Nothing explains America better than college football.

This illustrated ebook (rough equivalent of a 270-page book) lays out the history of big-money amateurism via fiction and non-fiction at the same damn time.

The Sinful Seven is about control and capital, but also about bandidas, explosions, zombies, mystical technology, haunted Western mythology, bizarre cuisine, college football internet jokes, and a real bastard or two.

It's like this:

There is a train. We're gonna try and rob it. Along the way, we'll learn about NC State's stolen Orange Bowl, all the moments that could've resulted in something besides the NCAA, and SMU ponying up 'til the end.

The Sinful Seven is good, actually

"Come for Spencer with an Old West yarn that's actually about the NCAA's Sanity Code. Stay for Richard on Jack Trice." -- Andy Staples

"You should do yourself a favor and check this out." -- Mike Golic Jr.

"Oh you haven't bought The Sinful Seven yet? Do you even like college football?" -- Michael Felder

"Extremely good and wild." -- Jordan Ginsberg

"It's good. Buy it." -- Charles McDonald

"I laughed a lot. I learned a lot, too. The way it weaves real-life history, clever symbolism, and straight-up fiction together is beyond impressive. It's weird. It's chaotic. It's impactful." -- Justin Ferguson

"Purchase The Sinful Seven today or your favorite team will lose to their rival every game for the next decade." -- Harry Lyles Jr.

"Amazing! Just a fun read." -- Caroline Darney

"There exists space for comedy in tragedy. The one only heightens the effect of the other, and it's this tension that brings The Sinful Seven home." -- Jim Lohmar

"It's good. You need it." -- Sarah Kelly

"It's the fever dream college football book we all need right now." -- Ace Anbender
