Default Probably a Pipedream, but Looking for Big Name University Contacts?

I will be writing a research paper this semester on whether college athletes should be paid, and need a couple interviews.

I could conduct interviews with coaches or athletic staff in my area but since they're Division III I'm not sure the issue is near as relevant to them as it would be at say Iowa and UNI (in my home state). I know they're not Alabama or Duke but it's the best I can do.

I've also considered trying to contact guys like ESPN's Andy Katz or another national columnist/expert on the issue but am not sure how to go about it (guessing that's more unlikely than anything).

I DID just place a call to the University of Iowa's and UNI's respective basketball departments but am not sure what I can get done.

Any ideas?

I've definitely considered that but couldn't a random tweet too easily be overlooked though? How do I make mine stand out to the point where it will be addressed?

I can't send DM because none of the people I follow (the national guys in the media)follow me.
