About the Author

Ken Armstrong is a reporter for the Seattle Times, as was Nick Perry from 2002 until 2011. Perry is now a correspondent for the Associated Press. Their investigative work on the 2000 Huskies won two of journalism's highest honors: the George Polk Award and the Michael Kelly Award, recognizing "the fearless pursuit and expression of truth." In 2010 Armstrong and Perry shared in the Pulitzer Prize for breaking news reporting, which was awarded to the staff of the Seattle Times for its coverage of the shooting deaths of four police officers. Armstrong won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize in explanatory reporting and is a three-time winner of the Investigative Reporters and Editors Award. He previously worked at the Chicago Tribune, where he co-wrote six series on criminal-justice issues, including an investigation of the death penalty that helped prompt the state's governor to suspend executions and eventually to empty Death Row. In 2009 he received the prestigious John Chancellor Award from Columbia University for lifetime achievement.
Perry has won national journalism awards in both New Zealand, his homeland, and the United States, where he has specialized in covering higher education. He was named a Knight-Wallace Fellow at the University of Michigan for the 2010-11 academic year.


"The most harrowing book I have ever read about college sports." Buzz Bissinger, author of Friday Night Lights "A terrific work of investigative reporting and a vital public service. I finished it at once infuriated and enlightened." David Maraniss, author of When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi "This is a world-class job of reporting... Ken Armstrong and Nick Perry have made a page-turning story of what happens off the field while we are celebrating in the stands." Richard Ben Cramer, author of Joe DiMaggio: The Hero's Life "The great fraud of 'student-athletes,' higher education, and big-time football has never been detailed better than in "Scoreboard, Baby"... Theirs is a vivid, cautionary tale that, sadly, plays out in so many college athletic departments." Frank Deford, Sports Illustrated senior contributing writer and author of Everybody's All-American
