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.
