Flim Flam (borrowed from the famous Ole Miss “Hotty Toddy” cheer) is a real-life David and Goliath story where Steve Robertson, a Mississippi State football recruiting writer, found himself in the middle of the biggest NCAA scandal college football has seen in a generation, and likely the most flagrant instance of infractions since the SMU death penalty case Feb. 25, in 1987. The circumstances surrounding this case are larger-than-life. Flim Flam exposes the ugly side of recruiting, and is a testament to the current climate of illegal football recruiting. It is a thought-provoking, down-and-dirty account of the reward of hard investigative journalism. The book is reality-based with no embellishment of truth. The writing style includes frequent down-home phrases, and raw language of the football world. Illustrations, including individual, family, and archival photographs, will be included to add dimension to Robertson’s story.

STEVE ROBERTSON has covered Mississippi State and college football recruiting in the state of Mississippi for over 20 years. Robertson has worked for Genespage.com since 2001 and has developed a considerable following among Bulldog fans, as well as college football fans, throughout the Southeastern Conference. Stark Villains is Robertson’s second book. His first book is entitled Flim Flam. Steve and his wife Dana have four children and live in Starkville, Mississippi.
