Unprecedented, end-to-end service offers student-athletes and campus community access to team of world-class investigators
College sports betting is facing integrity challenges that RealResponse and U.S. Integrity are meeting head on by partnered once again to protect intercollegiate athletics. Together, the Charlotte and Las Vegas/New York based companies, respectively, launched a robust service today aimed to protect student-athletes and universities associated with competitions nationwide. By offering a secure, private and fast process to report illegal forms of gambling-related activities, anonymous tips can be texted or emailed to the new service safeguarding games and matches from insider information, potential game manipulation or match fixing, and even physical threats. The platform’s goal is to assist with ensuring the integrity of fair competition for the more than 100,000 student-athletes with current availability to the free service. The Sports Techie community blog also urges coaches and program administrators to toe the line with suspicious sports bet related activities and report any questionable issues immediately knowing your personal identity cannot be seen by the recipient of your digital messages. The recent Alabama baseball betting scandal is just the tip of the iceberg as all collegiate sports are at risk, especially because of the big money associated with college football and college basketball.
The RealResponse community includes more than two million athletes, coaches, administrators, and staff, across college and professional sports, governing bodies, and integrity units
“With the significant rise of easy-to-use online and mobile sports betting, the challenges to fair competition are immense and growing,” said David Chadwick, founder and CEO of RealResponse. “Gambling is a major concern on college campuses—not just for student-athletes—and the potential harm to a student’s mental health and physical well-being is great. This expanded partnership with USI delivers instant support to student-athletes through a channel they already trust with sharing their most pressing needs and concerns.”
Clemson was the first Division I university to go all in with the RealResponse anonymous reporting platform.

More Gambling Protections
Starting today, RealResponse’s college athletics customers now have access to USI’s investigative support through the secure platform.
Like-minded institutions benefit from industry expertise on how best to navigate increased sports gambling activity at a critical juncture. After a report comes in through RealResponse, campus administrators can assign USI’s collegiate response team – comprised of highly trained professionals in the wager-monitoring space – to assess, verify and route the report to appropriate authorities within minutes.
Here are the details:
- The new service is free for existing RealResponse collegiate clients and is now accessible within their respective internal portals.
- As an additional paid service, colleges and universities can establish an institution-branded external portal to allow anyone – from parents to friends to competitors – to report gambling-related issues.
- RealResponse and USI will support colleges and universities in educating their communities about the integration of their solutions.
U.S. Integrity is a leading technology-driven sports wagering monitoring company, providing the highest level of protection against betting-related fraud and corruption. Investors include SeventySix Capital, Las Vegas Sands and the New York Angels.
“Nothing is more important than protecting the health and wellbeing of the student-athletes who have committed their lives to competing at the highest levels, while simultaneously pursuing a higher education,” said U.S. Integrity Co-Founder and CEO Matthew Holt. “This new solution brings the capabilities and experience of U.S. Integrity and RealResponse together, to do just that.”

Sports Techie, the Wall Street Journal Sports department did a deep dive investigation released last week regarding the Alabama baseball and then number 1 ranked LSU, and the youth baseball coach from Indiana that attempted to place a bet on that Bama game. Bert Eugene Neff Jr. tried to place a $100,000 bet at the BetMGM Sportsbook at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati. He was texting with Alabama coach Brad Bohannon and caught on film. Bohannon was later fired.
Not all collegiate sports gambling cases are lucky enough to have a digital trail and video evidence. This is why is takes concerned student-athletes, coaches, staff, officials, referees, administrators, donors, family and friends, to step up and courageously report possible misconduct to the RealResponse platform.
By doing so anonymously, these men and women can rest assured their reporting is both secure and private, enabling the USI experts to do their due diligence and investigate potential wrongdoings.
It’s not just money that is on the line, so too are eligibility, tuition and scholarships, earning a postseason berth and winning a legit championship, in addition to jobs, careers and the possibility of jail time.
When you think about physical intimidation, bullies, criminals and even the mobs can play a hand in fixing games.
Please have clarity and don’t allow corruption to infiltrate collegiate sports betting.
