Congratulations to Nick Perry ’11 and his co-author Ken Armstrong.  Their book, “Scoreboard, Baby: A Story of College Football, Crime and Complicity,” was named the winner of the Edgar Allan Poe award for Best Fact Crime book of 2010. Perry and Armstrong chronicle the University of Washington’s march to the 2001 Rose Bowl and answer one of sports’ most enduring questions: If winning is everything, what are we left with? “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.
