Knight News' mission statement says its original investigation was focused on UF and athletic director Scott Stricklin's actions on the College Football Playoff selection committee. The site says it had to hire a lawyer to get the UF athletic department (which functions as the University Athletic Association, independent of the university) to release emails "as a courtesy." It is worth noting that the UAA is not subject to the same public records laws as the university, something that has long frustrated journalists covering UF athletics.
The site claims that emails between Stricklin and Missouri's athletic director demonstrate a violation of antitrust laws. Knight News says the Exposing Insecurity investigation would "pick up where our investigation of UF left off."
