Winner of the 2011 Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Fact Crime Book
Scoreboard, Baby: A Story of College Football, Crime, and Complicity:
Scoreboard, Baby exposes the rot beneath a celebrated season -- and the ruins left behind, showing how a community’s blind embrace of a football team compromised judges, prosecutors, police agencies, a proud university and the media.
The University of Wisconsin-Platteville chose Scoreboard, Baby as its Campus Read for fall 2013. Freshmen read and discussed the book, and Ken Armstrong visited the campus for a presentation and Q&A. In February 2014, the Young Adult Library Services Association named Scoreboard, Baby one of its “Outstanding Books for the College Bound and Lifelong Learners.”
“The most harrowing book I have ever read about college sports.”
–Buzz Bissinger, author of Friday Night Lights
