Seth Davis Explains Why He Joined The Athletic, Believes in Market for National College Coverage

Seth Davis, who announced today that he is joining The Athletic (which we covered in-depth recently), and launching a national college basketball site, joined the podcast. We discussed:

  • What was the recruiting process like?
  • How big does he envision his staff being?
  • College basketball (and college football) have reputations for being regional sports. How can they get readers to invest in subscriptions for national coverage?
  • Would he support a model for college players to sign endorsement and sponsorship deals?
  • What college basketball venue or matchup should be number 1 on the bucket list?

Here is the link to Davis’s site, which is entitled The Fieldhouse.
