Join us as we welcome Steve Robertson, author of FLIM FLAM: The Truth Behind the Blind-Faith Culture that Led to the Explosive NCAA Investigation of Ole Miss Football.
As the subtitle suggests, Flim Flam deals with the deeper issues of illegal football recruiting—a culture of corruption. Travel with Robertson as he navigates through the maze of coverups, lies, intimidations, and death threats.
Rooted in the heart of Southeastern Conference country, Mississippi State football recruiting writer, Steve Robertson, was drawn into likely the most flagrant instance of infractions since the 1987 SMU death penalty case. The circumstances surrounding the Ole Miss case are larger-than-life. The NCAA’s four-year investigation has produced allegations of academic fraud, pay-for-play, clothing, cash, hotel rooms, cars, lies, and cover-ups. Then came the escorts.
Flim Flam (borrowed from the famous Ole Miss “Hotty Toddy” cheer) is a real-life David and Goliath story of how Robertson found himself in the middle of the biggest NCAA scandal college football has seen in decades. In what could be the most remarkable job of investigative journalism in Mississippi sports history, Robertson scooped all other media outlets, and became THE go-to guy for inside facts regarding the NCAA investigation.
Flim Flam is reality-based with no embellishment of truth. It is destined to become the definitive historical document of the events of the past four years. Get your copy signed at Ernest & Hadley Books; the perfect gift for the football fans in your life!
