Take me out...

Have any of you thought/talked about putting in a carefully targeted sports component? Not game coverage but some kind of niche commitment to a watchdog role. I guess this would focus mainly on UConn, a big time sports program where, I think it could be argued, the paid press doesn't really like to poke around all that much, so that the big story of the year -- before the Jasper Howard case -- was broken by Yahoo! Sports.
During the Calhoun-Krayeske run-in, the sports press largely bought Calhloun's claim about $12 million without even asking for proof. Other non-sports reporters had to go in and dig up the numbers.
And so on.
Maybe there's a vacuum.
