors that drive college sports, and how intercollegiate athletics intersects with American politics, public health, economics and higher ed.

The Intercollegiate was launched by Daniel Libit and Luke Cyphers on Oct. 28, 2019. On June 13, 2020, The Intercollegiate partnered with Matt Brown’s Extra Points newsletter.
